Gay senior dating
Paula Paulette is going to be 80 in April — and she’s online dating.And she’s not just looking for someone to eat ice cream and play bingo with.In April, Stitch.net, a Tinder-like dating app for the over-50 set, launched, and it’s set to debut a local New York section next month.Like Tinder, it shows users just one profile at a time, and it alerts them to profiles where a person they’ve liked has liked them back — so they’re less likely to reach out to someone and be met with silence. The legalization of gay marriage in Canada in July 2005 saw thousands of gay and lesbian couples celebrate their love across the country.Thankfully, gay dating with Elite Singles lets you take control of your love life by putting you into contact with compatible single men who also like the idea of a lasting relationship.In many practical respects, gay dating in South Africa is the easiest it’s ever been.
Unlike many other dating sites, which tend to focus more on casual hook-ups and short-term flings, Elite Singles is designed for Canadian men seeking men who are looking to enter a lasting relationship with someone special. Over a decade later, the number of long-term LGBTQ couples continues to soar, and more and more gay singles are aspiring to meet their special someone.“The last thing I want is a [platonic] male companion, unless he’s gay,” says the vivacious senior.“Do I want to have solo sex for the rest of my life? I would love to find another soulmate, or, at least, another man I have chemistry with.” Paulette was widowed at 70 after a very happy marriage of nearly 50 years.Every day, 1 million Americans, 70 percent of them women, attend one of the country’s 11,000 senior centers.With a median age of 76, they are largely low-income Caucasians who visit the centers one to three times a week, for an average of three-and-a-half hours per visit.
