Ugly people deserve love too, suggests one Irish dating site.
TheUglyBugBall.com, or TUBB, a dating site for ugly people, launched in Ireland a year ago. It has been a huge success, with 9,000 subscribers in the Republic, reports the Herald.
"If you are one of the millions of people that don't like what they see in the mirror, then this is the place for you!" declares TUBB.
A spokesperson from the site said: "TheUglyBugBall.com originally launched in the UK [where it has 140,000 members] but we had such a huge interest in Ireland that we set a site up there a few weeks after the UK one.
"I think people like the site because they are slightly cynical of the way dating sites are portraying pretty people getting together.
"The reality is that most of the people aren't really ugly, but it would never have really taken off if we had called it 'Average Person Dating Co'."
Other popular, kitschy dating sites include LoveGAA.ie, for GAA fans, and Toyboy.com, for older women in search of younger men. However, the most popular site is the controversial site MaritalAffair.ie, which provides a platform for adultery.
