Italia chat dating site

If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.

In the last few years, cities such as New York and London have witnessed a boom in internet dating.

But for some reason, Italy just hadn’t warmed to the idea in the same way.

It was this discrepancy that fascinated 30-year-old London-based Italian web designer Luca Vavassori - so he started studying how his male and female friends used dating sites.

“I soon realized how irritating they can be for a woman using these kind of services,” Vavassori tells The Local.

“After publishing their profile, women are literally inundated with dozens of messages from male users, half of which are of a sexual nature.” It was with this in mind that Milan-born Vavassori started Girl Shop, a free dating website that’s been active since February and encourages women to combine their love of shopping with dating.

The concept is simple: female users of the site are invited to go shopping for men.

Once they’ve found one they like, they add him to a virtual supermarket trolley.

But there’s a twist: men – who account for around 60 percent of the site's users – must wait for a woman to contact them first.

The unlucky ones have to suffer in silence on the supermarket shelf. For a start, not just any old Italian Average Joe (or Giovanni) can sign up.

In their applications to join, men must fill in categories on their profile that include: “Manufacturing defects”, “User instructions” and “Features”.

Then they must categorize themselves according to type, with choices that include “L’informatico” (computer geek),“Palestrato” (pumped), “Hipster” and “Tamarro” (tough guy).
