It can be hard to tell whether someone you’ve been chatting to online is genuinely interested in you. Here are our tips for sorting the frank from the fickle.
Roughly seven million UK residents are currently using dating sites, according to a recent study of online dating services . Yet, only two thirds – 66% – of online daters say they have actually gone on a date with someone they’ve met through a dating site or app. So what’s stopping the other third from meeting up?

Other times, you’ve been chatting away for weeks, but pinning down a date for that first big meet proves impossible. Sound familiar? Here are some tips for sorting the frank from the fickle.
