Newsflash to all you Chicago daters: You're in luck! This is actually a pretty good place to be for online dating, according to some news. Apparently, the Windy City is ranked fourth in using online dating at Match.com, preceded by Miami, New York and Los Angeles.
The press release, which hit just a few days ago, was distributed to coincide with the end of summer, spotlighting the fact that Miami singles using Match.com contacted each other the most between June and August -- just in time for summer lovin'.

Other cities that round out the list: Washington,
DC; Dallas, TX; San
Diego, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Boston, MA and
With this data floating out there, there is definitely an argument in support of online dating. Granted, I'm still from the school of mixing it up a bit. But, knowing that the odds are pretty good here are encouraging.
So, maybe it's worth it to give online dating another whirl? Could be!
