STOW-ON-THE-WOLD, England, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- A British dating Web site geared toward the "aesthetically challenged" said it is celebrating its first member engagement.

TheUglyBugBall.com, which launched about a year ago, said the engagement of members Tom Clifford, 36, and Janine Walker, 31, marks the first betrothal resulting from the site's services, The Sun reported Thursday.

The couple, from Stow-on-the-Wold, England, first talked online in August, met in person for the first time one month ago and became engaged after only four dates.

A spokesman for the Web site said Clifford and Walker will receive a free honeymoon in Borth, Wales.

"This is our first engagement, and we are obviously delighted for them both," the spokesman said. "We offered them the trip to Borth because we have a company caravan there and wish them every success in the future."
