Prevelis online dating

‘Only show me people without children’ ‘Only show me men over 6ft 1in’ ‘Only show me vegetarians’ ‘Only show me people who don’t want kids’ The tick-boxes on many dating sites are a common part of the structure of the sites – and people often fill them in and make their choices quickly, based on in-the-moment gut feeling, prejudice or a past bad experience.But too many filters and rigid check-boxes can have you dismiss huge numbers of people at once – something that apps like Bumble, Happn and Tinder tried to do away with (though that brings its own set of issues).

With judgemental tick-boxes they would have filtered out the very person they are in love with now.

Another friend is about to marry the short, bald banker with absolutely no ‘online dating’ message-type chat she met at a party.

However, perhaps controversially, arguably this is more of a pro than a con – as the saying goes, opposites attract!

And there’s no sense in ruling someone out for reasons that may become insignificant once you’ve met in real life.

But size isn’t everything – as anyone who has just wrapped up a three-hour swiping session on Tinder will attest.
