Whether you’re in a relationship or not, chances are February 14th is marked on your calendar. If you’re in love, perhaps it means a fancy dinner where you can attempt that hairstyle you saw on TikTok. If you're single, maybe it means a girl’s night out, or a self-care night in. Well, according to the female-forward social network, Bumble, 2024 is the Year of the Self...and here’s what it means for your dating life.
Bumble's studies show that after all of these years of working on ourselves, we’re finally over it. Alas, we’re ready to be ourselves! Even further, your single friends, or you (and definitely me), are rebelling against the need to be the best, with more than two in three women taking proactive steps to be happy with who they are now.

Ahead, we tapped Bumble’s sex and relationships expert, Shan Boodram, for the latest dating trends to look out for this season, and how they can impact your love life (no reservations required).
