Phone chating and dating

Flirting on the phone with a complete stranger is fun and exciting.

Thousands of single people meet and hook up every day by calling the dating chatlines, and you can try them all for free!

If you’ve never tried calling a late night singles chat line, you don’t know what you are missing.

Studies have suggested that anything between 35 and 50 per cent of all couples in the UK, now meet via the web.

What’s more, a study by dating site e Harmony, estimated that seven in ten couples will have done so by 2040 – with 55 to 64-year-olds experiencing the biggest boom (an expected 30 per cent rise between 20).

But a recent study by the University of South Florida suggests that – while a short period of messaging is fine – we actually shouldn’t wait too long to arrange a meeting.

Published in the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, it explains that there’s a ‘tipping point’ when it comes to online dating.
