You can always update your preferences in the Privacy Centre."There's an increasing number of people in their 50s are trying to use online dating and dating apps," said Charly Lester, the co-founder of Lumen, a dating app for those over 50."Lots of over 50s were finding it quite challenging on other apps that were designed for millennials.For example, when you search for a film, we use your search information and location to show the most relevant cinemas near you.We also use this information to show you ads for similar films you may like in the future.Check out this handy glossary of modern hookup — and blow-off — terminology: Trickle Ghosting, started on a Reddit thread, describes when someone you’re talking to slows their communication with you to only once every few days. Cloaking is ghosting on steroids: when you’re stood up for a date and blocked on all communication platforms. It’s when your significant other has built a wall between you and their family.It’s not a full halt on chit-chat, like actual ghosting, but a much more drawn-out, passive-aggressive approach to an already conflict-averse type of breakup. It’s a huge red flag — it means they don’t see a future with you, so they’re not going to bother introducing you to the important people in their life.They’re not the whole meal, or good for you, but present (and delicious) when you need a sweet treat.

So we decided to create something specifically for that age group."Singles must be over 50 to sign up for the app Lumen - and it's already attracted 300,000 users."The key thing for us is safety," Lester said."People in their 50s are often targeted by scammers and catfishing - so we ensure that everyone is who they say they are."In order to sign up, you have to take a selfie that gets checked by our AI, to prove that you are who you are."The key thing is that people need to be honest about what sort of relationship they're after."Find out more about the app here.
