Press Release - 09 February 2005

Finding love on the Internet

How successful is it, and why men are more committed than women?
When? Wednesday 9 February 2005, 10.30 - 11.30
Where? Science Media Centre, 21 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4BS

With VALENTINE'S DAY near, a leading psychologist from the University of Bath will make public his latest research on finding love through internet dating agencies.

Dr Jeff Gavin found that internet dating was a very successful way of finding a partner, and that men were more committed to relationships begun online, and more dependent on their partners, than were women.

Dr Gavin will give more details of his research at a press conference on Wednesday 9 February 2005 at the Science Media Centre at 21 Albemarle Street, London.

He will give his findings on the best forms of communication to deepen the online relationship and can summarise other research in this area.
