If you’re looking for love, there’s no time like the present.

According to statistics, it’s the week between Christmas and New Year’s where singles take to online dating sites in the hopes of finding the one. But why this particular time of year?

As psychologist Dr. Wiebke Neberich explains, “During the holiday, singles get a chance to truly consider their private lives. This motivation is reinforced by Christmas, which in celebrating love and the family rekindles people’s interest in finding a solid partnership. It’s unsurprising that so many singles put their New Year’s resolution into practice by trying online dating.”

Well, of course! Who doesn’t want to try to procure someone to kiss on New Year’s Eve or get the chance to add yet another person to their already-long list of gifts to buy next Christmas?

Whatever the individual reason may be, Elite Singles, a UK online dating service, found a 35 percent rise in new memberships after Christmas, “peaking around the New Year and slowly returning to normal in January.”

While this only includes data from Europe, the same holds true for those singles living in the States. According to Today, “sees a 25 to 30 percent increase in new members registrations between December 26 and February 14,” with the ultimate peak on January 2.

It’s also estimated that with the economy on the upswing, more and more singles are looking for love as their focus on money becomes a little less necessary than it has been in the past few years.

If the increase of singles getting online and looking for love last year was 35 percent, then there’s no telling how much more it will rise this year.

Forty percent? Forty-five percent? Even a 50 percent rise means a 50 percent greater chance of you getting lucky playing the online dating game.
