It’s the holidays. And if you’re a member of America’s Singles Club — comprising more than half of all adults today — this time of year is code for “You’re sad and alone.” But that cultural stigma is fading. Some of us genuinely prefer to go solo in life, while many others actively seek that special someone.

Of course, finding a significant other is easier said and done for the contestants of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” Most of us lack the luxury of Chris Harrison’s professional matchmaking skills to help us meet the most eligible, prescreened mate — with bonus cash to boot.
