Dating websites for over 50s

There’s no age limit on love, and today with the help of the Internet it’s easier than ever for over 50s to get back out there and start dating again. Whether you’re looking for a serious relationship or are after more social opportunities, there are plenty of ways to connect with people online in your age group that share your interests. 

Dating websites 

An easy way to get back out there is through dating websites. There are both paid and free services you can choose from to get started depending on what your needs and interests are. Services that are free to join like Mature Dating UK tend to offer the flexibility to browse through other members and choose matches you’re interested in, while paid services like eHarmony emphasise a match service where you will be matched with people based on compatibility and you own search criteria.

Particularly if your current lifestyle doesn’t offer you lots of opportunities to meet new people, a dating website can be a fun and straightforward way to connect with other singles in your area.

Filling out your profile honestly and being clear about what you’re looking for will help make the process one that’s rewarding and enjoyable for you – try and give as much information about yourself as possible and be clear about what you want and don’t want. Sites like SilversurfersDating.com, Match.com and JustSingleSeniors.com are all examples of popular dating services you could try.

Finding new friends 

Dating websites aren’t the only way to go about meeting new people – there are plenty of other ways to connect with others using the internet that are a little more casual than building a profile on a dating website.

My Lovely Parent is a good example of a dating website that offers a happy medium – someone you love like your son, daughter, niece or nephew will help you build a profile and choose matches they think are well suited to you. It’s a great way to try online dating with the help of someone you trust and the site has been designed to be easy to use even if you aren’t an expert at using the computer.

Meet Up is another great service – this one focuses more on finding neighbours and community groups in your area who you can connect with. You can suggest your own meet up or browse some on offer in your area. There’s everything from book clubs to singles nights on offer, and it’s a great way to find new friends and love interests in a way that focuses on face-to-face contact.
