The internet, for all its naysayers and prophets of doom, has transformed the way people work and communicate. It has turned entertainment, retail and health industries from boom to bust and back again. But its biggest and most profound effect has been on the single (sic) biggest decision that most people will ever make—choosing that someone special.

Being single just means you haven’t found the right person yet. That’s all! Remember, its Disney’s fault that girls want the perfect guy and its Playboy’s fault that guys want the perfect girl!

In the 90’s/Noughties it may have been…………….. The pub, niteclub, a match, a dinner party, your brother’s girlfriend’s sister, Copper Faced Jacks, Bad Bobs or Howl at the Moon? In the 70’s/80’s it could have been Blinkers, Club 92, Zhivago’s or Silks..or the rugby club, Perhaps it was the Dandelion market or a fondue party?
