Bowling Green State University professors of gerontology, Dr. I am a real animal lover and have been a widow for 20 years. But whether you're over 50 and looking for love, over 60 and starting all over, or over 70 and looking for a like-minded companion, there are a number of great options for you. I got several messages from younger ladies wanting a fling but I needed something more. The state took everything [of hers and his] and considered all assets to be fruit from the poisonous tree. They use the newest SSL - a standard security technology to secure their site.

Senior Dating Sites Reviews
Try okCupid or POF. Friendship, Casual Dates, Serious Relationships. Search by age, profile, zip, more Our Experts Say: It is very depressing and I wish there were more honest people on these sites and not jerks! Our expert ratings are based on factors such as popularity, usability, value, and success rate of each site. We have a crass commercial culture that is totally about what you look like, how much money you make, the car you drive, the house you live in, etc.
Just think about the quality of their members on site and you will get your daily matches after you finished their scientific and detailed personality questionnaire. Based on the test results and their scientific matching algorithm, you would have big chance to find that significant and ideal other half among the possible matches recommended by them.
And yes, it comes into the finallist since it has a portal especially designed for senior dating. Eharmony could be the most serious site for heterosexuals who are looking for lifetime partners and long term relationships. The scientific matching system on the site makes magic happen and finds you the best matches based on all the well designed questions that one would fill during registration.
With this high quality matchmaking service, it would be really convenient for one to find that perfect other half. By reading its name, we can learn that Seniorpeoplemeet.
Powered by peoplemedia, senior people meet is now a famous brand in senior dating worldwidely. Due to its popularity, it has accumulated a large number of registered members. The site focuses on the age group of 55 to 60 and older, with a 59 percent gender ratio 59 percent female compare to 41 percent male. But like many other sites, fake profiles on their site should be blocked and handled in a more timely manner.
It has accumulated a large database of members from all over the world. It has been designed in a simple way.
Even though it is simple, it has all the necessary features for an online dating site to help members find their match. Ourtime app is also launched for mobile devices. Sounds not that cool if you want a more serious relationship. Designed in a simple way, the first impression for the site is a little bit poor. There is little information you can learn about this site before registration.
Signup on the site is free, but to use their premium search, name search and tab searches for a more thorough search option needs upgraded membership. And yes, communication with other members needs upgraded membership as well. Also, quite a lot user feedback from their members mentioned "customer support is not that helpful or effective".
Advertised as the free senior dating and social networking website for senior personals, it looks better than Seniorscircle. But they have the same issue that seniorscircle has: The other problem is they are not secured by using the https protocol either.
We know a lot of online dating scam are target senior people. We should take a warning and learn some tips to keep online dating safe. Retired with a lot of time, you can finally do something you like for yourself. But like in every stage of our life, love is necessary. You deserve someone special to share and experience with you this wonderful stage of your life. But with retirement and children grown up, it seems that senior people have lost a lot of chance to meet people especially people in their own age group.
There are no more work mates that you have to work with or meet daily. No parents of your children' schoolmates to communicate with. The situation would be worse if you are single. Many senior people start to think "where can I meet local singles in my own age group? An online senior dating site gathers senior singles over 50, 60 and 70 all over the world. With their large member database and strong features on site, it would be easy for you to find the possible matches.
By joining an online senior dating site, you can browse possible matches by location, age and many other criteria according to the site you choose. I had the same done to me and I believe that telling you they met someone else is a way for some women to reject you nicely. So they fabricate the story of meeting someone new. I know that many of these women connect with multiple males at once because it boosts their ego.
I had connected with a few who would ask me a question and I would reply only to wait for them to respond for over an hour to answer each time due to them corresponding with other men. It does not make sense. Is there enough men like this floating around on dating sites, that a fellow like me is easily discarded.
I know how important aesthetics are on dating sites. I try to communicate with ladies who would be in my league. However, dating sites give the ladies the advantage. However, i do realize that ladies have issues regarding security, I do get that.
As a 62 year old woman, I find it near to impossible to meet anyone even remotely within my area who ARE someone I would like to get to know better.
I care nothing for one night stands, nor friends with benefits people. I just am not that type of person. I can do that myself. But a nice companion for dinners and movies would be nice. It seems however that men my age want someone in the bracket. Who does one trust? At this point, after e harmony, Match. I totally understand your comments..
I paiid Our Time 6months met one man and after month talking.. I was so shocked after xoffee I never spoke to him again… So many years younger pics they post… Be honest post current pics.
