The week of September 18 to 24 marks National Singles Week. It was started in the 1980s by the Ohio Buckeye Singles Council to celebrate singles. Now it’s expanded to include singles and those who are unmarried (but do not identify as single.)
According to census stats, there are 95.7 million Americans and 12.3 million Canadians who are unmarried and single over the age of 15. Match.com claims to have 15 million members worldwide with 60,000 new members joining daily.
Right now Match.com is offering a free 3-day trial. If you really want to try out a site, free trials are great as they let you use most if not all of the features. Contact some potential dates. Who knows, maybe you’ll find a match.
P.S. If you decide not to join the site, just make sure you cancel before the trial ends (to avoid charges to your credit card). In other words, read the fine print.
