SilverSingles Celebrates Major Milestone; Surpasses 50,000 Monthly Paying Members Worldwide

BERLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Just 14 months after its re-launch, SilverSingles, the leading online dating platform for the 50+ demographic in Spark Networks’ portfolio, has exceeded 50,000 monthly paying members globally. The milestone marks SilverSingles’ growing importance for Spark Networks SE.

It’s a bet that’s paid off; following the merger that created Spark Networks SE, the online dating company re-launched SilverSingles by leveraging the existing technology platform that powers its hugely successful flagship brand, EliteSingles.

The rapidly expanding membership base proves there are significant gains to be made in the 50+ online dating segment. The growth comes at a time when online dating acceptance is at an all-time high for this demographic. The brand has resonated particularly well with older singles in the US and Canada, where the young at heart feel empowered to live their best lives. CEO of Spark Networks SE, Jeronimo Folgueira, explains: “As people enter the best half of their life, they know what they want, and aren’t afraid to go out and get it. SilverSingles provides them with a high-quality platform to connect with like-minded individuals.’’

Jeronimo says of exceeding the 50,000 subscriber milestone: ‘’We are very proud of what SilverSingles has achieved as a brand in such a short amount of time. The success of SilverSingles is not only great news for our business, but also represents an outstanding new opportunity for singles on their quest to find a compatible partner. It's a win-win for Spark Networks, for our shareholders, for our members, and ultimately, for love.’’
