Reputable Dating Sites for Seniors

By Mary-Frances Walsh, 9:00 am on

In-home Sonoma County caregivers are often surprised when their loved senior wants to start dating. This can actually be a very positive development if your loved one has recently lost someone close to him or her. He or she will have someone special to go places with and talk to. If your senior loved one is having trouble finding someone to date, then you might suggest signing up for one of these reputable dating websites.

Match.com

Over 13.5 million visitors look for a relationship on Match.com each month, although not all of them are seniors. The site is easily searchable by age, but you can also filter results based on other criteria. This site has a balanced number of men and women, which is why it’s so successful.

Elite Singles

While Elite Singles is also not strictly for seniors, it is easy to filter the site by age. In order to register for this site, however, seniors must have a college degree. With that in mind, this program has a better fraud detection program than most. About 290,000 people visit this site each month. Statistically, there are about 13 percent more women than men.

OurTime

Sonoma County elderly care professionals recommend this site to seniors because OurTime is exclusively for people over the age of 50. Seniors who do not have great computer skills often find this site the easiest to use. There is almost an equal split between women and men, which makes it even easier to find a match. 

Senior People Meet

Users must be over 55 to sign up at Senior People Meet. There are about 2.4 million visitors each month at this popular site. Seniors can view profiles for free and join this site very inexpensively. However, women outnumber men by about 18 percent on this website.

eHarmony

About 4.1 million people visit eHarmony each month. Seniors undergo an extensive questionnaire in an attempt to match them with people who might interest them. This site is not only for seniors, although it can be filtered by age.

Family caregivers may want to talk to seniors about dating. Remind them to take a cellphone with them so that they can call for help if needed. Additionally, your loved one should make the first meeting in a public place. Learn more about ways to keep your loved one socially active when you call Home Care Assistance at (707) 843.4368.
