“We’re seeing proposers put more time, thought and effort into creating the perfect proposal, as well as an engagement ring they know their partner will love,” The Knot’s editor-in-chief Kristen Maxwell Cooper said in the release.
The video shows the officer driving at high speed, weaving between cars stopped at a stoplight, asking for assistance from a police helicopter and frantically repeating “shots fired, shots fired” to a dispatcher while pursuing a black SUV.
According to The Knot’s press release, 19 percent of brides said they met their spouse through an online dating site or social media this year; up from 14 percent in 2016.
Online pairings finished above meeting through friends (17 percent), at college (15 percent), or at work (12 percent).
So I decided to spend all day this past Sunday, Jan. When Dating Day finally rolled around, I didn't do anything particularly unique or inventive to maximize my chances.
I used the same bio and photo that I've used for most of 2017, because frankly, if I was going to fall on my face during prime hook-up hours, I'd prefer to fail on my own terms.
Thunderstorms that were over the Inland Empire early this morning moved into Los Angeles County just before lunchtime, bringing rain, thunder and lightning from Glendale to Beverly Hills to the San Fernando Valley.
Overall, while I did manage to get a few matches, I don't think Dating Day was significantly more successful than any of my other dating app binges.
What better marketing tactic than convincing the world that there's a magic night where all of your swipes come true and nobody gets embarrassed?
That said, as someone who's been single for about three years now, I had to give it a shot.
That trend more than doubled from the 42 percent using those apps in 2014.
While the survey finds that more and more people are switching to the less personal way of meeting people, the amount of time and money they’re investing in their engagements is going up.
Thank you, Dating Day, you've given me at least one success.
