With the rise of social networks and a trend to revealing more than we should about ourselves online, the stigma that used to be attached to online dating websites is fading fast.In fact, it’s now just as common for singletons to log on to find a partner as it is for them to go to the pub and sheepishly eye someone up in the corner.

When it comes to dating sites, though, it’s not as much about love at first sight but love at first insight – and one website which reckons it has got this nailed is eHarmony.
Founded in 2000 in the US by a marriage councillor who decided to turn his decades of experience with warring couples into a website, eHarmony is well known for its rather laborious sign up process.This equates to around 250 questions a member needs to answer before they even get a sniff of a date.

1. Yoga is the most popular exercise among members
2. Foodies have more of a chance of finding love
3. Men prefer woman who don’t fritter money
