Dating Sites for Seniors

Senior people have a tough time finding a partner, in their advanced age. There are many dating web sites on the Internet, which give an opportunity to the middle-aged, to look for love, online. These sites are great platforms for seniors to come together, meet new people, and find prospective partners.

Best Dating Sites

These sites are some of the best I came across, after my research throughout the Internet.

SeniorFriendFinder

This is the top recommended site for seniors. It is one of the most frequently visited sites, with 400,000 active users online. It specializes in matching seniors with ages more than fifty and above. However, the site puts no lower age or upper age limit on membership. Other than serving as a portal for senior singles looking for romance, it doubles up as a social networking site, where seniors can also connect with friends and look for companionship.

AgeMatch

Placed at number two is ‘AgeMatch’, a paid site, which also has a large and active user community. Along with matching seniors with prospective partners of their age, it specializes in looking for younger partners for older members and vice versa.

SeniorMatch

Placed at number three is ‘SeniorMatch’, which impresses with its sleek styling and ease of use. It has got detailed search functions and many attractive features. This is also a paid site, which is operated by the people who own AgeMatch.

PrimeSingles

Placed at number four is ‘PrimeSingles’, a site devoted to finding a match for 50+ singles, which also has no lower age limit for joining. It is unique in the extent to which it lets non-paying members access the site features. Signing up for the site is straightforward and easy. They have a specially designed ‘Ideal Match’ software, which is designed to find a perfect match for you.

SilverSingles

‘SilverSingles’ is also one of the best sites, especially designed for seniors. It is run by Spark Networks, which also owns ‘AmericanSingles’, the largest dating site in America. This is also a quality site, which offers excellent customer service.

DatingForSeniors

This site offers senior dating services, along with instant messaging, chat rooms, forums, and detailed profiles of members. It is a well-designed and well-thought out site, offering good customer service. One unique feature, offered by this site, is a video message uploading facility.

FiftyAlready

FiftyAlready is a site dedicated to serve seniors in UK and Ireland. It is a complete package, with instant messaging, chat rooms, and detailed photo profiles. Compared to the top five sites, this one seems cruder in its interface, but has a wide user base.

There are some free online dating services too. Thanks to such sites, seniors can now meet prospective partners, with similar interests, and make their choice.

Double Date Ideas

Double dating is quite common, especially in high school students, though not limited to teenagers. People like to spend time with their loved ones as well as their friends by going on a double date. It is a good idea if your friend wants to introduce you to his/her new boyfriend or girlfriend. You can really have lots of fun on these dates and try out interesting new things which you have not tried before with your partner, ultimately bringing you both more close. There is no dearth of activities that couples can enjoy together. Let us have a look at some sporty ideas for double dates.

Bonfire
Bonfire is always a popular activity, and if it is a double date, it can be intimate as well. Sing your favorite songs, dance, or have a nice talk. You can also play some interesting games, like dumb charades, making the night more fun. You can try to make it more of a musical night. The guys can play bongo drums while the girls dance or play a romantic tune on the guitar. The moment will be perfect when you play the guitar and your girl sings a romantic number complementing your tune. How about preparing a delicious barbecue with the bonfire set up at a beach? Relaxing with yummy food on a cool starry night under the moonlight could be very romantic. It is really important that you savor time with your partner personally, even though it is a double date. Well, there are many things you can do. Customize your dating plan with some creative ideas, and think of something exciting and innovative which none of you will ever forget.

Bowling
If you want an exciting as well as romantic date, bowling could be great. Watch your guys admire you while you play. They will definitely love the idea. You can have a competition with the other couple to see who scores more points. You can either play or cheer for your guys, and then see the glow on their faces and the enthusiasm with which they will play. You will find yourself more closer to each other by the end of this date.

Movie
Watching a movie together is one of the simplest and best double dates. Go for a movie which everyone would like to watch, or else you might find the others sleeping when you turn your head to say “good movie”. Munch on some yummy cheese popcorn and enjoy the movie together. You can also opt to watch a movie at home, which will be more informal and cozy. Prepare some popcorn and snacks. You can spend a lazy afternoon in this relaxing and fun way.

Dinner at Home
Prepare dinner at home, decide the menu in advance, and do not hesitate to experiment with new dishes. One couple can go shopping for the necessary ingredients and set the table, while the other can prepare the dinner. You can also make it a candlelight dinner. Get some champagne to make it perfect.

Water Park
People wanting to try something adventurous, specially during summer, can go for a water park date. It is real fun to go on the exciting rides with your partner. It is a mixture of romance, excitement, and thrill. You will definitely cherish this date for a lifetime.

There are many tips and etiquette that one needs to follow while going on a date with another couple. Staring at your friend’s girlfriend or boyfriend, no matter how good looking they are, will not only leave a bad impression about you, but can also harm your relationship. You might lose your friend and partner at the same time, or maybe they will never again trust you the way they always did. Thus, it is your responsibility to behave well. Having fun definitely does not mean behaving in any way without thinking.

Do try out the ideas mentioned above, and if possible, come up with some of your own. Take pictures to capture the moments so that you can cherish them later on. Have fun!
