My mom is almost 84 yrs old. I was talking to her tonight and she mentioned that my cousin, who is 40 & was widowed a few years ago has a date tomorrow. She says "Guess how K met this guy? On the internet." I said, "Mom, this is how most people over 40 meet nowadays. You can't go to a club cause everyone there is in their 20's, so if you don't meet people at work, it's hard to find people." And I told her that my other cousin's 25 yr old DD met her DH through EHarmony.
Then I said that I would probably be signing up for OLD since I hadn't met anyone since my div, but I probably would spare her the details so she wouldn't worry.
I have to think that when she was young & before there were computers, people didn't have to worry about this since it wasn't 1/2 of the population getting divorced so there weren't all these middle aged people who were single anyway who had to worry about how to meet.
