6. If you've heard about the popularity of free dating sites putting off filling out your singles profile, an estimated 40 million singles use online dating so maybe you should stop putting it off and join in?



7. Posting a brash, interesting and well thought out dating profile and photo will get you twice as many responses online compared to reserved dating profiles with no photo.



8. Don't underestimate the significance of a first date. Certainly take a casual approach but do remember that men will decide within 15 minutes into a date whether a second date is on the cards, for the women, they are a little more patient often taking up to 1 hour to assess any potential chemistry.



9. Money and finance is the biggest cause for arguments among American couples, so get your first date off on the right note and try not to squabble about whose picking up the dinner bill, sometimes it's just easier for the man to pay - "call me old fashion".



10. Breaking up is becoming easier among modern singles, with around 46% of people emailing their intention to split up. Yes it's rude, also convenient, either way it's a common way to say good-bye.
