Has online dating revolutionized the dating process?

Depends on who you ask. The longing for human contact is a natural feeling that everyone has. Shepherds used to carve their feelings into tree bark.

Messages have even been sent into space. Before these messages went mainstream, it was a way same-sex couples to discreetly hook-up according to the Huffington Post:

1700s: Personal Ads for Homosexual Safety
Personal ads were one of the only ways for the gay and lesbian communities to meet discreetly and safely at this time. Less-Than-Fun fact: homosexuality was outlawed and punishable by death in the UK by wife-murderer Henry VIII and continued to be illegal until 1967. During this time, gathering sites for gay men known as Molly Houses were subject to regular raids by law enforcement. (Meanwhile in the future U.S.A., anyone accused of being a “sodomite” doing “buggery” was also legally sentenced to death as of 1776.) Coded words, female names and other signals in personals were channels to privately expressing vulnerability and find companionship that society forbade.

The first personal ad appeared in 1695. Just proves humans have been 'randy' and scoundrels for a good long time.

1695: The First Personal Ads
According to history professor H.G. Cocks (seriously —The Best Name Ever for an academic) personal ads began as a way to help British bachelors find eligible wives. One of the earliest personals ever placed was by a 30-year-old man, with “a very good estate’, announcing he was in search of ‘some good young gentlewoman that has a fortune of £3,000 or thereabouts.” (£3,000 is equivalent to roughly £300,000 today. #ShamelesslySeekingSugarMomma...)

As I read some accounts from a bygone era, of how humans always seem to find a way to meet those of the opposite sex. My mind began to wander & wonder if there were dating sites for stoners? The myth or hyperbole that marijuana enhances sexual pleasure is shared by every stoner.

Every stoner knows that marijuana enhances sex. I’ve never had orgasms as intense as those following getting high with a hot 420 loving romantic partner. The key is not to rush things. Just take it easy and enjoy your mind blowing experience.

Marijuana has a natural aphrodisiac property. It relaxes you and puts you in the mood, and helps you connect with your inner sexual urges. Just think about your best orgasm ever. I’m sure you were super turned on to begin with. That’s how it can be when you smoke weed to put you and your sex partner in the mood.

My experience is that smoking pot makes me last longer so I’m able to satisfy my sex partner more fully. I’m more in tune with my own feelings and sensations, as well as those of my partner. Why stop with one orgasm? Relax and enjoy multiple orgasms thanks to some good weed. One bit of advice that is worth heeding — don’t drink excessively before sex as that can have a negative effect on your sex and ruin the whole thing. I don’t have anything against alcohol but it is actually a sexual downer for most people and then you have the risk of hangover in the morning.

After the sex is over, pack another bowl and enjoy some more weed with your partner. Stop and enjoy the satisfied feeling, and appreciate each other. You’ll either retire for a peaceful sleep together or you might just end up having hot sex again!

If you're looking for blunts, babes and buds, you may find that once in a lifetime hook-up on a stoner dating website. You must keep in mind, stoner dating sites are not like your typical dating sites.

Throughout history, from the shepherds tree carvings, to the personal and the phenomenon of online dating, people will find a way to get what they want, desire and need.

Online dating is the new norm for introductions, replacing the role of traditional personals and in many cases, merging with the functions of social media. If we are going to improve the way people meet one another, we’re going to have to do so by questioning the existing paradigms of online dating and figuring out how to do it better.

One thing is certain: the tenacity with which human beings will seek each other out with any tool available is inspiring. Ultimately, we use the technology of online dating because we crave connection and that desire alone timeless and connects us.
