A recent Pew survey on remarriage found that divorce rates for older Americans have doubled since 1990 and one in two divorced or widowed seniors had remarried in 2013.
It's never too late in life to find a companion, and it's never too late for romance.
For some, whether internet savvy or not, the idea of beginning a new relationship through a senior dating site is completely uncharted territory.
There can be many natural concerns to overcome, especially if you find yourself single again after the death of a spouse or divorce later in life. You probably know about the big online dating sites.
Things have been moving so quickly here at Stitch Central recently that it’s easy to forget that it’s only a little over two months since we announced ourselves to the world.
In fact, we’re not sure you could even call it an “announcement” …
A companion/dating site for older adults age 50 and over, Stitch launched earlier this year in San Francisco and is accepting signups from users in other areas of the country.
New York City and Los Angeles are up next and will launch when enough people have registered from these areas.
The online dating scene is a bit of a jungle, with people claiming to be who they aren’t (younger, mainly) and potential matches getting stuck in endless email conversations before ever meeting.
But with promising new sites launching all the time, it’s becoming easier to navigate the landscape and find the right fit for you, whether you’re looking for companionship, a lifelong lover or a fun date for the weekend.
our first public appearance was in a blog article we published on the Tapestry Blog about dating for seniors titled “9 Things You Didn’t Know About Dating for 55 ”.
The article shared some of the interesting lessons we had learned about dating for seniors from a closed trial we had been running in Northern California, and asked people to let us know if they wanted to be involved in a more expanded trial.
I started this site as a resource for the many older women and men who are seeking love and companionship in their golden years.
