Are you ready for Dating Sunday? Dubbed “Dating Sunday” or “Singles Sunday,” the superficial holiday is the busiest online dating day of the year, according to several dating apps and websites. The date falls at the intersection of several cultural influences, making it “the perfect trifecta” for singles looking to find love, according to Julie Spira, a cyber-dating expert and author of “The Perils of Cyber-Dating.” “You have people recovering from a breakup or who were down during the holidays, you have all those New Year’s resolutions, and you have the clock ticking down to Valentine’s Day,” Spira said. “It’s the first lonely holiday after the New Year.”

Getting Ready

Start fresh.

Start off with a clean palette and swap out any outdated photos. If it’s been online and it hasn’t worked for you yet, it’s time to take them down and choose some new pictures.

Caption your photos. 

Information about the date and location where photos were taken gives potential suiters talking points and vacation photos are easy ice breakers. It can even give potential suitors an idea of who you are and your hobbies are from these captions.

Update your bio.

Speaking of hobbies, if you picked up any new hobbies over the past year, mention those as well as your dream travel destinations.

Use multiple apps.

There are numerous dating apps out there to choose from and the experts say having at least three accounts will help maximize your chances of romantic success. However, it’s important to use each of the apps proactively.

Don’t play hard to get. 

Communicate with people, exchange phone numbers and start setting a date to meet if you feel comfortable enough to do so – however, the whole point of Dating Sunday is to go on those dates and make those romantic connections with people!
