But then, those people probably don't write in excruciating detail about their love/sex life in a national magazine, so I'm not going to be quite as coy about admitting - I ONLINE DATE.
And reassuringly, I'm far from alone - with new stats showing a fairly sizeable third of UK couples now meeting online. But for those of you who haven't tried it - what's it really like to date online?

They just fade into the miasma of dating faces and you meet up with number two on the list (weirdly, often the second best guy turns out to actually be better).
You can multi-date - In fact it's hard to avoid it.
We change the game: meet, date hookup, flirt, share your fantasies and bring them to life - it is as easy as pie!Because - aside from knowing how awesome you are anyway - you have a load of other guys telling you this in message format. Phase him out for a while and see what Mr Ph D/Award-winning Playwright has to offer (clue: conversation).CONSThe photo thing - It's not just that people post the one good photo where lighting, shadows and angle combine to create AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT FACE (NB if they only have one photo, there's generally a reason for this - avoid). The chemistry thing - Yes they might be super attractive, you might have swapped eight trillion perfectly-written emails, but when you finally meet face to face - there's just A GIANT WALL OF NOTHING. It makes you super fussy - Yes, you might start with a rough rubric of 'reasonably cute...Once we find something above that level, great, let’s try it."Added to this, the metrics used by online dating services may not be the kind we naturally gravitate toward.As Dan Ariely explains in his Big Think interview, dating is a lot like tasting wine: being able to describe what you like is less important than the experience of liking it.Is it the modern day solution to finding the perfect partner?Or just another way to explore the hells of dating?Taboo a short time ago, online dating is now widely accepted, but has the effectiveness of finding a mate on the Internet changed along with our opinion of it?
