spinster noun - derogatory an unmarried woman, typically an older woman beyond the usual age for marriage. synonyms: unmarried woman
After spending almost a decade with the same person it was kind of a relief to be single. No more answering to someone else or having to ‘ask permission’ to do something. Sure, there are some down sides to being single, but nothing that can’t be overcome.
One of the best things about being single? Dating!
In today’s computer age it seems only fitting that more than a third of marriages start online. According to the Singles in America study, 27% of married people met their partner online! It makes you wonder what people did before the internet, doesn’t it?
Last week Real House Wife of New York, Carole Radziwill, joined Match.com’s Chief Scientific Advisor, Dr. Helen Fisher, for the #SinglesinAmerica Forum at The Rickey at Dream Midtown. The forum revealed the results of Match’s 6th annual Singles In America study.
I called over some friends to watch the forum over cocktails and sushi. Not only was the forum fun to attend, but it was super informative. We learned a lot of interesting facts and got some tips on how to date successfully. The forum covered the different aspects of dating including politics, how to get a second date, and what to do versus what not to do.
One of the most interesting facts for me was that going out for coffee isn’t as likely to get you a second date as going out for cocktails. There was also some pointers on when the best time of the day to have sex is! I don’t want to give too much away because you’ll want to watch it for yourself! If you’re ready to jump into online dating then now is a great time to start.
