Single and Over 50? Great Dating Starts Here

Are you single and over 50? Do you want to meet someone to share your life with? Online dating with SilverSIngles is a great way to find a compatible connection. Our dating site has been specifically designed for men and women dating after 50. Join them today!

Single and over 50? Welcome to your new adventure

Being single and over 50 isn’t what it used be – and that’s a very good thing! These days 50+ singles aren’t few and far between: in fact, they’re part of a dynamic and ever-growing group with some estimates saying that as many as 40% of over-50s in the US are single.¹

With this huge rise in numbers has come a shift in attitudes. No longer are older singles supposed to take a back seat – instead, they’re getting out there and grabbing life after 50 by the horns. For some, that may mean staying single and pleasing only themselves, for some that may mean seeking companionship and connection with someone special. Either way, these days, being an older single isn’t something to be feared.

In fact, in 2018, being single and over 50 is the start of a whole new adventure.

Why singles over 50 are so suited to online dating

In a happy coincidence, the rise of dynamic over 50 singles has coincided with the rise of online dating. This is great news for those who are single, and over 50, and looking for love – for there’s no better platform for seniors to meet seniors than an online dating site!

Let’s face it, meeting other 50+ singles in the ‘real’ world can be tough. Chances are the only confirmed singles you meet on a daily basis are those 20 or 30-somethings in the office, and you’ve long exhausted your friends’ lists of single friends. Even when you do meet someone new who seems promising, you have to check for a wedding ring before you start flirting.

Online dating is a different story however, especially if you pick a dating site designed with older singles in mind. With such a site, you become part of a community of men and women who are also single and over 50, eliminating the need for those awkward ‘are you married’ questions. What’s more, with a serious site that also takes personality into account, you can forge connections that run so much deeper than simply sharing a demographic. It’s the ideal way to find a genuine connection with someone wonderful.

Want to change your single status? SilverSingles can work for you

Of course, online dating success does often come down to the dating site you choose. If you are serious about looking for connection with others who are single and over 50, then a great site to choose is SilverSingles. Our supportive dating service and membership base of interesting older singles make us a great place to start your dating adventure.

Here’s three reasons people love SilverSingles:

1. SilverSingles is a supportive dating site

Dating is easier when you have a tool on hand to help you meet interesting singles, and SilverSingles is the ideal tool for the job. We’re on hand to support your search from the moment you sign up: our Customer Care team approves new profiles, so you don’t have to worry about time-wasters, and our efficient dating app lets you start dating again at a time and place that suit you.

You can also get dating advice and support from our SilverSingles magazine. From tips on how to create an engaging profile, to advice on what to write in that first message, to lifestyle stories about being 50+, our magazine is the ideal mix of practical advice and fun articles that can help you truly enjoy being single and over 50.

2. Our members are single, interesting, and 50+

A dating site is only ever as good as its members, and we’re proud to say that the single men and women using SilverSingles are a fantastic, diverse, and interesting bunch.

As our website is pitched at older singles, our members tend to be those dating in their 50s, in their 60s, in their 70s (and maybe even beyond!). Many are dating after divorce or bereavement, which gives them an experienced perspective on love – but this doesn’t mean they’re boring! Instead, we have a wide range of personalities and interests on the site, who are all connected by their desire to find a genuine connection with someone really compatible.

3. Our matchmaking is personality-based

Another thing that sets SilverSingles apart is our focus on personality-based matchmaking. When new users join our site, they take our insightful personality test, letting us get a clear picture of their hopes, desires, and ideal partner. Then, we do our best to bring them matches that fit the bill!

That means, if you’re single and over 50 and looking to change that, then SilverSingles is a great place to start. When you join us, you’re joining a community of interesting older singles, and we can help you meet the ones who most suit you through our matchmaking process. It’s simple, effective, and a whole lot of fun – so what are you waiting for? Join SilverSingles today!
