Bumble, the dating app where women are in charge of making the first move, has temporarily closed all of its offices this week to combat workplace stress.
Its 700 staff worldwide have been told to switch off and focus on themselves.
One senior executive revealed on Twitter that founder Whitney Wolfe Herd had made the move “having correctly intuited our collective burnout”.
Bumble has had a busier year than most firms, with a stock market debut, and rapid growth in user numbers.
The decision was praised by its head of editorial content, Clare O’Connor, as the company taking “a much-needed break”.
The pandemic has been busy for the firm as lockdown boredom set in and the swiping to find a match picked up in popularity.
The number of paid users across Bumble and Badoo, which Bumble also owns, spiked by 30% in the three months to 31 March, compared with the same period last year, according to its most recent set of results.
And Ms Wolfe Herd also became the youngest woman, at 31, to take a company public in the US when she oversaw Bumble’s stock market debut in February.
She rang the Nasdaq bell with her 18-month-old baby son on her hip and in her speech she said she wanted to make the internet “a kinder, more accountable place”.
