New Study Reveals Sunday is the Loneliest Day of the Week

A recent study conducted by found that Sunday might be the loneliest day of the week, as it is the day when most people use online dating apps.

The study analysed keyword search volumes for “Tinder”, “Bumble”, “Hinge” and “Plenty of Fish” in the United States over a 12-week period, and discovered that Sunday consistently had the highest search volumes of every day of the week, indicating that people are feeling lonely and seeking connection on this day.

The study's lead researcher, Daniel Grainger, said, "By looking at keyword search volume, we get a look into group human behaviour. In this case, we can clearly see that Sunday is when most people have time to themselves and want to make a connection with other people – indicating feelings of loneliness to some degree. As Sunday is traditionally a family day, it's unsurprising that Sunday is when single people are most active on dating apps."

There are several reasons why this might be the case. One possible reason is that Sunday marks the end of the weekend and the start of a new work or school week, which can certainly give rise to feelings of dread or anxiety for some.

Moreover, Sunday may be a day when single individuals, or those without a partner, have more free time to themselves and less social interaction with friends or family due to families and couples having a family day. This might lead to downtime and feelings of loneliness or dissatisfaction, which encourages people to seek connection through online dating apps.

It's important to remember that online dating is certainly a viable way of meeting new people and making significant connections - but we mustn’t neglect the underlying feelings of loneliness that may drive us to seek connection through these apps.

This is why carried out this study: “We at conducted this study to help people identify some potential triggers in their daily lives that might be causing unhappiness. This type of personal awareness and self-knowledge is the first step in changing circumstances with which one might not be content,” says Mr. Grainger. offers a variety of resources, including articles, guided meditations, and tips for getting started with a meditation practice, which can help people to manage feelings of loneliness.

Practicing mindfulness and meditation can help individuals connect with themselves and their emotions, leading to greater self-awareness, emotional regulation, and a sense of inner peace. This improves overall well-being and ultimately makes forming healthy and fulfilling connections with others easier.
