Browse Members In Your Postcode. Why Try Mature Dating Sites? Mature Dating Is Here To Stay Ever heard of the saying "You're as young as you feel" Well, this quote is true, especially when it comes to mature dating.
Older Dating Has Become Mainstream In the past, dating had always been for the younger crowd - people in their 20s and 30s were the most prevalent age groups that engaged in meeting other people through the internet. Mila and I are in constant touch with many daters and are so pleased with how well so many of you are doing.
What helps enormously is the way that scammers are dealt with on the Buzz50 Dating site. Members are also really quick to report suspect scammers which also helps to keep our friendly site safe and fun.
So, have you taken the plunge and joined the swelling numbers of over 50s who are joining in with the Dating Game? Mila and I know of a few daters who use the dating site as a way of arranging meetings, days out and interesting meals! There is nothing wrong with this if you make your intentions clear from the outset and who knows, you may meet another who you 'click' with!
Mila and I have had a few messages about this; using dating sites as 'meet-up' places; some of them positive and some not. What I would say and agree with is that the Buzz50 Dating site is clearly a dating site and should be used for that purpose. On the other hand, dating in the past did used to start with casual meetings, a meal, a day out and so on. Dating can take many forms and this is but one of them!
Mila and I predict that senior dating, or dating for over 50s will see a massive increase during Spring and Summer this year, We seniors have so much more spare time now and have thrown off the 'stigma' of online dating once and for all.
Many newspapers and other media are full of stories of how we older daters have used online dating successfully and that give us the confidence to give it a go ourselves. Top of the list are words like love, fun, friends, laugh and family whereas you should avoid money, past, marriage, divorce and split. All to obvious you may think but may online daters simply pour out their emotions when completing their profile without understanding the real effect that their words have on their prospective dates.
One piece of advice is to list out some profiles which attract you and see if you can work out what words are common between them. Great photos are at the heart of a successful dating profile and so if you can couple those with some attracting words then you may be off to a good start!
Honesty should be ar the heart of your dating profile as so many daters exaggerate so much when describing themselves which does not go down well at all with prospective partners. Words are what we use to describe ourselves and of course to chat up our prospective partners. Choose your dating profile words really carefully, have a look at the profiles of others as well as taking some of the advice above. If you are looking for romance, love, a new partner or even more then the words that you use are worth choosing carefully.
Honesty is sadly lacking in some dating profiles but we can guarantee you that if you are honest then it will pay dividends in the very near future for you.
Most people can sniff out a fib or a tall story so to read an obviously honest dating profile can be a real turn-on for your prospective dates! Try it out and let us know. One of the great benefits of being honest with the words you use and the photos you post is that you can go on your dates confident that your Mr or Mrs Right want what you are and are going to get just what they want with no surprises.
One recent survey showed that more people lied on their dating profiles than did not! The most popular things lied about were height, weight, age and income. Now if all four were false then your prospective dater would be very disappointed! I always come back to dating profile photos, many of which are quite a number of years old.
We are senior daters so why do we need to show photos when we were younger? What is the point? Our dates already know we are older so let us at least show a recent photo. Imagine how deflating it must be on a first date to see that your partner is even older than you thought!
On the other hand, just think how good you will feel when your prospective dates sees you as good as you photos or, hopefully, even better. I am not suggesting that you should put on unflattering photos but I would say that if you dress your best, wear your best smile and behave like a winner when you first meet then your first impressions will indeed impress.
Dating can and will be great fun. Dave Pearson 26th November I have changed lots of the words on my profile after reading this and will report back here after a week or two. The proof of the pudding will be in the eating as they say! Mike Barrett 27th November It will be really interesting to get your real life report about this subject Dave!
I feel confident that what you write in your dating profile does have a big influence on your visitors, along with your photos of course. A dating guru has urged people not to date people who are considerably older than themselves as an easy get-out. Many of us will know couples where there is a big age differences and in many cases these relationships are working really well. What Mila and I have said on many occasions is that it is not a good idea to introduce unnecessary hurdles into what is always a difficult proposition, finding a perfect partner or mate.
