In 1700, barely a decade after the invention of the modern newspaper, the first matrimonial service was created.

These services ran ads on behalf of single men and women who were desperate to find a good husband or wife.

With those sites, the idea of online “social networking” was born and online dating was a byproduct of that.

People could meet potential boyfriends or girlfriends on the Web without going to a site dedicated to the cause.

Though there were other dating sites at the time, most focused on international dating and had more in common with “mail order bride” services than the dating sites we know today. By 1996 there were 16 dating Web sites listed in Yahoo!

, which was a directory at the time, and other powerhouses such as and Oneand had already started up.
