One thing we have been struck with has been the important role that dinner plays in the social (or not-so-social) lives of most older adults.
Nobody likes the idea of spending years cooking for themselves and eating alone.
Things have been moving so quickly here at Stitch Central recently that it’s easy to forget that it’s only a little over two months since we announced ourselves to the world.
In fact, we’re not sure you could even call it an “announcement” …
The hottest online dating app for young people today is Tinder, which proudly claims to be matching over 450 million love-seekers daily.
This scenario is not just on Match.com, but on E-harmony, Ourtime, Plenty of Fish, OK Cupid, and the rest of the dating websites.The response was overwhelming: 500 registrations in less than 3 days, and over 250 very detailed comments.We realized immediately that our little trial of online dating for seniors was something that resonated with people all over the world, and that we needed to go ahead and build something that would help us touch the lives of older adults everywhere.On the other hand, the 75-year old woman who has had past back problems and likes to stay in with wine and movies might be a great match for that 65-year-old man. Having said that, we do find that the younger a user is, the more likely they are to focus on a specific age range, especially if their main goal is to find a romantic companion.The other stunning aspect of dating for young people is how much looks matter.It has felt a bit strange, then, that the article which inspired Stitch doesn’t appear on the Stitch blog.
