A new study shows that one in three relationships start out online.

According to an article by Tony Castro for the Los Angeles Daily News:

“Between 2007 and 2009 alone, the study titled “The Rise of the Internet as a Social Intermediary” found that just under 30 percent of couples in the survey met their partners online. Only friends help to hook up more couples than the Internet these days.”

Also, “All told, 40 million Americans look at online dating sites each month, with online dating revenues growing 10 percent to 15 percent per year and, according to Piper Jaffray & Co., on pace to hit $1.9 billion within three years — marking a revolution in the way people meet and court one another.

Dating sites on the Web now claim they are responsible for one out of every five new relationships, and Pasadena-based eHarmony maintains that every day an average of 236 singles marry a match they met on the site.”
