According to Our World In Data, the population has more than quadrupled over the past century. That means there are more people to sort through while dating than ever before. Previously, between friends, family, and career there were just enough options to find an array of people to date.

Nowadays, it’s more about narrowing down the options as efficiently as possible. That’s what has attracted many to online dating. Sites like eHarmony promise to match you with suitors based on common interests, ideally, so you don’t have to waste your time.
