Bill Bryson 31st October I must agree with this article and the age search options, they are very good.
I had a girlfreind who I met on a dating site, not Buzz50, who was 15 years my junior. We had very little in common and I welcome the idea of being able to choose your own age range, something that is realy important for us seniors dating.

Dave Patterson 23rd September I have been a member of what I beleive to be the biggest UK Dating site for just over a year now and I know what you mean about 'fancy alogorithms'!

I will keep you updated, watch this space as they say! If you are looking for love and you are over 50 then you have found an ideal place to start your search.

So, celebrate the fact that you are over 50 and maye the most of Buzz Gill Stokes 9th August Is it better to join an over 50s dating site or an all ages dating site? Mike Barrett 11th August I would say a dedicated over 50s, seniors site like Buzz50 Dating is a better bet as you are far more likely to find a partner your own age.
Mila and I are great advocates of dating within your own age range if you want to find real love. Love can be hard work enough without adding in the problems that age differences can bring. Saying that, some age difference relationships work very well but they are rare. Gill Stokes 19th August I joined the Buzz50 dating site after reading this but was surprised to see that there are a number of people under the age of 50 on the site.
Are people under 50 allowed to join? Mike Barrett 24th August Yes, younger people can join as there are many over 50s who are looking for younger partners, both men and women. Researchers have discovered what we older people have known for years; dating is more fun as you get older! The study was carried out using 2 groups of 1, The first group was of people under the age of 50 and the second group, 50 years and older.
The study found that the older group had more confidence and less self-doubt than the younger group, which made them more receptive to the online dating scene, more relaxed and happier in their dating experiences. The over 50s group were far more interested in finding a genuine friend and companion and less interested in the monetary status and looks of their partners than the younger group.
Dating for seniors over 50 is experiencing a boom at the moment, something that we can confirm here at Buzz50 dating. If you happen to be in the over 50s age group then now is a great time to join a dating site such as Buzz50 because you will find many other like-minded members to date with. We seem much more relaxed about things like relationships and dating as we get older and so joining a dating site is easier for us than it is for our younger counterparts.
So if you are older and looking for love, friendship, a new partner or even more then joining Buzz50 dating is for you. It seems that most older daters have a degree of confidence which they mostly lacked in their youth so the experience of online dating can be much more relaxing and therefore rewarding.
Mila and I know of a few Buzz50 Dating members who actually use the site to plan casual dates without a determination to find a partner or lover; but who knows what may lie in store for them? Dave Chapman 5th September I am one of the few who used dating services in the s and I can say that I am definitely more comfortable nowadays with online dating and am happy to tell my friends that I am using online dating. Mike Barrett 5th November I haven't dated for a few years now I found my lovely Mila here on Buzz50 Dating but I would wholeheartedly agree with Dave and this article.
Dating is definitely more fun as you get older! Sending your first dating message can be daunting but there is help and advice available. Your first message is really important because if it does not get a reply then that dating match may be over before it has even begun.
Words such as 'beautiful. Yes, it really can be that simple. Starting your message with a compliment to your prospective partner is a sure-fire winner. No need to gush, just a polite and to the point statement of something that you like about that person will almost guarantee a reply. Having opened up with your compliment, using one of the magic words, keep the rest of your message brief and openly ask for a reply.
Make sure that you send at least 4 messages a day, more if you can. Being a senior dating over 50 can be really rewarding and great fun, especially if you do the right things and put a little work into your dating project. Flattery does get you somewhere, sometimes! There is a limit to how much you fould flower up your messages but there is nothing to stop you being truthful. Have a good look at the profile of the person who you are messaging and pick out a few relevant points which you truly do find interesting.
This will show that you have actually read their dating profile which, believe me, can be a rare thing! You could also look carfully at their dating photos and spot something that others may not see but which you obviously have! Online dating for seniors over 50 really can be great fun and rewarding. Dave Wilkes 6th July I have found that dating sites charge you to send messages; is this fair?
Mike Barrett 23rd August Sorry for the late reply. It depends what you mean by fair. Sites like Buzz50 dating allow you to send messages to your dates but then you need a subscription to be able to receive replies. Dating sites can cost a lot to run properly and the subscription system ensures that there is enough income to keep the site running safely and smoothly.
Dave Chapman 25th August I find that I only get about one reply for every 10 messages that i send out. Is this normal for a dating site of is it just me? Mike Barrett 7th September I would say that this is about right Dave. A lot of people who join dating sites don't come back so it becomes a bit of a numbers game.
It just means that you have to send a lot more messages! We are seeing more and more online dating between couples who have a big age difference. Would you consider dating someone a lot older or younger than yourself? One of the great things about online dating is that you can search using your own criteria, so if you would prefer an older or younger partner then you can say that.
Searching can be done by an age range, so you can, for example, choose an age range of 40 to If you find a year-old and message him or her then it is up to them to reply if they want to. There are many other criteria on which you can search.
So if you are a senior over 50 and know who you are looking for by age range or any other criteria then come along to Buzz50 Dating and give us a try. Age differences are becoming more popular now in online dating because, to put it bluntly, we are all living longer and many daters are realising that the experience that comes with age can make us much more interesting and easier to fall in love with.
