Our recent dating survey found that we Brits have a thing or two to learn from our foreign counterparts when it comes to dating. More than 40% of 2,000 UK singles quizzed believed that Britain is stuck in a dating rut and could do more to add a bit of excitement to their dating lives.

So, to celebrate 20 years of creating more dates and relationships than any other dating site, we are offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for one British single to travel and experience what dating is like in different countries around the world – and get paid for it!

This “Date Explorer” will jet off to an all-expenses-paid trip to gather expertise from five foreign cultures, bringing back with them the secrets that will make Britain a nation of better daters. They will be tasked simply with going on dates and gathering dating advice from five foreign cities known for their vibrant and varied dating scenes: New York, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Paris and Stockholm.

What we’re looking for…

The lucky candidate simply needs to be single, outgoing, have a passion for travel and an insatiable appetite for meeting new people.

During June and July of this year, the chosen candidate will spend six weeks on the road sampling the dating delights of some of the world’s greatest cities, before reporting back their findings upon their return to Britain. From salsa dancing to saunas, café culture to cocktail bars, the Date Explorer will find out what makes daters around the world tick and then bring their pearls of wisdom back to the UK.
