Love’s Finding a Way Lately, but Dating Is Different – Reform Austin
It seems the COVID-19 pandemic is changing more than the way we live. It is also impacting how and who we choose to love.
Dallas-based Match.com has released its 10th annual Singles in America Survey, and it shows how the lives of singles have changed this year.
“Today’s singles want to know who you are, where you’re headed financially, and what you expect from a possible partnership. And with the rise of video dating — a new stage in the courtship process — singles are saving time, money, and kissing fewer frogs,” said Dr. Helen Fisher, biological anthropologist and chief scientific adviser to Match.
