I thought I would pass along some interesting stats from Match.com which is one of the largest and most popular online dating services to meet single women:

56% male, 44% female

29% are under age 30; 51% are ages 30-49; 20% are age 50+

79% have some college or a college degree

69% non-smokers, 24% smokers, (7% did not answer)

56% do not have children, 23% have children who at least sometimes live at home, 19% have children away from home (2% did not answer)

The 50+ age group is the fastest growing demographic
