Here, a look at how more boomers are turning to dating websites – and how to get started if you're new to the online dating game.

Q   I’ve been divorced for five years and, at age 54, I’m really not looking forward to being alone for the rest of my life. I went through some pretty rough years and a lot of grief, but I’m ready to give love another try – I think. My friends and family have been encouraging me to try the online dating thing, but I’m not sure about that. It feels so contrived and I admit I’m really quite terrified by the prospect. Should I be?
