With Americans from around the country returning home for Thanksgiving last Thursday, matches on Tinder rose by 23% over the holiday period.
Last year, the app saw a total of 2.3bn swipes over Thanksgiving.
This holiday period, the app saw over 17m matches, a 23% increase compared to a normal weekend.
Tinder sociologist Dr. Jess Carbino said: “People typically tend to be attracted to those with a similar demographic background – from age, occupation, education and more.
“Individuals who grow up in the same areas are more likely to have shared experiences, making home a great place for singles with similar values to connect.”
In terms of the most popular US cities, Detroit saw the biggest increase with a 54% rise compared to normal weekends, followed by Houston with 43% and Washington D.C. seeing a 41% hike.
