Dating sites really do give us opportunities that we could only have dreamed of in the past and the ability to get what we want.
Senior dating has become more popular recently as the 'stigma' has slowly disappeared and more of us are happy to admit that we met online and even that we are searching online for a possible partner.
Update November 2017: Dating for seniors over 50 is one of the fastest growing areas on The Net and is quickly becoming one of the areas where the most money is spent!
Most of us would agree with the saying 'You only get what you pay for' so do we expect low quality love if we are only prepared to pay nothing?
I suspect that the answer to that is a resounding 'No' so why do we keep doing it? Free can be be good if you are really lucky but do you want to gamble with love, especially as it may be your last chance for it?
I was once chatting to a friend who had recently embarked on online dating and the way he put it was this: She said how she would spend so much a month on her gym subscription, so much on Sky and so on, I forget the other leisure things she was paying for.
