Dating Agency

Helen Morrison is said to have placed the first female Lonely Hearts advert in 1727, in the Manchester Weekly Journal.The Lord Mayor sent the lonely spinster to an asylum for a month, believing she was mad.

The personal classified advertising business started on February 23, 1886 in the UK when The Times first allowed matchmakers to advertise lonely spinsters.

106-year-old English lady Mrs Betsy Pennick placed an advert in the Dundee Courier in 1924 looking for ‘a husband with a good financial position’. When the ad came to light in 2015, one news website described her as the ‘world’s first and oldest “cougar.”

A researcher in Antarctica got a date via Tinder with a woman who was at a field camp 45 minutes away.

The highest traffic time on both Tinder and OKCupid is 9:00 p.m.

In America, 35% of people who use personal ads for dating are already married!
