Sydneysiders were among the thirstiest dating app users in the world this NYE, according to Happn. Singles in Sydney swiped furiously to snatch the city one of the top ten rankings in the world for the rate of crushes (the Happn equivalent of matches).
The 400,000 Aussie users of the dating app were busy on their phones, with a quarter of all users getting a crush on New Years. That’s the same amount of people as Paris! Move over, City of Love.
Sydney users were beat only by Rio de Janeiro, where 63% of users got a crush, and Sao Paulo, where over half the users received a crush.
Apparently the Sydney fireworks were quite the aphrodisiac, as thirsty Happn users catapulted Sydney into the top ten cities worldwide for crushes, behind some of the most romantic destinations in the world.
