Everyone remembers how easy it was in college or university.

Thousands of like-minded people of the same age and lots of different social events made dating pretty easy.

Now that you’ve got a job the pool of choice has been reduced greatly.

Imagine you do miraculously happen to bump into a handsome, single man in the supermarket on one of your few trips out of the house.

Chances are that he’ll be presented with a stressed looking woman with bags under her eyes and unwashed hair scraped back in a ponytail and he’ll probably run a mile never to know what a funny, charming girl you actually are.

With your internet dating profile you can choose a killer photo of you in your favourite dress and spend hours perfecting your “About Me” paragraph to make you sound smart, witty, fun and interesting.

It’s not about lying about who you are: it’s about showing your best side and your best side often isn’t on show when you’re on a mad dash around Tesco.

Internet dating is going from strength to strength as more people are turning to the internet to increase their chances of finding love. We don’t all have the time to go out every night, drape ourselves seductively over the bar and wait for a handsome man to come and sweep us off our feet.

Previously, meeting your partner online was considered a very strange thing to do; people would have wondered what was wrong with you and what sort of weirdo you had plucked from the internet, but nowadays people are seeing the benefits of online dating. No, work commitments mean we get precious little time to socialise in the evenings.

By the time we’ve finished our working day we’re often too tired to do anything except heat up last night’s leftovers and relax in front of some mindless TV.

The weekends aren’t much better: we need to catch up with the housework and sleep not to mention the weekly shop and the meals we need to prepare for the week ahead.
