Busiest day for online dating

Ready for a relationship in 2018? Increase your chances of finding long-lasting love this year by making the most of the busiest day on eharmony UK

New year, new start. If your 2018 resolution is to find a happy, long-lasting relationship then you don’t want to miss the busiest day! Monday 1st January will officially be the busiest day for online dating on eharmony UK, with sign-ups increasing by 140%. And if you want to increase your chances even further, make sure you log on between 9 and 10pm – eharmony registrations are predicted to jump by 222% during this time. Already missed the deadline? Don’t worry. January is a great month to get started – 63% more messages are exchanged between singles online than in any other month.

But how can you make the most of peak dating season? It’s easier than you might think. Here’s how you can make the most of the busiest day:

Take the Relationship Questionnaire

At eharmony, we believe that happy, long-lasting relationships are built on compatibility. You and your partner may not share all the same interests but, when it comes to core values and personality traits, you should be in sync. The Relationship Questionnaire does take some time to complete but it’s an invaluable part of the eharmony experience. Not only will it help us find great matches for you, it’ll also help you figure out what you really want from a partner. Factors like ambition, family values, and extroversion are all considered. Just be as honest as possible to see the best results.

Create your profile

Complete your online dating profile

Your profile is the first impression you’ll make on your matches. The more information you include, the more effective your profile will be. The most important things to remember when writing your profile are to be yourself, be concise (but not too concise – no one word answers), and include details to help you stand out from the crowd. With so many more singles signing up to eharmony on the busiest day, it’s the little details that’ll really make a difference. If you love films, for example, why not list a few of your favourites? Or if you’re an expert in the kitchen, what’s your signature dish?

Upload a selection of photos

The more photos you upload, the better. Aim for at least 5; one head shot, one full body, and a few that show you doing the things you love most. This way, your matches will see you at your happiest (and most attractive) while also finding out more about your personality. Smiling really makes a difference and avoid using a group shot as your main profile photo. You don’t want prospective dates to skip over your profile because they don’t know which one you are!

Make the first move

One of the best things about the busiest day is that you know there are hundreds of other singles actively looking for love online, just like you are. These are people who have made the same resolution as you and are making a real effort to find love. Let this knowledge give you confidence. Don’t wait. If a profile catches your eye, break the ice by sending a smile or find out more by asking them a multiple-choice question. There’s no need to be shy. The more people you reach out to, the more you increase your chances of finding that someone special.
