What’s the Best Place to Look for Love After 60?

By Margaret Manning May 09, 2015 Dating

If you listen to the media, you would be forgiven for believing that looking for love after 60 is like trying to find water in the desert, blindfolded, without shoes… well, you get the idea. This might have been true in the 1950s, but, we’ve come a long way since then. The truth is that more people over 60 are finding love than ever before.

Part of the reason for this is that attitudes about love are changing. Unlike a few generations ago, there is nothing taboo the topic of intimacy and sex after 60. Baby boomers believe that they have every right to look for love – and so they should!

Another reason that more boomers are finding love is technology. Not so long ago, the only way to meet people was in-person, through social clubs, sports or other activities. Now, there are a number of dating sites that cater to the over-60 crowd.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with meeting in-person, and many people prefer this approach, but, the main point here is that we have more options than ever when it comes to finding love.

I’m curious what you think about this. Do you think that, despite the advances in technology, the best place to meet someone special is in-person? Or, do you believe that the best place to start your search for love after 60 is online? Please take a second to vote. I’d love to hear what you think about this.

What, if anything, is different about dating after 60? Have you or anyone that you know found love after 60? Please join the discussion.

I guess I’m old-fashioned enough (just turned 70) to prefer meeting someone in person. But if I were looking for someone now, I might try one of the dating websites.
