If your New Year's resolution is to find your soulmate, make sure your phone is fully charged on Sunday and your swiping finger is aimed and ready.
Multiple online dating platforms like Hinge, Match and Tinder say the first Sunday of the new year is the busiest online dating day of the year.
In 2017, more than 44 million Tinder matches were made on "Dating Sunday," according to ABC News. That's almost 20 million more than an average day on the app.
Dating app Hinge analyzed data from the past two years on the first Sunday of the new year, finding that in 2018, 59 percent of people started new conversations on Dating Sunday than the week before and 62 percent more people set up dates on that day.
OKCupid told Bustle the site is expecting a 70 percent increase in users on Sunday, and Coffee Meets Bagel said it sees a 75 percent increase on the day.
Why the boost? Match told Maxim last year it could be because the day is smack dab in the middle of the peak season for online dating, which they estimate starts Dec. 26 and ends on -- you guessed it -- Valentine's Day. It could be because of New Year's resolutions, it could be because of the pressure some people face from family members who criticize them for not having found their partner yet, or it could be because it's cold outside and cuffing season continues well after the holidays.
