Dating 101 in 2021
WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - 2020 was a rollercoaster year, upending all of our norms, including the world of dating. Bumble, the women-first social networking company, recently found that 40% of daters say they aren’t confident they know how to date any more.
But a new year brings fresh hope, with the majority of daters (55%) reporting to have made a dating-related resolution. Over 50% of those surveyed believe 2021 is “their” year for love.
