“Get to the first date as quickly as possible – you only need to exchange two or three messages before you suggest meeting – you won’t know if there’s anything between you until you’re face-to-face.After all this is about dating, not emailing.” Along the way, you’ll almost certainly meet some duds.You can have matching profiles, get on like a house on fire over email, and then have zero chemistry in real life. “Online dating should be an enjoyable and fun experience.Don't take it too seriously and prepare yourself to meet plenty of nice, friendly people who you absolutely don't fancy. Many people go on around 30 dates before they meet someone they really fall for online.Ask your friend to keep an eye out for overused phrases.” Honey adds: “It's a good idea to emphasise your activities as people tend to be attractive to those who convey health and vitality.” It’s true – two of the most commonly used words in profiles on Ok Cupid are yoga and (slightly more intimidatingly) surfing.
