Interracial dating links
Speaking about why more diverse societies are beneficial, Dr Ortega told Mail Online: 'I believe, like many, that more diverse societies have greater advantages.
Online dating (or Internet dating) is a system that enables strangers to find and introduce themselves to new personal connections over the Internet, usually with the goal of developing personal, romantic, or sexual relationships.
Researchers suggest that this new way of looking for love is connecting communities in novel ways, and even leads to more interracial marriage (stock image)In their study, the researchers simulated what happened when extra links are introduced into a social network made up of men and women from different races.
In the network, everyone wants to marry a person of the opposite sex, but can only marry someone who they have a connection with.
Others utilize the freemium revenue model, offering free registration and use, with optional, paid, premium services.
Still others rely solely on paid membership subscriptions.
Most services offer digital messaging, while others provide additional services such as webcasts, online chat, telephone chat (VOIP), and message boards.
Members can constrain their interactions to the online space, or they can arrange a date to meet in person.
A great diversity of online dating services currently exists.
And while you might think that online dating takes away the personal aspect of courting, Dr Ortega explained that he doesn't believe this is the case.
He told Mail Online: 'I do not think meeting someone on Tinder is much different than meeting them in a bar.
