Senior dating services allow people over the age of 50 meet like minded members of the opposite sex for friendship and romance. The traditional view was that “old people” were past the need for companionship and sex. But, we have left those thoughts behind. As baby boomers move into the over 50 crowd, they are changing the way we see ageing. And, senior dating services are emerging to fill the void. Senior dating services operate just like any other online matchmaking site except that the marketing is directed at people who are over 50. Participants follow the same patterns to get registered. First you need to select a service. Most senior dating services have either a free trial period or a limited service agreement. A free trial period allows you full access to the site for a week or so. A limited service agreement allows you to upload your profile and pictures but not send emails. In either case, you will need to pay a monthly fee in order to take full advantage of the service over the long run. Once you have found the service that is right for you, you will need to complete a profile. The complexity of the profile varies from site to site and may be a main consideration in which service you choose. You want to find the balance between being able to determine who the best matches are for you through their revelation of information and your need to protect your privacy. To have the best chances of getting dates on senior dating services, you should upload one or more photos of yourself. Most people like to see who they are going to be meeting ahead of time. Studies have shown that singles with photos on their profiles get 20 times more contacts than those without the pictures. Think about what message your photo conveys. You may want to consider having a professional photo with photo touch ups done so you can (literally) put your best face forward. Next, you need to start contacting other people on the dating service. Usually you do this by sending them emails or private messages through the site itself. They will read your email and look at your profile before responding You can filter the list of people by many factors including age, religion, region, income, children, etc. You can also ask to see only people with photos (which is why it is so important to upload a photo of your own.) You should also start receiving emails from other members of the service around this time. When you find an email that is intriguing, you can look up the sender’s profile for more information. If this is someone you would like to chat with further, you can reply to the email. It is not considered impolite to not reply. You have the choice in the matter. Once you start a dialogue with someone, it will probably be through email or private messaging at first, move to telephone calls, and only if there is a good reason to, move to an actual date. Senior dating services are great in this way because they remove some of the “first date” anxiety because you can feel you already know the individual. If you are a single man or woman over the age of 50, consider using senior dating services to help you find a partner to grow old with.
