While no one can replace the love you shared with a deceased spouse, it is never too late to find someone else that you can love.

If you aren’t interested in falling in love, that is perfectly fine as well, because when you go online to meet senior singles, you can just specify on your dating profile that you are looking for something platonic and that’s all.

What stands out as the most important aspect of a person when determining if you may be a potential match? With Tinder (and pretty much every other online dating system on the market today) the photo is all-important.

And always being the lone single person when your married friends want to catch up for dinner starts to become a little tiresome.

More than any other activity, dinner is where older adults feel the isolation of being alone most strongly.

They may have been married and started a family of their own, so when they are dealt a devastating blow that leaves them single again, whether it is the death of their spouse or a divorce, they may feel like they will never find love again. More and more senior singles are realizing that they’ve got a lot of life left to live and love to give, so they decide to go out and try the senior dating scene.

It is understandable that the idea of meeting singles can be a little nerve wracking, however it doesn’t have to be that way.

Like a lone wolf trapped on a floating iceberg, how will you ever return to your wolf pack and find a hot wolf-mate to love? When you date a man or a woman, the feely-weelies and sickening lovey-doveyness at…

With the obsession that today’s media has with youth and appearance, you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s only the young who are looking for companionship, that dating is a young person’s game. Which of the following images do you think the media is more likely to use to accompany an article on online dating? At the same time, more older adults over 55 find themselves single and looking, either through divorce or the tragic loss of a husband or wife they loved for many years.

Once you get into your fifties and beyond, the actual number of your age becomes less and less significant.

Far more important is what shape you are in, how healthy you are, what activities you can do. If you’re active and like going for long walks and playing golf, you’re going to be much more interested in the fit and energetic 82-year-old who can share your activities than the 65-year-old waiting on a hip replacement who can no longer walk long distances. The other stunning aspect of dating for young people is how much looks matter.

This is why, for most older adults, a dinner date is the most important first step towards finding companionship.
