It is fairly easy to meet women offline (e.g. go to a party and chat around, I have no problem getting dates that way and I assume most other people would have no problem either), but I want someone who can speak Italian (or Spanish or French or Portuguese), who does not smoke, is in the relevant age range, and (obviously) whom I like.
For whatever reason, it doesn't seem to be that easy to find that sort of woman in the wild. I know there must be millions of them in London, where are they hiding ? :-)
So I'm trying online dating - hopefully the search facilities will help!
