With just 11 days into the new year have your dating priorities changed for 2023? This past Sunday, January 8th, was Dating Sunday. Every year on the first Sunday in January, dating apps see a huge surge in dating activity because people have more free time after the holidays and singles begin looking for short term partnerships to pass the colder months of the year during Cuffing season. Tinder, for example, saw 35% more swiping and 30% more matches than on a regular day.
Recently, Bumble conducted a survey of over 14,000 singles who use their app. More than one third (39%) of people on Bumble ended a marriage or a serious relationship in the past two years. These people are now jumping into their second chapter with 36% using dating apps for the first time. 70% are feeling positive about romance in 2023, a year that will be defined by creating a greater work/ life balance.
After two years of being secluded, working from home and having virtually no social life, singles are shifting their priorities. Gone are the days when job titles and long work hours were seen as a symbol of status. The pandemic resulted in a worldwide shift in how we all think about and value, not only our own work, but our potential partner’s work too. The survey indicates that more than half of us (54%) care more about a partner’s work-life balance than their career status. 52% of us are actively creating more space for breaks and rest and 13% of people said that they are uninterested in dating someone with a very demanding job.
