Online dating can be a daunting proposition for senior citizens. More technologically-savvy than ever before, seniors around the country are turning to dating sites to find lasting love and companionship. Maybe you’re senior yourself looking to try out online dating for the first time? Perhaps you’re curious about the right online community for your single mom or dad? Take a look at my picks for the five most senior-friendly dating sites.

5. SILVER SINGLES

Silver Singles was one of the first dating sites created with seniors in mind, founded way back in 2002. Now a part of the Spark Networks, one of the largest dating site conglomerates in the world, SilverSingles.com is a massive site that can feel busy and even SPAMmy at times, but it has a large membership. The one stand-out downside of Silver Singles is that the site’s open to anyone 18 and older which means there’s more than a fair number of singles seeking May-December romances.

4. CHRISTIAN MINGLE

Christian Mingle is the only site that made our list that’s not geared just towards seniors. Over 75% of Americans self-identify as Christians and the number is likely even higher in older generations. Already one of the “safest” and simplest dating sites online, ChristianMingle.com is a welcoming respite for seniors who may be weary of the dangers of the web. If you’re a Christian senior or you know spirituality is important to your single parent this may be the dating site that gets you over the hump.

3. SENIOR PEOPLE MEET

Senior People Meet is the most traditional dating site to make this list as well as one of the largest of its kind. Members pay a nominal monthly fee to gain access to all features: flirts, messaging, and extended profiles. While SeniorPeopleMeet.com may be overwhelming for seniors new to the online dating experience it’s a great site for experienced daters to use when looking to narrow the field. With hundreds of thousands of visits a month and an average member age of 53, Senior People Meet is the quintessential online dating site for this demographic.

2. AARP DATING

The best and worst thing about AARP Dating is that you have to be a member of the organization to utilize it. This feature maintains only seniors use the interface which itself is simple and cleanly designed. The How About We? juggernaut actually owns the site so seniors will find a different experience here than on other dating websites. Simply put, singles suggest a date activity (“How about we go for a fishing trip?”) and see who bites. Easy for even the least-techie senior.

1. SENIOR MATCH

Senior Match is the largest dating site of its kind and they don’t allow members under 30 years old which weeds out some of the clutter for seniors only seeking peers. The site’s remarkably well connected through social media, too, so seniors already using Facebook and Twitter will find it an easy transition. SeniorMatch.com is simple, clean, easy to navigate and makes a great first dating site to suggest to a single parent. If you’re looking for the biggest online dating community for baby boomers and seniors, Senior Match may be it.
