I came across these interesting stats on seniors and online dating from Kate Forgach, a baby boomer consumer specialist for Kinoli Inc, and thought I’d share:
-Based on a report from the 2010 U.S. Census, more than 16-million unmarried Americans were 65 and older.
-Between 2006 and 2007, there was a 140-percent increase in senior online dating.
-According to a 2011 international study conducted by the Oxford Internet Institute and funded by eHarmony, middle-aged men and women were the most likely people to use online dating sites.
Age, I suppose, knows no bounds when clicking your way to love. It makes me happy to hear that online dating has been so successful for older men and women! Read my other posts on online dating here.
Lots of <3,
