The Internet is the biggest thing to happen to courtship in the past 100 years – and perhaps since the agricultural revolution thousands of years ago, says Justin Garcia, Ph.D., of the Kinsey Institute. By the time you two meet, you’ve already been flirting for hours, courting with emails, texts, even emojis. You can learn tonnes about a person – job, romantic history, cocktail preferences—before the first date. And it shows: our recent survey showed that more than half of dating app users met their last partner online; meanwhile, 43 percent say technology has helped their sex life, while only four percent say it’s made it worse. But Tinder won’t do all the work for you. “They’re not dating sites. They’re ‘introducing’ sites,” says Fisher, an advisor to Match.com. It’s still up to you to meet, listen, flirt and charm. Your great profile pic is no match for your dazzling personality.

“Women are beginning to demand good sex. They’re not just lying back and thinking of England.”
