(NBC News Channel) - If you're looking to connect with someone, online dating season is in full swing.

Christmas Day to Valentine's Day is the busiest period for online dating.

Match.com typically expects a 60 percent surge in new members from Christmas to Valentine's Day.

Other dating sites report similar patterns.

One reason for the surge is said to be the effects of the annual holiday breakup season.
