"With the launch of OurTime.com, life just got a lot more interesting for singles over the age of 50," said Josh Meyers, CEO of People Media, the targeted dating subsidiary of IAC. "OurTime.com offers singles over 50 a unique combination of focus and selection - we've gathered more than 1 million 50-plus singles who share their desire to date within their age group. This natural affinity makes it easier to find like-minded matches and strengthens the relationships formed through the site."

Over the last two years, IAC's dating sites have experienced significant gains in membership among singles over 50. The rapid growth, which included a 400% increase in this member segment on People Media sites alone, prompted a newly energized approach to the category.

"This growing segment has clearly embraced online dating," said Greg Blatt, CEO of IAC. "Our approach with any demographic category is to provide online dating choices, and this is no exception. To complement the broad-based experience enjoyed by so many over 50 on Match.com, we're offering the more targeted experience of OurTime.com. We expect substantial growth to continue with this group across both properties."

Internal research has illuminated interesting differences between singles over 50 and younger demographics, including:

"Much of the pressure of parental expectations, child-rearing, and career has lessened or is gone by this stage in people's lives," said Dr. Gail Saltz, OurTime.com's Relationship Expert and a go-to relationship contributor for NBC's "The Today Show." "This allows singles to approach dating from a more relaxed perspective. Their main concern now is simply to live life to the fullest."

Before their reintegration as OurTime.com, IAC's sites dedicated to 50-plus singles added almost 10,000 new users a day and reported a daily average of more than 300,000 communications exchanged by members. Thousands credit the sites with introducing them to that special someone with whom they can enjoy this tremendously fulfilling chapter of their lives.
