From websites to smartphone-friendly applications, finding ‘love’ is now at your fingertips provided you have wifi connection.

Asia Diggs Meador, 33, had never considered marrying outside her race.
"I knew we were going to have struggles as an interracial couple. He was willing to give up those relatives."Eventually some relatives came around and even danced at the wedding. They didn't attend the marriage ceremony, and Michael hasn't spoken to them in two years.
