A 2007 survey reported 1 in 7 Americans knew a relatively stable couple who had met online. In fact, when someone in my practice is single and they don't at least try a site or two I begin to think they may be expressing some ambivalence, unaddressed sexual conflicts, fractured self-esteem, fears of change, or other intimacy issues.

I was preparing for presentation at a conference at the William Alanson White Institute titled "Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Dating, Mating and Procreating In 21st Century America."
