Soulmates: True stories from the world of online dating is a fascinating, eye-opening and often riotously funny look at modern Britain through the lens of the oddest form of socialising yet invented - internet dating. Online dating has taken the nation by storm - 7.8 million Brits, that's half the population of British singletons, tried it out last year.

The book features a unique collection of over a hundred true stories from the frontline of online dating, recounted by some of the brilliant and brainy, imaginative and inspiring people who use leading British dating websites. Cultural history meets personal testimony as Sonali Fernando takes the temperature of modern British relationships. Embracing stories told by online daters aged between 21 and 83 she freewheels through themes ranging from dating disasters to long-distance love affairs, cybercourtship to online lies. Here, finally, is a thinking person's guide to online dating that traces the cultural context of this intimate form of social networking and explores the colossal impact of the internet on our personal lives. Life-affirming, poignant and funny,Soulmates offers an utterly fresh and original view of contemporary Britain.
