Seniors confronting the dating scene have unique advantages and disadvantages when compared to younger generations. The advantages include experience and self-confidence found lacking in many young relationships. The disadvantages are that for some seniors, they haven’t been single in many years and are learning again what it’s like to date.
For the elder interested in meeting a new friend, there are sites specifically designed for single seniors.
Those sites include:
Of course, more general dating sites, like Plenty of Fish, include listings for people of all ages.
Opportunities outside the internet are also becoming more available. For those familiar with speed dating, an event where numerous singles meet in a specific location to spend several minutes with each person to determine compatibility and future date potential, some venues are catering speed dating events to elders. One such event was held recently in Central City, Colorado.
Life is short, so if you’re a single senior looking for a friend – just do it.
