Dating Sunday is around the corner, and on the evening of Sunday, January 6th, most dating apps will see the busiest activity of the entire year.
Dating Sunday, also dubbed the “Super Bowl of Dating,” is an official holiday in the love business. It’s the time for new beginnings and your next relationship could just be a click or swipe away this Sunday night.
Why is Dating Sunday becoming a trending news story?
With the beginning of every New Year, the subject of love is high on the dating totem pole for most singles. This usually happens because finding love is on New Year’s resolutions lists, holiday breakups peaked up until December 24th, and singles would like to find someone special with Valentine’s Day around the corner.

Since there’s a huge uptick in dating app usage across the board starting the first week of January, the dating industry now has an official annual holiday, Dating Sunday.
How Big is Dating Sunday?
Dating apps such as Match, Hinge, Coffee Meets Bagel, OkCupid, Tinder, and Bumble see their activity soar from 50-75%, so it’s a great time to join the digital party.
Match expects over 1.5 million messages to be sent at 9:05pm/EST, and Coffee Meets Bagel predicts the chattiest times between midnight and 1am local time.
How Can You Shine on Dating Sunday?
Know that some people are joining dating apps for the very first time, and others are rejoining after a taking a break, or a break up.
Remember having a naked profile will result in less views, messages, and dates, so it’s digital real estate that needs your attention.
Just like reading a blog, you don’t want to have a profile that was written last year, or even several years ago. If you’ve taken up a new hobby, include it on your profile. If you have tickets to a concert or sporting event, list it, and you might find a date to join you.
What will make Dating Sunday and beyond work for you is to post new photos from the places that made you the happiest and where you felt your best.
Caption them if possible with the dates and locations they were taken, or describe them in your profile to help create an ice-breaker for someone who’s intrigued by your profile
Add emoji’s to help you stand out in a flirty and fun way, and we sure about your intent on what you’re looking for.
Be Authentic About Your Dating Goals
With over half of the single population using dating apps, not everyone is looking for the same type of relationship. Some people are looking for a serious relationship, while others are looking for friendship or someone to go to a movie with.
Representing your best authentic self, will help lessen the overwhelming feeling you might get when you log on and have so many options.
The only way Dating Sunday will help you fill your date card, is to communicate and respond on Sunday night, because the squeaky wheel gets the digital love deal.
You’ll want to be chatting with people you can click with, and make sure to swap digits so you can schedule dates for the following week.
A relationship is about becoming a couple, and while you might be flattered to receive a lot of messages or views, if you don’t respond right away, someone else will. We’ve seen so many singles excited about a potential date, but when they played the waiting game to not seem too eager, they’ve lost out, as that person decided to focus on one person who was more available.
Being proactive and responsive shows you’re confident about yourself, which is a turn-on to both men and women. Playing games was last decade. It’s time to meet IRL, and let Dating jump start the process and pave the way for love in 2019.
We’re here to help you make your dating profile Irresistible for Dating Sunday, and throughout cuffing season and during peak dating season.
Wishing you much love and joy on Dating Sunday, and wherever you may swipe or roam.
