Dating websites are really helpful at procuring dates and there is literally a dating website to suit every one of us freaks, even if you only want to date an Amish farmer who loves Jazz and collecting mouse traps.
There are dating websites for people who want to get married, for people who just want to hook up and for people who want to know what newspaper you buy, what sort of organic cotton tote bag you use and how many moringa seeds you sprinkle on your pro-biotic yogurt in the morning.
New research by Rabo Direct reveals that a staggering 84% of Irish men are more than happy to pay for a first date.
