He explained to Mail Online: 'The inspiration for the website came from my mum - a very lovely lady in her 60s, who has been single for too long.
Matt said he wanted to create a website that is fun and easy to use but also safe - all profiles are checked and vetted before going online.The profiles are only visible to other members and personal email addresses are not shared.All the profiles are initially set up by the younger generation (who must be at least 18 years old), who can sign up on behalf of a single, older relative (typically their parents but it could also be an aunt, uncle or friend).Their parent is then sent an invitation to join the website - which is free for the first three months - and expand their profile, then use it to meet like-minded people.He said: 'Older dads can often find it difficult to form new relationships in later life.
Many can become very set in their ways and lose the confidence and courage to meet new people.
Whether you’re looking to meet new friends, find a hot hookup, or start connecting with someone who could turn out to be the love of your life, Ok Cupid’s got you covered.
Ok Cupid calls itself “the fastest-growing online dating site,” and they’ve got the numbers to back it up.
Sons and daughters can recommend other members to their parents for a potential date - but it's then up to the parent to decide if they agree with their child's suggestion.
She explains: 'The main appeal of my Lovely is the endorsement of a son or daughter.
'From a female perspective, if a guy has such a good relationship with an offspring that they are prepared to write something for the site, then that says something about him - and his relationship with his child.''You are not going to find someone by sitting at home,' she said.
