Older adults, however, look for companionship in a way that’s very different from their younger counterparts.
When you're trying to use someone to complete you, you're creating an incomplete relationship.
Let’s take a look at nine things you (probably) didn’t know about dating for older adults: It seems counter-intuitive to say that people characterized by one attribute — how old they are — don’t care as much about age when looking for a companion, but it’s true.
Young people are incredibly age-prejudiced, to such an extent that age is one of the most important filter criteria used to find a match on online dating sites. Age is the second-most important attribute used to help users determine if they’re interested in a potential match (after the photo).
When you're in love, things happen at their own pace. Immature couples, however, don't have those feelings, those instincts and those effortless moments.
They make up rules and guidelines and assume time is the only thing that makes or breaks their relationship.
Mature couples don't just accept one another's pasts but want to help heal the wounds.
They look beyond the mistakes and the flaws toward the beauty in the future together.
This scenario is not just on Match.com, but on E-harmony, Ourtime, Plenty of Fish, OK Cupid, and the rest of the dating websites.
The filtering mechanisms on these dating sites similarly emphasize the importance age takes in the minds of young match-seekers, with all users asked to specify the age range they are seeking, with many choosing ridiculously narrow ranges (e.g. ) Adults over 55 are far more flexible in their approach to companionship.
We all have a past, and in many cases, one we're not proud of.
We can't help what happened to people before we knew them. Immature couples, however, refuse to see beyond the past.
With the obsession that today’s media has with youth and appearance, you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s only the young who are looking for companionship, that dating is a young person’s game. Which of the following images do you think the media is more likely to use to accompany an article on online dating? At the same time, more older adults over 55 find themselves single and looking, either through divorce or the tragic loss of a husband or wife they loved for many years.
