So how can you harness the power of technology to your advantage?

D., author of "A Scientific Guide to Successful Dating." Many services also ask you to fill out exhaustive questionnaires about your likes and dislikes.

A 20ish woman was telling me some of her dating woes–and theories. She had been doing some dating on OKCupid, and had come to the conclusion that the problem with online dating was that “there were too many people on there.” What do you mean too many people? But saying there are too many people on there is like saying you can’t buy a book because there are way too many titles being offered.

I mean, I could see if you were trying to date in the online stone age when there weren’t ENOUGH people doing it and the digital pickins were slim. Why limit this argument to OKCupid, or Match, or any dating site for that matter?
