London, Jan 30 (ANI): Going for your first date on January 31? Well, in that case, you're not alone to embark on a new romance, for a new survey has revealed that the last day of this month is the year's biggest day for first dates.
While January bears the reputation of being the peak month for break ups, new figures have shown that 31st of this month is due to be the year's biggest night for first dates.
In fact, according to estimates, a big 70,000 of these dates will culminate into a new romance by February.
PARSHIP.co.uk, Europe's largest scientifically based online dating service, conducted the survey of 5,000 singles.
And the research revealed that Britain's singles would go on 2.5 million first dates this January,
And the figure is almost three times more than in December and twice as many as any other single month of the year.
"These findings are consistent with previous surveys. We know that more people join internet dating services in January than any other time of year," The Telegraph quoted Dr Victoria Lukats, psychiatrist and PARSHIP.co.uk's dating expert, as saying.
She added: "We also know that internet dating has now become the single most common way of finding a partner.
"The explanation could be down to the post-Christmas malaise, pressure from well-meaning friends and relatives or New Year's resolutions." (ANI)
