So how do you get the most out of your senior dating experience, and maximize your chances of success?

Well, there is so much I can say about this, but let’s start with your senior dating site profile – how you describe yourself and what you are looking for in a match. Read more…

Senior Dating Mistakes to Avoid

If it’s your first time on a senior dating site and you suddenly see a selection of attractive looking, smiling senior singles in your area, all wanting to meet someone, you could find the experience quite intoxicating!

The danger here is that you can become addicted and spend all your time online while neglecting other areas of your life. Keep one foot in the real world and don’t rule out traditional dating either. Give yourself a time limit to spend online each day (or every couple of days) and stick to it because minutes will quickly turn into hours and your day can easily be lost. Read more…

Making Contact with Someone Online

When you first join a senior dating service, you’ll be keen to make contact with that special someone who you know is out there somewhere. But when you do take the plunge, how do you make contact with them and what mistakes should you avoid? Let’s take a look at these a little closer.

After you have browsed the profiles and found a few that you like, there are several ways you can make contact with the people you have chosen. The most common way, initially, is by sending them an email.

Don’t think that you have to send out only one email and wait for a response (which may not always be forthcoming) before moving on to the next one. Initially, you should try sending out about five or six emails to your senior dating contacts and keep a record of them for your future reference. Read more…

When you join a Senior Dating site, you’ll find there’s an option to post a photo along with your profile. While it isn’t compulsory to do so, it makes a huge difference to the number and quality of replies you’ll receive.

Not posting a photo creates more suspicion than mystery and people could well make judgments about you because of it. Read more…

Senior Dating for Beginners

Many people in their senior years can find themselves alone for all kinds of reasons. I meet people all the time who are on their own through divorce, or perhaps through the loss of a spouse, or simply because they’re still searching for ‘the one’, having tried several others along the way. You might find the idea of Senior Dating a little bit daunting, but don’t let it be. You have so much going for you and the rewards can be wonderful! Read more…

Senior Dating Made Easy.

I started this site as a resource for the many older women and men who are seeking love and companionship in their golden years. Every day, thousands of senior people meet other mature adults through the senior personals but for many of them, it’s their first online experience and they don’t know where to begin.

For some, whether internet savvy or not, the idea of beginning a new relationship through a senior dating site is completely uncharted territory. There can be many natural concerns to overcome, especially if you find yourself single again after the death of a spouse or divorce later in life. But fear not, help is only a click away!

You probably know about the big online dating sites. You may have even browsed the online adult personals, but you might not be aware that there are also hundreds of senior sites dedicated specifically towards helping older singles find relationships.

Some of the best seniors personals sites have tens of thousands of members which means it’s easy to find people in your area around the same age, as well as younger women for older men and older women for younger men. The world of online senior dating is truly your oyster. You can choose the type of person that you’re looking for and we’ll help direct you to the best sites to find them.

As a general rule, online senior dating sites cater to men and women over fifty, but I regularly get emails from mature sexy women who are dating younger men in their forties and even younger! While many of my readers are women seeking older men, I’ve also noticed a growing number of younger men who are dating mature women because they want to find someone to spend the rest of their lives with and they know that there’s no substitute for maturity and experience.

If you’re new to the world of senior dating, then I hope you’ll find this site useful as we talk about the many benefits of older dating. Whatever your age and life experience, you can find someone out there who’s right for you and I hope to help guide you on your quest to find your perfect senior date.
