Portuguese online dating services

11 Apr

There are also websites known for extramarital relationships, with Ashley Madison being the market leader having 36 million members from 46 different countries.

Members’ accounts were recently hacked and personal details made public, which has already led to divorce proceedings and suicides.

I was surprised to find specific sites for different religions, ages, gender and even type of person, such as Muddy Matches for country folk and Vegetarian Daters.

In London there is a site for members to search by tube station for lunchtime dates!

One young girl in her late 20s told me she joined the site because by meeting up with other men for one-off dates she gets the excitement lacking in her current relationship.

People of all ages, backgrounds, religions and nationalities submit their photographs and personal details looking for friendship, no commitment dates or love.

This seems to be the reaction of many people and yet more and more single people do make friends or find love online.

The most dangerous person online is a predator who is out to humiliate and control women, and there is a rise in dating site scams where fake profiles con people to part with money.On a dating site you know people are available and this can save the awkwardness of first dates because when you meet up, you are already close.Social media has taken over people’s lives, so it is a natural extension to make new friends online.I recently discovered that some friends used dating sites.My initial reaction was “poor things they must be desperate” because I, naively, did not realise how popular internet dating is.
