A study has found that dating gets more fun as you get older - and has revealed the top 20 tips for dating in later life...
The research, which was carried out by Saga, surveyed 1,000 over 50s and 1,000 under 50s to compare the dating scenes at both stages of life.
Unsurprisingly, older singletons are apparently more relaxed and comfortable in their own skin than teenagers, and those in their 20s and 30s feel under immense pressure from their friends and people what they see on social media.

Interestingly, the older daters found dating much more "awkward" in their younger years, and weren't sure what they were looking for - but they now know what sort of person they want to spend the rest of their life with.
The research found that a quarter of over 50s consider themselves "more romantic" now, and 23% want to find "The One" whilst a cheeky one in 10 are just looking to boost their sex lives - oi oi!
