Over 50 dating

If you are over 50 and considering online dating, it’s a fairly safe assumption that you are done with flings, games and unsuitable partners and are probably looking for a stable, long term relationship with someone of a comparable age with similar interests and goals.

So where do all these successful, mature singles hang out?

Online dating has been the number one way new couples meet for over 5 years now but the rate at which the over 50’s are taking to online dating has increased by nearly 10% year on year over the same time-frame. There are various reasons for this, but the main ones are simply that – online dating is proven to work and mature singles generally have more responsibilities, more demanding careers and possibly have children from previous relationships. All these factors make it difficult to find the time to get out there and meet new people. Here are Generations Dating, we provide a safe, secure environment for people over 50 to meet potential partners at their own pace.

Tips for dating in your fifties

Take your time

The main advantage of using an online dating site is choice. Don’t feel pressured into anything. With so many members, take you time to explore the site, read members profiles, explore their photos and try to build up a picture of the person. Don’t forget your own profile. Other members will be doing exactly the same as you. If you do not take the time to write something about yourself or include at least one recent photo, you are not likely to get much interest or responses to your own messages.

I’m too shy or embarrassed

Don’t worry about that. Many members are. If you see someone who catches your eye, try sending them a short, friendly message just saying hi and maybe referencing something you both have in common. If are really shy, why not send them a wink or icebreaker through our built-in communications tools to get the ball rolling.

Take advantage of our search tools

Our powerful search features include a host of different ways to find potential matches. You could start off with some basic searches like age and location. These filters make it easy to find people nearby or a similar age. You can even set a filter so your searches only ever return members within a certain radius of your location or within a certain age range. You could even go as far as setting your privacy to the same location so members outside of the area or outside your target age range cannot see you or contact you. Once you have the hang of the basic search features, you will also discover you can search by a whole range of further options such as interests, religion, height, body type, the list goes on. Who don’t however recommend you start by refining your search too much before you get a feel for the site and our members. You might be surprised who you meet and who you find you are attracted to.

Common questions

How safe is online dating?
