    It seems that the rise of the dating apps is largely driven by a huge "benefit' they bring their users ... as in "Free!"

    Why would anyone continue to pay exorbitantly high prices for eHarmony.com ... LDSSingles.com ... LDSMingle.com ... LDSPlanet.com ... etc ... when they can use Tinder for free?

    I believe that Tinder has forever changed the landscape when it comes to online dating. If a site continues to charge its users in order to send and receive messages ... etc ... it will soon become irrelevant ... and it will cease to exist! (I like to call it the "Tinder Effect.")

    In the LDS dating market ... I believe that only two dating sites that will continue to see growth going forward are Tinder and LDSMatchUp.com (basically Tinder for Mormons). Both services are free ... and are not inhibited by the legacy problems of the other online dating sites.

    "I think a lot of people say that our generation doesn't know how to talk to people face to face, that we don't know how to communicate, which I totally disagree with," says Lewin.. "I would be much more likely to click a 'heart' on Tinder or a 'like' on Coffee Meets Bagel to say I am interested in a guy than to walk up to him and say I am interested."

    That pretty much sums up WHY people say your generation doesn't know how to communicate... You'd rather just push a button than actually talk to a person.
