Senior Dating Site Internet Matchmaking for a Modern Age

Have you been on a senior dating site lately?  It used to be that the idea of old people dating seemed odd, if not disgusting.  But as baby boomers have become the “old people,” it is no longer considered abnormal.  People over 50 have the same needs for companionship and romance as the younger generation and many are finding a senior dating site to be their best solution for finding love.


A senior dating site operates in much the same way as any other site.  Mainly, the marketing is different because it segments a specific audience – those over 50.

First you have to find a senior dating site that meets your needs.  There are many to choose between.  You should take advantage of the sites’ free features before settling on one.

Some sites give you full access for a limited period such as seven days.  Other sites give you limited access for an unlimited time but allow you to start contacting members yourself only after you upgrade to full (paid) membership.

Once you do settle on a senior dating site, you will need to create a profile.  Consider what you put on your profile carefully as it is a very important component as to how your potential dates will perceive you.

You should spend about two-thirds of the section talking about yourself and one-third talking about what you would like in a partner.  One tip is to use the word “because” a lot.  This forces you to refine what you really mean.

For example, if you describe the perfect date as "taking a walk on the beach at sunset," that is not very clear. But if you add the word "because" it forces you to explain what it means to you, it also gives your potential partner a good insight about who you are.

In addition to creating a great profile, you should also upload pictures.  People who upload pictures on a senior dating site receive 20 times more emails than people who don’t.  You are cutting yourself off from the vast majority of people if you don’t upload a photo.

There are a couple of reasons for this.  One is that people who stumble across your profile naturally are hesitant to contact someone when they don’t know what they look like.  But an even more important reason is because many people, who use the search feature, ask to only see profiles which contain pictures.  Because most people find connections through a search function, it is a good idea to upload a photo on a senior dating site.

Finally, once you have the profile and any pictures up, you can start sending and receiving emails.  When you get an email from someone you are interested in, you can look up their profile and decide whether to respond.  Emails lead to phone conversations which in turn lead to real life dates.

A senior dating site can help the over 50 crowd make meaningful connections in a complex world.
