The world of online senior dating is truly your oyster.

You can choose the type of person that you’re looking for and we’ll help direct you to the best sites to find them.

We’ve tested the big sites, as well as some promising newcomers.

So, how do you put yourself out there and make new connections in the over-50 dating scene?

When it comes to dating, it can be challenging no matter what your age.

The online dating scene is a bit of a jungle, with people claiming to be who they aren’t (younger, mainly) and potential matches getting stuck in endless email conversations before ever meeting.

But with promising new sites launching all the time, it’s becoming easier to navigate the landscape and find the right fit for you, whether you’re looking for companionship, a lifelong lover or a fun date for the weekend.

For some, whether internet savvy or not, the idea of beginning a new relationship through a senior dating site is completely uncharted territory.

There can be many natural concerns to overcome, especially if you find yourself single again after the death of a spouse or divorce later in life. You probably know about the big online dating sites.

When it comes to dating after 60, it often feels like women face a choice between intimacy and independence. Certainly, many of the women in the Sixty and Me community have pushed back whenever I have raised this topic. We all want love in our lives, no matter what age we are!

But maintaining healthy relationships – romantic and otherwise – becomes even more important in our 50s, 60s and beyond.
