Episode 1 – Online Dating Statistics

Welcome to Online Dating Tonight – a new animated talk show about online dating. Every Tuesday night a new episode will be posted along with a transcript of the production. Enjoy! Here is episode #1…

TRANSCRIPT

Cassandra:
Hi, my name is Cassandra and you are on the set of Online Dating Tonight by Online Dating Magazine. Every week from this set we will explore a different online dating issue. We may talk about online dating safety or simply offer some profile tips. And most weeks we will have a special guest who will share his or her tips or experiences with online dating.

Tonight, we’re going to talk about online dating statistics and the popularity of finding love on the Internet. For that, we have Alex, our very own online dating expert.

Alex:
Thank you. (audience applause). Thank you. Thanks. Thank you very much. I appreciate it. Thanks. Thank you.

Cassandra:
Come on over and have a seat. You obviously know how to work an audience. Now then, how popular is online dating?

Alex:
Online dating is a 1.5 billion dollar a year industry. And here is what we know about single people and online dating. By the way, ladies, I’m still single (audience laughter). Cassandra, what we know is that 1 out of every 5 single people in the United States has dated someone they met online. In other words, 1 out of every 5 relationships were started via an online dating service.

Cassandra:
Really?

Alex:
Yes, and with 96 million singles in the United States, it’s now the third most popular way to find a potential soulmate.

Cassandra:
So does that mean that bars and night clubs are number one?

Alex:
Only for me (audience laughter). Seriously, though, the number one way is through work or school. Number two is friends and family. Online dating is third. As you can see, online dating is moving up the list. Every year it becomes more popular.

Cassandra:
Many years ago, online dating had a stigma, didn’t it?

Alex:
Many years ago I had more hair (points to balding head – audience laughter). The point is that with time things change. Everyone now knows someone who met through an online dating service.

Cassandra:
Do people actually marry who meet online?

Alex:
According to Online Dating Magazine, there are more than 280,000 marriages a year from people who met online.

Cassandra:
That is a big number.

Alex:
Yes, more than the number of hairs on my head (audience laughter)

Cassandra:
And with that it is time to conclude our first episode of Online Dating Tonight. You can find more online dating statistics at onlinedatingmagazine.com. Join us next week as our topic will be online dating scammers with special guest, Jezzebell.

(concluding music plays – show is over)

Alex:
Hey, Cassandra, do you find men who are going bald attractive?

Cassandra:
Why do you ask?

Alex:
Because if you do then I’m going bald. If you don’t then I’m thinking of trying out this new hair replacement spray.

Cassandra:
(frustrated) Oh, where do they find these guys?
