    Delhi has the highest number of users who are 50 & above while Chennai hosts the maximum number of women from the age group.

    The platform has been experiencing a 30% spike in users from the senior age group of 50 & above since the beginning of the lockdown. Ravi Mittal, Founder of QuackQuack says; “It’s been heart warming is to see the rise in our women user base that has grown a steep 12% when compared to last year. Also, its pleasing to see the growth in our users from the old aged group, it shows the effectiveness and change in the online dating culture in India”

    It has been found out that the elderly spend 50% more time as compared to the millennials when analysing profiles on the dating app. They also spend 70% more time in chats while talking to their counterparts and 50% more likely to buy paid subscriptions as compared to the younger lot. Most of them are looking for companionship and they don’t shy away from interacting or liking profiles of users that are much younger if they do not find matches from their age group

    With 10% active users Delhi has the maximum number of senior users followed by Bangalore at 8%, Mumbai at 7.5%, Hyderabad 7.02% and then Chennai at 6.88%. The men: women ratio is 9:1 for people of this age group, though the users are loyal to the platform and are quite active on a daily basis.
