If you are in your 50's and still single, there is hope for you.

FOX's Ashley Papa has this week's "FOX on Love":

Some might assume that at midlife people are no longer interested in dating and intimacy.

A survey by the dating site for singles over 50, OurTime.com, shows that myth is far from the truth. OurTime spokesperson and author of 'Your Best Age Is Now', Dr. Robi Ludwig, says people are feeling younger, longer:

(Ludwig) "People in their 50's and beyond have a much better outlook on life now. Singles in their 50's are also more open minded, they're ready for love, they believe in romances and are open to marriage."

Ludwig says these inaccurate myths about singles over 50 don't reflect today's mid-lifers.

(Ludwig) "People in their 50's and beyond were thought to not be open to new experiences. That their heath is deteriorating and they're lonely, less social and have a negative outlook about life."

With more midlife singles feeling positive about dating, it makes sense that many report being turned off the most by pessimism.

With FOX on Love, I'm Ashley Papa.
