Scouring the internet is undoubtedly the easiest and quickest way to bag yourself a date.
But with so many options out there, how do you choose the right site to find the long (or short)-term love you’re in search of? My Single Friend Dating profile: A gaggle of genuinely nice-sounding people mostly looking for ‘banter’ as well as The One. It’s not the biggest site out there, but there have been dozens of MSF weddings already…
USP: Friends write the daters’ profiles for them, so you get to hear all about your potential date from the people who love them most, plus your BFF can sell you so you don’t have to write a cringe-worthy profile about yourself. Guardian Soulmates Dating profile: Lefty creatives, mostly from Hackney. Anecdotal evidence provides that numerous couples and friends have met through the site.
e Harmony Dating profile: A real mixed bag, but the one thing most members seem to have in common is that they’re looking for long-term love and not quick hook-ups. USP: Based on actual scientific research, the site endeavours to match love-seekers with their perfect other half by asking them a series of questions about their lifestyle, beliefs and hobbies. URL: Putting a price on love: A minimum of £9.95 a month.

Plenty Of Fish Dating profile: Tens of thousands of singles, largely on the lower end of the pay scale. The top choice for gays and straights looking for casual hook-ups. URL: https://soulmates.uk/ Putting a price on love: A minimum of £16 a month.
Lovestruck Dating profile: The young and time-poor, mostly living in major cities. Not too terrible; the site has over 100,000 members in London and the home counties alone.
USP: Lovestruck’s service finds people who live, work or are near you using location technology that pinpoints tube stations and areas.
There’s also a verification policy, meaning you’re slightly less likely to encounter weirdos than you might be on other sites.
URL: Putting a price on love: A minimum of £16 a month.
Doing Something Dating profile: A creative crowd with hipsterish leanings. Possibly not as great as it is on other sites, given that this one has fewer members than most.
