Happy Valentine's Day.

Or is it Singles Awareness Day?

However you celebrate this day of focus on all things romantic, we have some numbers for you.

It turns out that despite February 14 being the day that we all think about love, activity on America's top dating apps doesn't appear to be affected. In fact, for Tinder,, and Bumble, February 14 swiping barely registers a blip in Facebook app usage ranking.

So, if you're feeling deep in the dolrums of FOMO on this day, let the charts below comfort you. Because, as it turns out, you're not missing anything.
