"In the era dominated by the conventionless hookup culture, online dating is a very direct way of making it clear that you’re not interested in pursuing the status quo. You don’t want to shut up and hookup, you want to go out to dinner. You want to date. That is doing wonders for monogamy.
Trust me, if you’re sick of the meaningless bar crawling and hooking up, and genuinely want to meet someone, online dating is the way to go. Give it a whirl. What have you got to lose?””
