Over forty dating group
It's no longer a talking point if you meet The One in cyberspace.Online dating technology is evolving, fuelled by sexed-up 20-somethings furiously swiping left.Where singles once struggled to get a date, apps such as Tinder make it possible to date a different person every night of the week. But there's another vast group of people using these apps who don't want such fleeting interactions.Aged in their late 30s, 40s, 50s and older, those in this group have often survived the breakdown of marriages and long term relationships, they usually have children and/or demanding careers, have the complications that come with middle age – children, houses, demanding careers – and little desire to be hooking up in bars at midnight.They all post photos with pets, on boats, with a drink, disguising their flaws and looking as hot as possible.
Instead, these people are taking to Tinder, or creating their own websites, looking for love and long-term relationships.
New services are popping up that specifically cater to this older market, such as Stitch, an app founded by Australian Andrew Dowling that targets those over 60.
Men are invited to fill out a form, and Jan and Hannah sort through the applicants together, contacting whoever Jan is interested in.
In the first week, Jan received 50 applicants from all over New Zealand, as well as Australia and the UK.
Everyone likes the outdoors, laughing, travelling, a glass of wine with their friends.They're all looking for someone kind, down-to-earth, intelligent, with a good sense of humour.
