I’m on set at a Zombie-Valentine-themed boutique lingerie shoot (don’t ask) chatting to long-term single, serial-dating model Melis*.
Yet with the online dating industry worth £170 million by 2012, and a 2014 study predicting that more than half of couples will meet in the digital world in 20 years’ time, it’s clear that dating websites have an enduring appeal.
“When someone expresses an interest in you, whether it’s with a message, a ‘like’ or a ‘wink’ it’s like ‘BOOM! It’s this little daily self-esteem boost – A way of flirting with no consequences and without even having the leave the house”.I ask her how she met the last man she went on a real date with.“On Twitter, actually” she says, clearly surprising even herself with her answer “which in a way is better.Standard Probably the most popular choices for tech-dating newbies, these include sites like Match, E-harmony, Plenty Of Fish, Tinder and Guardian Soulmates.Tinder and Plenty of Fish are free to use, so prime stomping ground for the Melis’ of this world, whose approach to dating is much like a cat toying with a ball of string.
