The evolution of online dating has led us to swipe-based dating apps, but are they too damaging to our mental health? The last decade has seen a rapid rise in online dating, and with it, a whole new way of having fun and finding the one. Tracking the " evolution of online dating ," we learn that it actually started back in with the launch of Match. Since then, swipe-based dating apps have taken over the online dating scene.
