Fuck girls chatting sites and apps

Yet many friends of mine who had previously ruled out anyone with children on a dating site are now happily dating (or married to) single parents they met in real life.With judgemental tick-boxes they would have filtered out the very person they are in love with now.

It seems unavoidable that if we have filters and tick-boxes for features and likes or dislikes, we could be cutting off literally thousands of potential suitors because of something we might have thought minor or irrelevant if we met in the flesh.

And, by the way, the tick-box that chooses whether you’re shown people with children or not can have an even more dramatic result, with 90% of the people I asked (a straw poll of 10 in the office) saying they’d chosen not to be shown people with children.

A one step Facebook log-in process leads on to a few simple questions (the most obvious – height, kids, whether you drink or smoke), a description and a photo – then you are in. To use the site fully – sending unlimited messages to other members – payment is required.

You can browse a selection of pictures and ages before logging in, anything more specific requires you to become a member. As with many free or low-cost sites, ads can be frequent and feel spammy.

e Harmony is another massive player, with 3 million users signed up.

But size isn’t everything – as anyone who has just wrapped up a three-hour swiping session on Tinder will attest.

Some find this a barrier to join, fans say it weeds out the casual chancer from those truly looking for love – and means you don’t have to wait to broach tricky topics.

Pricier – it’s £44.95 for a month, but that drops to £12.95 per month if you sign up for a year.

There are no compatibility filters, so once you’ve filtered by the basics, there’s no way of narrowing it down.

However, perhaps controversially, arguably this is more of a pro than a con – as the saying goes, opposites attract!

This week marks the biggest online dating week of the year (combined with the biggest divorce week of the year).
