When is the best time to swipe on Tinder?

According to the masterminds behind the app themselves, the best time to be swiping is 9pm on Monday. Which makes sense really, feeling the Monday blues and want a bit of a pick-me-up, you've spent another weekend on your own when all of your friends were out with boyfriends or on dates – you're going to result to dating apps.

March was the most active month for British people going swiping.

Blue Monday and Blue Monday Eve saw the most sign ups in the UK – and for anyone that doesn't know, that's Sunday 14th and Monday 15th January – when it's dark and people start worrying about the prospect of Valentine's Day alone.

The most conversations were started on the app on the weekend of the 13-14th October 2018.
