Mature Dating on EliteSingles

If you, along with many other mature daters, are finding it difficult to meet fellow singles your age, start improving your chances of meeting someone special by looking online. Mature dating is one of the fastest growing subsections of online dating and at EliteSingles we make it easier for you to meet compatible singles who are looking for long-term love and companionship.

Why EliteSingles is your best choice

Mature dating online is about choosing the site which offers you the best chances of finding a genuinely suitable partner, in an environment where you feel your privacy is respected. That's why at EliteSingles we use a smart profiling system to help introduce you to the right people – this way you can be confident that your personalities are compatible, and your profile isn't visible to every member. We also manually check all profiles, hide inactive members, and have a great customer care team to ensure you have a safe, comfortable environment in which to meet your match.

Your own pace

Do you, along with many other senior singles, feel that dating now is completely different than how it was in when you were in your 20s and 30s? For some - moving on from the loss of a partner or dating after divorce - can be a daunting experience; the key here is to go at your own pace. As we get older we have a firmer idea of who we are, and what we need in a partner – dating should fit into your life, not disrupt it. As a result there is a noticeable honesty in senior singles’ profiles, stressing the importance of compatibility, this, in turn, is a major reason for mature daters’ online success.

Whether you’re looking for love or companionship, by having clear relationship aims, being open and honest in your search, and using our personality test to help find someone truly compatible, you stand the best chance of finding that someone special.

Forward thinking

While it’s important to go at your own pace, it’s equally important to be positive and forward thinking in your approach to mature dating online. We’ve all had negative experiences in our lives or been hurt at some stage, but it’s vital to not bring this in to new relationships and connections – at least not right at the start! In a study by the American Associated of Retired Persons in 2003, both male and female singles aged 55+ cited “dating partners with a lot of baggage” as one of the biggest problems faced when mature dating.2

Creating a positive profile will engage other members and encourage them to contact or respond positively to you. The same applies for those all important first dates. Keep it light, bright and engaging and you’ll be well on your way to dating success.

At EliteSingles we offer an ideal mature dating service. Our smart profiling, based on both an initial personality profile and your individual search criteria, is designed to help users meet those with similar ambitions and values. While this helps users browse suitable members, our team also manually reviews all profiles and actively removes those not genuine, to ensure contact is only made by those with genuine intent. Our customer care team is also there to provide support at help at all stages of your online dating journey.

With almost a third of all Premium Members on our site aged over 50 and a 39% yearly growth in the number of over 55s3 using online dating in the UK finding the perfect partner with EliteSingles is easy, safe, and designed with your needs in mind.
