Singles are more active on online dating sites during winter

A  survey done by the dating site Zoosk shows that there are more sign-ups during this period of the year, but also that singles engage more, especially those over 30 years old.

The dating site, which currently has a community of 38 million singles worldwide, analyzed the behaviour of its users and found out that those who passed the barrier of the 30s were more open to initiate and engage in a conversation.

On Zoosk, singles who are in the 35-44 age group sent 17% more messages during this time of the year.

Generally speaking, they also found out that senior daters were way more talkative than the younger ones.

Indeed, senior singles over 45 sent 15% more messages in comparison to what they usually send the rest of the year.

Online dating: Single women are more communicative online than men

There are also some minor differences in the way men and women behave while they are online interacting with other singles in winter.

Apparently around 50% of single men and women are more approachable during this season.

This new survey also suggests that single women tend to be more conversational than men when it comes to meet people and find a partner online.

While men sent 5% more messages during this period than any other time of the year, women sent 7%.

All in all, it seems that the winter season is the perfect one to start a new romantic adventure!
