The growth for the past five years has been 5% compound annual growth rate, and despite the fact that some people are saying the industry is growing down, it's actually expected to grow by $100 million per year for the next five years. Also, China is estimated to be worth $1.6 billion by the end of this year.

On the contrary, some of the brands had even witnessed an increase in members as a result of the recession – it’s cheaper to search for love from your laptop at home than it is spending a night in bars and clubs.

One in 10 American adults spends more than an hour a day on a dating app, according to Nielsen data. I think any time you have this broad stroke interest in a category, naturally, investors are curious as to what's going on. There doesn't seem to be much analyst opinion on the industry so far, but we'll go in to talk about that later, because I think it's because people haven't been able to play the industry so well.

So before we dive into one of the big companies involved in the space, do you want to paint a picture in terms of some industry numbers for the average users, and the size of this market? It's actually valued at about .2 billion in revenue per year.

White labeling can erode many of those problems, although some believe following that path can make your brand feel “soulless”.

Matt Connolly has one of the newest sites on the market – launched on 26 October, his my Lovely Parent site - which encourages children of singles in their 50s and over to recommend their parents for dates - uses a platform he created from scratch.

“I’ve adapted my focus to accruing profit in more affluent dating markets outside the UK, like Australia for instance.

As a result, the last 12 months have been very successful, seeing increases in revenue of over 300%.” Many use sites like White Label to provide a generic software platform to take care of payment processing and customer support, freeing up time to focus on driving traffic to websites.

For this feature, we interviewed more than a dozen dating websites, representing more than five million members (although it should be noted that most people using a dating website will set up a profile with more than one company).

Most generated revenue through a subscription model – typically members will sign up for free, but be charged if they would like to connect to someone’s profile.

Once seen as a rather nerdy, even desperate way to meet a potential partner (or, let’s face it, a less than wholesome means of finding a sexual encounter) – the industry has now become a much more acceptable way of finding love.

Globally, one in five relationships now starts online and the media is full of stories describing happy marriages which started with the click of a mouse.

It’s also interesting to note that the split of male to female members on most of the sites is around the mark, and the number of older daters (those from 50 years of age and up) has become a real growth market.
