Apparently single people today are a lot better at multitasking than they used to be.
According to a new study by eHarmony, the average single person now dates six people at the same time. Apparently online dating, Tinder, and social media have made it a hell of a lot easier to find tons of people to date.
Now the study used the modern definition of “dating,” which doesn’t actually mean “going on dates.” It can just mean you’re texting with someone for a while and you rarely hang out in person. So that does make it easier to juggle six people.
And, since dating six people would mean lots of breakups, more and more people are just skipping that step and ghosting, meaning they just stop texting you.
64% of single people say that they’ve recently been dating someone who just vanished and totally stopped communicating with them.
