Internet dating has come a long way since Kindred Spirits started online in 2005.
So what makes them choose to date through the Telegraph rather than use one of the other 1,400 sites operating in the UK?
Jasmine Wiltshire, Telegraph Dating’s development manager, believes the main attraction is trust.

Funoutdoors is actually Andy Elwood, an ultra-fit 40-year-old divorcee who works as a search and rescue winchman in the Shetland Isles.
There aren’t many other people who would relish the thought of running off the top of a mountain, so thanks for giving us the means to find each other.” “Thank you, thank you, thank you! Tigger turns out to be Virginia Mills, a sporty 37-year-old equity derivatives analyst from London who really does go by the name of Tigger.
The internet is a good place to start.’” If you want proof that internet dating can work, you have only to take a look at the “success story” section on the Telegraph Dating site to find positive reports from dozens of satisfied users.
A woman calling herself Tigger writes: “I found the perfect man for me at the other end of the country. We have travelled around the world and have many more adventures to come.
When once it was considered to be the preserve of the desperate, the weird or the unfaithful, it is now a must-try for any single looking for a date.
