I saw on one of the daytime talk shows where they had three adults up holding signs "myth" or "true" - one statement was that the biggest group of online daters are those in their 50s and older.

It's true!

How 'bout that!

Too bad y'all are taken :)

I would actually believe this.

My coworker is in her 50's and is dabbling in online dating. I get to hear about it all day long. Unfortunately she is on plentyoffish.com, which is not people seeking relationships...they are more interested in the physical part of a relationship, if you know what I mean. She wants a relationship and can't get it through her head that this site is for those looking for hookups. So there is a lot of mismatching going on and her whining all the time. Oh the stories I could tell but I won't bore you, lol.

Kudos to those of you who do this. It's not for me. Well, obviously as I'm married ;), but even if I wasn't, it's too much info about me out on the web. I've had several friends who met their SO on eharmony.

Oh wow..so in other words...lie on the question thingy...IF you want alot of responses...

oh well I ain't looking so guess it is a moot point with me anyway..LOL

They do that on Eharmony.com. My husband and I were both on that website, too, but never saw each other there. Neither of us had good luck there and didn't stick around there long. I met a couple of rude men from there with poor sense of humors. I only emailed a couple of times with them and only through the website, never from my personal email addy, and in no way would meet them in real life. Eharmony asks way too many questions and then you send the question sheet to the person you're communicating with and they answer questions from the list and it goes back and forth like that. I thought it was a bad idea!! My husband thought the same thing even though our paths never crossed on that website.
