On one of my recent dates, the subject of procrastination came up.
Why do we put off unpleasant tasks, like returning the dreaded phone call, filing the court papers, or dealing with the administrative hassles of a name change?
These two joined together offer an unforgettable combination.
For example, keep that date waiting in the wings til he’s just about to give up, then give him exactly what he wants.
Many online daters enlist their friends in an effort to put their best digital foot forward.
Urbansocial was created by two singles looking for an online dating service where they could meet the sort of people they wanted to, like those you spot in the gym, at your local bar or on the way to work.
Women are especially likely to enlist a friend in helping them craft the perfect profile—30% of female online daters have done this, compared with 16% of men.
5% of Americans who are in a marriage or committed relationship say they met their significant other online.
Two thirds of online daters—66%—tell us that they have gone on a date with someone they met through a dating site or dating app.
That is a substantial increase from the 43% of online daters who had actually progressed to the date stage when we first asked this question in 2005.
