Online dating can be good for so many things: You can learn how to be an artful texter, how to dig up information about a person you've never met, and how to talk to strangers and make it seem like a totally normal thing.
And now, new research from Tinder suggests that your dating game IRL can actually improve if you get on dating apps.
This week, the matchmaking giant released the results of a recent survey it commissioned called "Modern Dating Myths." The survey compared the app's users to traditional, offline daters.
According to a report by The New York Times, the survey was administered to 7,072 Tinder users between the ages of 18 and 36, while a second survey was was administered to 2,502 offline daters between the ages of 18 and 35 by Morar Consulting Tinder is out to squash the myth that online dating has led to a decline in exclusive, monogamous relationships.
There's no wrong or right way to date, of course, but certain skills may make finding a partner easier — if that's your goal.
