Dating sites for baby boomers life is to short dating

Beverly Hills, Calif.-based blogger Treva Brandon Scharf, 51, said she met her husband on Facebook - “but could’ve easily have met on any of the dating websites— which we were on as well.” Northern California-based love and intimacy coach Michele Fabrega said she often points clients not to dating sites as such but to Meetup, a site where people can find others who share an interest such as hiking, touring a museum, maybe going to the theater.

The advantage for her clients with Meetup, she elaborated, is that “they can follow their own interests and participate in activities that they enjoy or new activities they want to try." "The stakes are much lower than in a first date situation and they can meet others in a more relaxed setting and cultivate friendships and relationships over time," she added.

Boomers are more likely to be single, divorced or widowed, studies have shown.“On my dating site, I've spoken with many Baby Boomer women who are joining my site because they are lonely and are looking for more ways to meet a life partner to enjoy their golden years with,” he said.Not all Boomers are finding love on official dating sites, incidentally - but they may still find it online.“People who are too choosy will end up lonely — or unemployed.” He calls the time spent looking romantic unemployment.“If you’re giving up a year of your life to look at 60, it’s a big chunk of the time you have left,” he adds.
