Along with that is something I like to think of as "boomer enlightenment": a realization that our days are numbered and precious, and divorce might be preferable to staying in an unhappy marriage.Finally, there are more women in the workforce than ever before, giving them the economic autonomy and freedom that more easily allows for divorce. Finkel, a professor of social psychology at Northwestern University and coauthor of a study of online dating, thinks highly of this method of meeting potential mates. It is a marvelous tool to meet people you might not have otherwise met," he told

And if you're a woman who prefers the hirsute to the hairless, there's a even a site for that. No, it wasn’t to find a mate, but to see if they offered any advice to the midlife dating crowd.

There, Barbara Waxman, MS, MPA, mentions something that I wouldn't have considered as a clue to compatibility: ask a potential date which section of the newspaper he or she reaches for first. Reach for the travel or sports section—well, that's a given that the person is into, um, travel and sports.

Waxman also dispels the common myth that all men are looking for younger women, saying that there are plenty of men looking for women around their own age and that "with age comes clarity." I have my share of divorced friends. Others are eager to date but afraid to dive into the dating pool. And then there are those who have taken the plunge with an open mind and heart, and continue to have fun, new adventures. But, one word of caution to those reentering the dating scene: practice safe sex.

When you consider how many marriages end in divorce, it's not surprising that by your middle-age years you know a lot of people who are either looking for love, actively dating, deciding to live life without a partner or are on their second, third or even fourth marriages. CNN reports that although divorce rates have stabilized over the past several decades for the general population, they've risen among baby boomers.

According to a study by Bowling Green State University, divorce rate among couples over 50 more than doubled in the last two decades.

In 1990, fewer than one in 10 people who divorced was 50 or older; by 2008, it was more than one in four. Some couples meet in high school or college, settle down and marry young.

It's not just the Maria Shrivers and Arnold Schwarzeneggers or the Tipper and Al Gores of the world who are splitting up and taking the tough emotional journey of divorce. Busy lives building careers and raising children cement the marriages—but perhaps only for so long.

Once careers are solidified or children are grown, many couples realize that they've grown apart or don't really have much in common any longer.

Communication becomes difficult or practically nonexistent. For some couples, their beliefs or value systems might have shifted.
