Compared with eight years ago, online daters in 2013 are more likely to actually go out on dates with the people they meet on these sites.Some 66% of online daters have gone on a date with someone they met through an online dating site or app, up from 43% of online daters who had done so when we first asked this question in 2005.Online dating is also relatively popular among the college-educated, as well as among urban and suburban residents.And 38% of Americans who are single and actively looking for a partner have used online dating at one point or another.We welcome visitors and members of all ages and from all countries around the world and particularly those who are in their 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s or older.Our members are primarily from the UK, USA, Canada and Australia but we have many english speaking members from all around the world.Many retired men and women are attracted to senior chat rooms as a way to be social and interact with other seniors online.
While most high quality websites have checks in place to make sure there are no fake users, it’s important no matter who you’re speaking to or how much you feel you trust them never to share personal information in a chat room, for example your bank details or full address.
Learning how to use chat rooms has many advantages for seniors, one of which is the ability to connect with other people around the world and discuss a variety of topics.
For anyone who is looking to make connections but who might be immobile or simply wanting to reach out using technology, chat rooms can do the trick.
