With the skyrocketing divorce rate, more people than ever before are now single at an older age. These people have to begin their lives over again, and that includes dating. For many of them, this is a frightening time. They had a settled life and thought dating was something they would never do again. Most are unprepared to jump right into the dating scene, but others are undaunted. Online sites have helped those who are older to make new connections and begin dating again. There are sites that specialize only in finding matches for older people who are more settled. This has made the fearful prospect of dating much easier for many older adults but beware of scam sites which target older singles who are less likely to understand the Internet.
