Mark Brooks, a dating analyst and consultant to the internet dating industry, reckons it was the endless stream of awkward questions from family members that prompted many to search for love online this time of year.
“The effect becomes more pronounced over the Xmas vacations and party season,” he said. “Questions such as ‘have you been dating anyone recently’ and ‘do you think you’ll ever marry’ become ‘On your own, are you?’.”
Kate Taylor, resident relationship expert at match.com, said the post-Christmas to pre-New Year boom is partly because it’s traditionally a reflective time of year, as people look back at their achievements over the past twelve months, and think about their New Year’s resolutions.
“We know that top of many people’s list this year will be finding a partner, and online dating offers the perfect chance to widen the number of potential partners available to you – and to find a potential date from the comfort of your own living room,” she said.
