There's no denying that online dating has become mainstream, but it is surprising that seniors have become its fastest-growing group of users. And it turns out they use dating sites a bit differently from their younger counterparts. Study authors Wendy K. Watson and Charlie Stelle of Bowling Green State University reveal a little more detail via this press release:
[T]hey are finding that older adults appear to market themselves differently on online dating sites than younger adults. Gone is the focus on appearance and status. They believe the senior population appears to be more interested in honest self-representation and being compatible rather than discussing areas such as sexual prowess and nightlife.
Turns out older people prefer "personal characteristics such as affection, intelligence, independence, purpose and goals, religion and spirituality, political beliefs, health and status" than details about your "sexual prowess and nightlife." Good to know.
