Dating Sunday - The Busiest Day of the Year for Online Dating

Did you know today is Dating Sunday? It is the peak day for online dating according to online dating app/ site stats. Every year on the first Sunday of the year singles jump online to look for love. Why? The weather is usually lousy, the holidays are behind you, your weekend is winding down, and before you jump back to your Monday work routine you jump online. Here are some tips to make the most of it.

Not online? Why do it? Expanding your circles is the #1 way to meet other singles. Online dating is one of many ways to expand your circles to meet more singles of the opposite sex — with your slippers on! It is the most inexpensive way to expand your dating possibilities.

What are the top sites? In the Bay Area the most popular ones for professional singles are Bumble, The League, and Coffee Meet Bagel. Older singles (55+) tend to gravitate towards Match.com.

Being mean is the death knell of relationships.
