Looking for love in all the wrong places?

Well, saddle on up to a computer and join a dating site by January 5 because that’s when Match.com relationship expert Whitney Casey says the site will see the most traffic all year — mainly because everyone’s looking for a winter squeeze to warm their loins for the colder months and things are getting desperate and freezing.

If you’re cheap and only willing to join dating sites that free like OKCupid, there’s good news for you, too. It’s not just Match.com that sees more action over the coming weeks. Most dating sites see 25-30% more traffic between December 25 and February 14.

“New year, new beau! It’s that time of year, everybody sort of wants the slate cleaned of that last bad date or dating fatigue,” Casey told the Daily News. “You come from vacation and say to yourself, ‘I’m going to do this.’ And it takes a few days, you have to get a picture, set up your profile.”

When you’re about to hop online to find your special somebody, there is some preparation that needs to be done ahead of time (LIKE GETTING A NEW PERSONALITY). Online dating service Zoosk suggests providing a photo that’s not a selfie and that shows your entire body because otherwise potential daters might think you’re just a lonely disembodied head that has to roll around everywhere it goes and can you imagine what a pain that is?  LOL

Zoosk also recommends smiling over smirking in your photo, carefully proofreading your profile and NOT using emoticons, but the last thing only applies if you’re a man. Women who use smile-y emoticons get 60% more messages from potential suitors, whereas men who do the same thing get 12% less responses,.

Good luck, Valentines Day is just around the corner.
