Online dating typically has more users in the winter months, but from the 28th December onwards, sites see a spike in traffic.
Eden Blackman, owner of the UK's first verified dating site Would Like to Meet. joined Headline London to discuss what singletons should and shouldn't be doing as the New Year approaches.
Mr Blackman explains that many people wait until after Christmas to break up with their partner but as the year turns colder and darker, many want to find someone new.
He also explains why there’s no need to choose between dating online and dating traditionally, being a big fan of both. He also says that people tend to make a melodrama of online dating - but there's no need to be anxious as everyone now does it. 10 million adults in the UK use online dating services.
