Paula Paulette is going to be 80 in April — and she’s online dating.
Like Tinder, it shows users just one profile at a time, and it alerts them to profiles where a person they’ve liked has liked them back — so they’re less likely to reach out to someone and be met with silence.
Stitch co-founder Marcie Rogo, 29, says she first became aware of the need for a site for seniors when she worked at an assisted living facility in 2010.
“Seniors aren’t the elderly babies that people stereotype,” she explains. ’ And if you’ve lost your spouse, it’s really hard to meet someone new.” Paulette finds Stitch especially appealing because it conducts extensive background checks — something she appreciates since she’s had bad experiences in the past with dishonest dudes online.
So, even though there are plenty of other apps that facilitate quick and easy encounters, there’s clearly a demand for something dedicated to purely casual connection that isn't Craigslist.
This week marks the biggest online dating week of the year (combined with the biggest divorce week of the year).
“All he did was talk very inappropriately about his ex-girlfriend and said horrible things, like that she was stalking him,” she recalls. And I started looking at how I could leave.” Rogo explains verification means that anyone who signs up has to submit their first and last names and Social Security number.
“We don’t want to let any scam artist through the site,” she says.
And you can see them when you look at anyone's profile.
As with anything like this, scamming and fake profiles can be an issue.
She also says one important feature of Stitch is that it allows people to search for romantic or nonromantic companionship.
The pressure many sites put on dating “can turn people off if they’re recently widowed,” Rogo notes.
“The last thing I want is a [platonic] male companion, unless he’s gay,” says the vivacious senior.
