An influx of new dating apps in the past decade has completely transformed the way we meet partners.

Although this new digital age of dating has revolutionised romance, it has also changed the rules entirely. 

According tor relationship expert and psychologist, Jacqui Manning, there can be many pitfalls for those looking for love.

'Modern daters are already out of their comfort zone, so with the relatively recent proliferation of superficial swipe apps that encourage matches based solely on looks and instant gratification, we're also seeing an increase in sometimes manipulative or inappropriate dating behaviour such as ''ghosting'' or ''benching'' that leave many pure-of-heart singles feeling exposed and unsure of how to deal with the modern world of romance,' she said.

Research from eharmony found that a third of singles had their relationship end by 'ghosting' (the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication).

While a 25 per cent of singles report having been in a relationship that involved 'Negging' - emotional manipulation whereby a person makes a deliberate backhanded compliment or otherwise flirtatious remark to another person to undermine their confidence.

Other singles have experienced 'benching' when someone is dating more than one person at a time or a 'slow fade' where their date gradually backs away from a potential relationship, but doesn't cut all ties immediately.

'Make sure when you're entering or re-entering the dating scene that you relax and remind yourself of all your wonderful qualities,' she said.

'Just because your last relationship didn't work out doesn't mean your next one will be the same.

She also warned against relying on technology too much and advised to use apps that helped identify your compatibility. 

'If you're serious about finding happy, lasting love, I would always recommend avoiding dating apps or sites that match you with singles based on superficial qualities like hobbies or location.'

Zombie-ing: This is when someone has already ghosted his or her way out of a relationship - but then tries to come back.
