DALLAS - With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, couples are busy buying just the right gift while singles are busy...well, engaging in single behavior.

Just in time for the holiday, match.com has released its 6th annual "Singles in America" study. The online dating service surveyed over 5,000 singles to get a better idea of what it means to be single in America, as if singles really needed to know.

The results? 33% of singles met their last first date through online dating while 26% met their last first date through a friend.

But, tradition reigns supreme when it comes to getting that coveted second date; Match found you`re 107% less likely to get one, if you skip dinner or drinks.

Having a hard time choosing a restaurant? Just make sure sushi`s on the menu; it increases your chances of a second date by 170%.

Do talk about politics, it helps your chances by 91% but leave the sports talk at the door as less than 25% of men or women care. Plus make sure you pack some Chapstick because 50% of singles think a good first date ends with a kiss.
