Are online dating services a waste of money

“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.

It claims to offer a “safer and more credible alternative” to dating websites.

In total, the site offered the man four suitable profiles “in his area” – none of which met his criteria.

One of them lived hundreds of miles away in Ireland and would be unreachable without an expensive ferry or plane journey.

It promises “affluent, educated men and women between the ages of 30 and 55, who are all looking for a long-term commitment.” It charges £180 a year for membership.

Another Telegraph Money reader, who does not wish to be named, turned to online dating after his relationship came to an end in February.

But when he paid the money and logged back on, he was crushed to discover that not a single one of the profiles he’d been shown could be contacted.
