A lot of people will get their first look at dating this way so I think it's a good thing. However I would say that they may not be looking for the right reasons at a younger age.

Technology is a wonderful thing, cell phone dating today, who knows what tomorrow will bring. With our crazy busy life's it's a great way to meet new friends.


I believe that mobile dating will grow, and leave regular "sitting at a computer" dating way behind. Mobile is so portable, and holds a young audience, who are quite happy to spend money on the chance of friendship, networking and finding love. But on the same platform as facebook, twitter etc.
