Here's why Jan. 5 is the ultimate day for online dating

Jan. 5 is Dating Sunday, the busiest online dating day of the year.

We all know of Super Bowl Sunday, but have you ever heard of Dating Sunday?

Several dating apps say Jan. 5 is their busiest online dating day of the year. USA Today says this is because many singles felt lonely during the recent holidays, and are taking note that Valentine's Day is approaching. USA Today also says Sundays tend to be the busiest day of the week when it comes to people actively using their online dating profiles.

3News spoke to Dr. Yvonne Glass to find out if the rise in online dating can be considered a positive development.

"Use it to broaden your horizon," Glass said, adding that dating isn’t quite like it used to be, as it forces more people to think —  or swipe —  outside the box.
