Senior Dating in the USA
Senior dating in the USA is one of the largest growing sectors of the overall, global senior dating market.
Naturally, there are a multitude of reasons for this growth in senor dating but it is primarily a result of changing, more liberal, social attitudes plus, of course, the way modern day communications are instant and far-reaching—you can be in touch with almost anyone almost anywhere in the world in seconds!
So, let’s have a closer look at some of the key reasons that senior dating in the USA is on a growth curve:
- by and large, senior people are living longer; changes in lifestyles and the cures and prevention of diseases means a longer life expectancy for most—hence more seniors around. Not only that but, with easier national and international travel, seniors are far more mobile than ever before
- coupled with this first point is the fact that the relationships of many seniors in the USA no longer last the duration of a lifetime as they may have done even 10 years ago. Divorces, separations and seniors splitting up instead of doing everything they can to stay together as they may have done in the old days—either for family or other social reasons—are far more commonplace nowadays. Of course, despite seniors, typically, living longer there are always going to be senior people who are widows or widowers.
So, in short the number of seniors in the USA available and looking to date is far greater than previously. And where do these seniors who want to date look? How do they find a new partner?
- in times gone by, for a senior in the USA looking to date, he or she may well have had to be content with seeking a suitable new partner in his/her neighbourhood, area, town or city—with, quite frankly, rather limited chances of success.
With the advent of the internet and extensive social media channels, especially over the last 4-5 years, senior people in the USA who are genuinely interested in dating can easily and quickly find and join a dedicated senior dating site. The advantages to this are obvious—and these include: almost instant access to a wide variety of other seniors wanting to date; the opportunity to meet people from all over the country or even from overseas; the ability to screen the potential other person without ever having to make direct contact until they are ready; to comfortably find out the likes and dislikes of other seniors who are members of the senior dating site and wishing to date; and so on.
In fact, the advantages of joining a specialised senior dating site are almost endless; additionally, an oft forgotten factor is that senior dating sites also can offer a sense of community for those seniors who otherwise might be lonely and without companionship if it were not for such sites.
Put all together, the combination of more senior looking to date and the almost instant availability of senior dating sites aimed mainly at those seniors in the USA planning to date again, means that this trend is likely to continue to be strong for the foreseeable future.
