The 3 Best Dating Sites for Singles Over 40
Because dating is complicated - at any age.
It’s normal to feel hesitant about heading online to meet someone. The vulnerability that comes with putting yourself out there, and opening up to complete strangers, is a hard at any age.
But online dating for the over 40 crowd is only getting better - with new features and experiences tailored to meet the needs of singles who may not be as comfortable meeting online.
So if you’re ready to jump into the dating scene and start making real connections, here are the 3 best sites to get you started.
OurTime is a dating site that caters exclusively to the 40+ crowd. With over 1 million members, OurTime has probably the largest 40+ dating pool. If you're looking for a site that has the compatibility matching of a site like Match.com and handpicked daily matches - but without having to scroll through profiles of singles who are twenty years younger - this is a great option.
The site’s best feature is the in-depth profile which can include not just photos but even audio and video messages for an honest first impression. And once you find someone you want to connect with, there are great chat options to easily connect with other members - such as safe messaging, instant chat and mutual matching introductions.
Most of us aren’t tech savvy, or at least not as much as we let on. Luckily, dating sites have never been easier to use. Zoosk has a simple sign-up process that will have you online and searching for matches in minutes.
The site’s intuitive approach to pairing singles is another favorite. It suggests matches based on your behavior on the site to more accurately point you in the direction of singles who fit what you're looking for.
And Zoosk takes safety seriously, with extra security measures like their unique photo verification software, which ensures that whoever you’re speaking to is exactly who they say they are.
Elite Singles' matching methodology aims to connect singles who share the same passions and lifestyle.
Instead of swiping through profiles, the site’s compatibility model combines your personal preferences with a unique personality profile (completed upon sign up) to more accurately recommend 3-7 matches per day. This psychological approach to matching is based on your answers to a wide range of questions about passions, hobbies and your ideal partner.
It's the perfect site for anyone who already knows what they want, but just need a little help finding it.
