It’s OK to be Single on Valentine’s Day

Saturday, February 13th, 2016

CupidValentine’s Day is a strange event which divides people into five main groups: the lovey dovey couples who go all out with romantic gestures, the “I don’t buy into all this rubbish” couples, who claim to be romantic all year round, singletons who feel twangs of jealousy looking at the lovey dovey types, single people who view the day and single people who enjoy a good anti-Valentine’s Day celebration.

What you may not realise is that Valentine’s Day is the second busiest time of the year for online dating websites, second only to the New Year (which feels like months ago).

When it’s busy, there are more people online at once, which means that you are more likely to get a fast reply to your message and are more likely to get into conversation with someone.

It’s also a popular time for people to join dating websites, so there will be lots of new faces on the website and hopefully someone new will catch your eye.

Just make sure to get in contact with lots of people, as there’s no point sitting about waiting for people to get in touch with you!

Being single on Valentine’s Day saves you money on overpriced chocolates, flowers, jewellery and all the other items that send thousands of people to their local petrol station in a fit of panic on February 13th. However, we’d be delighted to receive photos of you dashing to the petrol station next year for your Muddy Match :-).
