As with Tinder, only people who like the look and sound of each other will be able to make contact.

Despite its frequent frustrations and disappointments, I loved my adventurous year of internet dating.

I met a staggering array of people, had some good times, and learnt a lot - about myself and others.

High50's Monica Porter, who dated "dangerously" for a year, shares nine top tips to help protect yourself, including: don't believe anything, be careful who you get into bed with and split the check.

If you're looking for romance through online dating, make skepticism your starting point, says Monica.

But - hard-nosed as it sounds, and I can't pretend it's always easy - take the emotion out of it or you will be hurt over and over again.

If and when a deeper relationship comes along, don't worry, emotion will come flooding back. Most people have heard the woeful tales of vulnerable, lonely women preyed on by men who promise them love before persuading them to stump up big bucks for a bogus medical bill or some other phony hard-luck scenario. There are also the glamorous young foreign women (often revealed to be prostitutes) who expertly manipulate an older man's vanity as an easy way into his wallet, or perhaps to gain British nationality. Lesson number two: if it all sounds too wonderful to be true, that's because it's a lie.

Remember that like any other business, dating sites want your money, and they have been known to employ tricks to encourage you to sign up, such as using fake profiles of potential partners who "want to contact you". OK, it's not really a rule, but another option is the dating app for your smartphone, which matches you with people in your geographical area, if you have both registered a mutual attraction. If you are over 50 and looking for something a bit more, um, traditional, there is a new app for you, called Stitch.

I spent a wild week or two on Tinder, meeting younger men. It's being trialled at the moment in the US and Australia.

These are usually the candidates without a profile photo. To begin with I used a dating site designed for principally for seniors, but I would advise against this. It attracts the sort of people who only feel safe among their own age group.
