Social media is helping people fall in love even faster, and according to a new study by PIXmania, it takes an average of 224 tweets, and 70 Facebook messages.
The company found that use of social networks, and other technologies such as email or text messages, have helped cut the time to fall in love in more than half.
For couples 55 and older, it took 78 days on average to start an intimate relationship, and just 24 days for couples 25 and under.
Compared to Twitter and Facebook, it also took 163 text messages, 37 emails and 30 phone calls.
Ignoring traditional dating advice, 68 percent of survey participants communicate with the other person within four hours after a first date.
On average, men send around 517 Facebook messages and tweets every year to potential love interests, and women send around 386.
Couples still write love letters to each other, but PIXmania found that number to be less than 10 percent.
While 36 percent of people break up over the phone, 27 percent ended a relationship via text message, and 13 percent broke up via social media.
