‘From the notes app in my iPhone because I have been working on this list all year.
‘First off, there were seven first dates, seven first dates in 2023. That is a 29.2% increase from 2022, where I had three first dates and 2021 where I had fourteen first dates.

She continued ‘We had three second dates total in the year 2023 and thirteen dates in general that I went on dates with so that’s pretty good news.
‘I dunno how I got from seven to three to thirteen yet but we love a recycle moment.’

‘That’s a complete decrease,’ she told viewers ‘TikTok 18% and mutual friends in person, 27%’.
Adding ‘So we can notice a pattern, 2023 seems to be the year of the in person meet and greet, so that 27% number is up from 0% the previous year – those are some pretty big numbers.
‘So, credit where credits due, one Hinge date, which equated to 9% is pretty wild.’
She continued ‘Boys who made me cry, this is the true Olympics of Dating Wrapped. If you made me cry this year, congratulations – that’s all four of you, I’m watching you’.
Next, she shared the number of boys who she thought would be my boyfriend, which was three.
