Dating apps not always responsible in ruining long-term relationships

New York – A new study published in the journal PLOS ONE, has shown that people who met their partners on dating mobile applications have often strong long-term relationship goals, negating common perception these apps only encourage casual relationships. They also encourage socio-educational and geographical mixing.
Researcher Gina Potarca from University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland said: “The Internet is profoundly transforming the dynamics of how people meet. It provides an unprecedented abundance of meeting opportunities, and involves minimal effort and no third-party intervention.” These new dating technologies include smartphone apps like Tinder or Grindr, where users select partners by browsing and swiping on pictures.
She decided to investigate couples’ intentions to start a family, their relationship satisfaction and individual well-being, as well as to assess couple composition. Potarca used a 2018 family survey by the Swiss Federal Statistical Office. The analysis presented in this study looks at a sub-sample of 3,235 people over the age of 18 who were in a relationship and who had met their partner in the last decade. Potarca said: “Knowing that dating apps have likely become even more popular during this year’s periods of lockdown and social distancing, it is reassuring to dismiss alarming concerns about the long-term effects of using these tools.”
