Emojis: we love them, we use them daily to covey our feelings AND, we even made a move about them and their hometown of Textropolis (based on the film’s outstanding 8% score on Rotten Tomatoes, not so sure it’s a must-see.) But that’s beside the point, because today is World Emoji Day and we are celebrating all our most beloved emojis!
Traditionally, proposals have consisted of a man getting permission from his girlfriend’s father before getting down on one knee. Today, though, modern couples are getting creative when popping the big question. From theatrical productions like flash mobs to low-key conversations, here’s how Millennials are approaching engagements.
Is it June already?! Whoa, that came fast. Summer has officially started and singles are rolling out beach towels, grabbing their sun hats and lathering on the SPF for their upcoming travel destination.
At Plenty of Fish, we wanted to take a look at what dating on vacation really looks like, and whether singles are more open to meeting the love of their life while sipping on Mai Tais, and reading their favorite Grisham novel on the beach.
Are you introverted or extroverted?
Whether you’re one or the other or a little bit of both, guess what? Your dating behaviors are all very similar and both the majority of extroverts (72%) and introverts (75%) have zero preference when it comes to dating either party, revealed a Plenty of Fish survey of over 2,000 U.S. single POF users.

This Sunday, January 7, 2018, is predicted to be the busiest day of the year for online dating, according to Plenty of Fish data.

With festive holiday dinners on the horizon, Plenty of Fish conducted a survey to uncover how much the holidays impact one’s dating life. Are singles looking to roll solo to Xmas dinner, hooking up with their ex or planning their perfect New Year’s kiss?
Before the first Autumn leaf falls to the ground, consumers are lined up at their nearest Starbucks, waiting to get their hands on the much anticipated PSL (aka, Pumpkin Spice Latte for those less familiar). This Fall fan favorite is often referred to, by society, as a drink for the most “basic” of people, but the latest data from Plenty of Fish reveals something very different. Pumpkin spice is anything but basic, in fact, it’s considered “trendy.”
“The weather is great today….Do you like…the weather?”
Small talk has had a bad rep for as long as I can remember. It’s often considered irrelevant, surface level conversation, used to pass the time and/or fill the air of an awkward silence. Examples of small talk include; ‘how’s it going?’, ‘where do you work?’ ‘nice day isn’t it?’ – questions that are often met with a one word answer.
The beauty of engaging in small talk, which we often miss, is the possibility of it leading to a meaningful conversation or new connection, you would have otherwise missed.
