Over 50s dating website SilverSingles has reached the 50,000 monthly paying members milestone, just 14 months after the platform was re-launched.
Parent company Spark Networks invested heavily in marketing its senior dating brand this past year, with the target demographic beginning to present major opportunities for companies in the sector.
CEO Jeronimo Folgueira said in a statement: “As people enter the best half of their life, they know what they want, and aren’t afraid to go out and get it. SilverSingles provides them with a high-quality platform to connect with like-minded individuals.
‘’We are very proud of what SilverSingles has achieved as a brand in such a short amount of time. The success of SilverSingles is not only great news for our business, but also represents an outstanding new opportunity for singles on their quest to find a compatible partner.”
Most of the SilverSingles members come from North America, though Spark Networks is based out of Germany. Pittsburgh was named as the best city in the US for single seniors by Match Group-owned OurTime.
Spark Networks has had a very positive start to 2019, and has seen its stock price increase by 32% since the end of last year.
A representative from the umbrella firm will be speaking at the first GDI Singapore Dating Conference in May, alongside Paktor, Pairs, Matrimony and many more.
