Here we are, in 21st-century, landing back on the moon and still stuck on the question: "Should men always pay the bill on dates?"

According to Google, it is the practice of searching for a romantic or sexual partner on the internet, typically via a dedicated website. In other words, it is the usage of the internet to find similar personalities on a level where it is possible to find love. It has been highly popular in the last 10 years and due to our fast-paced lives and the fear of pandemic, people found comfort in this modern age service.
