Internet dating for oldies


07-Aug-2016 11:57

Like so many things in life, dating is a numbers game.

But, as we get a little older it sometimes feels like the odds are tipped against us! In the last few years, companies have started to realize that there is a huge opportunity to help people over 50 to find partners and have opened senior dating sites just for us.

The app seems to work best when the bonus features are purchased, as is the case with most dating apps made for seniors or not.

The search, messaging, and other features of both the i Phone and Android app seems to be user friendly and visually appealing enough.

More and more people on Ok Cupid (and other sites such as Plenty of Fish (POF)) use two different profiles.

One profile contains great photos and little information, while the other contains great info and vague photos.

Travel is the #1 interest for Stitch members, as the site explains that the section helps people save on rooms and meet new potential friends.

You can also look forward to meeting with someone for a coffee, dinner, movie, concert, or any other event, as the site focuses on connecting people based on just about any interest.

According to datingadvice.com, the site features millions of monthly visitors and a higher ratio or women to men, which is a rarity on some dating sites.

Obviously, not all dating sites are created equal, so, to help you cut through the noise, I sat down with dating coach, Lisa Copeland for a quick comparison.

Lisa is a dating coach who focuses on helping older women to find quality men.

Use of the site includes a monthly fee for paying members, and includes features such as photos, video, and audio greetings — just in case you want to see and hear your potential match.

You can download the i Phone and Android app, which both seem to be fairly serviceable.

On a practical level, Lisa and I discuss the best senior dating sites.
