For many people, putting together a dating profile is the easy bit (although believe me, there are plenty who find this task nearly impossible).
They even think that chatting in emails or on the phone isn’t so bad either but when it comes to actually going out on a date — the very reason they were online dating in the first place — this is where they panic.
