She noted in a statement, “Those who use Tinder to find partners for casual sex with no strings attached often find the experience confusing and frustrating when they are matched with people who are looking for serious relationships." It's got all the now-standard swiping and matching of most dating apps, but it’s only for people looking to hookup.All of the pleasure with none of the messiness of having to suss out whether this match could be “the one.” Li told us one feature that makes it stand out from the crowd is "moments." Similar to any social media feed, it allows you to upload photos and thoughts and share them with the other users.No matter what type of relationship you're looking for — from the forever kind to the friends-with-benefits kind — there's an app for that!I've been hearing my girlfriends discuss their wins and losses with a variety of online-dating phone apps, so I'm breaking down the newest means of tech-based courtship.Further evidence of Roving Eye Syndrome came from a study of sexuality in the United States commissioned by AARP in 2009: It found that 6 percent to 8 percent of singles age 50 and up were dating more than one person at a time.The same study revealed 11 percent of survey respondents were in a sexual relationship that did not involve cohabitation.

"No," Marilyn said with a laugh, "it's better than that: I'm in like with him — and that's exactly where I want to be." She further confided that they planned to make their reunions "a regular thing — if four times a year can be called 'regular.' But I think that's about all I really want." Marilyn's casual approach to maintaining a friendship with benefits typifies the mindset of older folks who have reconciled themselves to having "great fun" even if it's "just one of those things."
