Five years ago, Donna's second husband had some bad news."He told me I had to move out," she recalls, "so he could move his girlfriend in." Donna didn't think there could be a third chance at love.
Two years later, Donna's friend introduced her to Prime Singles.net, a personals website for the 50-plus crowd, saying, "Even if you don't meet a guy, the women are so much fun.You'll have a blast in the chat rooms." Prime Singles caters to some 38,000 grandparents looking for love."Most are divorced, followed by the widowed, and a small percentage who never married," says Gail Laguna, vice president of corporate communications for Prime Singles' parent company, Spark Networks.Over at Match.com, new membership numbers are skyrocketing in the 50-plus category — which shows a 300 percent jump from year 2000.This rapid-fire growth may be attributed to the overall increase in the number of 50-plus singles over the past three decades: Twenty-nine percent of adults ages 45-59 are now single compared to 19 percent in 1980, reports the Census Bureau.Donna followed the advice and joined Prime Singles.
Shortly thereafter, she received a "smile" from Skipper Rod, a now 49-year-old boater from Ocean Park, Wash.
The two e-mailed back and forth and before long were chatting nightly on the phone.
One thing led to the next, and the two met face to face.
"He knew I went to college in Astoria, Ore., which is just a across the river," says Donna.
"He said, 'I want to meet you in Astoria — a place where you have good memories.' And I thought, 'Oh man, he knows all the right things to say.'" Donna and Rod later moved in together.
Although neither plans to remarry, they've made a lifelong commitment to each other.
