The Internet is just as good as church when you're hunting for a spouse, according to Wired magazine (May 2008). Seventeen percent of online daters have turned virtual romance into marriage or long-term relationships. That's 3 million people - the same number who've met in church.
The typical woman's online dating profile claims that she's 20 pounds lighter than the average American woman. And the average man's profile says he's more than an inch taller than the average man. (But a 5'8" man can score as many dates as a 6' one if he makes $146,000 more a year. At 5'2" you have to make $277,000 more each year than the six-foot man.)
