5 Popular Dating Sites for the Elderly

By Marius Butas, 9:00 am on

Research indicates about 45 percent of all seniors are single either through divorce or death. While some are content living without any romantic companionships, about 6 percent of these seniors have turned to the internet to find someone special. Mesa home care professionals suggest family caregivers help their senior loved ones with their quest through these matchmaking websites.

1. SeniorMatch

People over age 40 have been turning to SeniorMatch for over 14 years to try to find senior friends. This site offers an easy sign up. Your loved one may want to dig deeper into finding the perfect companion by taking the personality test. 

2. AgeMatch

Seniors who only wish to date people younger than themselves may want to consider AgeMatch. This 14-year-old site helps seniors find other seniors who are younger than them. People of any age are allowed to create a profile, but only seniors can initiate contact.

3. OurTime

Unlike many senior dating sites that focus on helping seniors form long-term relationships, OurTime focuses on helping them build friendships. Experts suggest couples do better when they become friends first.

4. SeniorPeopleMeet

SeniorPeopleMeet offers seniors over 55 the chance to sign up for an account. About 18 percent more women than men use this site.

5. 50plus Club

50plus Club educates seniors on dating, which they accomplish through a blog, online magazine, and chat room. Your loved one may also find possible companions on this small site.

Seniors looking for companionship and more may want to consider online dating sites. Family caregivers in Mesa, AZ, can help their loved ones with this quest and advise them to exercise care when meeting someone new.
