Girl guide to dating

“I give up,” proclaims a girlfriend, flinging her cherished i Phone 7 on the table as though it were an explosive device.

Over the past year, online dating fatigue has become a justifiable phenomenon that is forcing more single people to adopt a blasé approach or even abandon it altogether.
