Alright, we鈥檙e just going to put it out there. If there are college classes on Harry Potter, selfies and Beyonc茅, there should definitely be a class on how to become a pro at online dating. The dating process is weird enough, but add technology to it and it quickly becomes even more complicated.

Usually, the process is totally trial and error. Maybe this primary profile pic got you tons of messages, but that snippet in your 鈥渁bout me鈥 section scared some potential dates away. Well, my confused single friends, you鈥檙e in luck: Match.com has released this pretty infographic that offers a lot of insight into the weird world of online dating.

One super interesting finding is the surge of brunettes joining the site. Could this mean that blondes meet more partners IRL, or could it be an indication that 2015 was the year ladies went back to darker shades? Another surprising finding was that NYC is the city where the most singletons are looking to have kids. We鈥檙e trying as hard as we can not to cringe over the fact that the word 鈥渟wag鈥 was mentioned 3,800 times in people鈥檚 profiles, but the dramatic increase of LGBT members is making us feel a little bit better. It鈥檚 a weird world out there, guys. May the force be with you.
