Looking for love in London?
It might sound a little like stalking but hey, times are hard. Anything goes, right? Apparently, Tubecupid offers those travelling around on London's underground system the chance to contact that pretty young thing who was peeking at you from behind her book and who you're sure you'll never see again.
By logging on, you can enter the date you were on the tube, the time, line and direction of travel, as well as a few more personal details and this information is then matched with the closest the service can find in its database and you'll be able to check whether this is indeed the person you spotted.
Co-founder Alp Ayhan said: "We had a vision to build a permanent and secure solution to the tube crush problem and we've done it ... Free London newspapers are full of columns where people are desperate to find the person they had a quick conversation with, locked their eyes on or just shared a smile with."
And the best part is that it's available for anyone! All you need to start the hunt for your soul mate is an email address and if you're concerned about being contacted by unsavoury characters, don't worry. Everything remains private and confidential and accounts can't be viewed unless you allow it.
