"Richard was the third person I met through My Single Friend. "You can meet people but the fact you have to drive puts pressure on any date.
"In London, it's so stressful; trains get delayed and if you drive, you can't park. Driving to parties in the country became one of my best pulling techniques; everyone wants a lift home."
