And while she'd never declared that she was lonely or wanted to find someone, Hannah sensed she'd like to be in a relationship."She's being the face of it for all these other people who are too scared to say, 'Yeah, I am 60, 65, and I can still meet someone'." Would she set up a profile for Jan on Tinder?Now, it's a little bit edgy but still credible in terms of meeting someone on it,." he says."I think it's harmless, and it's safe, and for people in my age bracket, over 50, I think it's worthwhile." Joanna (not her real name) returned to New Zealand from a stint in London 10 years ago to find not a dating pool, but a dating puddle.In the first week, Jan received 50 applicants from all over New Zealand, as well as Australia and the UK.Jan declined to be interviewed, but Hannah says her mum had tried online dating in the past and found it too arduous.
I want to be with someone who's humble, compassionate and knows how to cook. Ladies I'm just hear looking for fun at this stage, not quite ready for relationship, unless the right person comes along...But the novelty wore off, and she began to feel like she wasn't going to find The One on there.So, six months ago, the 46-year-old working mother of one started using Tinder."I don't really like the thought of my mum on Tinder," says Hannah."Based on the people I know on Tinder, it is a little less serious, more 'lets hook up and have sex'." IN PRAISE OF TINDER Not so, says Hamish Aitcheson, a Tinder-using 57-year-old father of two.Named The Sea (as in, "plenty of fish in…"), the site was designed and written by her 27-year-old daughter Hannah, and looks more modern and vibrant than dating websites.Men are invited to fill out a form, and Jan and Hannah sort through the applicants together, contacting whoever Jan is interested in.Aged in their late 30s, 40s, 50s and older, those in this group have often survived the breakdown of marriages and long term relationships, they usually have children and/or demanding careers, have the complications that come with middle age – children, houses, demanding careers – and little desire to be hooking up in bars at midnight.Instead, these people are taking to Tinder, or creating their own websites, looking for love and long-term relationships.I'm honest,caring,loyal,humble,great snuggler especially those... Everyone likes the outdoors, laughing, travelling, a glass of wine with their friends.
