Things have been moving so quickly here at Stitch Central recently that it’s easy to forget that it’s only a little over two months since we announced ourselves to the world.
As our partner psychologist Sam Owen puts it: "as we get older and our children have flown the nest, we can have fewer people in our social network which can increase our feelings of loneliness".One way to expand your social circle is through over 50 dating online, and with 1 in 3 of our members aged 50 Elite Singles is a great place to start.Young people are incredibly age-prejudiced, to such an extent that age is one of the most important filter criteria used to find a match on online dating sites. Age is the second-most important attribute used to help users determine if they’re interested in a potential match (after the photo).This scenario is not just on Match.com, but on E-harmony, Ourtime, Plenty of Fish, OK Cupid, and the rest of the dating websites.Once you’re into your wisdom years your needs, desires and expectations are very different from what you’re looking for when you’re in your 20s.
Let’s take a look at nine things you (probably) didn’t know about dating for older adults: It seems counter-intuitive to say that people characterized by one attribute — how old they are — don’t care about age when looking for a companion, but it’s true.
But, you are definitely not alone and we have plenty of people aged 50 on our platform and all over the UK For those of us who grew up without the internet the concept of looking online for love may, at first, seem somewhat unnatural.
Nowadays however, it is the easiest way to find a compatible partner.
It's crucial to be forward-thinking, upbeat and focused on the new people you meet - if you are dating after divorce, sharing your past relationship problems especially early on, is not a good idea and may only serve to push people away in the long term.
Also bear in mind, that many singles over 50 are not necessarily looking for romance in the traditional sense.
We pride ourselves on providing a safe, secure and easy-to-use environment where you can meet new people.
