"We're scooping up these people and offering them a glimmer of hope," he said, "in many cases their first and only opportunity of meeting a member of the opposite sex." I wouldn't take him too seriously, though.
The tone on The Ugly Bug Ball is definitely flippant and probably half-joking.
Beautiful probably attracted more attention for dropping people who gained weight over the holidays and launching a virtual sperm bank than it ever did for its beautiful-people-only dating service.
Now a concerned entrepreneur opened his wallet to disagreeable-looking people with a dating site for the "aesthetically challenged." Howard James, founder of The Ugly Bug Ball, says he's providing dowdy British singles with a legitimate service.
As a part of our dating service members are offered professional and independent relationships coaching and a pro-active headhunting service to search for the right partner beyond our extensive client base when necessary.
Our matchmakers and head-hunters working with this brand are all highly experienced professionals.
Some offer more sophisticated matching than others, based on psychometric techniques often used in recruitment and off-line agencies.
These are more likely to be off-line agencies who take the time and effort to interview every client .
First piece of advice: if it's free, it's generally free for a reason!
Clients range in age from around 30 to those that are enjoying active retirement years.
The average age of clients within this brand is around forty nine and the membership is drawn from locations right across the UK.
