Online dating age 21
It is well known that girls have the choice of whoever they want to go out with but in real life that is limited by the size of their social circle so they would only have say 5 guys to choose from. Online however, they have the choice of thousands of guys so just like monetary inflation the 'value' of each guy goes down i.
Therefore that is why I think online dating does not work unless there is a shortage of men. This is why mail order brides work. There is a shortage of eligible men in their home country and only a few Western men willing to take on the expense and time required to go through the process that for most men who signs up to a mail order service they stand a good chance of finding someone.
Follow 14 I joined one when I was I also thought at the time that it was a bit young, but then again I wanted to give it a go and the minimum age for it is 18 anyway so I thought why not.

Follow 17 I don't think it's too young, and it wouldn't seem odd to me.
