I admit, I was a little scared at the thought of signing up for a full membership on Lovestruck.com. Although I’d had profile on there since last year, I hadn’t bothered using it, mainly because I tend to get a bit put off by sites that charge (yup, what can I say, I’m a lil’ bit of a cheapskate) but also because after a brief look, I didn’t seen anyone who immediately jumped out at me.
There was something I liked about Lovestruck though, I like their ‘Dating Tip Of The Day’ tweets and I love their cheeky chatty advertising campaigns all over the London underground. Because there was something about their tone of voice that I related to, I signed up to receive e-newsletters and gradually let myself be persuaded into trying out one of their low-key singles events, the Laissez Faire back in January. The event itself was fun, and really quite a genius idea, but it was ruined by the fact that the only guy I exchanged numbers with became the nearest thing I’ve ever had to a stalker – anyone remember Lovestruck Guy aka Bug a Boo?
