Adult children help their single parents find new love
UK-based My Lovely Parent sets itself apart from other dating sites by giving adult children a way to help their divorced or widowed older parents find new love online.
Users of My Lovely Parent, which was created by two brothers with “a very lovely single mum in her 60s,” begin by signing up on the site and creating a profile for their single, over-50 parent. They then browse for potential matches, and recommend any likely candidates to their parent; an email is automatically sent with information about those potential matches and a link to the site. From there, it’s up to the singles themselves whether or not to forge any offline connections.
