“It’s also great to see that age really is just a number for most of us. More confident, less inhibited and ready for real romance – now is the perfect time for single Brits to get out there and find someone with a shared passion for life and experiences.
“Who knows, your very own Kylie Minogue or George Clooney may be waiting for you!”
