OKCupid's own research has also revealed, again not surprisingly, that even the most complex algorythm in the world is no competition for an attractive photograph.

And, if you can't be bothered with long surveys and algorythms, you can always take the bull by the horns and opt for one of the apps that make selecting a date as easy as ordering a pizza. Criticised by many as being shallow and looks-biased, these apps are undoubtedly more suited to finding fleeting liasons rather than anything long-term.

Although you could strike lucky in the love stakes, it's worth remembering that many of the people you meet up with are definitely not looking for a soulmate.

King of the dating apps is the love-it or hate-it Tinder which allows you to search people in your local area using your profile data from Facebook.

Tinder matches potential candidates based on where you are, number of mutual friends and common interests.

You simply browse through pictures, swipe right to like or left to pass.

Subscribers tend to be a little older and the focus is very much on finding a long-term partner. OKCupid is a free online dating service that uses an algorythm-based matching system.

The user answers a series of questions and also rates how important each question is to them.

So, what's a single person to do once being single has lost its shine?

And yet, as singleton Rachel from the US says, "It's slim pickings out there.

The guys I meet who I click with and who have potential seem to always just be in town for the weekend.

According to studies by Antonio López Gay of the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona, the number of singles in the city is on the rise: while 80 percent of people that leave the city to settle down elsewhere live with their partner, the same is true for only 50 percent of those coming to the city.
