I bet you never thought you'd see that word for quite a while, huh? No, the economy is not 'booming' but online dating is on an incline during the recession. The Economist reported that "on-line dating sites such as eHarmony.com and OKCupid.com have seen business look up." Why? In short, the Economist says that perhaps you want to commiserate with each other, or comfort each other. Or maybe you're dating more because you have an excess of free time since you were laid-off, forced to take a pay cut, or handed furlough days. You desire to couple up and save money on living expenses.
