What's Trending Now?

Internet dating sites are among the biggest business income generators today, with revenue generation running into millions of dollars. In a mobile, less-structured society, less oriented to family-networks, such sites have become the place to find a date – whether you're a busy professional, senior citizen with restricted mobility or from any geographical location, social class, religious, financial or ethnic background, looking for a short-term flirtation or serious commitment – you'll find a match.

Some new trends in this field are:

Niche markets: There's literally something for everyone today. Super-efficient search engines, key-word searches, algorithm-matching, etc have all made it possible for you to get much more out of an hour's browsing than you could have ever got a couple of years ago.

Non-Specific Dating Sites: There's a lot of overlap between social networking sites and these sites these days. With shared features like avatar-IDs, many social networking sites double up as date-finders and vice versa.

Tech-Explosion: With huge tech advances and user-friendly interfaces, it's possible even for those less tech-savvy to avail of services like web chat, texting, micro-blogging etc. Hi-tech Internet dates include virtual dream-dates in a romantic venue like Venice or a Pacific island, where your avatars can interact and mimic a real-life situation. Video-dates are another tech innovation, where the site allows users to have short-term video chats.

Ad Sense: Earlier, free sites were not very favorably looked-upon, but with today's trends of self-servicing ad budgets, and the slight drop in spending trends on paid service sites, these free sites are more popular. They may also have part-paid formats, self-advertising, additional value-add features etc to enhance your browsing and dating experiences.

Seniors Rule! Senior citizens or the Baby Boomer generation is one of the most rapidly growing profiles in such websites. They are financially stable, have better health-care, longevity, education and interests, lesser family obligations.

Current market trends indicate that the numbers are slightly skewed in favor of more women on these websites than men, so advertising spending is also tilted towards more products targeting women.

Assistants: Some sites offer the services of assistants who prepare profiles, sends initial emails and messages till the parties are comfortable with each other.

Security and Background checks: Some sites offer background checks for people who want them conducted on potential partners. These have to be authorized and fulfill proper government regulations and not countermand invasion of privacy laws.

Cyber Dating is an evolving phenomenon and it would be useful to keep up with current trends as you continue your quest for the perfect partner.
