Online dating 'can work for older singles'Posted on: July 17, 2012 13:23:34
US academic Eli Finkel has explained how online dating sites can be beneficial for single people in midlife and beyond.
The professor of social psychology at Northwestern University in Illinois spoke to the Wall Street Journal about how the "stigma" once associated with internet dating has all but vanished, while there has also been a "cultural shift toward people valuing fulfilment later in life".
This means many older people on both sides of the Atlantic are now going online to arrange dates and look for prospective partners.
Online dating sites have enjoyed a surge in popularity in recent years and older singles represent one of the fastest-growing user groups.
Dr Finkel, who recently co-wrote a study on the topic, described online dating as "a marvellous tool to meet people you might not have otherwise met" and said users should not be self-conscious about this method of seeking romance.
"What's wrong with being 57 or 75 and wanting a romantic partner? In my view, there's absolutely no shame in that," he told the newspaper.
