If you have ever experienced online dating and dating apps, chances are at one point or another, you’ve attempted to chuck your phone at a wall because ONLINE DATING IS SERIOUSLY THE WORST.

When I first entered the industry in 1988, joining an agency was seen as a last resort – fast forward to 2010 it is now seen as a first port of call.

Figures released by Google say that in the last 12 months: • 52% of men and 48% of women have used the internet to find love • 53% of singles (59% men and 46% of women) say they intend to use the internet to meet someone in the future • 49% of men and 36% of women stated they would not curb their dating spending in a tight economy With such a growing market and more and more people using agencies (whether on-line or off-line), some normally sensible singles lose their head when it comes to affairs of the heart.

Whether it’s too many aimless dates or no matches at all, it’s easy to get burned out by online dating.
