Are You Ready For 'First Date Day?'

December 20, 2016

The biggest day for dating in 2017 falls on New Year's Day, at least according to the dating app Hinge.

The data shows people have the holidays, decide this is the year for love and go forth and try to find someone on New Year's Day and exchange numbers - all in one day.

Google Trends data from the first week of January, dating back to 2012, shows that the search term "dating" peaks during the first week of the new year. New Year's Day 2016 saw a 35% spike in new users on Hinge. On Tinder the most popular day to match is Sunday, and this year New Year's Day falls on a Sunday, so best of luck!
