OurTime.com, The Nation's Largest 50+ Dating Site, Reveals That Dating Never Gets Old

LOS ANGELES, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, OurTime.com, the largest online dating community for 50+ singles, reveals new data that offers insight into what - and who - is behind the ever-growing trend of Boomers and senior online dating.  Consider there are 107MM singles in U.S., and more than 1/3 of them are over 50!* Yet despite their prevalence, this influential and growing demographic of daters remains largely misunderstood.  According to OurTime.com, these tech-savvy singles come from every background, every part of the country and every walk of life – and are blowing the lid off pre-conceived notions around what it means to be 50, 60, and even 70+ and single.

"This is a vibrant, growing community of singles that's taking the dating scene by storm, and rightfully so," said Dr. Terri Orbuch, relationship expert for OurTime.com.  "By and large this age group is happier, more secure, and even feeling sexier than their younger counterparts.  They also are a better judge of the type of person who will make them happy, so it's the perfect stage of life to be looking for love." 

Internal member data from OurTime.com, as well as information from sister-site Match.com's 2013 Singles in America survey, paints a surprising picture of the 50+ online dating demographic.
