Online Dating in the EU, Recession-Proof

ONLINE DATING IN THE EU, RECESSION-PROOF

The global recession has not made one dent in the EU’s passion for online dating services. On the contrary, EU dating services have recently seen major increases in subscriptions.

Match.com International UK had a before taxes profit of £3.65 million this past year, with the year before showing a loss of £2.2 million. In the first quarter this year, Match International reported a 12 percent increase in paying members.

While the number in the US is expected to drop, for some unknown reason Europeans are more on the make.

WhiteLabelDating.com, a UK based online dating service saw its membership grow over the last year by 250 percent to over 1 million members. Nielsen Online also reported a 15% increase in unique visitors this year over last, so there is no slowing down for Parisians or hot-blooded Spaniards in their love of online dating.

    It seems that Europeans are making a mark on online dating compared to U.S. inspite of economic recession.

    Maybe when the economy is tumbling people reach out more for support, including at online dating sites. It will be interesting to see what happens if the economy continues to improve.

    Our country was also hit hard by the Economic Recession. At least we are seeing some signs of economic recovery now. I hope that we could recover soon from this recession.

    Our country had been so much affected by this Economic Recession. there are lots of job cuts and company shutdowns. We are seeing some signs of economic recovery right now and we hope that it would continue.
