With the proliferation of online dating services, do we just have too much choice?“I think because [decision making in dating apps] is so fast paced we've conditioned people to just wonder, ‘what's next? “I think a lot of people my age are concerned that the person that they're on a date with is thinking, ‘is there something better? ’” “So true,” agreed Allison Norris, a 28 year-old single woman living in Melbourne. They were pretty open about it.” In the face of so much choice, users aren’t afraid to be picky and quick in their decisions – perhaps, somewhat paradoxically, contributing to singledom numbers.“Whereas women I find are a lot pickier and most of the men that I've spoken to about it are pretty open about saying that they will just say yes until they get a yes.” Warren Giffin, a 53 year-old school teacher laments the mystery of older forms of dating, where a potential match wasn’t ruled out so quickly.“When we used to date when we were in our 20s like it was all just a mystery and that was sort of the excitement of it,” he says.Finally, you’ll take the plunge and meet your new match in person.
It then narrows down people who share the same interests, whether you’re after professional singles, fellow single parents, or people who share your love for the same sports, music or even cuisine.“Whereas now with the dating apps, it's sort of like the check list scenario: people are being crossed off, and I know sort of a lot of it's probably fairly valid stuff, but before you even get the chance to see them in person.” An audience member agreed that for all online dating’s possibilities, it could be limiting in finding the right partner. and being able to narrow it down from the start really denies yourself the opportunity to grow through the relationship and to have a meaningful relationship,” he said.Hugh Mackay, a social researcher specialising in this area, speculates these trends might be part of a bigger social shift valorising individualism.That’s why at e Harmony we help to take away the guessing game behind meeting new people.
With a population of 22m and an area spanning over 7.5 million km², Australia’s vastness makes finding someone who shares your unique tastes and interests seem like a mammoth task.The latter says it can raise its revenues in Australia by 50 per cent over 2017/18, such is the potential in our market.The increasing number of people wedding themselves to the world of online dating has coincided with another increase: the number of singles in Australia.“There's been a lot of references to freedom and independence and loss of stigma about being a solo person and the multiplicity of choice,” he explains to Jenny Brockie.
