Think You're Too Old for Russian Dating?

16. February 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

Many gentlemen shy away from Russian dating because they believe online dating websites, including those specializing in international connections, are for young people (singles in the 18 – 40-year-old demographic). However, one recent study found that middle-age men and women (41 – 69) find love online more frequently than their younger counterparts. Surprised? Here are the specific results of the study.

The Press Association reports that the Oxford Internet Institute’s survey of 12,000 couples in 18 countries found that 36% of 40 to 69-year-olds reported forming a romantic relationship online, as opposed to only 23% of singles between the ages of 18 and 40.

The study also found that online dating isn’t the novelty it once was. In 2009, 30% of the couples surveyed tried finding love online (as opposed to 6% in 1997), with half finding their current significant other on a dating website.

"Finding your partner online was once regarded as a bit of a novelty, but this survey suggests it has become a common if not dominant way of meeting new partners, particularly if you are between 40 and 70 years old,” said Dr. Bernie Hogan, study co-author and research fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute.

One common myth about Russian dating is that Eastern European matchmaking sites are populated only by 20-somethings, an age group many gentlemen feel is too young. While we cannot argue that the majority of HotRussianBrides are in their 20s, what many gentlemen do not realize is that there are plenty of 30-something, 40-something, and 50-something ladies on our site as well.

While some men may dismiss themselves as being too old for Russian dating, the truth is that middle-age singles are the age group most likely to find love online, and there are over 1,500  ladies between the ages of 41 and 65 looking for a mate on HotRussianBrides.com right now.
