African girls 'take to online dating'
The single life is proving too lonely for many a Kenyan girl as more and more flock to internet dating sites to bag themselves a partner.
Industrialisation and urbanisation in the east African country means that girls don't have as much time as they once had to spend socialising and meeting new guys.
A number of new online dating sites have opened in the country and have been growing in popularity.
One recent newcomer to the online dating scene said she turned to the web to find her Adonis.
Claire, a 32-year-old from Nairobi, told the BBC website: "I know plenty of people who are now trying this out and I thought: 'This year I'm going to try it. Internet dating here I come."
Like many girls fed up with the dating scene, Claire had tried everything before she began to chat online.
"To be honest, funerals and weddings have been the only way to meet people. Clubbing doesn't work."
With millions of young singletons online to choose from, it's no surprise that more and more girls are turning to the internet to find dates. Complete this form to search for your perfect guy or girl!
