I can’t explain the anger I felt — it was like I’d been robbed.Here, six brave chaps reveal the horrors they experienced when dipping a toe in the murky waters of online dating.She greeted me with a cigarette in one hand, mop in the other, no make-up, birds’ nest hair and wearing an old brown T-shirt and trousers.
