One in four men turn to their smartphone to find someone to love, reveals a recently released research into the dating habits of Australians.
The research by Telstra, involving 1250 Australians, revealed that 3 out of 5 people who say that they have used a dating app on their phone are now in a relationship, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Dating coach Samantha Jayne, CEO of Blue Label Life matchmaking, said that today people are on Facebook, on Twitter so it just makes sense for them to go on a dating app.
She said that it's all about quick results, and making it happen.
She said that people want results today, and that they're looking for answers and that's what apps do, they find solutions to your questions in life.
The research found one in three men had asked out someone through social media, with that figure reaching more than 50 per cent when it came to generation Y's dating habits.
