Abstract [en]

Title: Nätdejting för olika åldrar (Netdating for different ages)Author: Henri NekmouchePurpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate what influence the medium Internethas had on building up relationships between people who have dated online, and tocompare two different age groups.Method/Material: In this study the author has conducted personal interviews with sixpeople who all have experienced Internet dating, and had their first contact with agirlfriend/boyfriend online. The questions asked were designed to help answering thepurpose of the study.Main results: This study shows that in general there is a positive view of Internet datingamong both groups. They appreciate the opportunities it provides, as they get to knowthe other persons personality first. Even so, it should be noted that they still tend to be abit ashamed to talk about Internet dating, and some don’t want to be associated with it.The communication pattern tend to be pretty much the same among both groups. Thereare differences between the two age groups in terms of the way of dating online – theuse of pictures, sites and programs differs, and the reasons for this are many. Two of thebiggest reasons can be related to the question whether the person grew up with theInternet or not; and also to the fact that older people tend to be more serious when theyuse online dating because their time is runing out.Number of pages: 44Course: Media and Communication studies CUniversity: Division of Media and Communication, Department of Information Science,Uppsala UniversityPeriod: Fall 2009Tutor: Amelie HössjerKeywords: Internet dating, communication, chat, communities, different age group
