Senior singles constitute a sizeable community of individuals actively searching for dates on the Internet. This should not come as a surprise given that more than 65 percent of US seniors are active web users. Being single after a certain point in life often leads to isolation and chronic loneliness, but thanks to technological advancements that have brought the web closer to those less tech-savvy users, such as our parents or even grandparents, the number of senior singles browsing the online dating sites has never been higher.
According to a 2017 Pew Research Center analysis, more than 40 percent of individuals aged 65 and over in the US use smartphones, over 65 percent say they use the Internet, while more than half have broadband at home. Just over a third of seniors in the country use social media, and as the number of people networking online on a daily basis keeps on increasing constantly, there is nowhere for these numbers to go but up.
Although many single seniors out there are members of various book, gardening or hiking clubs where they're able to spend time with their peers, meet new people, and socialize as much as they wish, the clear advantage to using dating sites and apps is that they get to meet people living outside of their community. As a result, their circle of friends increases, boosting their chances of meeting a potential partner.
Therefore, it’s no wonder that sites such as Senior Next are expanding their platforms and teams to accommodate all those seniors who have realized their options online are much greater than in the offline world.
