There are a number of reasons why January is such a busy month for online dating
UK (PRWEB) December 30, 2011
Single parent dating website Datesingleparents.co.uk is anticipating a surge in visitors to their website after the New Year as many people turn to online dating following the festive period.
Several studies have reported that January is the most active time of the year for relationship break ups and online dating activity as many people look for a fresh start and new relationship in the New Year.
Date Single Parents spokesperson Penny Russell says “There are a number of reasons why January is such a busy month for online dating. The whole New Years resolutions thing focuses many people’s attention on their own relationships or lack of and there is a sense of urgency to make a fresh start and look for a new partner. Singles are often under pressure during the holidays from family and friends as questions are asked about their single status“.
“There is also the anticipated Valentines Day event which many single people dread more than any other day of the year and this often spurs them into action and a determination to seek out a new partner before that day arrives” Russell explains.
Single parents in the UK also have their own set of challenges to face when trying to meet a new partner. Parents are faced with many difficulties including arranging babysitting, and attracting the kind of partner who is not put off by dating someone with children.
