report, online dating sites JDate and Christian Mingle surveyed over 2,600 U. singles between the ages of 18 and 59 to find out how they felt about dating in the digital age. While many have said that online dating comes complete with a "shopping cart" mentality, with a large bouquet of singles on dating sites, one would think Internet daters' date cards would be filled with a different date every day of the week.As the stigma of online dating continues to dissipate, with 85 percent believing that online dating is socially acceptable, the study looked at the behaviors of the online dating cycle from first contact to moving in together, marriage and dating etiquette. According to the survey, while most singles are writing to several people at once, in reality, they prefer to date one person at a time.I think it’s reasonable to expect that through the course of a courtship, one person shines through and the rest slough off as a strong, monogamous relationship is formed.

You'll get a rush from the excitement and gain a sexy, dating-queen confidence at the same time.

"There are plenty of benefits to having lots of dates, not the least of which is that you'll project a self-assured, carefree attitude when meeting new people, men in particular," says Gould.

The good news is that the stigma about online dating is continuing to diminish.

Two out of three singles in the survey knew people who met as a result of online dating and an overwhelming 94 percent of singles believe that online dating expands their dating pool, with 86 percent saying it speeds up their search as compared to being set up by friends. Online dating is available 24 hours a day, so the convenience factor is there.

But being so politely planned out — limiting yourself to one guy per weekend or even per day — could cause you to lose momentum.

So go ahead and pack your PDA with appointments as tightly as you can swing it.

When we’re going out on first date after first date, there will likely be some overlap.

I think it’s common that in the beginning stages of a potential relationship, we’re still dating other people.

Going on a few dates with a few people simultaneously should help the process and help you become a better dater, right?
