My 66-year-old mom ventured into online dating for the first time a few years ago, and several of her friends are giving it a try as well. A common concern among them seems to be choosing the right site, though. They want one that’s easy to use, has millions of people within their same age range, and is known for creating successful dates and relationships — the holy trinity of senior dating.
The good news is folks like my mom’s friends don’t have to make this decision all on their own because we’re here to help them out. Our 10 Best Fast-Growing Mature Dating Websites meet all of these requirements and then some!
With more than 13.5 million visits a month and counting, Match.com is the fastest-growing dating website, period. This includes the senior single audience. It only takes a couple of minutes to sign up and fill out your information, and then you’re on your way to meeting like-minded people who can you relate to you and who are at similar points in life.
eHarmony’s reach is incredibly impressive — they have members in over 150 countries and more than 15,000 people take their famous 29-dimension compatibility test every day. Relationship-minded mature men and women will love eHarmony, plus the site is super easy to use no matter which type of device or browser you’re on.
EliteSingles sees 290,000+ users every month, with 65,000 new people signing up every week, and it’s all very targeted: highly-educated singles looking for a long-term partnership, making this site very popular among seniors. More than 82% of EliteSingles’ members are university-educated, holding either a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate degree.
OurTime is quickly gaining traction in the senior dating community because they’re exclusively for people 50 and over. More than 1.4 million mature visitors a month check out the site, and they love the fact that the clean interface and intuitive search functionality make the online dating process as simple as possible.
If meeting someone within the same age range and who has the same religious beliefs as you are both equally important, you’ll definitely want to turn to ChristianMingle. Every single member is a Christian in some capacity, and a majority of the site’s paid user base is over 55 — it’s a win-win situation!
On UKMatureDatingSite, you’re only three steps away from dating success: 1) Register 2) Search 3) Find a Date. Their user base consists of thousands of singles from England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, ranging in ages from 40s and 50s, to 60s and beyond, and every member is reviewed by the team to make sure they’re real. UKMatureDatingSite even has a mobile-friendly version, so you can date on the go.
One of the largest and best mature dating websites in the U.K. and Australia, Single and Mature provides a high level of service that can’t be beat. Not only can new members send an introductory message for free, but support agents are available to help with any issues you may have and offer expert dating advice. No matter if you’re looking for friendship, casual dates, or a long-term relationship, this dating site for mature singles will lead you to it. “We’re not an impersonal corporation, but rather people who really want to help singles over 40 find someone to enjoy life with. We give tips on how to achieve this, and we’re not happy until a customer has left the site after finding love (as long as they keep in touch with us!),” according to Single and Mature.
Mature Singles Agency started as a personalized matchmaking service that expanded into an online mature dating site after receiving such positive feedback from clients. And they stick with the same methods that worked before — using a cutting-edge algorithm that creates highly compatible matches based on what users say in their profiles and the questions the site asks. “We believe that everyone deserves to have someone special in their life. Sometimes people just need a little help when they are ready, and we get a lot of pleasure from performing that role, and we happen to be very good at it!” Mature Singles Agency said.
Click Matures has a casual, open-minded atmosphere, and the people who run the site are in the exact same stage of life as their users. Thanks to targeted search features, a one-of-a-kind Dating Protector Profile System, and a dedicated customer support crew, you’ll find a compatible and trustworthy match in no time. Click Matures elaborates: “We’re operated entirely by the same age group we’re targeting, so we understand being older on today’s singles scene can be challenging. That means we’ve devised all our site features especially for the mature user — you can even filter your searches and be specific about what you’re looking for, so you don’t have to waste time trawling through hundreds of unsuitable matches.”
Just as much of a social network as a mature singles dating site, Older Hearts was founded by a widower who wanted to help senior men and women in similar situations as him find friends, not only romantic partners. In addition to dates, tons of outgoing members (ranging in ages from 50 to 92!) will meet up for group events or volunteer to do favors like pet sit. “We have a huge success rate in terms of people meeting long-term partners and we put that down to the fact that we tend to attract good-hearted people looking for commitment,” the team told us.
Aging shouldn’t hold anyone back in life or in love — it certainly isn’t for my mom and her friends. So if you’re a mature single, we suggest taking the online dating leap. And, thanks to the list above, you have some fantastic sites to turn to!
