e Harmony is another massive player, with 3 million users signed up.But size isn’t everything – as anyone who has just wrapped up a three-hour swiping session on Tinder will attest.You can’t browse pictures or profiles – you wait to be matched by the mystery algorithm after answering the 400 questions – then you are guided through a contact process.Some may think it lacks the spontaneity of other dating sites – and you certainly can’t use it to get a quick date for the weekend.Yet many friends of mine who had previously ruled out anyone with children on a dating site are now happily dating (or married to) single parents they met in real life.With judgemental tick-boxes they would have filtered out the very person they are in love with now.Some find this a barrier to join, fans say it weeds out the casual chancer from those truly looking for love – and means you don’t have to wait to broach tricky topics.Pricier – it’s £44.95 for a month, but that drops to £12.95 per month if you sign up for a year.

It’s a softly, softly approach – excellent for those new to internet dating or nervous about entering the melee, or using a fast-food dating app like Tinder.Cons: The lengthy survey you must complete before you sign up.It is 100s of questions long and asks many probing questions about religion and moral views.There are no compatibility filters, so once you’ve filtered by the basics, there’s no way of narrowing it down.However, perhaps controversially, arguably this is more of a pro than a con – as the saying goes, opposites attract!

Another friend is about to marry the short, bald banker with absolutely no ‘online dating’ message-type chat she met at a party.
