Spokeo Partners with Online Dating Expert, Julie Spira, to Discuss “The Business of Love and Dating.”


Winter is widely known as the peak romance season. From holiday party dates, to mistletoe kisses, people generally yearn for a romantic relationship more so during the holidays than at any other time.

Likewise the act of dating increases as people search for that significant other to enjoy from Christmas through Valentine’s Day. According to Psych Central, “the peak online dating season is during the holidays, between December and February.” Out of the 1000 people surveyed by Indiana University, “14 percent of men and 10 percent of women admitted to dating someone during the holidays just to have someone to spend the holidays with.”

As singles and “holidaters” filter through online profile after profile to find their potential Valentine’s Day dates, Spokeo proudly announces that Cyber Dating Expert Julie Spira will serve as its spokesperson to help single daters stay safe and navigate their way to finding true love.

“As a cyber-relations and online dating expert, I spend a large portion of my time educating singles on how to feel more comfortable and to practice online dating safety tips,” said Cyber Dating Expert Julie Spira. “Spokeo is a great tool for conducting online research and learning more about the person you’re considering. I’m excited to link up with the people search company to talk about the business of love and dating and empower more singles as they search the Internet for their perfect Valentine romance.”

Together, Spokeo and Spira will be releasing an update to Spokeo’s last report about the  relationship research habits of Americans and will focus on online dating trends leading up to the biggest romantic night of them all – Valentine’s Day.
