The Best Day to Go on a Dating App In 2023 Is Only a Few Days Away


Every heard of ‘Dating Sunday’? Neither had we, but it’s a thing.

Referring to the first Sunday of the year (which falls on January 8, this year), Dating Sunday is the day when there is the most activity on dating apps there will be all year. It’s when new singles sign up and when those previously on apps return.

The idea is people following the “new year, new me” mentality are most likely to put their resolutions into action this Sunday. In past year, dating apps have experienced a massive surge in users and activity on Dating Sunday.

Most of Australia’s biggest dating apps, including Bumble, Tinder, Hinge and Grindr, all reported a surge during last year’s Dating Sunday. According to Bumble, there was an increase of 13.8 per cent in matches, and the number of messages sent was 14 per cent above the usual daily average.

How Can You Use Dating Sunday To Your Advantage?

If you’re single and wanting to meet someone, get on an app!

It’s a Sunday. You’re recovering from a big end of year, spent with family, friends and a lot of champagne. You’ve left old wounds behind, you’ve got a fresh slate. You’re feeling energised and excited for what the new year will bring to you.

You’ve also probably got some super cute photos from Christmas and New Years events. Now’s the time to put them to good use! Take those good photos, fresh perspectives and well-thought-out new years resolutions and culminate them into one 10/10 dating profile. You’ll never feel more ready than now.

What If You Miss It?

Don’t fear. While Dating Sunday is the day when all of the action happens, the entire period between New Year’s and Valentine’s Day is pretty damn busy — when it comes to dating.

And it’s not that surprising. The period just after January 1 and spanning through to V-Day — with a peak on Dating Sunday — is the most active time for dating apps. Just for context, during this period last year, over 52.8 million messages were sent among the Bumble community in Australia. That’s a lot of potential love stories.

So, get yourself out there and find one (or many) of your own.
