Looking for love - online dating in the UK

If you’re tired of your friends setting you up with blind dates, you prefer to avoid bars and clubs, and you’d like to find someone really special but are running out of ideas, don’t despair: many couples have found love on the Internet. Here’s how online dating in the UK works:

  • Each member of an Internet dating site has a profile that is available to users of the site. Any member who likes your profile can make contact through the website and you can correspond by email.
  • If you want to get to know each other better you can arrange to meet face to face, and from there on it’s up to you: if there’s a mutual attraction or common interests when you meet you may choose to continue dating, or if there’s no chemistry there it’s back to the dating site for another try.

Online dating has many advantages. There’s no set time and place – you can peruse and contact candidates at your own pace. It’s also discreet. Unlike blind dates, with online dating no one but you and you date needs to know that you’ve been dating until you’re ready to tell them the happy news.

Online dating in the UK and worldwide has a track record of successful matchmaking. It gives you the option to consider numerous candidates and contact only those who appear suitable. If you’re about to give up looking for love the conventional way, why not give online dating a chance?
