CNN – Online Dating for Boomers Increasing Trend
CNN reports that a 2010 e-Harmony survey found the internet is now the most popular way for people over 50 to meet and marry. “I’ve always thought the idea that the older generation is afraid of technology is overblown, because they now seem to adopt it, and adopt it in numbers just as much as everybody else does, ” said eHarmony.com’s Gian Gonzaga.
Stacy Dansey, 61, feared looking on-line for love after hearing horror stories from friends. Then she said her daughter told her about ourtime.com, a dating site for people over 50.
“It’s just a numbers game,” she said. “The more people I meet the greater the odds that I will meet a guy who wants to have a loving warm committed serious monogamous relationship.”
