Experts Share Dating Trends To Look Out for in 2024

Match and POF spill the tea so you can date smarter.

With the goal of helping singles date smarter, Plenty of Fish dating app releases their annual list of dating trends to expect in 2024.

From TikTok’s Tabi thief to men revealing their quiet dumping secrets on Twitter, dating in 2023 was very layered. Plenty of Fish foresaw much of this in its 2023 dating trend report as it coined “Infla-dating,” a term referring to inflation and how its forced singles to be more frugal and for some, ditch dating as they can’t afford it. Ironically, right before the summer wrapped, TikTok users witnessed the Tabi Thief steal literal designer shoes for his — checks notes — girlfriend.

According to Plenty of Fish, 2024 has the potential to be just as chaotic, so here’s what you should keep an eye out for.

Rizz-Colored Glasses:

For the millennials in the chat, “rizz” refers to charisma and charm. “Though ‘rizz”‘is attractive to 52% of today’s singles, 43% are falling for someone’s ‘rizz’ – only to realize they’re incapable of getting deep.”

Canon-Bailing:

“Cultivating your identity outside of a relationship. Every hero’s journey needs a canon event – a pivotal moment that changes your life and sets you on a better path. And what’s more heroic than prioritizing your own needs in a relationship? 32% of singles know someone who has canon-bailed to focus on their own identity.”

Vision Board Dating:

Thinking of moving? Get a head start and adjust “your dating app location to somewhere you’re considering moving to. POF says to just think of it as manifestation — via dating apps. “If you are fantasizing of a beach date or romantic hike in some other city and thought about making the change permanent – you’re not alone. Almost a quarter (23%) of singles have experienced someone editing their app location to a more desirable location.”

Thera-posing:

Calling all “therapy speak“-ers: “Setting clear boundaries and prioritizing open communication is an important skill in relationships (and therapy is a green flag!), but singles have some hesitations around their dates overly leveraging ‘therapy speak.’” This can look like “overusing or mislabeling clinical terms and language to describe certain behaviors.”

Premature Intimacy:

Vulnerability and “sharing your thoughts and feelings” are essential for connection-building. What’s not, though, is drama dumping and spilling your personal tea way too soon. “A slightly different take on TMI (too much information), PMI is all too prevalent amongst today’s singles, with almost 2/3 (65%) experiencing oversharing, too quickly.”

Crypt-ick:

“Getting the ‘ick’ or reconsidering your relationship because someone you’re dating revolves their life.” For example, crypto bros or finance bros that cannot formulate a thought outside of the market.
