MASHABLE - Feb 15 - Technology both helps and hinders the romantic process. AnastasiaDate conducted a survey revealing one in four men won't get off the couch to find love. The majority of men ages 35 to 55 have dated online and, of those, 65% successfully met a special someone. One quarter of men in the study say they're too nervous to speak to a woman they find attractive, but they fare much differently approaching a person online rather than a face-to-face interaction. One in five men will date "out of their league" because of the wider opportunities online dating yields. Lawrence Cervantes, chief communications officer for AnastasiaDate.com, argues the shift from traditional dating to online doesn't rid romance of its established habits, it only improves them. "It's far more convenient, takes emotional stress away from the process, and is more efficient," Cervantes says. "It doesn't eliminate the traditional dating ritual, just gives it a shot of Vitamin B."
