Just read ThirdAge.com’s Valentines Day Finds Looking for Love in New Places

Here was the heart of the article (pun intended) about boomers and dating.

There have been some significant changes in dating for Baby Boomers recently with many turning to online dating.

According to a recent report by Socialnomics, one in eight married couples in the U.S. met through social media, and statistics show that Boomers now represent the fastest growing segment of this online dating world.

Nearly 30 percent of Boomers are single. That’s a 50 percent increase in the past thirty years. And, many are turning to online dating.

One of the largest online dating services, Match.com, recently reported that people over the age of 50 make up the fastest growing segment of its users. In the past ten years, the site has seen a 300 percent increase in Boomers looking for love online.

When Boomers turn to the Internet in search of a partner, their interests are very different than those of younger adults,” said Bill Spink, Chief Creative Officer of 50 plus marketing specialist DMW Direct. “Most are no longer looking for a spouse or a parenting partner. And they’re more confident – they know what they want.”

Since it is Valentine’s Day, I went looking for a couple of videos that would be appropriate for today and also give a jump start to the week.

What I fould was two classics…Both named “The Power of Love”. One from Huey Lewis and the News from the terrific 1985 movie “Back To the Future.” And the other from Celine Dion.

Enjoy and have a great week. Happy Valentine’s Day!
