January is a hot month for dating

If you don't find your New Year's Eve kiss, fear not. There are plenty of fish in the sea if you just go surfing. That's because January is the hottest month to find love online, according to dating apps Hinge and Coffee Meets Bagel.

So why January? Dating experts seem to credit a phenomenon known as cuffing season -- a time when people are looking to cozy up with someone during those cold winter months.

Colorado-based matchmaker Misty Lebowitz says January is the month when most dating sites get up to 55 percent of their clients.

If by the end of January you still haven't found your snow-mate, don't worry. For those of us in the northeast it is a long winter and the number of dating app users keeps spiking for the next 2 months.

So as long as the ice is still on the pond, the fishing is just fine.
