If you’re not in a relationship it can be hard to find a decent girl or guy who isn’t a complete scumbag or just incredibly boring, but we want you to be able to have lots of sex and run through meadows and send each other cute emails and all of that other stuff that happens when you’re in a relationship. So we’re here to help you find that special someone online…
Now there’s still quite a big stigma attached to online dating (we blame slasher films), but if you’re based here in the UK it’s becoming more and more popular, with sites like Guardian Soulmates, Plenty of Fish and eHarmony really taking off and attracting all kinds of different people who are now all happily doing the sex and meadows and emails thing. Of course there’ll be crazies lurking on them like there is everywhere else, but these sites are considered some of the most popular and “successful” at sorting people out with dates, dinners and all that other jazz.
However, we decided to venture into the weird and wonderful world of online dating, just in case you happen to be looking for something a little more niche…[This was one of those lists we pulled together with the help of Twitter, so here's a little shout out to everyone who contributed, thanks guys @ananyah @teriTECHno, @rich_trenholm, @bluevespertine, @timhoang]

If you're a nice, single lady who also happens to be in prison
Yeah, the uh, the site name Women Behind Bars says it all really, this is a dating site for women in the slammer to meet nice guys on the outside who'll be their "penpal" until they're released. It's an interesting concept, I mean why waste time while you're on the inside when you could be lining up suitors left, right and centre for your release date? But still, we worry what kind of men and women are solely on the hunt for those doing time… www.womenbehindbars.com
