  • One of the big dating challenges for both sexes in this age group is that they are so rusty “they go back to their same awkward self at age 20, insecure and unsure.”
  • Many women are much more likely to be happy with a guy who has less money, or even less education, than they would have in their 20s or 30s.
  • Companionship is among the top reasons both men and women over 60 seek love. For the 55+, more than 80% of both men and women said that the main reason to couple was “to share life experiences, past and future.
  • Few get offended with prenuptials. Financial considerations are among the biggest reasons people in their 60s and older are reluctant to remarry. Many also worry about protecting their children’s inheritance.