So perhaps the answer is to actively search for partners in your age range first and to exhaust all the possibilities before giving up and going for an older guy or woman. Online dating can be great fun and searching is one of the best parts.
Added by Mike 16th October I have had quite a few messages saying that age does not matter at all in dating and that I should not have written or published this article. I stand by its contents and still firmly believe that it is better to find a dating partner of your own or a similar age if at all possible. More members are contacting Mila and I about the age range search options, saying how great it is that we can search for dating partners who are outside of our own age range.
It is then, of course, up to the other person whether they respond after they see the age difference between them and you!
Having an older partner can also have its advantages. An older partner may be more financially stable than a younger one. An older partner may be on their own rather than having children to worry about. An older partner may be more experienced in many ways which can help a relationship to run more smoothly. So, when choosing your new dating partner there are many things to consider when deciding what age range to go for.
This subject will not go away; in fact it is being discussed more and more nowadays. I think that this is partly because we are living for so much longer now, have more leisure time and expect far more out of life! Online dating has also made it far easier to 'test the water' as you can simply search for your ideal date by age range as well as many other factors and then it is up to your prospective date whether they want to reply to you or not. Nothing lost as they say.
Age range searching on a dating site such as Buzz50 Dating is a great way to 'test the water'. You can specify any age range that you want your partner to be in and it is completely up to them if they want to reply. If they approve of the age difference between the two of you, whatever it is and in whatever direction then they can respond to you. If not then not!
Dating and who you date, senior, over 50 or otherwise is completely in your hands. This topic seems to come in waves! We now seem to have a rush of women dating much younger men; maybe to redress the balance! Yet again I must say that having an age range as a main search filter is such a great help for those of us who want to find others who do want to date much older or younger partners.
We would suggest that you first filter only by age range and then add other things so that you are not being too selective and ruling out too many possible daters! Jenny Wilson 17th October My late husband was nearly 15 years my senior and although we had a fantastic relationship there were many areas where our age difference showed. Music was one, there were very few artists or groups who we both liked which was a shame.
They weren't deal breaking problems but they did upset the normal day to day life so if there is a next time to date then I will probably try to find a partner closer to my own age. I like the idea of being able to specify an age range in my searches. Mike Barrett 22nd October Great comments Jenny and yes, being able to search for your dating partner by age range is a great thing. Bill Bryson 31st October I must agree with this article and the age search options, they are very good.
I had a girlfriend 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 really important for us seniors dating. Mike Barrett 23rd November I have seen couples with wider age differences who do seem to make a go of it but they are under more pressure than your average couple. You may have joined one of the many senior dating sites for over 50s that claim to be able to match you up with a perfect partner using fancy algorithms run on their computers.
As well as putting you in control of who and what you are looking for it also then does give you suggestions as well. Searching can be done using all sorts of filters, including, age, build, location and loads of others.
If you are looking for the partner, lover or companion of your dreams then with any luck you will have a good idea of what characteristics they will and won't have and will enjoy your searches for a great date! Try it out here at Buzz50 Dating. Be the dating site searcher and not the searched! Searching for your perfect date can be fun as well. Now that we are over 50 we mostly know what we want from a new partner and also know what we don't want, which makes the dating game even more enjoyable and hopefully successful.
Dave Patterson 23rd September I have been a member of what I believe to be the biggest UK Dating site for just over a year now and I know what you mean about 'fancy algorithms'! A large number of my computer generated matches just don't suit me at all but I can see why the computer matched them. I have tried out your search here and believe it to be a refreshing step backwards where it puts the searcher back in control of their destiny.
Well done Buzz50 dating! Mike Barrett 3rd November ; Late in replying - sorry! Yes Dave, I agree that being in control of dating searches is much more rewarding and in my experience, successful Comment: Dave Patterson 22nd November Thanks for the reply and the email Mike, great to be able to speak directly to the boss-man of a dating site as I have found this almost impossible with other sites unless they are wanting me to pay something!
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. Probably the best thing about Buzz50 is that we are owned and run by over 50s who really know what they are talking about.

Here at Buzz50 we hold your hand every step of the way if that is what you want.

So, celebrate the fact that you are over 50 and make 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.
