In fact, this one day will account for 10 percent of the swipes in the whole month. And last year, more than 44 million matches were made on Dating Sunday. So why this Sunday?
"After the party is over, people are focused on accomplishing the goals they have set for themselves for the new year — that’s exactly when Dating Sunday rolls around," Rosette Pambakian, Vice President of Brand Marketing & Communications, tells Bustle. "People have resolved to be more adventurous and try something new, so we’ve noticed that more and more people sign on to Tinder during the first Sunday of the month."
It's certainly a good day to get swiping — and Tinder has proof of it. "Sunday is traditionally the busiest day of the week for Tinder use, and the 'try something new' mindset really amplifies this," Pambakian says. "Last year, more than 44 million matches were made on Dating Sunday. In fact, nearly 10 percent of total swipes in January are typically accounted for on Dating Sunday because people are committed to succeeding with the goals they put forth for the new year."
