Patch's Poll: Have You Ever Tried Online Dating?

Sites typically see a surge in traffic in January.

 

The time period between Christmas and Valentine's Day is the peak for online dating, perhaps as people hope to change their relationship status in a new year.

According to digitallife.today.com, "Match.com's highest activity peak in the last year, a 55 percent increase in registrations, occurred on Jan. 2, 2012, close to that of its UK-based counterpart with the same name."

The stigma of online dating is long gone, and millions use the services every year. Many dating sites are now branching out into services that bring people together in small groups to meet in person.

Have you tried online dating? Any true love stories to share? Cautionary tales?
