"Guys don't know how to ask, it's astounding really how many people need help and we think we can do that in an automated way." 'Takes pressure off' British dating app Loveflutter plans to use AI to analyse chats between its users to determine their compatibility and suggest when they should meet."We will ping a message saying 'You are getting along really well, why don't you go on your first date'," said Loveflutter co-founder Daigo Smith.

Loveflutter already suggests places to go on a first date that are equidistant from both people's homes using information from Foursquare, an app that helps smartphone users find nearby restaurants, bars and clubs.

"It kind of takes the pressure off organising that first date," said Smith.

After the date, the app checks in with both people to see how it went and recommend whether they should continue to see each other or keep looking.

Teman hopes to make it available across the United States early next year.

The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.

Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.

"It will say things like 'based on her personality inclination she is a traditional person, I would recommend dinner and a walk'," said Kevin Teman, the app's developer.

The app also reminds you to ask questions "about the things that are important to you" during the date, he added.

To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.

Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.

Among the doubters at the Web Summit was UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who said he was "a little bit sceptical" it could help "people chose their soul mates".
