DIY dating: finding love independently from online dating sites

Alright, we’ve all get the message that we’re going through some kind of online dating bonanza, and that the web might even be helping couples to stay together.

But it looks like many savvy internet users are taking matters into their own hands and finding their own ways, outside of conventional dating sites, to find their perfect match.

A study by the Oxford Internet Institute shows that only half of UK couples who met after 1997  did so via dedicated online dating sites. The other half met their partners through social networking sites, gaming sites and special interest chat rooms, instant messaging and other online services.

So if the price tags and complicated small print of online dating giants are putting you off finding love on the web, get off the beaten track and find yourself some love somewhere else in the great sea of the internet.

This is for real
