As to the “why” behind the lack of date-nights, nearly 60 percent say they don’t need a relationship to be happy.
There is such a difference between what is available for men and woman.
For those who grew up with school books rather than i Pads and dinner dances instead of Facebook, the idea of entrusting the internet with one’s love life might sound silly.
Yet, to dismiss online dating out of hand is to dismiss one of the most popular places for older Canadian singles to meet.
Indeed, dating sites like Elite Singles are well suited to the mindset of the over 50s.
Dating at this age can be tricky, after all – it’s not always easy to meet other singles full stop, let alone those with whom you have a lot in common. Not only are there many so-called 'senior' singles actively looking to find a partner via the internet, our smart matchmaking system means that you can look with the assurance that those people you do meet will already be suited to you.
