Online dating has come along way since ‘You’ve Got Mail’, the 1998 movie in which two business rivals fall in love over the Internet. This panel provided a critical perspective on the history and future of the Internet’s role in meeting new people, dating, and developing lasting relationships, such as through partnerships and marriage.

This research project is supported by a grant from, an online
