What is the SilverSingles story?

When it comes to senior online dating, SilverSingles is one of the leading players. We should be – our dating site has been around for 17 years and counting! SilverSingles started life as PrimeSingles.net in 2002, changing to Single Seniors Meet in 2009 and, finally, to SilverSingles in 2011, when it became part of the renowned dating group Spark Networks, Inc.

In 2017, Spark Networks, Inc merged with global dating group Affinitas GmbH, creating Spark Networks SE, a new global leader in the world of online dating. This merger has given SilverSingles a new home online, and pushed our site to ever greater heights – today we offer senior dating opportunities to singles over 50 in the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia, France, and Germany.

Throughout all these changes, however, one thing has remained constant – the SilverSingles commitment to helping interesting, mature singles make authentic connections.
