Years ago, getting involved in a relationship with someone you met online was a bit of a taboo.

Not only was it supposedly for weirdos, but it was also seen as a bit dangerous, since you couldn't tell who was on the other end.

It’s become known as the fast-moving app for fast-moving singles, mostly looking for fast-love.

I first tried Tinder – the no-nonsense app whereby you quickly browse photos and swipe to the right if you like the look of someone and to the left if you don’t – last summer.

So, last week, I shared with you my rather elaborate experience of having tried 4 online dating apps quite extensively. One, I received a ton of hate messages telling me how desperate I was to try online dating.

Whichever tactics you use in other settings to keep yourself focused, but not hyperfocused, use them here.It turns out that many of the staff at Engadget have quite a bit of experience in the online dating world.
