The internet, cell phones and social media have become key actors in the lives of many American couples.
Technology is a source of support and communication as well as tension, and couples say it has both good and bad impacts on their relationships.
Online dating is also relatively popular among the college-educated, as well as among urban and suburban residents.
And 38% of Americans who are single and actively looking for a partner have used online dating at one point or another.
I had a date for the next Saturday night for seven years.
But with 87 million singles in the United States and nearly 40 million dating online, it seemed a good way to meet someone.
"No one is going to respond to someone who says they are a couch potato and likes to stay home."I was lucky. (I have friends who have been on dating sites for years.)

Because if after 15 minutes you don't like the person you are stuck; and for men that means the bill as well.
One in ten Americans have used an online dating site or mobile dating app; 66% of them have gone on a date with someone they met through a dating site or app, and 23% have met a spouse or long term partner through these sites.