Hey everyone I was on Our time 3 different times and all 3 times met great guys or so I thought the first only lasted a couple of months he wanted to be possessive. I have decided to reenter the dating game after 15 years of keeping silent and to myself with family.
I just woke up one day and decided at 66, I want to meet a man that has similar likes and dislikes as me. I have a small farm that I dearly love working on and grow all my food, including chickens. It is almost impossible to find a man that likes this sort of lifestyle, much less wants to be involved in it.
The perfect partner for me would certainly be a small farmer that loves the soil and works it with love every day. He would also have to like salt water fishing because next to the soil that is a big love of mine as well. So it is not going to happen for me unless I take the time and pursue this in places where farmers and fishing are prevalent. Therefore, I will begin to go to those farmer days and outings and I will spend lots more time at the beach fishing.
If I meet someone special that is great. Good luck to everyone looking and be safe always. Hi Linda, thanks for your comment. Linda I totally identify with what you said. In up state NY my options are almost non existent Love to fish be in the oods and grow things. As I read your comment,I felt a little ftustrated. I have the same comments about these sites as everyone else.
I was on Farmers Only for several months and experienced much disappointment. In my profile,I stated who and what I was and that I desired to connect with woman who enjoyef rural life. Truly believe most women on that site were looking for a dtugstore cowboy with a new shiny truck. None of the women on Farmers say they wanted to meet a man with rural roots which I found rather odd. You just have to keep turning stones. Strange but unlike most comments here I have found the dating sites overwhelmingly populated by cougars.
The 61 yr old female looking for 25 to 50 yr old men. I no longer frequent any of them since most ladies never respond to any show of interest but keep coming back to view my profile but never leaving a message at all. One thing I am not looking for is more frustration in my life. Marsha Your message is exactly how i feel. Still full time employed and self sufficient, divorced for over 12 years. Not interested in sleeping around. Just want companionship for events, listening to oldies music from the 70s, trips and just exchange experiences and laugh a lot.
But looks like there are NO men going for that. Ive decided to just join cultural, gardening and volunteer groups where I can meet people face to face. However, this article is extremely honest and well written. You have to keep safe and keep playing. Lots of people I know are now part of a twosome. Oh Really am new to all this i have also meet a lady that posted her old pictures when she was young. After reading some of the shared comments, I would like to add my two cents worth.
It does seem to be challenging to meet quality people for me -men that would like to have q good relationship with a good woman Their mouth or pen is moving. What is wrong with getting to know a person first? Finding out if you like each other enough to forsake others and try to see if you two can make a go of it? At our age we should have experience enough life to know what basically is negotiable vs is nonnegotiable.
How about being comfortable with not only who you are, but where you are in life? No, I am not talking about sitting all day in a rocker and playing dead. But , enjoying life with whatever disabilities, lumps bumps, etc. Now a days-there seems to be more inference on sex than anything else.
Sex-when has that ever determine the value of any relationship? Whatever happen to wanting to get to know one another? Which can lead to true friendship and companionship. Do you remember when you could talk to each other about everything and nothing-but still enjoying just being together? How about when you were looking across the room at each other , and sharing that special smile -that special look that said so much?. Yet to others, it said nothing-but to you two ahhh-it was like a secret code that only the two of you knew.
Well, Steve Harvey always says the 90 day rules applies to everyone. Yes Dorene I agree with you as well. I love Steve Harvey and own both of his books on relationships. What he is saying makes a lot of sense. I was in a very bad marriage for 26 years that was hard for me to get out of as my ex was abusive in very many ways. Since I have been out in the dating world I find that everything seems to have changed. But after 26 years I was sure it would be.
When I left my ex and found a gentleman who truly was a gentleman and waited to approach me about being intimate. It may have not been the 90 days but it was a while and we dated for four years.
So now I hope that I can find someone who would at least give the relationship time instead of hopping in the sack. I see a psychologist because of my past and let him know of what I am finding in this new world of dating.
The bottom line is men and there are women as well are not respectful of one another anymore. I wish everyone well with their searches and may God bless you. What a well written post, and I totally agree with everything that you said. What happened to men who respected you for the person you are and enjoyed being in your company for the purpose of conversation and connecting mentally?
Does anyone believe in companionship or friendship anymore? Would love to meet a man with honest values and one who is capable of making a commitment.
Men Do want younger women and younger men want Sugar Mamas! These dating sites have been a joke. Just stumbled upon this site, loving it. Well I just stumbled onto this site too. I appreciate the thoughtfulness and honesty of the posts here Your post is something i could have said too about women.
