Recently, Bumble unveiled its Global Dating Trends for 2024. Samarpita Samaddar, the Director of Communications at Bumble India, predicts that 2024 would be a year of self-discovery for Indian singles. She said, “It’s encouraging to see daters in Bangalore are throwing away the rulebook and taking charge of their dating journeys. We know that cultural conversations around misogyny, women’s rights, and social issues, that are intertwined with our dating lives, left many exhausted this year. This has impacted the way people want to date – people are feeling more empowered in their sense of self and seeking out people who value what’s important to them, whether it’s social causes, lifestyle choices or even their favourite sports.

 It’s exciting to see people are now increasingly looking inward, and want to show up as authentic versions of themselves. We predict that 2024 will bring in a year of the self, with single Indians feeling more empowered than ever to prioritise what they value and what they will not stand for, leading to a new clarity about what they want in their romantic lives.”
