Over the last two years, most of us have become all too familiar with the dating trend, Ghosting – when someone you’ve been dating suddenly ceases all communication without an explanation, leaving you completely in the dark and asking yourself, “what happened?”
If your new year’s resolution is to find love, then listen up!
This Sunday, January 7, 2018, is predicted to be the busiest day of the year for online dating, according to Plenty of Fish data.

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.
Ah the first date….
You arrive before him, staking your claim on a decent corner table, so you don’t have to awkwardly wait in line with your date; throwing away all your best conversation starters within the first 2 minutes of meeting him.
