The beginning of the year is always a busy time for online dating, but this year it's ESPECIALLY busy.

A recent atricle in, says that according to, Tuesday was the biggest day in online dating HISTORY.  And for the rest of this week, people are going to be searching HARD for dates.

"The average guy will go through 47 different women's profiles this week . . . and the average woman will look through 38 different men's profiles.  And they'll send messages to at least 20 of them.

The best time to send a message is 9:00 P.M. . . . that's when you're most likely to catch someone's eye and get a response."

But . . . even though people are hitting the dating sites HARD this week, no one's actually GOING on dates.  People who match up on online dating sites right now are going to wait almost two weeks before they get together for the first time.

Monday, January 16th is the most popular date for people who meet online this week.

I think that if you are serious about finding love, start looking at the places you go to a lot. The reason is because these places that you like you will find someone who likes being there too. For example, if it was me I'd look at church, the grocery store, the gym, a Binghamton Broadway show, or your favorite restaurant.

Good luck finding love in 2017!
