Like all technology, these applications are double-edged swords.
This blog (Part 1 of 2) is a look at the future of sex, dating, and finding a mate.
(Go here for a great online dating infographic.) These services transcend geography and social strata. Between 19, there was exponential growth among heterosexual couples meeting online.
(See the green line in the first chart here.) For same-sex couples, the online dating trend has been even more dramatic, with more than 60% of same-sex couples meeting online in 20. The implications of this are staggering — besides moving the marriage age back, there are a number of sociological effects such as decision fatigue, gamification of dating, and the commoditization of people that will start to have population-level effects as mating behaviors change. In the very near future, we will see machine learning / artificial intelligence-based matchmakers that will find the perfect match for you based upon everything from your genomics to your psychographics.
Once you're on a date, your augmented reality glasses will give you real-time dating info, calling up any info you want to know, as you need to know it.
