Tinder, the world’s most popular app for meeting new people, teamed up with Ananya Panday to encourage singles to move on and be open to new possibilities this Valentine’s Day.

Let’s admit it: breakups are hard. And moving on is so much harder. But, you’re not alone. 43% of 2000 singles surveyed by Tinder indicated their most recent relationships ended since the pandemic began due to COVID related restrictions. If you’re not entirely over your quarantine ex or are still searching for closure from something even older, perhaps 2021 can offer hope for a fresh start.

Tinder got together with Ananya Panday to ask her how she moves on from a break-up, what her go-to moving on rituals are, and how important it is to be open to fresh beginnings.

After all, a spark is just a swipe away.

New year, new bae

Don’t let Valentine’s Day be a rude reminder of your singleness, there is so much to look forward to. The relationships yet to come, the sparks you haven’t yet felt, the first dates you are yet to go on. “You will kiss many many frogs before you find your prince or princess charming,” adds Ananya Panday.

The 22-year-old channels the cinema-lover in her every time she’s going through a break-up. “I’m very filmy about my breaks-ups. I cry, listen to music, eat chocolate, and think about the tanhai, I need my filmy moment” she says. Bollywoodizing a heartbreak can help lighten the mood. “Come to think of it, I’m not even all that sad.” She confesses her break up mood ranges between two extremes – Channa Mereya by Arijit Singh (who else?) and Don’t You Wish Your Girlfriend Was Hot Like Me and of course Arianna Grande’s Thank you, Next - the moving on anthem.

Moving on...

Everyone has their own process and timeline of grieving after a break-up-the mantra is‘ you do you’ - you do what you need, your way. One can go from burning the ex’s photo Jab We Met style to stalking them on social media soon after. “I am the biggest jasoos on planet Earth. I start with one profile, then go to their maasi’s, find out their mom’s height, their rashi – anything you’d want to know,” says Ananya. But eventually, the Kleenex runs out, the memories dry up, and you realize your ex’s Instagram profile isn’t all that interesting after all.

Love thyself

A break-up is not a failure. It is an opportunity to grow, learn, and make yourself the hero of your own love story. Self-love is the greatest form of love, and this V-day and Tinder encourages you to put yourself first. “Honestly, I always say you should rebound with yourself after a break-up, use the opportunity to fall even more in love with yourself” agrees Ananya. Treat yourself to a spa day, take a solo trip, dance to every Beyoncé and Taylor Swift track, or spend time with friends. “I always dance it out after a break-up” adds Ananya.

Tinder wants you to embrace this transition to Start Something Epic (Again) in your own way. Every experience is a part of your journey, a memory to cherish or a story to learn from. And for the days when you find yourself haunted by the memory of your ex, live by Ananya’s evergreen break-up mottos – “This too shall pass and Yeh toh trailer tha, picture abhi baaki hai mere dost."
