National Matchmaking Firm, Premier Match, Notices Spike in Older Singles Seeking Relationships
Over the past 5 years, singles over the age of 50 seeking relationships increased by 30 percent. Divorcing later in life has become part of a national trend. Statistics have shown that the divorce rate for people aged 50 and over has doubled in the last 20 years. In 1990, only 1 in 10 divorces was initiated by those over 50; now it is 1 in 4. Christie Nightingale, Principal of Premier Match, the national upscale matchmaking service confirms this trend. "Over the past 5 years we have noticed a significant rise in potential clients who are over 50 years old that are interested in dating. I would say we have seen a 30 percent increase in the number of new clients who are older than 50 who have recently divorced," Nightingale states.
