GLOBE AND MAIL -- Sep 15 -- In a new era of divorce, approximately 25% of Canadians born between 1946 and 1964 are single. According to a poll by the American Association of Retired Persons, only 15% of single boomer women and 22% of boomer men are looking for someone to marry or live with. But they are looking for friendship. Since last year's launch of LavalifePrime, an online dating service for people 40 and over, 65,000 people have registered. "They're looking for people they can do activities with," says Agneta Owen, who helped launch the site. "I'm sure a lot are finding romance as well, but it's a lot less about getting married."
