Manchester, United Kingdom, June 29, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Britons are looking for love on the internet, due to the recent credit crunch staying-in has become the new going out.
The web romance market grew by 20% in the last year and is now worth £80m, Mintel researchers found. They predict it could be worth nearly £150m by 2014. "During recession people spend more time at home rather than spending money going to bars and restaurants and going online is seen as an effective way to meet new people," analyst Matt King explained. "Difficult times are forcing people to re-evaluate what is most important in their lives and therefore are increasingly likely to look for love."
Amber Ward uses the website Single Hot & Loaded to meet new people and believes it is finally socially acceptable. "Pretty much every friend I have is internet dating now," she told Single Hot & Loaded's marketing team. "People can't afford to go out in Soho drinking until 4am. It's a cheaper way to meet potential dates. "You can get to know them on the internet before you take a risk and spend money on a date."
Mintel estimate approximately 5.2 million people in the UK use the internet for dating.
