According to Match.com, January 2 is the busiest day of the year for new membership registrations. Last year, there was a 55% increase in new memberships on that day alone. Evidently, there's an overall spike from December 25th to February 14th (decisions to join a dating site during engagement season do not surprise me), but the biggest day comes post-New Year's resolutions. According to Match.com's Chief Scientific Advisor, Dr. Helen Fisher, "As the holidays come to an end, we naturally resolve to fill what's missing in our lives -- particularly love, the most powerful of our human needs and joys." In fact, in a recent survey Match.com conducted, 65% of singles are making a New Year's resolution related to finding love.

In the dating scene, unlike the gym, I think it's probably the more the merrier as long as there's at least one man left for me.

Did any of you join a dating site today? Did you make a New Year's resolution about dating or love? Melissa did, and so did a lot of men! Tell me yours so I can copy it!
