Back when Match.com started in 1995, the idea of finding a mate on the internet was almost laughable. Today, it's considered the best way to find that one true love. In fact, consider these stats from Reuters — there are 54,250,000 single people in the U.S. Of those, a staggering 49,250,000 have tried online dating. Like, almost everyone. Match.com is the biggest matchmaking site out there, with more than 23,575,000 members. Gay or straight, young or old, Match.com's system helps people weed out the incompatible and pair the couples that are truly made for one another.
