Online dating is coming of age, and is no longer merely for teen singles or college kids looking for love in all the right places. More and more senior citizens are using online services for finding love later in life, and it’s expected that 30 percent of men and 60 percent of women over the age of 65 will find dates online this year.
There are many senior-dating sites these days (classified as over 50 dating), with all the popular categories found on the younger versions: religious dating, ethnic dating, and lesser categories for same sex seniors and just sex seniors. The most popular online senior dating services are Lavalife Prime, PerfectMatch.com, Prime Singles, Senior FriendFinder, and Senior Matchmaker.
In addition, the other major services are also doing a brisk love business. eHarmony, Match.com, and Yahoo! Personals all are increasing their number of subscribers.
