Various studies have found that older adults are the fastest growing segment of online-dating services. So if you're looking for love, this can be an ideal option.
Dating sites typically fall into one of two categories: those where users create their own profiles (think personal ads) and then can browse profiles of site members on their own, or sites such as e Harmony and that go a step further by screening profiles of other members to select those they deem to be compatible matches.
The selections you are shown are determined by the site’s proprietary computerized matchmaking system, based on an analysis of information you provide in lengthy questionnaires you must fill out when you first sign up.
When searching, all dating sites allow you to select an age range which is especially helpful for those in this niche.
Your search will display the members that fit your selection.
The rise in online dating among that age group was second only to the surge among millennials ages 18 through 24, whose use of those matchmaking digital tools nearly tripled during the same period.
