Did you know online dating has been around since the mid-1990s? Yes, you read that right! In fact, there are now more than 8,000 dating sites on the web, with 1,000 new sites launched every year. Gone are the days of having to go out to meet single people. Now, you can find a relationship or even casual hookup anywhere you are. Thanks to online dating sites as well as sexting apps. Generally, these sites and apps do not discriminate and permit anyone to join. But, when online dating was first created, people had doubts about it being safe and legit. Yet, they become the norm over the years. There are now sites specifically made for certain groups. These include Christian and Jewish dating services, Asian, Indian and senior dating services.

Moreover, there are also online dating sites for the gay and lesbian population. It comes as being a queer individual makes it harder to find love. Yes, there are a number of things those in the LGBTQ community face during their time on the dating scene. As a matter of fact, there is a racial-dating hierarchy with white men among the gay community. This means people are dismissed based on their ethnicity. Furthermore, HIV remains a huge taboo issue among them. This makes dating rough for HIV positive people as they get turned down or dumped after disclosing their status. Additionally, trans and non-binary individuals still receive a great deal of harassment. Good thing, there are now gay dating sites offering them a chance to meet people from the LGBTQ community.
