Behold: Reddit's best dating advice for single people


Considering we exist in a world where it’s possible to find a date quicker than it is to order pizza on Deliveroo from a restaurant you live above, it would be easy to imagine the dating game has gotten easier.

Wrong. Swipe right all you like, but going on the hunt for a soulmate can be just as much of a trying, and socially awkward experience as it ever has been. But fear not singletons, for all is not lost…

Reddit, AKA the oracle of everything you never knew you wanted to know from the keyboards of anonymous strangers, has now proven to be the unlikeliest of sources for some of the most shrewd dating advice on the Internet. After us3rnam349 asked fellow users to respond with the best dating advice they’d ever been given, the replies came in their thousands.

Here are the best…
