It’s not just The Beatles who get by with a little help from their friends, online daters can also benefit from the support of their friends during every step of the process.

Selecting photos

You’re convinced that a slightly fuzzy photo is the perfect way to hide those tiny wrinkles that nobody else even notices, but your friends will be able to see past that and will help you to find a photo that shows people how great you really look in HD.

Writing your perfect profile

Ask your friends what they think of when they like best about you. It might be your sense of humour, your ability to settle an argument, or your unrivalled dance moves and it’s unlikely to be what you expected them to say. They’ll also be able to help you with amusing anecdotes that will show people more about your personality than a list of likes and dislikes would.

Your friends can also help you to look for any embarrassing typos that you may have missed.

Veering from your type

If you always go for well-spoken brunettes, or confident rugby players, your friends can help you to look for suitable people who may not fit in with your usual specification.

Providing a second opinion

Once you’ve met with your date a few times and have found yourself to be completely smitten, you can introduce them to your friends and see what their opinion of your date is. If your friends are delighted for you, then you know that you are on to a good thing.

Best man/ chief bridesmaid

More married couples meet through online dating than any other method, so your best friend can help you out by being your best man or chief bridesmaid when you meet your perfect match.
