Shyness can keep you from sampling some of life’s most delicious offerings.Worrying about outside perceptions and interactions often hinders your social interactions and your options when it comes to the love department.
CEO Mandy Ginsberg is one of the only female CEO's of a publicly-traded tech company.
She told "CBS This Morning" the online dating industry has exploded in a little over a decade."When I joined 12 years ago, 3 percent of marriages were from online dating products," Ginsberg said. So the world has really changed."Ginsberg said Match Group has put millions of dollars into figuring out the "science of matching," developing apps that adapt to users' actions."You might say I'm looking for someone who's 6 feet tall and blond, but then once you're actually on the app you start reaching out, connecting and going on dates with people who are short and brunette," Ginsberg said.

"When you're 23 years old and you're on Tinder and getting to know and meeting people, that's very different than if you're 45 and you're a single mom looking for a second time around, which you might be using Match."But she admits she hopes users aren't searching too long."The irony is, we want people off our products because when they're off our products, they're successful," Ginsberg said.
"And tracking those relationships over time is something we've done and we have seen success rates."Ginsberg noted that if a user is reported as asking for money, they will be banned in order to stop scams.
East Indian and American dating cultures are both very diverse and can vary by religion, geographic location and regional backgrounds.
Typically, East Indian cultures have much stronger family and matrimonial values when dating is involved than American cultures do. Telling your crush that you really like her can be quite daunting.
"So what we do is we start to adapt, what you say you want and what you actually really want are two different things.
So our algorithm in this case starts to adapt much more on your behavior."Ginsberg said no matter how old you are or what situation you're in, there's an app for you."Our apps are very different," Ginsberg said.
Men find that women usually outnumber them in a library, which makes it an interesting place to find a date.
