“My daughters said online dating wasn’t good for me anymore, so I started looking for alternatives.” Aileen then came across Searchmate, a bespoke dating service which featured on the first series of Channel 4's The Undateables.

In an Elite Singles survey, our members were asked how they decide whether they want to go on a date with someone they’ve met online.
