The best dating sites and apps if you’re looking for love

Whether you’re looking to dip your toe in the dating pool or are on the hunt for lasting love, these are the best dating sites to try

It’s summertime and, as the sun comes out and the flowers bloom, our thoughts turn naturally to romance. An online dating service is a good place to start.

Online dating and dating apps are now one of the most popular ways to meet a new partner and there are more than 1,400 sites in the UK alone, catering for people from all walks of life and interests.

Now is the perfect time to log on. One dating site, Zoosk, found that mentioning sunny words like “beach” and “picnic” in a message boosted responses significantly. It stands to reason. Right now singles are going out more and feeling more confident with the dopamine boost that sunshine brings.

The good news is, the range of dating sites has never been bigger. Whether you’re mad about dogs, passionate about green issues or a connoisseur of fine wines, you may just be a few clicks away from someone who shares your interests.
