We all have those friends who seem to be able to fit online dating seamlessly into their lives – you know the ones; when you meet them on a Saturday afternoon they’ve already had brunch out with someone hot, whilst the most you have achieved so far that day is making a marmite sandwich in your pyjamas. So how do they do it, these happy, bouncy, energetic online daters? What’s their secret? Well, here are a few of them…
