INTRO COPY Do dating sites see more traffic on Valentines day? Well, not really. [line graph showing volume from Wednesday 2/10 to Monday 2/15, emphasizing spike on Friday and flatness of sat and sun. Clearly emphasize valentines day.] But they do see a big spike a few days before Valentines day. Though on the big day (and the day before) they drop down to just above normal. Why? People dont set up first dates for Valentines day. Its just way too much pressure. The real increase in traffic comes a few days after Valentines day. Thats when singles get sick enough of seeing their friends romantic photos, and get the dating bug. [line graph of volume from Saturday 2/13 to Tuesday 2/22, emphasizing spike and then return to normal, and clearly showing Valentines day] After a week of heightened volume, the February daters forget about their love lives again, and online dating traffic drops right back to normal.
COPY What do the numbers look like the rest of the year? The numbers stay steady for most of the year. But, like gym memberships, online dating also sees spikes in January as people make New Years Resolutions. [no graph here. Perhaps just some sort of visual representation that shows people feeling determined and confident, and then, later, feeling lazy/depressed.] On a week-to-week basis, traffic peaks on Sunday and falls off significantly on Wednesday. Who uses online dating? 24% of dating site visitors are married. There are 3% more African American people on dating sites than White People. People age 60 – 64 see an 8 percent spike in online dating over people 55-59. College graduates do more online dating than people without degrees.
