As a matchmaker I get asked this question a lot. It is a topic that I researched thoroughly before deciding to launch Match Made in Scotland. As someone who found their partner on a dating site 6 years ago I loath to say that it does not work however I have many people that come to me for my services and they would beg to differ. I think the real question is ‘Can online dating work?’ If you were to ask me this question I wouldn’t hesitate to say yes, as I know many people (myself included albeit 6 years ago) who have found their partners online. However, if you were to ask me “Does online dating work?” I would be reticent to say the same.
