Best Senior Dating Sites & Apps

Everyone needs a partner. The need for a partner to share the joy of life with is very evident. It is why when you pass a certain age and you are still single, you start to wonder if you will ever find love again. It is also true for seniors since the fear of ending up lonely and spending the rest of their lives on their own is one of the biggest fears of seniors. The problem is that sometimes, there are not as many opportunities to meet someone new in social situations for seniors. That is when online dating steps in to create new opportunities. Following up, we will introduce some of the best websites and apps that help seniors find love.

Best Online Dating Apps for Seniors

Below are the apps we think seniors will find best if they decide to date again. These apps are available for Android and IOS, and some of them even have a downloadable desktop version. Normally, these apps are considered the best apps for seniors who look forward to online dating.

Zoosk

Best Senior Dating Sites & Apps

Zoosk is not specially designed for seniors but is especially popular with them. This app has more than 40 million members all around the world. One of the main reasons it is so popular is that it is gamified and has a user-friendly and simple interface.

Zoosk offers a free trial to users. But with a basic account, all users can do is explore the options and like other single people. So, messaging someone you are interested in is not an option unless you pay for the subscription.

Available on: Android, iOS

OkCupid

Since 2004, more than 50 million senior users have been using this app to find love. Downloading the app, creating an account, sending and receiving messages are free on this application, meaning you will get on well with a basic account. But the app has some features that only premium members can use.

OkCupid is LGBTQ+ friendly since it supports various genders and orientations. The profiles are based on questions about personality and interests. And what is more interesting, this app was created by students from Harvard University, which makes you want to try this app.

Available on: Android, iOS

Bumble

Best Senior Dating Sites & Apps

Another popular senior dating app is Bumble, a swipe-based app that lets women take the initiative to make the match by swiping on the man they find attractive. But this does not mean this app gives dating opportunities to heterosexual couples only. Same-sex couples can also use this app to swipe and like their potential partners.

Bumble is completely free to download and mainly free to use, except for some premium upgrades like extending the 24-hour time limit for replying to chat requests.

It is also worth mentioning that besides a dating app, Bumble has two other apps for making friends and connecting with networks. We can say that Bumble is proof of the effect of socializing and using technology to avoid loneliness.

Available on: Android, iOS

Coffee Meets Bagel

Best Senior Dating Sites & Apps

If an app allows you to make endless matches and contact an infinite number of partners, chances are you will never be able to make a serious relationship out of that app. It is not the case with Coffee Meets Bagel. This app allows you to like only five profiles a day. Coffee Meets Bagel is, as the app itself claims, designed for creating meaningful relationships.

The application was released in 2012. It is free to download, and basic actions are available on a free account. But some of the options, like making additional matches, are only available for you if you purchase the premium membership.

Available on: Android, iOS

AARP Dating Site

AARP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to seniors in the U.S.A. This organization also has a dating website for seniors.

This fascinating online dating service has a “How About We” section, in which people enter a message and an offer to go on a date of their choice. For example, you enter, “How about we go take a walk in the park?” Someone who finds this idea attractive messages you and joins you on a walk in the park. Is there anything better than this? AARP dating site is suitable for anyone dating over 50 years old.

This article is very important because it promotes the right way of thinking. When my 67-year-old brother said that he wanted to date a woman about his age he met in dance class, her sons disagreed and clearly said that he’s too old for this. Dating is not only for young people. I don’t know why people think like that. This whole thing made my brother very frustrated.

To be honest, I don’t know anything about dating websites and apps. I don’t quite understand how they work, but I know Silver Singles to be an excellent one. My best friend from high school, who was widowed five years ago, got married again to a wonderful man, thanks to Silver Singles!

I met my husband online. It is a bit embarrassing to admit, but we met on tinder. At that time, none of us was looking for something serious. But then we met, and everything just clicked. Even against our will, our feelings grew stronger, and our relationship moved forward. It’s been 21 years since I married this man, and I’m still so wonderfully happy. Who knew an app like tinder could change my life? So I say, don’t hold yourself back when it comes to online dating. Maybe your other half is waiting to click with you 🙂

I don’t know; I’ve always been too picky when it comes to dating. I couldn’t even get along with my classmates and, later in life, my coworkers. How to trust someone you meet online? Although I never admitted it before I turned 50, it’s not a good idea to live alone forever. Last year, my nephew suggested online dating; he suggested Our Time. Based on his researches, it’s not the worst dating website, and apparently, I have a chance to find a good match, but I’m not sure if it’s the right way to start a romantic relationship.

Yes, online dating is excellent if it works well for both people. But I am always afraid of trying it for myself. My uncle met his wife online. At first, they were happy because, on paper, they were perfect for each other. But then things went south, and they got separated. My father used to tell his brother that things happened the way they did because they used online platforms for knowing each other. To be honest, I don’t entirely believe it. But the whole thing had its effect on me, and now I can’t trust people online.

These apps are great for making new relationships. Some seniors like me are embraced to create new relationships after losing my wife. So, dating apps are helping us to find a proper partner without fear.

Two of my friends found their lovers on Instagram, and they are crazy happy, so I would say I have a fairly positive attitude towards online dating.
I prefer online dating because it is easier to express all different types of personalities and beliefs without being worried about what people think or how they will judge you.
However, it would be best if you always kept safety in mind, which is a valid point both for online and offline dating.
You have to remember that there are a lot of creeps out there, and It’s important not to let your guard down all the way….

I’ve been on Bumble for four months now and have met many guys, most of them in their 50s.
Contrary to popular belief, we do use technology.
I set my age preferences up to 80, and I’ve noticed men as old as 75 on the site. Now, 75 is way too old for me, but it shows that these sites can attract an older user base…
Not sure how interested I’d be in dating someone who did not know how to use these apps; it’s not rocket science!!
I prefer to go out with a person who is still open to learning…

Sad to say, after investigating five dating sites, mostly free and two over 50 that were not free, I am not impressed!!
Huge waste of money.
Seniors get scammed so easily, so I’m going to suggest you go to church and meet people at one of their socials or picnics they’ve suggested, so you get to see people in the light of day and ask them out…
In some places, AARP has social events too, and sometimes the county will have a group of seniors who socialize…
Dating is popular. You don’t have to pay to meet people.

My friend is recently widowed, and he boasted that he joined a dating site recently. He said that he was getting a lot of requests to go out on dates….
I believe that single seniors are very vulnerable to gold diggers, both male and female. It can be dangerous…
Never give any date or person you meet any money….
Just be very cautious. Tell family members where you are going and meet in a public place until you get to know people.
There are still churches, clubs, classes, meet-up groups and friends; old-fashion dating is still lovely.
