Think online dating is only for the ugly, desperate, or weird? Think again. These midlife celebrities used an online dating site to find love, and many of them did it because they were busy and just couldn't meet the love of their lives any other way. Sound familiar? Maybe you'll find some inspiration in these celebrity online dating stories.
Six years ago, Joan Rivers gave online dating a whirl on the site Match.com. The then 72-year old put up a picture and said she was "interested in coffee and conversation." Rivers did meet a man online that she dated for several years.
Her approach is a good one for any online dater: keep it light and fun. No one wants to read an overly serious profile, so if you can break down your intentions to the most basic (wanting to meet someone special, wanting to chat with someone new), you'll have much more success with online dating.