So, if you are an older dater and feel like trying to find a younger partner then please do give it a go by specifying the age range that suits you. It is up to the prospective dater whether to accept your advances so, as they say, nothing lost! We over 50 daters have a lot to offer.
Most age differences in daters tends to be the man being older than the woman but there are more and more relationships starting where the woman is older than the man. Age in dating online seems to matter less nowadays, particularly for us over 50 senior daters! Dave Blackwell 28th August My wife is 10 years older than me. We met on a dating site around 12 years ago and I can honestly say that the age difference hasn't caused us any problems, yet!
Mike Barrett 16th November Great news Dave and I also know plenty of daters who have big age differences. The Buzz50 Dating site does at least give you the free choice of what age range you would like to date so you have the final say; as long as people reply to your messages of course!
The first thing to realise is that in this life nothing is for free, so where is the catch with the free dating sites? The biggest savings can be in wages as the paid for sites like Buzz50 Dating have a team of professionals looking after members and weeding out the scammers.
Free sites are often supported by adverts which can be annoying and often led to paid for dating sites! One of the great benefits of a paid for dating site is that you can be more confident that the members are genuine as they have had to give credit details to pay their subscription. Most of the free sites are over-run with either spammers or worse still, romance scammers and hope to make their money through the advertinsing that their free-ness attracts.
If you are looking for a serious dating site then you need to look no firther than Buzz50 Dating. One of the great things about Buzz50 dating is that you can do most things without parting with a penny!
You can join, fill in your dating profile, upload an avatar and other photos plus search, match and message. Only once you feel confident that you are finding the right sort of partner you can then look through the various subscription packages and make your decision.
Peter Beresford 25th June How much are the subscription charges on the Buzz50 Dating site? Mike 26th June Peter Beresford 30th June What about free dating sites? I have heard good and bad reports about them. Mike 1st July There are a lot of things to consider when choosing a free dating site. Paid for sites ask for your credit or debit card details so it is less likely that scammers will join.
The revenue gained by paid for sites funds support teams who can help you to have a better and safer dating experience. If you are a senior over 50 and new to the dating online scene or even a seasoned dater who really wants to know how to succeed then we have some, if not all of the answers here for you.
The first must is to actually join a dating site! Taking that first step can be daunting but with a site like Buzz50 where you have one to one support from either Mila or Mike then you should find things a lot easier. Once you have joined then you can consider that you have attempted and successfully jumped the first and main hurdle, now the easier steps begin.
Photos tell a thousand words and your profile photos can mean even more than that on a dating site. Remember, you will hopefully be meeting the viewer of your photos quite soon and you would be better to impress rather than disappoint them! The next hurdle to jump is a little easier and this is where you complete your profile. Keep away from personal problems and past relationships. Talk about who you are and what you are looking for rather than what you once were.
Live in the present and not the past. Now comes the hurdle that most avoid; making the first moves and contacting others. Do not sit on the sideline and wait for your profile to do the talking.
At least 3 messages a day to start with should get some sort of response but keep at it, every single day. Simply by following these simple steps you will be sure to succeed in online dating over Jane Stephenson 22nd June Can I use an older photo if I don't have it as my main dating profile?
Mike 23rd June I would say that one photo that is older should be ok as the profile viewer would be able to see from the other photos how you look now. If you have a chance to add a title or a comment then something like 'Me a few years ago at my mum's birthday party' would explain the use of it.
Paul Oakes 2nd July I have often seen it said that a full length photo is the best to use rather than a head and shoulders portrait. If you are thinking about looking for a new close friend, soulmate or even a partner then when is the best time to join an online dating site? Some would say anytime but others would say do your homework and preparation first, before jumping in feet-first and maybe floundering and possibly regretting that you started.
The first thing that you need to do is to choose a reputable dating site which has plenty of members in your own area. Before joining it is a good idea to set out what you are looking for and writing down just what you want out of your new partner.
Then get a few recent photos together, write out a brief resume and you are ready to go! You are the best person to know what you want from your dating partner and, just as importantly, what you want to avoid! Starting dating over 50 can be great fun and there is nothing to be scared about. It is best to approach it with a relaxed attitude and the determination to have great fun. So, whatever stage of life you are at, online dating should start now for you!
Mila and Mike started online dating in October , met in November on the Buzz50 Dating site and have never looked back; so if you are looking for a great new friend, partner, lover or even more then now is the time to start online dating. Leonard Davies 20th November I have joined quite a few dating sites that are for seniors or over 50s but have yet to find onw which has many members in my own area. We are all looking for Mr or Mrs Right but just what is the most important characteristic that you look for in a new partner?
Maybe a sense of humour, honesty, looks or good health? Does it have to be a combination of good points or will a few important ones be enough for you? Are they the opposite of your needs or something else? Jackie McDowell 18th November It is as simple as that for me. I have found so many men who on the surface are perfect but once I've got to know them found out that they are far from honest and not who they appeared to be or claimed to be.
