Singles resolve to find love in 2013
New year, new dating prospects.
While being single certainly has its perks, a recent survey found that many singles have resolved to find love in 2013.
Being in a "solid and happy relationship this time next year" was a top goal for the majority of singles surveyed. A more casual resolution—more sex—was also a goal.

Dating site Cupid.com surveyed 1,000 single people and asked them what kind of resolutions they planned to make for the new year. Fifty-nine percent want to be in a solid relationship, and 39 percent of respondents said "having more sex" was a resolution.
Eleven percent of men went even further with their relationship resolutions, hoping to be "settled, possibly married and thinking about starting a family within the next year."

Men also plan on being more adventurous in their dating choices this year, with twice as many men than women determined to venture beyond their "usual type."
Non-relationship resolutions also made the list, with 26 percent of those polled saying they planned to visit "a new destination in 2013." Thirty-two percent of women also want to spend more time on themselves in the new year.
But back to dating. Interestingly, six percent of men polled in the survey said they hope to date a celebrity within the year.
Hey, at least they're ambitious.
