Recession and Romance

Msnbc has a video report about an increased desire for romantic connection - due to the state of the market. And they titled it:
More hearts flutter
as markets sputter.
The underlying data is from... online dating sites. "When stocks fall, more people look for love online." 

"When your life is not in the right place, you want to turn to somebody who can make you feel better about yourself." 

And when you're working less, or not at all, you've got more time to make time!

The report doesn't seem to mention the possibility that a lot of relationships are breaking up under financial stress. That might also cause a boom at

When one relationship ends
the aftermath often sends
two people online 
to find 
new special friends.
