Government Shutdown 2013: Online dating increases
Furloughed workers may be back to work, but it looks like their time off wasn't a total bust - especially when it comes to looking for love.
According to Zoosk, an online dating site, D.C. singles took full advantage of their time off. The site reports that it saw increases in the number of people looking to meet up and the number of people checking out profiles. Zoosk also saw a bump in instant messages and new D.C. singles signing up.
