Now that the holidays are officially upon us and cuffing season is in full swing, the thirst is real. Whether you're turning to dating apps to find a plus-one for your office holiday party or to lock in a New Year's Eve kiss at midnight, swiping through potential matches on your phone is probably as close to a cardio workout as you'll get over the next few months. Since dating apps tend to get jammed during this time of year with all the other people who had the same idea as you, here are 17 festive lines to put in your bio during the holidays to really stand out.
Let's be honest, you've already decorated every square inch of your apartment and changed your Twitter screen name to something corny, like Sydnee Claus (I'm just guessing). Why not spruce up your dating app bio while you're at it? A festive bio lets potential matches know that you're fun and approachable — or if your bio says, "Bah humbug," that you're cynical but still cute. It's a quick and painless way to express your personality without having to craft an actual sentence about yourself.
