You've heard the statistics. More and more people - 40 million to be exact - are logging on for love. And folks in northwest Arkansas are no exception.
"We still have an argument about this today but he emailed me."
"I think there was a button that you could wink at those you thoght were interesting and I'm pretty certain I sent her a wink."
Meet Mike and Deanna Wright. just two of the 29 million paired on Match Dot Com.
"I'm very outdoorsy. I love to fish, camp, I love to boat, love Beaver Lake and that's exactly what she put on her profile."
The couple met online in October, 2009.
"We emailed and then I gave him my phone number and we texted a lot and I remember the first time he called me I was a little worried about answering the phone what's his voice going to sound like I remember i was like pacing around the house it was like I was talking to my best friend already because we had gotten to know each other so well already through text messaging and emails "
Two years later, Mike got down on one knee.
He's truly the perfect man for me. It just wouldn't have happened without online dating.
"There's no way I would have met Mike if it was just going to a bar or going to the mall or going to the grocery story."
Recently divorced with kids and a busy schedule, Match Dot Com worked for Mike, too.
"With technology this day and age, with everybody's busy work schedule, it's a bonus. It's a win win for everybody."
"Being upfront and being open, I found to be very easy to do. And just able to respond when you had time and there wasn't any pressure to me."
But sometimes cupid's online arrow misses.
"It's not like Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail."
Bill Horton tried his hand at internet dating.
"I'd been single for a few years. Wasn't meeing anyone through friends or locally so I thought why not give it a try it's just like any other dating."
But wasn't as lucky in love.
"I've had some good experiences on it but by and large it wasn't a great experience.
I gave it a whirl and met someone dated for almost a year actually. It was somewhat long distant. It just didn't work out we're still friends so I've made some great friends but no love interest."
Bill says from now on, he'll choose an instant, in-person spark over the search for a spouse on a site.
"For me I can tell in five or ten minuted whether it's someone I'm going to click with when you're sending emails back and forth you don't really know."
But for those still looking for love in the Natural State, it could still work.
"I think I would tell someone who is looking to meet someone in northwest Arkansas keep your options open you never know online dating may work for you."
And the Wrights are proof of that.
"I think this is by far the best way you can find somebody. There's no reason in this day and age for people to be alone if you want to be with somebody. I would absolutely say you could find love online. Without a doubt I did and it's a beautiful thing."
