It seems that it differs between people and can also depend on how much exposure you have had to social media and online dating.It’s also important to note that age can be a factor too.

Loads of my friends have met their other halves online now and it’s just not a big deal anymore’.On the other hand, Jess believes that there’s no stigma to being in a relationship that started online having been in one herself.It could be argued that Tinder removes this awkward first encounter by lubricating the cogs of conversation, but I myself have come across many a creep on it.I once had a guy open with the line ‘Wow, you’re a bit of a c**t aren’t you?
