The birth of online dating promised so much. Singles were no longer swimming aimlessly around small pools, hoping to fall wildly in love at the office or the local pub quiz. The dating scene had suddenly become an endless vista of dazzling, potential new partners ready for romance... or so it seemed.
Fast forward to 2022 and the vibe is very different. New online dating behaviours suggest that the men and women seeking love behind a screen have become jaded. Here's what to expect when meeting a serial online dater:
Prepare To Be Underwhelmed By the Venue
The brutal truth about serial online daters is that they are totally over having to spend money on a stranger they may never see again. Remember how much thought and effort used to go into the setting of a first date? Sadly, those days are over for online singles. Cheap and cheerful wins every time and you'll be lucky if your date offers to split the bill.
Eat Before You Leave Home
Indulging in delicious cuisine is not on any serial online dater's agenda. They've got something tasty prepped and waiting at home once they've honoured you with an hour or so of their company.
Your Date Will Spend the First Ten Minutes Analysing Whether You Filtered Your Pictures
Prepare yourself for the intense stare of the serial online dater as they ponder whether or not they have been cat-fished.
You Will Probably Want to Leave Pretty Quickly
Your date has lost count of the amount of times they've shared their back story... and they just don't care about your really exciting recent promotion, or the exotic holiday you've just booked. In truth, they have started to loathe meeting strangers and just want to cut to the chase.
You Will Never Hear From Your Date Again...Unless You Text First
Serial daters are so over rejection. If you want to see your date again, you are going to have to make the first move. If not, prepare for all those chirpy 'good morning' messages to come to a screeching halt.
