In a release Clifford Lerner who is the CEO of SNAP Interactive, Inc. said that "It's no surprise that the World Cup, a world-wide event that only happens once every four years, would trump summer dating. After seeing these results, I would recommend if you want to ask someone out, incorporate the World Cup into that date. Watching a sports game, especially something as popular as the World Cup, will automatically give you something to talk about and can create an instant connection as you cheer on your teams."