I think the sad truth is that most people are not capable of having a truly intimate relationship. It seems the older people are, the more it is true.
Most people become more rigid the older they get, and certainly more set in their ways, making them less likely to give up the freedom they have as a single person. I think most of us like the idea of being in a loving relationship. What i have found out is that finding someone who can actually show up when the heat is on and wants to be with me, and i want to be with her is rare, especially being over sixty.
Having a personality and mutual respect is what the foundation should be for any relationship regardless of the age of those involved. It is true that the men are seeking sex….. Just be honest if u want a friend with benefits then let the guy know. If u are not into the guy, pay your own way on the date and move on down the line. No gentleman wants to be considered as an entertainment center at this point in his life and would hope that the woman in his company actually enjoyed his company and was not simply with him for A Night out and a free meal.
Of course, it is my belief that doing the everyday things of life….. Will let us know if we are compatible with one another…. Sitting across from you at some restaurant tells me nothing about you except your table manners. For me at this stage of my life …66…. Best of luck to each of you…. After reading some of the comments about online dating sites I would like to make a comment about Plenty of Fish. I thought it was a really good website until I got kicked off because all of my emails from them kept going in my spam.
Try to get back on there and it is next to impossible. I have written to them several times to see if they could help me get back on. The scammers are everywhere on all of these sites. I was almost scammed 3 times I am ashamed to admit but they are very devious! I am 61 years old and find that most of the men I talk to have nothing but sex on their mind. I think our world is going to hell really quick.
It is very depressing and I wish there were more honest people on these sites and not jerks! Needless to say I am still looking for a good man. In March when I officially retire I think I am going to start looking at activities through churches and community buildings to try to meet people.
It seems to me that would be the only way to meet someone as I am not a bar hopper or nor do I go to clubs. Good luck everyone on finding your soul mate! Kevin Gillham it is good to hear there are good men out there. I am sorry that your marriage ended the way it did. I have stopped going on the online dating sites. I was diagnosed with another health issue that I have confronted and in the process have lost forty pounds and am doing really well.
I know my problems were due to an abusive marriage and now I am feeling more confident about myself. I enjoyed your feedback and hope to hear from you again. Hi Kevin Same thing happened to me.
Hi Kevin, yOu sOund like the man every woman dream of. I bet yOur not alone anymore. This is the First time I visited this site…. And out of curiousity i read many of the comments and the replies… there seems to be quite a bit of confusion about sex and indivuales …. I agree with you on almost E very thing that you said. If you live near or close to , we can bond and explore.. Thanks and God bless! I wish you the best of luck! New also and none of this real sounds like it is even worth the effort.
Thank you very much. I think it more says, well I want to know what I will get for my dollar coffee and of course my one hour of invested time. I hear the women and the men and my view for what its worth sounds like both are a little defensive, with good cause.
You may find a treasure or merely a friend. You will have gotten to know another person. Enough said, no lecture intended. Most men are jerks. Most men get older but not necessarily more mature. Most men never learn how to be friends first with women. Most men are too concerned with sex as if sex is the answer to everything. I was looking for compatibility and connection, for communication, for shared interests and values.
If you had read my profile on OK Cupid, if you had answered a few hundred questions, like I did, it would be easy for you to determine that I was a quality guy. What matters is that you carefully weed out the wheat from the chaff.
You just have to sort out the frogs from the princes. Not all women on these sites are prizes either. There is usually a good reason or two why women are single later in life. I think what our society does in general to men is not conducive to making them good in relationships. Men are told not to cry, not to show emotion, not to be vulnerable. I was just lucky to be born into a culture that rejects that view of men and teaches respect, if not adulation, for women. The larger issue is how men get to be the way they are.
You know the old saying, about the hand that rocks the cradle can change the world? There are good men out there, like me. Sure a lot of us are taken, just like a lot of good women are taken. The time you spend complaining can be better used in searching. Thanks for your comment. It sounds to me that these are sex preditors lurking on the site and their profiles are probably phoney.
Absolutely do not respond to them; rather, please report them to the site. These guys could be very dangerous. There are good and honest people everywhere, some may not be in your location so if you such you have to sacrifice to get them. At 53, I know my best sex years are behind me physically but I still have the desire to have my hands on her curves, lips kissing her in the spots that at least I am attracted to, nape of her neck, as a for instance , etc.
Do you really think you are going to find a best friend who is the opposite sex? Best friends become so … because they have same interests, and through the pursuit of their interests they are for lack a better term, thrust together and their time spent enjoying that interest buys time spent with another which then can blossom into a true friendship.
