Romantics who count on relationship advice were probably taken aback when Anna Lovine published an article on Bumble’s 2024 Dating Trend Predictions recently. Lovine bases her research on dramatic relationship changes that can be traced back to the pandemic era when everyone rethought how we do everything—including our relationships. The sex and relationships expert agrees that the pandemic dramatically changed the way people pick romantic partners.
“It is exciting to see people continue to lean into self-acceptance and vulnerability as the foundation of healthy and equitable relationships,” she said. “When we are kinder to ourselves, we are able to make more meaningful, purposeful, and intentional connections both online and in real life.”
Dating based on shared values has become one of the most important and grounding trends, and if you’ve found The One, it’s likely your relationship is built on solid ground that deserves as much tender loving care as you and your partner can give. One of the best ways to make sure your bond endures is to prioritize getting away as often as possible so there’s time to focus on one another. The ultimate destination?
