According to several sites, today, the first Sunday in January, is the busiest of the year in online dating.
You might try mymateyourdate.com (Disclosure: I’m on the company’s advisory board). It’s similar to Tinder in that you easily sign up with your Facebook account and when there is a mutual interest only then does the site facilitate messaging. The clever bit is that the profiles that get suggested to each other are where there is already a mutual friend in common (who doesn’t need to be a member of the site). This nudges it away from “hook up culture” to more genuine and meaningful interactions.
If you’re a guy, use a profile picture where you look away from the camera and don’t smile:
If you’re female, “selfie above the head” shots are best:
Or have a bed in the background. Men are like that.
