Every year, in the period from January 1st to February 13th, Tinder experiences what they call a "swipe surge." A swipe surge is essentially when Tinder activity reaches an all-time high.
Members swipe on an average of 100 times more per person than other time periods. Plus, when you add the number of new people who join tinder over the period, the math really gets exciting. In fact, last year's "Swipe Season" saw matches increase to 40 million on average, worldwide!
Basically, if you don't have a date for Valentine's day, the swipe surge is going to save your ass - if you're smooth. We made a little guide for you to navigate through this wonderful surge to get you more matches and dates -
1. Introverts, It's Your Time To Shine
The top 3 most commonly mentioned personality types were all introverts in last year's Tinder data. The word "introvert" was mentioned several times in bios which has been shown to have the highest number of matches. So if you're an introvert, this is the time to make a big deal of it in your bio and make the most of it.
2. Zodiac Signs Are Apparently Great
Zodiac signs have always been a judgement for someone's personality, even off of Tinder - so it's no surprise that zodiac signs are big on Tinder. Mentioning star signs in bios grew 16% on Tinder this past year. It's another ice-breaker for people and an easy conversation starter that makes sure you don't have to resort to overused lines about polar bears to break the ice.
3. Stand For What You Believe In
People have more than just the surface to scratch on Tinder even though it may not look like it. Mentions of climate change in bios alone have increased by 80% in the last year. So simply add what you're passionate about in your bio, like - feminist, climate change activist, environmentalist and anything else you truly believe in.
This is the best time to get your A-game on, and attract a lot more matches and dates!
