Online dating sites are gaining more popularity among college students.
But the two have not always been so good.
Online dating is gaining in popularity, but the two apps have different features, CBS News’ Jeff Mason reports.
Students who like to go online for a date can find the perfect match by asking questions online, and the dating apps provide a variety of features for each type of relationship.
But many students have turned to dating apps to meet new people and find relationships, Mason says.
Some of the biggest apps for dating include OkCupid, Match.com, Plenty of Fish and Tinder.
Others include Bumble, Friendster, MySpace and Square.
College students often look to meet others in a safe and secure environment.
College campuses are full of people who want to meet people, but many of them also have friends and family members who are willing to meet in person.
Students often look for people by searching for their friends on Facebook, texting them and checking in on their cell phones.
Students also can look for relationships by searching by their first names, last names and age group.
But students have found that dating apps don’t always match up with people.
Some college students say the best thing about dating is that you can find someone you like and make a lasting connection.
Students are often searching for dates online to meet like-minded people, and are willing go online with a friend, Mason reports for CBS News.
But for other students, the best way to meet is through text messaging.
If you find a person on Facebook or by looking for their Facebook profile, you can chat with them face-to-face and build a lasting relationship, Mason writes for CBSNews.com.
You can also meet someone in person, though some colleges are making it harder for students to meet face- to-face.
In fact, at many colleges, students are being forced to meet with people through text messages.
Last year, the Association of American Colleges and Universities, a nonprofit association of higher education institutions, launched a website to allow students to find dating apps.
Some students find dating websites useful because they help them meet people that they like online, Mason notes.
The websites allow students a way to connect with people online that they would not have the chance to meet without text messaging, Mason reported.
“You get to meet really nice people,” student Zachary Waugh told CBSNews senior correspondent Jeff Mason.
“It’s just like you meet someone at your house.
I’ve found that you get to connect and make it real.”
College students have also found that texting is not the best dating method, Mason explains.
Many colleges now require students to use a cell phone when dating.
Many students find texting annoying, but they still use it, Mason wrote.
The best thing to do is find people you like online.
The people you find online are often the people you want to spend time with, Mason said.
