The rise of online dating
The first incarnation of a dating app can be traced back to 1995 when Match.com was first launched. The site allowed individuals to upload a profile and picture and chat with others online.
eHarmony was then developed in 2000 and two years later Ashley Madison, a website dedicated to infidelity and cheating, was launched for the first time.
A plethora of other dating sites with a unique audience were set up over the next 10-15 years, including OKCupid (2004), Plenty of Fish (2006), Grindr (2009), and Happn (2013).
Launched in 2012, Tinder was the first swipe-based dating platform. After the initial launch, usage increased and by March 2014 there were one billion matches per day.
Bumble, a dating app designed to empower women, was launched in 2014 by Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe Herd.
