Just as it is for couples everywhere, Valentines Day has always been a significant day for us in the online dating industry, but what about all of the singles out there?… Maybe not always such a positive experience. That’s why this year we decided to come up with something special that could help shift the focus away from this specific day, and back onto the single person and the dating experience.
Called “40 Days to Love”, this project will feature PlentyOfFish taking on a more active role in helping single people everywhere find someone special before Valentines Day this year, beginning right from the starting gates of 2014!
From the first week in January 2014, We’ll be releasing our best online dating advice, providing insider opinions on profiles and sharing our favorite tips that will help you stand out from the crowd, alongside much more. On a weekly basis we’ll also be publishing original content to the blog as a great resource to help maximize the experience for those participating.
So maybe you’ve never online dated before and you’re willing to give it a try this year, or maybe you’re just revamping your PlentyOfFish profile.
