Online dating 'can give over 50s another chance at love'

A family therapist has stated that online dating can be a "godsend" for over 50s looking for love.

A relationship expert has called for over 50s still looking for love to consider online dating as a way of providing another chance of meeting someone special.

US family therapist Dr Terri Orbuch has told dating site SeniorPeopleMeet that online dating can be a "godsend" for older people struggling to find potential partners.

She stated that online services can allow over 50s to interact with a far wider variety of fellow singles than they would otherwise encounter during their everyday lives.

Dr Orbuch also advised over 50s never to lose hope in their search for a partner, stating that it is never too late for them to find somebody.

She said: "Many seniors believe in the concept of a soul mate and think they've already had their turn at love. That's absolutely not true."

This comes after the Daily Express last month stated that online dating has made it easier than ever for people to meet compatible partners without even having to leave their homes.
