When I burst my college bubble by moving to SF, I realized that everyone here is signed up for at least one dating app, and if they aren’t, it’s because they’ve been in a serious relationship for forever and are no longer in the market.Back home, people weren’t nearly as turned on to the idea of online dating, but here, it’s completely the norm.In my opinion, users of dating apps are actually being proactive about finding someone. Online Dating Takes Away The Nerves Call me crazy, but I get super nervous meeting people for the first time because you never know if you’re just going to be friends or something more.Online dating shouldn’t feel “artificial” because it is just an alternative way to meet people. Eye contact is one of the first ways to tell if someone likes you, and that can be a tricky gesture to understand clearly.Some have compared it to Facebook -- pointing out that the social network was also open to only college students when it began.But Alexa insists Date My School is not the next Facebook.Of course there is absolutely no bias here, but CMB really was the best app that I used as a single gal in SF.It took away my nerves and gave me a better understanding of how amazing online dating is. Check out this blog about an engaged couple that met on CMB!
Isn’t it strange that meeting someone at a bar is considered more romantic than finding them online?"The guys place the same priority on education and the same passion for their careers as I do," Hirner said."We're also at similar places in our lives, being students, which makes it easier to relate." Columbia University students Balazs Alexa and Jean Meyer started the dating website on campus in November.(CNN) -- Though they had perhaps crossed paths several times on campus, it was only when Andy Lalinde was scrolling through images of cute girls online that the one with brunette hair standing in some South American country caught his eye. With nothing to lose, Lalinde wrote a funny message proclaiming his love for nurses and hit send. While they could have passed each other walking to class, it took -- an online dating website exclusively for college students -- to bring them together and officially exchange vows on April 29.He opened her profile and saw her name was Michelle Przybyski. One walk of four hours with Lalinde's dog, Domino, around campus and a date at the library (that didn't really involve studying) later, the two Columbia University graduate students applied for a marriage license in New York just 10 days after meeting in person. With countless dating websites such as match.com, and okcupid.com, the online dating market is a bit crowded.
