Dating sites for the over fifties
These days, it is often the first option for someone looking for romance, not the last.
The industry has completely transformed a fundamental aspect of human communication, changing how we meet new people and go looking for partners.
Suddenly there was a different way to find a partner, one that promised practically infinite possibilities, where an algorithm could find you the “right” person without you needing to do the hard work of ever actually talking to them in person.
And if you don’t like what you see, you can always click on to the next profile – there is always another candidate just around the corner!
Nobody’s profile really represents what they’re like in real life.
And as a result, you will either underestimate them – and dismiss someone who could be a good match – or else overestimate them and then be disappointed when you meet in person.
Unfortunately, when you’re reading the profiles of other people, it’s easy to forget that this rule applies to them, too.
You know that what you’re seeing isn’t an accurate representation of them, but it doesn’t stop you from judging them on it anyway.
They found that just over 84,440 people in the UK fit the average person’s requirements, from an adult population of 47 million. In other words, applying the average person’s filters when it comes to finding a compatible partner gives you less than a 1 in 500 chance of being successful.
Yes, that’s just the number of different it’s no wonder that many people find online dating overwhelming!
