Anyone who’s dabbled in online dating has been in this position. You’ve found a good match — a box-ticker. They’re attractive, smart, funny, and they share your bizarre love of antique teacups. What’s more, when you message them they reply! Who knew online dating could be so easy?

Having said that, simply ignoring someone you have met in person via an online dating site is absolutely unacceptable. They deserve to know if you have no intention of seeing them again.
