6 Reasons Why Women Love Online Dating

PEW Research states that 1 in 5 American adults between the ages of 25 and 24 have used online dating at some point. That’s a lot of people! Each year the percentage of people using online dating grows more and more. So, why the popularity? In this post, we’re looking specifically at women.

Since you met online and have been exchanging messages online (presumably, at least) it’s completely fine to end the relationship in the same fashion. If you’ve met offline or have been talking on the phone, however, your match might be deserving of a slightly more thorough explanation than a quick IM.

How to Deal with an Age Gap in Your Relationship

It has long been socially accepted that men tend to be slightly older than their female partners. Studies have attributed the pairings to a number of causes, one being the idea that women tend to mature quicker than men and therefore, the younger woman/older man combination ends up being pretty on par where maturity is concerned. These days, it’s also become quite common for a female to end up with a younger male. And why shouldn’t she?
