Internet dating for divorcees
And it's no longer stigmatized to say you met on Match.com, JDate, Our Time or Plenty of Fish.

Perhaps they were with an addict so this time they just want to be with someone who is mellow (maybe even boring); or, perhaps they had been with someone who didn't "meet" them as a partner and now they want to hold out for their intellectual equal. I find that people over 50 tend to believe that no one would possibly be interested in them because they perceive themselves to be "old." The good news is 50 is the new 30!It used to be that only "losers" had to look online for a mate.
The bad news is that sometimes people lie or misrepresent themselves. Perhaps the greatest shock to someone who's been married for the past 25 years or so is how much the dating scene has changed.
