When you are doing online dating the winter time might feel like the absolute doldrums. You wonder where have all the babes gone and why are they all hiding? Well, apparently they all come out in the spring and summer time. When that happens certainly depends a lot on where you live. If you live in the southern part of the US then it could come at any time, and in the northern parts it usually happens around June. Regardless of the temperatures around where you live, every part of the US encounters more sun in the summer and less in the winter, making the summers happier for everyone. This is perhaps one thing that explains the findings from a study done by the popular online dating site OkCupid which lists June as the biggest month for finding hook ups, according to data they have collected on their members.
It all starts in April and even May, when interest in casual sex slowly rises as people do all their spring cleaning and get the cobwebs out of their corners and creases. The increase in sunshine makes people feel super frisky and that is perhaps why by June there is usually around a 17% increase in people looking to hook up! Compared to the rest of the year, June sees 33% more users looking for a quick shag. Some data scientists have some ideas why this might be. First of all, the summer is a time for traveling. College students go on epic backpacking trips across all different countries, people go on vacation and others take on summer projects and internships that take them out of their hometowns and into places where they are only going to be for a few months. Why bother to put down roots if you are not going to be staying for very long? Others surmise that it might have to do with the fact that you always see a whole lot more skin when it is warmer out, which can get those sexual engines revving up for casual sex.
If you’re looking for a relationship, the winter months are better for that, with a 2% increase in the amount of people who say they are looking for a serious sweetie. It’s probably because in many areas of the US where OKCupid is popular, it gets pretty cold and dismal during the winters and everyone wants to cuddle up to someone cute!
So there you have it. I am all for staying in and watching porn all summer but for those of you who actually want to get out there and date someone or make a quick connection, now might be the best time for you to do so!
