Is online better than offline for meeting partners? Depends: are you looking to marry or to date? (4/7)

Many online dating platforms tout statistics that suggest couples who met online are more satisfied in their relationships, but the author of this study, Aditi Paul, PhD, believes those statistics are flawed, too narrow and don’t accurately measure “satisfaction” or what success means/looks like in a relationship. To conduct a more thorough approach to her research, Paul explored “(a) the different types of relationships being formed as a result of meeting partner online versus offline, (b) the differences in relationship dissolution as a function of relationship type and meeting venue, and (c) factors outside of meeting online or offline that can explain relationship dissolution” (Paul, 2014, p. 665).
