Finding silver in the silver singles set
Baby boomers are the fastest-growing demographic
Apr 10, 2007
When it comes to online dating, one would think it a world dominated by the young, web-savvy folks in their 20s or 30s looking for love and the mates of their lives.
There’s a lot to that. The young do very much dominate online dating. Yet increasingly dating sites report a surge in older people, what they call silver singles, folks in the 50-plus set. Indeed, they say it’s now their fastest-growing demographic.
And no surprise, it’s also the most lucrative. Dating sites report that plus-50s are willing to spend more money in their search for love.

And it makes sense.
Your friends are married. Dating at work is tricky. Bars have lost their appeal. Online dating, while flawed, presents a terrific option for busy adults to put themselves out there.
