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.
The dating services industry includes several different segments.
Online Dating Websites: Sites such as Match.com, Plenty of Fish, e Harmony, and hundreds more bring affordable and convenient matchmaking services to America’s 124 million singles.
Dating Apps: Smartphones have brought online dating into the hands of thousands of Millennials through popular new apps.

One of the world’s oldest professions is matchmaking, and given the role of technology in today’s world, it’s no surprise that the industry is booming.
