With Valentines day right around the corner I'm sure you're already feeling the first date butterflies. Here are some interesting stats from singlesinamerica.com to help you nail the first date and get on to the second one!

1.) 33% of singles meet online. That's a higher percentage than meeting through a friend, which came in at only 26%. Which is good news since you're 78% more likely to have a second date if you met online!

2.) If it's your first date with your new boo, try and keep the date at somewhere around two-and-a-half hours. Any longer than that and your chances for scoring a second date go down. So keep them guessing!
