Most people who think about online dating, automatically assume that it is for a younger crowd. Not so says recent research.
The average age of the on-line dater is 44 years of age, which may not seem like much help for the senior but there is another statistic that does. People over the age of 60 are the fastest-growing group of online daters.
With so many seniors divorced or widowed, it’s no wonder that loneliness becomes an issue and online dating may solve some of those problems.
Dating again may seem like a huge task but online services can make it easy and safe for seniors to meet someone compatible. Here are some tips to help seniors look for love in a safe environment:
If a face-to-face meeting is desired, it should be arranged in a public place such as a coffee shop. Safety should never take a backseat to fun.
It’s always a good idea to have another eye to screen potential contacts. You don’t want to intrude on the senior’s privacy but it may be helpful to have someone who is more knowledgeable about the online world looking in.
