Happy New Year!
The “holidays” have officially come to a close and business is booming. It’s the time of year when everyone is recommitting to last year’s goals or establishing new ones. Gym memberships skyrocket in the weeks following New Year’s Day, as remorseful revellers reel from excessive festive feasting and hope to lose some excess holiday baggage.
But it’s not just gyms that are booming, dating websites also apparently jump in memberships. According to an interesting article on Mashable with online dating statistics, “December through February is high-season for dating websites.” On January 2nd of 2012, for example, there was a 55% spike in registrations on Match.com, one of the most popular dating sites. Match.com also reports that 64% of single people count finding love among their New Years resolutions.
Are you single and looking for love or even just a fun night out? Dating websites like Match, OKCupid and e-Harmony are good bets – the same article reports that 1 in 5 relationships begin online, a number that is sure to grow as we continue to spend more time online.
As more people leave the bars and take to the internet to help set up the next date, how do you figure out who will be most compatible for you? Enter Spokeo. While we wish we could offer some dating tips or one of those soulmate matching tests you see on TV where you text your names in to find out if you’ll live happily ever after, we CAN help you learn a bit more about your potential date to make your own informed decisions. Our reverse email search feature aggregates photos, videos, Tweets, and social network profiles from dozens of sites, including dating sites like Match and e-Harmony. Basically, Spokeo can help you find out if Dreamy McCutie has another profile that shows a photo that’s not as nicely photoshopped as the one you’ve been drooling over.
As we all prepare our goals for the new year, whether you’re hitting the gym or figuring out how to pick the ten words that describe you best, turn to Spokeo to help you dig a little deeper and narrow down the matches. We hope you’ll land a hot date just in time for Valentine’s Day.
