Sarah Beeny wants to encourage people to get out there and find love this week as more people than ever are predicted to be logging in to find their perfect partner.

But the mum-of-four doesn't believe people can be matched using statistics, and has recently been involved in a tongue-in-cheek protest promoting "dates not data"."People aren't compatible because they both like yellow socks and both drink lattes instead of cappuccinos," says Sarah.

You'll be sure to bag yourself a Valentine's date in time, if not more than one! Why not arrange a group date for a couple of people? Don't heap pressure on yourself to have the ultimate romantic night.

Valentine's is all about having fun so go out and do something different.5.

She also co-founded the website Tepilo, which helps users to buy, sell or let their properties with no charges or commission.

*My Single Friend is the tenth-most popular subscription-based internet dating site in the UK and has about 20,000 members.

*The odds of finding love online seem better for men, at least in London and Manchester.

In London, there are 5,780 straight women looking for men aged between 30 and 40, but only 3,800 men seeking women in the same age range.

It is on track to make underlying profits of about £1.5m this year.

At least one private equity firm has bid for My Single Friend, but the main interest is from rival internet dating players.

First-round bids of between £10m and £15m were submitted earlier this month, primarily by rival online dating businesses, but some private equity firms are also interested.

BDO declined to comment, while My Single Friend and Telecom Express did not return calls.

*Others featuring in Hitwise's top 10 include Gaydar and Sex in the UK.
