In terms of demographics, online dating is most common among Americans in their mid-20’s through mid-40’s.In short, online or Internet dating has become an accepted way to meet people including spouses, partners and significant others.The bones also displayed spiral fractures, which suggests that they were broken while fresh and not some years later.Five large hammerstones and anvils also show wear and tear that didn't occur through geological processes, the researchers said."What's truly remarkable about this site is that you can actually identify a particular hammer that was smacked on a particular anvil in a bunch of broken bones, and fragments of those hammers and anvils that can be refitted to the stones.It's very rare that you get that whole package together in one site," Fullagar said."So the evidence at this site is truly remarkable and really does demonstrate human interference."In order to replicate the types of fractures, the scientists used similar tools on elephant bones, which resulted in the same spirals.According to research from the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project, one in ten Americans have used an online dating site or mobile dating app.
The researchers are confident that under careful examination, other scientists will come to the same conclusions."If they look carefully at this paper, that's been through rigorous peer review that Nature insists for their publication, if people honestly look at the data …Compared with eight years ago, online daters in 2013 are more likely to actually go out on dates with the people they meet on these sites.Some 66% of online daters have gone on a date with someone they met through an online dating site or app, up from 43% of online daters who had done so when we first asked this question in 2005.There's still some information missing."Burke said that she'd specifically like to see a closer examination of the surface damage of the bones.
She's particularly puzzled by the lack of cut marks, but says theycould be obscured by the surface damage.
Online dating allows individuals to contact and communicate with one another over the Internet.
