We can’t always be Wildean and beautifully lyrical in our conversations, but if you find yourself reaching for an expletive, where a more civilised adjective or noun would do better, then expect your dating prospects to go as badly as your language.
Does it sound like you, or someone you know? Tell us your story in the comments, expletive-free, of course!
While online dating & professional matchmaking services continue their upward trend in Ireland, we are still miles behind our UK and US single counterparts. Very often embarrassment is the reason we are given by Irish singles for the reluctance to try dating this way.
We are often asked ‘does online dating work?’ or ‘are dating sites real?’ and, of course, our overwhelming answer is yes, however that does depend on what you are looking for and where you are looking for it.
