Going online for over 50 dating: is it for you?
For those of us looking to start dating again over the age of 50 it can be a daunting prospect. Divorces, separations and the loss of loved ones can leave us feeling unsure of how to proceed and questioning whether we should at all. But it’s never too late to find love, companionship and happiness, no matter what your age is!
In fact more and more mature men and women are turning to online platforms as a viable way of meeting new people. At EliteSingles we aim to make over 50 dating as smooth and accessible an experience as possible. Our site enables you to engage with eligible, compatible singles who share your goals, values and aspirations.
Over 50 dating: How we work
Many mature daters find meeting fellow singles in the same way they might have 30 or 40 years ago much more difficult. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any singles over the age of 50 out there looking to meet people!
We invest in our technology to create a product that connects you with the people you stand the best chance of getting along with. Our smart profiling system combines demographic data with your personal preferences and a unique personality profile to recommend between 3-7 compatible matches per day. This way we get a fuller picture of who you are, and can take into consideration what you need and desire in a partner. You can also search through additional profiles using our ‘Have you met…’ feature. As a result, we’re able to match people whose personalities and lifestyles complement each other to create over 2500 happy couples every month across all of our platforms.
Dating over 50 doesn’t get simpler than with EliteSingles. Once you’ve completed our easy registration process, you can begin meeting potential partners suited to you.

Taking the plunge
Singles over 50 should be encouraged by studies which have found that finding romance can improve one’s overall quality of life both physically and psychologically.
Not only can a healthy sex life increase happiness levels, decrease stress and provide a decent workout but beyond the physical there are numerous other benefits. As our partner psychologist, Sam Owen, says “a loving relationship can assist an increase in self-esteem and confidence” this in turn “helps us to make better decisions, experience fewer negative emotions and feel more optimistic about the world”. Add to this the comfort and solace experienced when facing hard times with a companion rather than on your own and it’s clear to see why a relationship can have a positive health effects. So what are you waiting for? Join EliteSingles today and start your search for a special someone.
Best foot forward
One of the advantages of dating online is that you can go at your own pace. But it’s equally important to ensure that your attitude is forward thinking and positive.
We’ve all had our share of negative experiences and many of us have been hurt in the past, but your new relationships are all about the future and should be approached with that in mind. A 2003 study by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) found that for both male and female singles aged 55+ one of the biggest problems faced when dating was “dating partners with a lot of baggage”. So be positive – in your profile and on first dates – this will engage your fellow singles and encourage them to respond positively to you.
