Internet dating for over 50s singles. Did you know that an increasing number of mature men and women are using online senior dating services? These new members are realising that finding new friendships isn’t as daunting a task as it may first seem.
Internet dating sites have become a mainstream way to meet someone special: there’s now a 50:50 chance that any single person you know is currently logging on to find love. In 2007, 7.8 million single Britons used some form of online dating service to find romance, compared to the 5.4 million who used a mixture of offline and online services in 2005. Internet dating is now far more than a niche activity: in the last 12 months, 52% of British men and 48% of women have used the Internet to find a date, compared to 2005 figures of 36% for men and 34% for women. What’s more, 53% of singles (59% of men and 46% of women) say they intend to use the Internet meet someone in the future, with figures rising to 65% and over for mature singles.
Interesting reading, but let’s look at some figures for those of us 50 plus and looking for love. Recent statistics indicate that 49% of people over 50 are single. There are countless other singles online who all want the same thing, to find a date. More and more people are realising the benefits of using online dating sites, the ability to email, chat with, and talk to a multitude of potential mature singles and all from the comfort of your own home.
Some members don’t advertise the fact that they use an online dating site, perhaps they feel worried about the response from friends and family. As the figures above show, there is nothing wrong with finding senior singles online and more and more of us are taking advantage of this new tool. Just like a bar or a club, this is just a different venue to meet different people. So try to view internet dating as exactly that, and improve your chances of finding like minded mature singles.
