If your index finger hurts from swiping through online dating profile photos on your phone, you’re not alone. According to a recent study, half of all singles report using mobile online dating websites or applications. The study, jointly commissioned by ChristianMingle.com and JDate.com, reveals key findings about how mobile technology is redefining the rules for singles. For example:
*Nearly 2/3 of singles say mobile devices have completely changed the way they communicate with dates.
*82% of singles use text messaging as their default mode of communication.
*But, almost 70% of singles prefer talking vs. text when it comes to scheduling dates.
Greg Liberman, Chairman and CEO of Spark Networks, owner and operator of ChristianMingle.com and JDate.com, shares how daters dependent on their smartphones can put their best PHONE forward to meet that special someone.
