A lot of people are hoping 2013 is the year they find love — or at least a lot of dates.
Grant Langston, vice president of customer experience at eHarmony, tells Mashable an increase in sign-ups happens every year on Christmas Day, bumps up on New Year’s Day and goes until Valentine’s Day. December through February is high-season for dating websites.
“All this increased activity makes the pool [of prospective daters] bigger,” he said.
Match.com reports that 64% of singles’ 2013 New Year’s resolutions are about finding love this year. And since 1 out of 5 relationships start online, dating websites make a good place to look for love.
