Companionship in their words “covers friends, marriage, and everything in between.” There’s less of an emphasis on sex and physical appearance and there’s no system of rating like on other apps.There isn’t even in-app messaging because as Dowling explains: “We found that our users prefer to speak on the phone.” So maybe they’re not looking for hookups, but the idea of just how matches are made are very Tinder-ish.Dating options for young people have never been more plentiful. Stitch is a new Tinder-like dating service for adults 50-years and older.Besides major social media networks like Instagram and Snapchat, which now offer ways to talk privately with one another, there are the specialized dating apps like Ok Cupid and the most popular, Tinder. It’s the brainchild of Andrew Dowling, CEO of Tapestry: It’s online now, and soon to be an app, that allows seniors to use Facebook and other social media in a simple, accessible way.The response was overwhelming: 500 registrations in less than 3 days, and over 250 very detailed comments.
Stitch aims to set-up people who are geographically close to each other for romance, activities or simple phone conversations. ” Anyone who’s ever used Tinder knows most people on there are not looking for a companion. They define companionship as including the entire spectrum of introducing someone new into your life.
For one thing, people used to stay married; they weren’t out in the jungle, searching for romance.
Besides, these women just looked so ancient – permed hair, beige cardis.
A big obstacle to finding love after 50 happens when you're NOT putting yourself in places where you can be seen and found by available men on a DAILY BASIS! What man doesn't love improving his golf swing and now they can do it year round at indoor and outdoor driving ranges. Men are there checking out books and movies every day. All you have to do is make sure you're in places where the two of you can meet. Have a vision that is too narrow when it comes to the kind of men you are willing to date.
Men can't find you when you're hiding every night at home. Ask most women what they want in a man and a type similar to Richard Gere's character in "Pretty Woman" comes to mind. Having been spoon fed on fairy tales as a little girl can jade you to who a great guy might be- often giving you unrealistic expectations of who "Quality Men" really are. Stay open to dating all kinds of men with all kinds of looks, backgrounds, and interests as long as they are economically self sufficient, meaning they can hold their own and won't be financially dependent on you. Give up on dating after one or even five bad dates!
No one is going to know you're even available and even worse, they can't find you. Just remember you don't have to take a giant step to get out of dating frustration.
