Over 50 Dating – Find Love No Matter Your Age or Stage!

Online dating is a wonderful and interesting experience to have at any age but if you’re a single over 50 it can be particularly great. While the concept might seem a little intimidating at first, joining the right dating site will open you up to a community of like-minded and compatible singles. If you’re ready to explore over 50s dating sites, read on to learn more about how EliteSingles is the perfect website for you.

With the average age of people getting a divorce in Australia increasing by five years since 1997 (45.5 for men and 42.9 for women), it should be no surprise that there are now plenty of singles in the over 50 age bracket. And while in the past online dating might’ve been looked at as risky or unusual, times have definitely changed! These days, those interested in over 50 dating have a plethora of online dating options to choose from, though finding the right one is still as important as ever.

Over 50 Dating with EliteSingles

At EliteSingles we firmly believe dating in your 50s can be a fun experience. Dating in your 20s and 30s can also be great but this is often the time when singles feel pressured to meet a partner with whom they can get married and have children. It’s also a period of your life where career can be a major factor, working hard to move up the ranks and secure more senior positions and a better wage. When you reach your 50s, many of these pressures have lifted and although they’re probably still important to you, you are likely have a more relaxed approach to dating as an over 50 single than a 25 or 30-year-old single.

Of course, over 50 dating can present some interesting challenges, purely because of the life experience you bring to the table. Whether it’s emotional hurt from a previous relationship, stagnant ideas about how a relationship should work or grief from the loss of a loved one, older singles sometimes doubt whether they can or should get back in the dating game. And, while these could present challenges in a new relationship, it’s something that your match will also be dealing with, so it’s no excuse to deny yourself what could be an amazing opportunity.
