Singles 'more likely' to find love online

  • Singles 'more likely' to find love online

    If you're looking for love, the best place to search is now officially online, according to new research.

    Internet dating has become such a huge global phenomenon that singles now actually stand a better chance of picking up a date online than they would in a traditional setting such as a club or bar.

    A poll of 10,000 American married couples in 2006/2007 found that 19 per cent met online, while just 17 per cent got together at work and 17 per cent paired up through pals.

    Online dating appears to be particularly effective if you are over 45, although it is certainly working wonders for those in their 20s and 30s too.

    The Harris Interactive online survey found that a massive 31 per cent of married couples aged 45 to 54 met online, against 18 per cent of 20 to 44-year-olds.

    Buckwalter of online matchmaker eHarmony, California, who commissioned the research, said: "Wanting to get married and not going online will soon be seen as equivalent to trying to find an address by driving around randomly - rather than using a map."

    To navigate your way to true romance, search for your perfect date!
