I've decided to organize the statistics and facts into two main areas.
The first which starts on this page will deal with the general online dating industry as a whole.
You might even go on dates to move along with your life, until suddenly ... About a year ago, the website Prime Mind defined the term: “To be zombied is to have someone you care about disappear from your life altogether only to have them bring a relationship back from the dead with an out-of-the-blue text or interaction on social media.” Washington Post, wrote about her experience being zombied for the first time in her column Monday.
She said she had casually made plans to see someone, but when the day came around, he ignored all of her messages.
During the past 10 years it’s become very common now to socialize online.
If you're entering the dating landscape in today's era of app-based dating, you've probably felt the frustration of trying to communicate with a potential match, only to have it go totally awry.
Maybe you've been ghosted (ignored) or breadcrumbed (strung along).
In the worst cases, they will visibly "read" your message and fail to respond.
After a while, you might give up on the ghost ("Good riddance", you think) and start talking to someone else.
