Boxing Day is the Perfect Chance to Kick Start Your Love Life

Boxing Day

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are usually reserved for family and friends, but if you are looking to fall in love via an online dating site, then Boxing Day is the day to do it! Did you know that online dating websites tend to get much more traffic on December 26th, Boxing Day?

Christmas is full of good food, laughter, and cheer; but, it is also filled with questions from your family regarding your love life. Because of this, millions of people turn to an online dating site on December 26th in an effort to find a possible suitor.

The traffic increases so much that some websites report anywhere up to 350% more traffic. When we asked members of about the subject, 59% said that they take the day after Christmas to strike up a conversation with someone new — citing “to get away from family” and “taking charge of my life for the New Year” as reasons for signing up.

If you aren’t confident to do yourself justice on your profile, you aren’t alone. 84% of people say that they have their friends create their dating profile for them.

A popular television personality, Sarah Beeny, says: “By Boxing Day, everyone is a little sick of catching up with relatives and answering probing questions about their love life.

“People have more free time on their hands, and are reflecting about the past year and making plans for the new year, so what better time to sit down with friends and set up a dating profile.

“Forget watching Elf for the tenth time, or gorging on a family sized tin of Quality Street, and do something which could change your life.

“What better way to start the New Year than with a new relationship?”

By joining an online dating site, you are extending your social life, but you should never allow it to replace your social life. Sure, you are meeting new people online and perhaps even going on a few dates until you find the one, but you should also still be going out with your friends, take advantage of holiday invitations where you can meet new people, and even attend that dreaded office party. While you may be looking for love online, you don’t want that to be the only source of possible matches.

We encourage you to enjoy the holiday season. Eat delicious food, share good stories, and surround yourself with people that you love. And once the Christmas cheer is winding down on December 26th, join the millions of singles who flock to one of the many online dating sites. Remember, the week between Christmas and New Year’s is the busiest time of year for online dating, so you have much higher chances of finding the love of your life (or at the very least the love for right now) online. So why not create yourself a profile (or have a friend create one for you), and start looking for that person who you would want to ring in the new year with.
