If you want to make 2018 the year you find love, your time is coming this weekend. According to dating sites like Match.com and Plenty of Fish, Sunday, January 7th is going to be their busiest day of the year.
Match.com predicts a 42% spike in new users starting at 9 p.m. Sunday. And Plenty of Fish expects record signups on their site January 7th as well as a 14% increase in the average daily rate for conversations started on the site. That’s why Kate MacLean, a spokesperson for the dating site says that may make this Sunday, January 7th the best day of the year to find love online.
So what’s so special about this day? Well, it’s the first Sunday after the new year and Sundays are already a popular day for online dating. Plus, the beginning of a new year makes singles hopeful about the future, especially if they’ve just suffered through the holidays single, with relatives asking the old “why aren’t you in a relationship yet?” question over and over. So people are more motivated to look for love now, but the competition is fierce. Make sure your profile stands out and good luck.
