Findings, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, put the percentage of married couples that now meet online at almost 35% -- which gives what may be the first broad look at the overall percentage of new marriages that result from meeting online.

About 45% of couples met on dating sites; the rest met on online social networks, chat rooms, instant messaging or other online forums.

When I created my first Internet dating screen name years ago, I selected "Pianobaby," because I had a baby grand piano and enjoyed playing.

Using this screen name caught eyes of men who liked music.

Lead author John Cacioppo, a psychologist and director of the Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience at the University of Chicago, says dating sites may "attract people who are serious about getting married."While Cacioppo is a noted researcher and the study is in a prestigious scientific journal, it is not without controversy.

It was commissioned by the dating website e Harmony, according to the study's conflict of interest statement.It may seem odd, but it is sensitive and shows at least you know what you're doing and will not be an easy target.At this point you really feel irritated and irritation you think everything came to an end.More often-than-not, they'd ask why I chose the name, if I went to music school and what my favorite song was to play on the piano.By creating this fun and flirty screen name, it made it easy for someone to start a conversation.In addition, former e Harmony researcher Gian Gonzaga is one of the five co-authors."It's a very impressive study," says social psychologist Eli Finkel of Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill.
