Senior dating sites have become increasingly popular among the over-60 crowd, which is growing larger every day.

As of 2012, the world’s over-60 demographic has reached 809 million people. That accounts for 11% of the world’s population. Business Insider estimates those numbers to grow to 2 billion people and 22% by 2050. According to the US Census, single seniors make up more than 17.7% of the US population.

That’s a huge demographic that can sometimes feel neglected in the dating world, particularly online dating. To help them out, we’ve compiled a list of 11 dating sites that are great for singles 60+. We’ve reviewed the success stories, matchmaking features, and pricing models of these dating sites and determined which can best help seniors find companionship and love.
