"It's just a word and I don't think my relationship with my husband is like anyone else's so I wouldn't want to use the same word that everyone uses."She admits that she does 'like' her husband a lot but doesn't like the cliches behind the common term of affection.
"I don't like the word 'love' because it has all sorts of connotations of what Hallmark cards say you should do and I don't think love is predictable," she added."It doesn't necessarily happen on the 14th of February and it doesn't come from a card shop and have sparkly red hearts on it - it's just making somebody know that you care about them." Despite her lack of enthusiasm for the three little words most people long to hear, it seems she is pretty made up with husband Graham.
"If you can be with someone who makes you laugh, they're your best friend and you fancy them, then I'm not sure you're ever going to meet someone who has that combination in one pot ever again,' she said."To me he ticks every box I could possibly imagine so I thought I better marry him quickly before someone else stole him."When it comes to 'love' the founder of internet dating site believes there is no set recipe for matchmaking, and recently took part in a tongue-in-cheek 'protest' to promote 'dates not data'.
The demonstration, which involved Sarah and an army of online daters marching over Westminster Bridge armed with anti 'data-ing' placards, highlighted the fact that people are not algorithms that can be matched by computers.
The online dating site allows people's friends to write them a profile and recommend people they think would be a good match for them.
"I think the way you are with your friends says a lot about a person and that's why is works," says Sarah.
You’ve been with Graham (Sarah’s business partner) for nearly 24 years and married for 11. We’ve journeyed along well through life and we’ve been in business together for years.
The classic line "You dare to challenge the might of the Beeny", was said by Beeny to the evil nemesis.
We love your property shows but in-between renovating houses and filming, do you ever get to see your husband Graham?
I don’t get to see him or my four sons (Billy, Charles, Rafferty, and Laurie, aged four to nine) as much as I would like.
Sarah said: "You find any couple that's been together for years and they never say 'it's because we've both got long toes'"It's a magic formula, people aren't compatible because they both like yellow socks and drink latte's instead of cappuccinos."I think the things that make us like each other aren't the things we have in common, it's the things we don't have in common." The presenter originally set up because she thought getting people's friends involved would make internet dating more accessible and fun.
"The best way of meeting people is through other people, but if you haven't met someone in real life you can meet someone through other people on a website," she said.