Not a lot of women are dedicated to football, hunting, etc, the things that men are often found around. If I am seeking a best friend, then I will look in the areas where I am going to have a good time too. Anyways the problem I have become convinced is the true enemy, is how many women cannot get happy with their appearance, not even to the point of when I am very adamant about how much I love their breasts I happen to prefer breasts that are saggy, because to me, those are real breasts, perky just makes me feel like a pedophile , and I use that as an example, it could just as easily be their bottom or legs or whatever.
Point is that if I say it turns me on … take my word for it! And let go like you would if you DID have that body that you seem to think is SO important to have a great sex life. I know its not an answer, just an explanation. We do at least try. I could name the ones which make us men look less flattering but you Ladies know which ones hurt your situation more.
So ya, whether the man admits it or not, and whether he is able to even perform or not, its still about sex. She knows and keeps his secrets, and he loves her for that because again … sadly in our world today, it is THAT important to a man that he be viewed as a MAN, in full and completeness. Lastly , it is true most or many men are POS. Would like to know more so can write me at nelykeoyahoo.
Whereas I support most of that, the complexities of such an agenda are too great. All that counts in this society is money. We have a crass commercial culture that is totally about what you look like, how much money you make, the car you drive, the house you live in, etc.
Heads up for men who are broke: All the while he was a white collar criminal. He finally got caught and went to prison. The state took everything [of hers and his] and considered all assets to be fruit from the poisonous tree. AARP has 30,50,70 age range yet its advertised as over70dating. I sure wish I could find a way to no longer receive email messages about this thread.
I have sent 2 messages to your site, and I never get a reply, and I still get an email every time someone comments. There is no unsubscribe anywhere. Thanks for removing me from the email list. I am with a verrrrry special man who I met through okcupid. There are some good and honest ones out there! If you ladies think you have it bad.
I am 71 and a widow. I too, look a lot younger. I have been on our time for only a short time and had several contacts. Three of them I have met. Only one was close to my age. The other two were 80 and But, like of you said, they want women 10to15 years younger. Would you mind telling me which side you have checked out. Almost dread starting all over again with the new site. I have been on several of the senior dating sites for several months.
I finally figured out that men are not interested in women over 60 no matter how good the women might look. Then they are looking for anyone as a nurse or a purse. Very sad how women our age are so disrespected—even by AARP. Look at the women they feature on their covers. You are wrong GG. You might be right in general terms, but I want to grow old with someone who will be facing the same things at the same time as I will.
I choose a woman too much older than me, and odds are I will first have to watch her suffer through some horrible illness and then have to bury my love. At least not to the ability I could have, when I was their age. I have tried all the date sites and never had any luck. They all tell you what you want to hear and all become lies. Or all want money.
No luck with any or them. Free or not, every senior dating site sucks! They claim and advertise things that are not true! How can we, as seniors, who are disgusted and tired of their lies, bring them down? Is a class suite the answer? Ironically, it seems to be one of the better ones. Virtually all of the sites seem to be run greedy, deceptive owners who do little to prevent fraud and scamming, commit it themselves in their billing practices.
All seem to have clunky or flawed matching functions whether deliberate or not , and other problems, with little if any customer support. Ironically, even sites claiming a religious orientation do this.
I was on one small site that was very honest and well run Science Connection , but they had a very small user base, and went out of business last year.
Sadly, there seems to be no large, honest, well run dating site on the entire web. Getting such a site started in the sea of already dominant, dishonest ones would probably be hard, but if there any honest entrepreneurs out there, I encourage you to give it a go! By the way, I had to chuckle at some a couple of people who left their email addresses, hoping to meet someone like minded here, after having little luck on dating sites. So, what the hey, let me do the same.
I like to get to know a woman before anything else. Thanks, and good luck to everyone. They never restricted membership age anyway, so I guess now they are openly appealing to younger singles. So, one less Internet site for senior singles, altho Our Time was awful anyway.
Another black eye for us senior singles. Dating sites listed above, I used to be on some.. OK Cupid do not favor me and I deactivated my membership, sick of lies.
I got several messages from younger ladies wanting a fling but I needed something more. So we had no chemistry. Anyone that would recommend a better site where I can find my soulmate.
If you find a good website let me know. I too am tired of all the lies and the requests for money. Nothing but lies, or fake profiles. I found one reviews site that might be useful for you. I know that SeniorMatch does not allow members below the age of You can take a look and choose the suitable one for you. I know one review sites for online senior dating http: It has listed the best 5 sites including SeniorMatch and OurTime. I have tried Our Time and Senior People Meet and have not been real impressed and been asked for money from men on both sites.
