Bristlr: Online dating for beard lovers

A software developer has set up an online dating website for beard enthusiasts. John Kershaw from Manchester launched 'Bristlr' as a joke but in six weeks tens of thousands of people from all over the world signed up.

John said: "It's been a little overwhelming. I think half of people say 'this is not real' and the other half of people say 'this is amazing, I can't believe it's real'." Bristlr is described as 'connecting those with beards to those who want to stroke beards'.
