Following a bad date, singles report they feel disheartened (16 per cent), self-conscious (12 per cent) and depressed (13 per cent).
eharmony’s experts believe singles are attempting “binge dating”, in the hope that by going on as many dates as possible, they’ll increase their chances of finding love.
