First date recession index

Good morning economists. Did you notice lately that your single friends are going on dates more often? This is not because your friend has suddenly become a hit with the ladies/men (depending on gender) but because of the economic recession.

Match.com, a dating website reports that during economic downturns, people tend to date more as a way of compensating their economic misfortunes with a more successful social life. If I was to make a prediction, I foresee many new couples coming together during the upcoming Christmas period. Problem is, with wages and Christmas bonuses being cut, where will people go for a first date?

Have a nice day!

  1. I actually thought people frequent a dating site more when the economy is bad to have someone to share the bills with. Maybe I think that way because I haven't had much success in the dating field.
