A little summary of everyone who got lucky in love on Match. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
The stars were definitely aligned the night Steve and I started talking on Match.com, and even though we had probably driven or even walked past one another many times beforehand, we never would have met if it wasn’t for this wonderful site.
I was only on the site for a 3-day trial to see what it was all about (were there even people my age on here?!) and Steve luckily did a search and found me on the second night of my 3-day trial. We were a 100% match (which was impressive since we both extensively filled out our profiles) but what got my attention was that he took the time to read my profile where I may or may not have explained that I was a bit of a science nerd . Within just a couple of exchanges we were writing paragraphs to one another, having to number our points so we could keep track! Soon we exchanged numbers, talked on the phone all night like teenagers, and decided to have our first date on New Year’s Day.
In just 12 days Steve and I met on match, went on our first and then second date and told each other that we loved one another. We were that couple that “just knew” that we found IT… the real thing. Although our feelings were serious, he allowed me the freedom to not have to be so serious or so perfect, even from the beginning. Read more…
Today more than ever, it seems as though we’re seeing blurred lines everywhere when it comes to dating and relationships. What constitutes a date these days? Is a Skype chat the same as meeting in person? Are you dating or in a relationship? With celebs like Angelina and Brad Pitt waiting a decade (while raising 6 kids) to tie the knot, many question the role of marriage in today’s society. Is it still the constant? According to our recent Singles in America study, singles say, YES:
- Lifelong partner: 89% of singles believe you can stay married to the same person forever
- Cut the red tape: 56% of singles believe that laws should make it EASIER to get married
- Forever means forever: 52% of singles DON’T agree that ‘till death do us part’ is a thing of the past
- No expiration date: 64% of singles DON’T agree that marriage licenses should have an expiration date with the option to renew
It’s probably no surprise that 31% of singles met their last first date through an online dating site. What you probably don’t know is that the lifestyles and dating habits of online daters vary dramatically from those of offline daters. Online daters go on more dates, are more likely to be actively seeking a committed relationship, are more interested in marriage, are more open to a long-distance relationship, and have more sex.
