A study has found that dating gets more fun as you get older. The research, which was carried out by Saga, surveyed 1000 over-50s and 1000 under-50s to compare the dating scenes at both stages of life.
Unsurprisingly, older singletons are more relaxed and comfortable in their own skin than teenagers, and those in their 20s and 30s feel under immense pressure from what they see on social media.
