Dating isn’t easy and love isn’t a science, but the judicious application of statistics to your dating life may make the difference between a Saturday night alone and a fun night out.Here’s a look at a few dating trends, studies and statistics that may help improve your love life, both online and offline.I’ve spent the last year or so going on a dates that went poorly for a variety of different reasons.
I also looked for statistics and studies that offered advice about compatibility, how people approach various dating situations, what expectations I should have and so on.
