Senior dating sites claim to have a great track record of bringing senior people together.
Yet, in reality, it doesn’t really matter if you are over 50 and dating or any age - as being in love is exactly the same for everyone, young or old!
The average couple gets engaged two years, 11 months and eight days after first setting eyes on each other, according to research.
Just 46 years ago an average age for a new married couple was 22.6 years old for a girl and 24.6 years old for a guy, when today this number is much bigger – 30.8 years old for a girl and 32.7 years old for a guy.
Surprisingly, even though nowadays couples spend more time thinking about getting married, the number of ceremonies taking place each year is rising by 2.7 percent.
Alexandra Campos, of The National Wedding Show, which carried out the poll said: "Men everywhere should be getting ready to buy that ring and get down on one knee if they are anywhere near the three-year anniversary.
"If you really want to earn some brownie points, you could pop the question a few months earlier, as this research shows that's when women think it's the perfect time to get engaged." The poll of 3,000 engaged or married Brits also revealed that one in ten has even set a time limit on when they get engaged.

It’s not a secret that nowadays it’s taking much longer to get married than it was before.
In short, senior dating is just like any other type of dating; people meet (possibly through over 50 dating sites or through an introduction by friends), start dating and develop feelings for each other which, in turn, become what we call love!
Yet, for seniors this is not the so-called puppy love syndrome.
These days people tend to spend more money and effort on weddings, which means they need to save money for a longer period of time.
