Dennis and Mary Jo Weiss have been married for more than 30 years. They write about a shared love of nature, prayer, and their children and grandchildren from their home in Hamburg, New York. In this group we gather together with four other couples on a monthly basis to share a meal, spend time in prayer and discuss whatever spiritual enrichment book we have chosen to devote our year to studying. It seems there is a great deal to share some months, which is not surprising when you consider that there are eighteen children and three grandchildren amongst our five couples.
Online dating has become more and more popular with the use of apps such as Tinder, Bumble, Happn and Plenty of Fish. Literally anyone can join using their Facebook account or even their phone number. So why are we using dating apps? Thats just not for me. And this is where online dating becomes useful.
Years ago, getting involved in a relationship with someone you met online was a bit of a taboo. Not only was it supposedly for weirdos, but it was also seen as a bit dangerous, since you couldn't tell who was on the other end. These days, however, online dating is not just mainstream; it's almost expected. Young professionals are often too busy to go to singles clubs and bars not to mention these venues aren't for everyone and it's just easier to use an app like Tinder than whip up pickup lines.
Online dating has become the most popular way of finding love in the digital age. Most of us lead busy lives juggling: work, social life and family. We may come to a stage in life when most of our friends are in relationships with or without children. Meeting up involves going round each others houses or going out to eat and drink and catch up.
