Internet daters to get basic normality guidelines

ONLINE dating services are to issue guidelines on how to behave vaguely normally when meeting a potential partner.

Companies like Tinder are responding to dating app users behaving like rude, dysfunctional freaks despite apparently wanting to meet someone for a normal human relationship.

A spokesman said: “We’re trying to explain you shouldn’t do things like meeting someone and then just walking off while they’re at the bar if you don’t fancy them.

“If a date isn’t working out we’d encourage people to say something like ‘I think we’re too different’. That’s normal, unlike, ‘I expected someone more attractive. Fuck off.’

“People should also avoid starting a relationship then suddenly ignoring all contact from the other party without explanation, because that’s not dating, it’s being a sociopath.

“We don’t know why our users are such arseholes. They may think it’s a game and they’re basically collecting Pokemon they can shag.”

Dating app user Martin Bishop said: “I thought it was fine to start texting other potential partners at the dinner table after three minutes if the woman isn’t hot and gagging for sex.

“Also asking if they have any less minging friends I could go out with helps to get the conversation rolling.”
