Marcie Rogo | Co-Founder / Head of Marketing, Stitch.net

We built Stitch because far too many mature adults told us they felt alone. That online dating wasn’t for them. That the one thing they wanted more than anything was companionship. We built Stitch because nobody needs to feel lonely, no matter what their age.

Companionship is more than just "Dating". Today’s online dating services fail to recognize that our needs, wants and desires often become very different as we age. Stitch is for those who are looking for more than just a date. Stitch is for those who are looking for true companionship.
