Dating services thriving despite Internet.

Dating services thriving despite Internet. There are two things here I find interesting: the idea that people prefer the traditional services because there's background checks on drug-use, employment status, et. al. As well, this breakdown of number of dating agencies by state. I would be interested in knowing the demographic breakdown of the clientele of the 66 agencies in Florida -- are there bunches of retirees looking for that special someone?

Judging from the list of dating agencies by state, neither do people in Hawaii, North Dakota, or Wyoming.

Retirees in Florida are dating fools. Trust me, after living there 10 years the idea most people have in their minds of old folks just sitting and biding their time till death is wrong. They run around, dating like crazy, waiting for people to become single when their spouses drop off in all those retirement communities.
