Is it any wonder that some consider loneliness to be the new epidemic in Irish society?
But wait, we’re living longer, generally feeling fitter and healthier, yet increasingly alone?
"But increasing longevity means people have more time up their sleeves now, and they're thinking more about what they really want to do with that time."notes that “over-50 is one of the biggest areas of divorce now,'' presumably as people realise ''they still have a lot of life, a long life to live.' Unlike previous generations who ''did not have options,'' today's older dating population seem to have nothing but opportunity.
Yet, despite the numbers, past a certain age it does become difficult to meet new singles, especially if you are part of a mostly-married group of friends.
In fact, taking just one group of ‘seniors’, those aged between 50 and 54, shows a population increase of 18% between 20, while the number of single people in this age group grew by a whopping 39% in the same period.
Go forward ten years to the 60 to 64 age group and you will see almost exactly the same thing, thirty-four percent of this age group recorded their status as ‘single’ in the 2011 census.
