We have a growing band of users armed with their smartphones and even phablets (a cross between smartphone and tablets) that spend most of their time browsing the internet. Naturally the time spent on these devices take users away from what used to be the standard way of browsing ie. your humble desktop computer or laptop. This has been confirmed with the dent in the sales of desktops and laptops and companies like Dell are finding it increasingly difficult to stay profitable in the old market. The real winners are smartphone and tablet manufacturers such as Samsung. So how does this impact the way users browse and especially the long standing industry of the online dating world?
Online dating websites have been with us since the world wide web practically began. However, users behavior has been changing over the years and several free dating websites such as Plentyoffish.com, Jumpdates.com and OkCupid.com have reported significant growth in the number of users accessing their website through smartphones. There is a good percentage of users who will use the mobile applications provided by these sites and some will just browse to the internet website. This begs the question, are mobile apps the way to go?
There are highly paid economists and visionaries that are analyzing the phenomenal growth of mobile devices. It has already been predicted that there will be 1 billion shipment of smartphone devices by 2015 and hence the fervor for mobile applications. However, in business the underlying factor is naturally money and one needs to think carefully about that. The smartphone market is still in it’s infancy to generate cash unless you have a really addictive application or game that you just cannot put down. In the world of dating, the proliferation of free dating websites makes for mobile app developers in this market a challenge. The majority of the dating apps developed are always coupled with the originating dating website. In essence, the dating website will not go away anytime soon, but it continue to growth leveraging the new standards in html and browsers. Here are a few reasons for this continued growth…

There are plenty of matchmaking sites that claims to have a scientific method of doing matchmaking for online singles looking for their soul mate. Dr. Benjamin Karney – psychology professor from the University of California and other fellow professors did not find any thing scientific in these matchmaking algorithms.
The team of professors found that they failed to prove that the algorithm they used is scientific and did not give enough evidence to support their claim. This is where the freedom to search for your matches on free dating websites has advantage as it puts the power directly in the hands of online singles.
Free dating websites such as Jumpdates does not force online singles saying that these are the only perfect matches for you. There is no harm in sending what the algorithm considers as matches but, these matching algorithms need to be back up by enough good reasons and not by bold claims. The team of researchers from California University raised serious doubts on some of the claims made by major sites like eHarmony and others. We on the other hand at Jumpdates - free dating websites have quick pieces of advice for our fellow singles to start sending a short description as to why someone is your best match along with your matched profile which would be a great help for other online singles and shed new light to our critics.

Researchers have found that online singles looking for matches on free dating websites always look for a bigger pool of matches or profiles even when they are searching local singles for weekend dates. The obvious reason behind this is a bigger pool of profiles provide single to select the best profile which suits them at that time.
But, the question is how many profiles are enough to turn them on and how many turn off their interest in free dating websites. Researchers found that when online singles search for their matches and get only four or less profiles generated by their search criteria they tend to be less active on that site.
On the other hand if their search returns more than 20 online profiles then it seems to be good and they becomes more active on that site. This could be because more profiles create more impact on single psyche and they want to connect with more singles to at least few responses as possible.
We at Jumpdates also believe that more profiles will get your matches more likely to convert to actual real dates.

Singles always face the dilemma at the start of any relationship that it is true love or just an attraction which is common when you see beauty. Free dating websites gives you an opportunity to create long distance relationships and it becomes harder to know the person when you only talk over the phone or do online chat to stay connected.
Here are few tips to check that the relationship you are is in fact love or something else:
1. At the initial stage when free dating website is the only channel of communication you need to go through the messages to find that are they online for you or a messaging template which is common when singles contact at first. Look for something similar to what you have in your profile like interests or in the about me section.
2. If you have moved to the next level of communication and use mobile phones or text messages to stay connected, few things would help you find the depth of your relationship like how often you talk or share messages. This does not mean that you spend hours on the phone daily or send messages every hour. Even a single phone call a week is okay. Also try to find out that the one you find on free dating websites also call you rather than only you making the effort to show your interest in keeping the relationship going strong.
Free dating websites and technology has made communication affordable and instant in forming long distance relationship. Share your view on long distance relationships in our comments section.
