Stigma attached to online dating

You can do almost anything online these days: Check a bank balance, buy shoes, choose a mattress, order a cab.

And of course, sometimes it's a mixed marriage, or one between a muggle and a mage, complete with attendant prejudice.

In fact, people over 50 are one of the fastest growing segments.

“It’s a product of the growing normalcy of using social media apps,” says Moira Weigel, author of “Labor of Love: The Invention of Online Dating” (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2016).

A whopping 44 percent of respondents who tried online dating said the experience led to a serious long-term relationship or marriage.
