Senior people have a tough time finding a partner, in their advanced age. There are many dating web sites on the Internet, which give an opportunity to the middle-aged, to look for love, online. These sites are great platforms for seniors to come together, meet new people, and find prospective partners.
Best Dating Sites
These sites are some of the best I came across, after my research throughout the Internet.
This is the top recommended site for seniors. It is one of the most frequently visited sites, with 400,000 active users online. It specializes in matching seniors with ages more than fifty and above. However, the site puts no lower age or upper age limit on membership. Other than serving as a portal for senior singles looking for romance, it doubles up as a social networking site, where seniors can also connect with friends and look for companionship.
Placed at number two is 'AgeMatch', a paid site, which also has a large and active user community. Along with matching seniors with prospective partners of their age, it specializes in looking for younger partners for older members and vice versa.
Placed at number three is 'SeniorMatch', which impresses with its sleek styling and ease of use. It has got detailed search functions and many attractive features. This is also a paid site, which is operated by the people who own AgeMatch.
Placed at number four is 'PrimeSingles', a site devoted to finding a match for 50+ singles, which also has no lower age limit for joining. It is unique in the extent to which it lets non-paying members access the site features. Signing up for the site is straightforward and easy. They have a specially designed 'Ideal Match' software, which is designed to find a perfect match for you.
'SilverSingles' is also one of the best sites, especially designed for seniors. It is run by Spark Networks, which also owns 'AmericanSingles', the largest dating site in America. This is also a quality site, which offers excellent customer service.
This site offers senior dating services, along with instant messaging, chat rooms, forums, and detailed profiles of members. It is a well-designed and well-thought out site, offering good customer service. One unique feature, offered by this site, is a video message uploading facility.
FiftyAlready is a site dedicated to serve seniors in UK and Ireland. It is a complete package, with instant messaging, chat rooms, and detailed photo profiles. Compared to the top five sites, this one seems cruder in its interface, but has a wide user base.
There are some free online dating services too. Thanks to such sites, seniors can now meet prospective partners, with similar interests, and make their choice.
