Online dating is a hit with older adults! I’m Laurie Edwards-Tate with “LifeCycles.”

In the last year, dating websites for people age 50 and over have grown twice as fast as dating websites in other age groups. One of them, Our-Time-dot-com, says its membership has grown 400 percent in just two years. It now has one million members and claims it is adding thousands of new members weekly. Baby Boomers now make up one in four Americans, and nearly 30 percent of all Baby Boomers are single. And they are still looking for love. In a Harris Poll, 82 percent of Americans over 50 say they are happier than when they were younger. 93 percent say having a romantic relationship is an important part of their overall happiness.  Love truly is eternal! Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
