web.stanford.edu/~mrosenfe/Rosenfeld_et_al_Disintermediating_Friends.pdf

In 1940, ~80% of couples met through family, friends or elementary/high school.

Today, ~67% meet online or at bars.

Internet dating has displaced friends and family from their former roles as key intermediaries in the formation of new unions.
