In our Love App-tually series , Mashable shines a light into the foggy world of online dating. It is cuffing season after all. Let's be real: Ain't nobody got time to waste on online dating. Yet for busy single people, dating apps and websites feel like a necessary evil to meeting people. How else are you going to do it?
Online dating has been in existence for over two decades. In that time frame, it has experienced consistent year-over-year growth. Approximately three-quarters of the singles who are presently below the age of 30 have used an online dating platform at least once. All these statements are not mere claims, they are fact.

The appeal was often dismissed, despite the apparent popularity of online dating. But those millions of people looking for intimacy on these sites, do they really have a shot at happiness or are they just wasting their time until they get to the point where they feel hopeless about their online dating ventures?
