Perhaps people don’t really mellow with age.  Twelve months of data on new memberships from, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, has revealed a 29.5% increase in new members over the age of 60, and a 35% increase in those over 50.  The sample set includes new signups between April 2017 to April 2018.

Women seem to be more interested in cheating on their spouses than men.  Or perhaps they appreciate the discretion the site promises. They lead the surge with a 43% increase in female signups over age 50 compared to a 30% increase in new male users over 50 looking to for their extracurricular activities.

In fact, over a two-year period, there’s been a 49% total increase in registered users over the age of 50.

The site’s spokesman, Christian Grant, explains:

“I think older people who have been married a while, experienced all the ups and downs – and particularly if they’re resolved to stay together – are more pragmatic about marriage.  They’re able to separate the institution of marriage and long-term commitment from a brief, sexually-charged fling.”

“Of course, there’s also the inevitable decline in physical attraction that comes with years of being together.  So many of our clients have come to even realise that the thrill of the new can do wonders to improve conditions at home.”

As one of the  website’s users Lucy, 61 from Durham illustrates:

“It has been a great experience for me, and as a result has actually improved my marriage. I have met four people from the site so far, and have had fun with all of them, even though I was only attracted to two of them. “
