Clare Wood was killed by a man she met online. A tragic case, no doubts about it. Now Clare’s father and Hazel Blears MP are working to bring in a law that would make it possible for women to learn about their new partner’s history of domestic / relationship abuse. This is one of those […]
A recent survey by Age UK has shown how popular Internet usage has become for people in their 50s and older. Around 43% of the UK’s 55-74 year olds use the Internet on a regular basis. Although this rate is not the highest in Europe, it’s higher than the rate in Germany (33%) and France […]
I’ve recently started doing some freelance writing for Parship.co.uk , having been asked by them to provide content for their blog. You can read my dating advice and send your online dating questions to be answered by me at the Parship blog. I’m usually very fussy about who I do this sort of work for, […]
The fact that Parship, the dating site with the most comprehensive compatibility test, has a gay / lesbian offshoot may come as a surprise to you, especially if you live outside of the UK. Well, now their gay dating site, gay-parship.com has gone international and is available in 9 (count them) different languages. Check it […]
After posting about common online dating scams, this blog has become a bit of a hub of activity when it comes to exposing scammers. The blog posts regarding this issue have become very busy with comments and I think they are becoming difficult to read. Because of this, I have started a basic forum where […]
Well, if you tuned in to BBC Radio Oxford this morning you could have heard me speak about the merits of online dating on Louisa Hannan’s show. I should have perhaps posted this before the event, but in the (unlikely) case you missed it and are interested in hearing me talk about the disappearing stigma, […]
Niche dating sites are all the rage nowadays, aimed at people who value certain aspects of their lives and want to start off their search for love by looking for people who share their interests and hobbies.
Now there is a site dedicated to fans of Apple, the company and its products. The new site, Cupidtino requires all its users to be owners of an Apple device and to be enamoured with it.
US cheaters’ dating website, Ashley Madison is apparently going to expand to the UK market. I can’t wait to see the response their incredibly annoying ads will get in the UK. Apparently UK cheaters looking to have affairs can already register on the site, but there hasn’t been any marketing done yet in the UK. […]
The Australian consumer watchdog reports a rise of 30% in online dating related scams. Could it be because people in Australia are becoming more exposed to online dating and are throwing caution to the wind a little bit too much? With online dating becoming more and more mainstream, there should be more information available about […]
The next episode of House will see the team going speed dating, with apparently hilarious results. It’s always good to see trends becoming mainstream enough to be featured on top TV shows, isn’t it? You can watch the trailer for the episode here If you’re thinking of taking the plunge yourself, you can take a […]
A very close friend of mine has been wrongfully arrested and detained in Dubai since the 26th of January. So far, without being officially charged. 31-year-old Cat Le-Huy, Head of Technology at Endemol UK, was detained and arrested during a tourist visit to Dubai for carrying melatonin, an over-the-counter jet lag aid. Though once in […]
Super-short notice but I will be on BBC World News’ “The world today” at about 7pm UK time, which is in about half an hour or so. I will be commenting on this news story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/6943616.stm No tags for this post.

I have decided to take a break from my 7-day weeks over the last few weeks and have actually been getting out of London a bit and trying to enjoy “summer”. This weekend I will be out of town and away from phones/emails until Monday at the very earliest. No tags for this post.
My interview has finally been rescheduled. I will be on BBC Radio Humberside tomorrow at 9.40am UK time. Am still unclear as to exactly what they want to talk about, but I am guessing it’s something to do with online dating and the book 🙂 No tags for this post.
I was on U105 in Belfast this Tuesday on the lunchtime show, which was cool. My mom listened in from Israel via their website and I was being interviewed from my bedroom in London (it’s the most quiet room in the house). I felt very 21st century. We talked about the book, online dating safety, […]
It’s actually more exciting than I thought it would be. It’s an actual book, with my name on it 🙂 I guess you don’t quite realise it’s real until you are holding the actual product in your hand. No tags for this post.
Copies should be with the retailers within a week or so. The Amazon buying links on the right should actually work now 🙂 I am back from holiday and am trying to sort out things such as press releases and publicity. Hopefully, things are about to get busy! No tags for this post.
After 2 years and a few months, I am leaving Allegran. Things have been getting too busy and I forsee a couple of busy months ahead where I will need to concentrate on some serious self-promotion. After that, I will most likely be looking for part time/freelance work so that I can continue working on […]
I am introducing a news section so I can advertise things to do with the book. Today’s exciting news is that I’ve added Amazon sales links to the site. The book is available for pre-order from Amazon (and a few other places) already. I get more money per sale if people click on to Amazon […]
