Previous research has shown that couples who get to know each other via emails are more likely to see each other again after their first date.

Two years ago, a study by Bath University revealed that those who met on dating websites were 94 per cent more likely to see each other after their first meeting than other couples.

'Martina contacted me shortly after she joined the site.

We chatted online for eight weeks before finally meeting up in Berlin, where Martina was living, in May 2007.‘It felt right between us from the start and in October 2007, I proposed at home in Yorkshire.

Some 67 per cent of men but just 57 per cent of women said they had experienced consummate love with an online partner.
