Author(s):

Pratyusha Pal and Dr. Nilanjana Mitra

Abstract:

In today’s era, the surge in the usage of online dating apps have largely replaced the conventional mode of dating. Studies have highlighted the following reasons that make people attracted to such dating apps i.e. easier accessibility, huge exposure, availability of different modes of communication and convenience of getting partners according to their preferred sexual orientation. With the emergence of these apps, problems like social anxiety, depression, loneliness are also increasing rapidly. Hence, this article is a comprehensive study of the accumulated knowledge and research works that has already been done on this topic. The most relevant points extracted from the studies can be categorised into four major groups: a) what causes the excessive usage of dating apps; b) how online dating differs from conventional dating; c) whether they positively impact the love-lives of people with different sexual orientation; d) how they create problems like social anxiety, depression, stress and loneliness.
