The economic crisis and online dating

This could come as a surprise to some, but according to the Glasgow newspaper Sunday Mail online dating in Britain is worth £76million. That’s not all! In just four years this number could grow to £135million as single people apparently have given up hope of finding a date by more traditional means.

What does all this mean? Well, to cut a long story short, this could mean there’s a huge job market waiting to be filled with specialists from different careers that could offer something to online datng. Like I said in my last post, people are really willing to pay good money to find a date, therefore it should not be surprising how much money could be invested in this business.

And if you think about it, isn’t that how Sarah Beeny started her little website of My Single Friend? Just look at it now – from being a matchmaker amongst her friends she came to own a very successful online dating site with thousands of users. The same applies to the Love and Friends website and to a handful of others!

So, you know – there’s a way how to boost the economy right now, right here. Sign up to a dating site! Who knows, you might even end up happily ever after…
