Britain's first dating agency established for people who are "aesthetically challenged" celebrated an unlikely milestone after it produced its first engagement between its members.Tom Clifford and Janine Walker, who say they have “great personalities”, decided to get married following a whirlwind online romance.Now when this person doesn't turn out to be the love of your life, then something's obviously wrong with him. So strong that people simply won't look at others outside of a specific category, such as religion. Or maybe you're a young woman looking to date someone that looks like her dad.
Now there’s still quite a big stigma attached to online dating (we blame slasher films), but if you’re based here in the UK it’s becoming more and more popular, with sites like Guardian Soulmates, Plenty of Fish and e Harmony really taking off and attracting all kinds of different people who are now all happily doing the sex and meadows and emails thing.
Of course there’ll be crazies lurking on them like there is everywhere else, but these sites are considered some of the most popular and “successful” at sorting people out with dates, dinners and all that other jazz.

Beautiful People, which as its name clearly states, is a dating site devoted exclusively to good looking people.The company's latest venture is to create a "virtual sperm and egg bank" (in reality a fertility introduction service) stocked with donors from the beauty gene pool.There used to be an old saying, "You won't meet anyone if you don't go out." Not true anymore. I have seen this behavior more so in women, than in men.Online dating allows us to meet MORE people by being a recluse. When I get into conversations with women about dating, they always paint a picture of who their ideal mate is.Not only will you see more people, you can find exactly the person you want, or so we've been led to believe. I remember being in a car with three women who each went through a laundry list of criteria for their perfect mate.
