Jan and Feb is busy for Online Dating

Sunday January 6th is the busiest day of online dating’s high season, with many people downloading apps and swiping right, hoping to find love in the cold winter months, also known as “cuffing season.”

More people are also motivated to find love thanks to New Year’s resolutions (and the cold weather). With the holidays behind us, January is the perfect time to adopt new habits, including trying a new dating app or rejoining one you’ve used before.

Research has shown over the years that the first Sunday of January is generally the best time to download a dating app and start swiping. Most apps have reported a surge in activity on this particular day, as well as generally increased activity during the month of January through February 14th.

eHarmony in the United States and Canada is offering free communication this holiday long weekend. For 5 days starting December 29th, 2017 and running to the end of day on January 2nd, 2018 new and existing members will be able to send messages to other members at no cost and with no credit card required.

The new year is always the start of the busy season for dating services. Compared to the fall most services see a spike in visitors of more than 30 percent in the winter months. In fact the first Sunday in January is usually the busiest day of the whole year. This makes this eHarmony free communication event that much more exciting as it falls during this period. There will be lots of singles for you to be matched with who are as equally excited to message with you.

It's simple to get started, all you need to do is visit the eHarmony website and sign up as a new member. Once complete you will need to fill in your profile and take the personality questionnaire. This takes about 30 minutes to complete (you can save it and come back later to finish if you wish) and is the heart of eHarmony's automatic matching system. After your profile is finished you will then receive your first batch of matches. From here you can read through your matches profiles and communicate with those you find interesting. The one thing not included during free communication events are profile photos. To view those you must become a paid member.

For more information about this popular matchmaking service (which is available through their website and on apps for Android and iOS) please read our eHarmony review.
