    I looked it up, Match Group isn't affiliated with Match.com. I thought for sure it was going to be some sort of illicit monopoly of dating sites, but it's not. Shame.

      IAC owns Match, OKCupid, Tinder and is buying PoF. It is becoming a monopoly. Match Group is under IAC.

    When has a consolidation of similar companies ever benefited the end user? I can't seem to recall a single instance.

    For example, when oDesk merged with Elance, nothing good came from it. Except confusion, and higher rates for the workers.

      You're probably right. However, imagine if (and it's a big if) the new technology used the best parts of all the sites and now you have 5 different sites' users all combined. Isn't it better from a dating perspective to have everyone available to you for the best match possible? Sorry I'm not being very convincing here but I think you get my point.

    Who knew hooking people up would be so profitable? I guess the date doctor is in.
