Zoosk: 5 reasons online dating sites are better than a matchmaker

Zoosk has published an article where they explain why online dating is better than using a matchmaking service.

1. Matchmakers and expensive – even the cheapest ones charge you around $2,000 in the US. While online dating sites are a fraction of the cost.

2. Dating sites have a larger pool of singles – first matchmaking services are less popular than dating sites which makes their audience smaller, plus matchmakers usually works with singles in some particular area which diminishes the pool of singles even further.

3. Dating is a numbers game – current online dating is all about trying and trying, different people, different interests. In the end, the quantity will change into quality. While matchmakers offer 3-5 dates over the course of six months or so.

4. The nature of today’s world – dating becoming one of the most popular ways for singles to meet. And the influence of it is getting larger and larger.

5. The real-life success stories – because dating sites have a bigger audience, success stories are more common than matchmaking services. Successful love stories between people met through matchmaking are not widespread as well, which makes matchmaking look unreliable.
