More than half of all couples will meet online within 20 years.

A study (by eHarmony) claims that one in two relationships will start online by the year 2031.

And by 2040, seven in ten couples will be able to thank either online dating or online communication for their relationship.

Those between 55 and 64 years old are expected to have the biggest online dating boom, with an expected 30 percent rise in between 2013 and 2030.
