Online, the old reliable Plenty of Fish remains ever-popular in the Irish dating world.
So what are the options for Irish people looking to find someone to love, date, or even just to distract them from the fact that it’s still winter?
The tactic has paid off over the years — the site has a huge number of Irish users (a random search for 29-year-old women within ten miles of Wexford throws up 152 accounts, for instance — not entirely scientific, but it certainly indicates the popularity of the service).
Several single people who spoke to for this piece said they had also turned to another free site recently — Ok Cupid, citing a more up-to-date design as one of the main reasons.
That’s because they sometimes decide that what they’re doing is wrong.
This won’t become a problem if you’re signed up for 2-3 dating sites.
