First date paid by health insurance
Dutch health insurer VGZ has announced it will pay for the first date arranged through a dating site for singles.
Research has shown that people who are in a long-term relationship are happier - and therefore healthier - than singles. The action is also aimed at promoting its new supplementary policy for singles.
A spokesman says that for seven days those interested in the supplementary health insurance can contact the dating site via the VGZ website. There is no obligation to sign up for a policy.
