There are a few reasons everyone logs on on January 3. Revive your dating profiles, shake off the cobwebs (and by cobwebs I mean old, pre-haircut pictures), and have a trusted friend review your bio, because we're in prime online dating season. A new year is a great time for new beginnings, including new dudes, and according to some data released by Match.com, the first Sunday of the new year (January 3) is the busiest day of the year for online dating. The dating site coined the term "Dating Sunday" (which, IMO, is better than Super Bowl Sunday) just for the occasion.
There's also overall holiday blues, lots of breakups around holiday time, and New Year's resolutions to find love in 2016.
But all you really need to know is that Sunday might be your best chance at meeting someone ~special~ online.
savvy and really want to capitalize on the fresh market of online daters, the exact peak time Sunday, Jan.
If finding ~love~ is one of your 2016 resolutions, statistically speaking, now's the time to give that dating app a shot.
If you absolutely hate it, you can always delete the app and forget it ever happened.
I’m a big believer in efficiency when it comes to dating. Y’see, online dating can seem for folks, especially people who have a touch of approach anxiety or hate the bar and club scene but don’t necessarily want to try hitting up strangers at Barnes and Noble. In practice, however, we have these tendencies to expend a lot of our time and energy on aspects of dating which prone to wasting your time with online dating than you are trying to meet women by making a cold approach at a bar or making small-talk with the cute librarian you ran into at Starbucks.Why do all of that when you can meet women without leaving your house?Flirt to your heart’s content without even bothering to get dressed!Almost every online dating site out there has some form of a low-stakes “hey, so and so wants you to talk to them” notification – often given a cutsey name like “wink” or “flirt” or “send a flower” to make it seem more acceptable. Most dating sites let you set up a profile for free but require that you pay money in order to be able to message people.Some, back in the early days of online dating (lo those dark days of the late 90s and early 00s), were evil and would sell a limited number of messages; if you sent out a message and didn’t hear back, well, tough shit Charlie, you just blew a buck (or whatever the per-unit cost was). were intended as a way of trying to get someone to message so that you could chat without wasting your hard-earned money.