I am taking a break from the sites for now because it all became to depressing but if I decide to return I will try one of the others. You gotta love it: Check out the SeniorMatch website.
It has a photo of a something woman with a something man. So another slap to senior women. Plus the ages that they allow are 30 years and older. Also want to comment about Our Time. I tried them and hated it because of how it works. And you show know this: Does it look like everyone around you makes it look so simple but you have a hard time with this idea whenever someone new asks you out?
You may be setting about it the wrong method, or you may merely require some dating ideas for ladies that will make the procedure a little simpler. Get tips at http: So depressing and frustrating. I have been on these sites, not for long but, I also noticed that the men seem to want young ladies, , I been on zooks,. If you are paying money for ANY of the other sites, you are likely wasting it. The folks at OK Cupid have devised a series of questions.
The more you answer and the more the people you are looking for answer, the better the suggested matchups. As an example, I am very close friends with a woman I would otherwise have never met. It would be more, but neither of us wants a long distance relationship.
BTW she is 60 and I am By being totally honest about what I was looking for — an activity partner — and about my current relationship, I found three lovely women. The fourth person I met about a year ago now as I write this turned out to be the other love of my life. ALL of them live long distance, like over miles. How does that help me again? I thought it was set up just for scamming.
Once my profile was complete, the first 7 men who contacted me were all scammers. POF is one of the worst. I was on there the other day, thinking I would put up my profile once again. All profiles have been on POF for at least 5 years. Not one has been updated, not one.
Same old photos, same old blah blah blah. What does that tell you? I am looking for someone to have an intelligent conversation with. Someone that can make me laugh and just enjoy life. Stay tuned… We expect to publish it in the next two weeks.
What are the senior site creators thinking? Hi operasinger, I was also on SinglesOver But I feel good so far. But the situation is much better when I am on SO Though there is not that much contacts but most of them are serious contacts that I can tell. Maybe there is some patience needed. If any one knows of a truly focusing on seniors I would like to know. Hi homentx and operasinger, we just published our updated dating sites list.
We have big hopes for Stitch. I recently joined OurTime and have been hugely disappointed. Again, they let all ages join. But reading email only on their site is a disaster and very difficult to manage in the crush of those who put only something in the Subject line and no message. You also get a flood of really dumb stuff from OurTime, notifications if a guy merely looks at your profile, etc.
But worst of all, their Search program is virtually worthless. So I will end my subscription when my 1 month runs out. Have you tried Zoosk? It has men your age. Just as in any site, you have to pick and choose who to learn more about. Zoosk is very expensive, just like Our Time, eHarmony. Free is the best. I had to quit my job for medical reasons. I was in an abusive marriage for 26 years and my self esteem is low enough.
I am under counseling and take medication. The men that talk to me seem to want to just use me also. After 4 dates, he decided to call it quits with no explanation. So, I keep trying, but refuse to pay to find a good guy any longer. Most guys my age want a younger woman, even though most of them are not much to look at or have that much to offer.
A word I absolutely hate! Personally, an older man who thinks he needs a much younger woman, has some serious issues. I stay away from players and fakes. Most men are a-holes, what can I say?
When I was younger, I preferred older women. I prefer women my age, within 10 years. Look for a guy who has a legit reason for being available. Look for a guy who knows how to treat a woman. Look for a guy who has worked on himself, to become a better person. As my current love says, you definitely have to kiss a lot of frogs. You do NOT have to sleep with them.
The problem for women is our age. It is our biggest obstacle because soooooooo many men want younger women. Plus, the so-called singles websites for Seniors are NOT just for single seniors. They let all ages in. So us older women are ignored there, too. The only website that claims to verify their subscribers is Stitch. Thank you Bud for your words.
We know they are out there somewhere, but it is frustrating slashing through the ignorant ones to find the good one. I was shocked after joining to find that out, and the first and only man to contact me is 42 with a 6-year old son. Had the same experience on Match. This was the polar opposite experience when I was in my 50s. I can understand where you are coming from with having to reveal your true age and men not even attempting to look at your profile.
I am in the same boat. I look so much younger than my actual age. So what do I do? Even with lying about my age I am still getting older looking men who are fuddy duddy, big bellies all out of shape and here I am in shape, exercise, eat healthy, look very good in my cloths I am slender and look very youthful.
I can easily pass for 50 years old if not younger. Went to the ER once, gave all my info to the gal.
