Choosing an online love interest allows users to be very picky in terms of the qualities they are looking for in a partner.

Online dating is also a signifier of the time-poor society we live in because it allows users to “shop” for a lover at any time that is convenient for them.

Although this sample will provide only a snapshot of a very particular area (city of Ottawa and the Plenty of Fish community) from the male point of view, it demonstrates the overall phenomenon of online dating communities and will display concepts common to the general experience of online daters involved in Internet dating communities.

This is a hermeneutical phenomenological study wherein the central purpose is to interpret and describe the user’s experience of the Plenty of Fish online dating community.

As for delimitations, I will focus specifically on the free online dating community, Plenty of Fish, and users who are aged 23-30 living in Ottawa, Ontario.

Linda and Richard Thompson's marriage was fiery – so much so that Nick Hornby began a script about the legendary folk rockers. This seminal episode has stayed with her ever since. Perhaps it tells her that, almost from the beginning, she has known she is always game for a mugging? "I've never thought of that before." She isn't a mug at all, and never has been. You can tell that just from listening to her new album, Versatile Heart, which is the best work she's done in more than 30 years: a sad, funny, wise, wounded but redoubtable record of a lifetime's-worth of seeing things for what they really are; or at least trying to.… continue reading »

There are too many women and they’re all too easy to make it worthwhile.” I was reminded of this while reading Vanity Fair’s much-publicized piece, “Tinder and the Dating Apocalypse,” which naively blames today’s “hookup culture” on the popularity of a three-year-old dating app.… continue reading »
