Online Dating For Over 50


Looking for love? These are the six best dating apps and sites for over 50s

1. eHarmony

eHarmony was founded more than two decades ago, long before dating apps became popular.
It was the first dating site to use an algorithm, and over 33 million users used the platform in its first ten years.
The company’s top statistics aren’t bad: they’ve helped over two million individuals find love and claim to be the site most likely to lead to a happy relationship.
We think it’s worthwhile to sign up.

2. Lumen

After achieving success in the United Kingdom, Last year, Lumen made its debut in Australia. The app set out to be more than just another “seniors dating app,” catering to individuals over 50.
Lumen understands the importance of first impressions. Their first communication dubbed the “icebreaker,” asks users to transmit more than 50 characters, skipping the standard “hello” and “hey.”
Another important concern for individuals over 50 is men’s desire to date younger women. “Men desire a woman 10 years younger,” one dating app user lamented, “therefore I’m only getting messages from individuals who look like my kids’ grandfather.”
Lumen’s 50+ age limit limits those looking for 30-year-olds. Users also can’t lie about their age.
“When you sign up, the app asks you to take a selfie. You can’t get any further if you can’t take a selfie,” Charly, founder of Lumen, told Now To Love.
“We cross-reference 600 points on your face to check you’re the same person in the photo and it roughly guesses your age.”

3. Elite Singles

Elite Singles, which is powered by one of Europe’s “top online dating services,” is for Australians looking for a “long-term commitment.”
Rather to sifting through hundreds of profiles, Elite Singles’ matchmaking approach narrows your dating pool to people with whom you’ll truly connect on a meaningful level.
Elite Singles also keeps track of its users’ profiles on a regular basis.
“We curate the site by verifying profiles, eliminating inactive members automatically, and proactively removing those we feel aren’t serious.”

4. Hinge

Think of Hinge as the less swipe-happy version of the popular dating app, Tinder. One of the newest dating apps on the market, Hinge focuses on personality by asking users to answer three questions about themselves, which are then refreshed with new questioned each month.
It also uses a Nobel Prize-winning algorithm to help determine your best match. Free members are limited to a certain number of “likes” each day, so they must be more selective in their matches.
Hinge just developed a new function to help people move from text to video calls when dating in self-isolation.
“Users may quickly signal when they are ready for a virtual date and shift from messaging to meeting digitally for the first time to get to know each other better,” according to the ‘Date From Home’ feature.


Having first launched in 1997, RSVP has been connecting singles for over 20 years – so, they must be doing something right.
While the site isn’t age-specific its users average at 35+ years of age. They also have specific RSVP sites for both mature dating and seniors, catering to older demographics.
RSVP offers one of the most specific search capabilities of any site too, so you can look up members according to education or even eye color – for those who know they have a “type”.

6. Concha

Concha is the newest dating app on the market, and its major advantage is that it allows you to learn from other people’s failures.
Concha wants people to talk before they text, focusing on real interactions. It’s ideal for folks who like face-to-face communication yet still wish to date online.
“Once you’ve matched with a potential love interest, you can phone them (at the appropriate time) or leave a voice message,” they say.
