Love in Numbers

I feel like there is something in the water recently — a plethora of friends, colleagues, and contacts proudly changed their Facebook statuses from “In a Relationship to “Engaged” over the holidays.  I am anticipating even more wedding news with Valentine’s Day fast approaching.  In honor of the much buzzed about holiday, I have decided to indulge my inner geek and search for statistics about love and Valentine’s Day.  Although I can’t say I’m a die-hard fan of the holiday, I was astounded with the numbers I uncovered.  If the owner of the 3,106.75 carat diamond ring is single, please have him give me a call…
