The Consumer guide to finding love

The Consumer guide to finding love

It had to happen. Consumer has ventured into the realm of romance. They have sent forth four intrepid white-coated testers to try out internet dating, speed dating and a matchmaking agency.

“We all went out there looking for a good time, and maybe a soul mate” says Lois* one of the Consumer testers. “We had fun – but did find the white coat and gloves turned off some of our dates.”

The current dating poll on consumer.org.nz shows that the traditional avenues of meeting a partner still dominate, with almost a quarter of respondents meeting their partner through friends and family, followed closely by meeting at a party, bar or social occasion (20%). Internet dating and dating agencies make up just 7% of responses in the poll so far.Error! Hyperlink reference not valid.
