It's no secret that marriage traditions are changing.People are getting married later in life, spending more money on weddings, and, according to a new study, they're spending more time getting to know each other before tying the knot.The old-fashioned ways of dating - trying to catch the eye of someone in a cafe or scouting for potential partners in a bar - can be fun.

Here at e Harmony we believe there's a better approach to online dating than being bombarded with profiles and pictures.

We think the dates our members go on should be amazing, memorable occasions.

Whether you're looking to meet single Muslims, interested in Polish dating or want to try mature dating, we have members right across the UK.

The perfect match for you could be living round the corner - you just haven't had the chance to meet them yet.

Today's bride and groom are eight years older than the average couple who got married in 1971.

Just 46 years ago, brides were around 22.6 years old, and now they're 30.8.

It would be great if there were one definitive guide to dating.

Unfortunately, we can't hand you a manual - but we do have the next best thing.

"Marriages are becoming stronger than ever, relationships happier and more committed than ever, and couples more independent and consensual in their decisions than ever," Bridebook founder Hamish Shephard said.

Those butterflies of excited joy as you open the latest message from your new match, your first glimpse as you turn up for a date, a shared joke that only the two of you understand; these moments begin with e Harmony.

Online dating has helped introduce thousands of compatible singles.
