There are thousands of UK online dating sites and UK chat rooms that attract a wide variety of singles looking for a range of things, whether it’s simply a casual fling, someone to chat to on a rainy day, or something more long-term and serious.
Online dating in the UK has become a very common thing to do. Think about it; British citizens tend to have extremely busy lives, especially in cities such as London, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester and more. The typical British working day in places like these is as follows: Face the hustle & bustle of public transportation, or sit in traffic for what seems like hours just to arrive at a hot, stuffy and uninspiring office, where you’ll spend the rest of your working day. When you’re finished, you’ll have to put up with the crowds all over again just to get back home. The truth is, many Brits simply don’t have the time to stand at a bar all night, hoping and praying that someone will talk to them. Many of us don’t have time to date, don’t have time to worry about what to wear to the second date when we’ve already got work to think about. It’s sad, but it’s true for so many people.
This is where online dating comes in. It’s easy, fast and hassle-free, and if you’re not looking for a serious relationship, that’s totally fine! Many attractive singles across the UK are after something casual, and absolutely nothing more than that. Online dating is a fantastic way for those with busy lives to meet and get to know people with the same interests and desires, without it getting in the way of their busy schedules.
Online dating has become so popular in the UK over the years. So many Brits are signing up that online dating is now considered to be part of the UK’s economy! This just goes to show how many people in the UK think highly of online dating, and enjoy using the services that are readily available to them. Here are a couple of testimonials on why the Brits love online dating, and examples of casual dating in the UK.
Danielle, 28, Manchester
“I’m born and bred in the UK, and always had a good education. I did my A-Levels, went to University, and eventually got a good job working for a PR company in Manchester. The hours are long, the commute is stressful and it got to the point where I just didn’t have the time or energy to go out on a Saturday night to try and meet guys. I signed up to a dating website, and couldn’t believe how many attractive men wanted to talk to me. It’s not that I really wanted to meet them, I didn’t have the time – but the attention I got made me feel amazing. It boosted my confidence and gave me the energy to go out and meet them. For anyone with a busy & hectic life like me, I would absolutely reccommend trying online dating. It’s the best thing I ever did.”
Susan, 47, Kent
“I’ve been a single mother for most of my life, and raised 3 children by myself. Two of them are still at home now, meaning I still have to cook, take care of the house, do washing, etc! Typical mother duties, really! So, a lot of the time, I don’t really have the time to go out and meet men. Honestly, I’m not sure where to go, any more! The day I signed up to online dating was a good day, indeed. I’ve met up with loads of single men who are my age and live in my area. I’ve made some really great friends and had lots of fun. It made me realise that, just because I’m in my forties and have children, it doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy myself sexually. I feel liberated, empowered and great about my body. I’ve even got myself a lovely boyfriend, too!”
