Holiday Dating – 3 Ways to Add Mistletoe to your Dating Life

By: Bela Gandhi

Last week during a lunchtime coaching session, one of my lovely clients asked me if people “go on a dating hiatus, and shut down and hibernate between December and Valentine’s Day.” The answer is a resounding “no!” Contrary to popular belief, dating during the holidays can be fun and incredibly fruitful.  Match’s membership goes up almost 30% around the holidays – which means that nearly 1 in 3 daters is coming online fresh, excited, and ready to meet you!
