While entering the dating scene may seem daunting to people of any age who are newly unattached, according to global online dating app AYI.com, more and more older people are turning to online dating sites in a bid to find romance again.Consequently, online dating sites tailored to the needs of older crowds have sprung up in recent years to reveal some interesting trends.According to AYI's research on older dating habits, people in their 50s—particularly women—are a lot pickier than millennials when it comes to the age of a potential suitor, and more likely to skip over predetermined mutual “matches” than younger generations.“We found that women in their 50s and 60s tend to be interested in men younger than them," Fischer said.Only 9 percent of women over 50 would have sex on the first or second date, while 35 percent of women were likely to wait for up to six dates or more before having sex for the first time.Contrast that with men, where 38 percent would go to bed on the first date.
