Calling all you single people, this Sunday is going to be the best day to use your dating app! If you’re single and ready to mingle then you need to be on a dating app this weekend.

According to Tinder, Sunday, January 8th is the best day to look for love and we know why. When talking to the dating app gurus, HelloGiggles learned that the first Sunday of the new year is usually the most popular day for swiping and is called “Dating Sunday.”

For all you smarties out there, you know that this year New Year’s day was actually the first Sunday of the month, so this time around the second Sunday is going to be dating gold. So don’t worry about missing out on that New Year’s Eve kiss, because this weekend is for singles.

The app explained that they expect a significant spike in users and downloads that day, which leads to more possible matches aka more love connections. Plus, they’ve already seen a spike in usage on January 1st, so people are ready for love.

“Typically we’ve seen a spike in people joining and using Tinder at the beginning of each year,” Tinder Sociologist Dr. Jess Carbino revealed.

“With the close of one year comes new beginnings in the next, and during the last few weeks of the year, people often take time to reflect on their accomplishments, failures, as well as reassess how to improve their lives in the New Year – especially in the romance category.”

The new year could mean a new you and a new relationship which is very exciting. Plus, who doesn’t like to see what else is out there in the dating world without any real pressure? A dating app is ideal for looking for love and then deciding at a later date if it’s actually meant to be.

In preparation for the swiping Sunday experience, Tinder released a top 10 list of cities that had the most swipes on last year’s Dating Sunday. If you are in one of these cities, get excited because matches are even more likely.
