A study by Chicago University in 2013 also found that couples who meet online are 25 per cent less likely to end in divorce or separation than those that began through friends or chance.
In a bid to pour some clarity on the issue, I investigated the vast and (occasionally) terrifying world of dating websites.
If you wear glasses or are into people who do, try Spex, for example. But whether you’re after a meaningful relationship or just some casual dates, there’s an almost overwhelming number of dating apps from which to choose nowadays.
Or, if you aren’t interested in dating, you can use Mime Passions solely as a Mime focused social network, since it has all the major features found on large social networking sites.You do this by being original and, above all, specific about your interests.Instead of saying that you like sunsets, mention the best sunset you’ve ever seen.Around one in four relationships start online now, and among the millennial generation, the number is likely to be even higher.But as our smartphones become increasingly powerful, fewer of us are dating from behind our desktops, rather turning to the digital devices in our pockets.
