It feels a bit more intimate.” Of course, if you’re nervous, there are other things you can do to speed up the getting-to-know-you process.

No longer do we see tabloid headlines screaming ‘meet the couple who found love ON THE INTERNET!

You can tell more about a person in half an hour, than weeks of emailing. “It's always better to meet an online date sooner than later - it's too easy to message endlessly, and you need to find out whether you have chemistry off-screen before you down a flirty emoticon rabbit hole that could last for weeks or months,” she explains.

“Try not to message for more than two weeks, and if you're nervous, you could always speak on the phone first.

Of course, just because you’re online dating, it doesn’t mean you should discount the chances of meeting someone offline, too.

Baldly, without meeting someone, there’s only so much information you can glean about them – knowing someone’s taste in films, music, food does not a personality make. There’s a danger of idealising them and imagining your future together before you’ve exchanged a single smile.
