Are you over 50, single and gay? Gay senior dating has its own challenges, but online websites are fast changing the face of dating today. SilverSingles, one of the leading senior gay dating sites, is created for senior singles to connect and discover companionship, love, and relationships. So, how does it work?
Getting back into dating and meeting a compatible partner can sometimes feel like a difficult undertaking. And gay senior dating does have something of a reputation for being a difficult domain to find a serious, long-term relationship. The gay dating scene, fairly or not, has been accused of frivolity at its best and ageism at its worst. So how do you go about meeting senior, gay singles who share your values and goals?
A key factor to finding the right people is finding the right community. The first step to putting yourself out there to meet singles who also want a lasting relationship is finding those singles! And that’s where SilverSingles comes in. Created for senior singles looking for authentic connections, the platform offers the opportunity to connect with real people looking for real relationships. And although meet-up groups and social networks are a great way to meet other senior gay singles, you don’t know who you will meet or what they are looking for. Enter SilverSingles, the intelligent option when hoping to meet your match on senior gay dating sites.
Online dating has become the modern meeting place. And as the world has been transformed by technology, dating too has gone digital. And the good news is that it isn’t solely for the younger generation – Pew Research has shown that the number of users between 55-64 years old has more than doubled since 2013. And it continues to grow. With an accessible community of senior singles looking for love, SilverSingles offers a tailored solution for over 50 dating and this quickly expanding community.
The process starts with an insightful personality test, allowing us to get an understanding of what you’re looking for and what is important to you. To eliminate time wasters and unsuitable profiles, you will then be sent new matches every day. Using smart matchmaking technology based on psychological research, we take into account your personality traits and preferences, lifestyle, location, and relationship goals. You are sent selected profiles to match your own, giving you a higher chance of compatibility and connection with other men seeking men.
Are you busy and on the go or do you prefer to enjoy senior gay dating sites with the privacy of your own computer? Flexible to your needs, SilverSingles is available in a desktop version or, if you prefer mobility in your online dating, you can choose our mature dating app, optimized for both Android and Apple. We believe gay senior dating should fit comfortably into your lifestyle and be as uncomplicated and convenient as possible for you to enjoy the experience.
Online dating safety is an issue we also take seriously.

1. Be open
It can be easy to specify exactly want you do and don’t want in a partner while using senior gay dating sites. But you’re both taking a chance on each other so even if they don’t seem the perfect fit, you never know what relationship could develop. So take a chance and it may just be the best adventure you’ve been on! And remember you shouldn’t be afraid to say no – if you’re not comfortable in a situation, it’s your prerogative to just say no. By listening to your heart, be open to where it may lead you.
2. Be honest
Do you believe in monogamy or is it your goal to get married? It’s helpful for you to be clear with yourself first about what kind of relationship you really want. It may not be suitable first date conversation, but when the time is right, be honest! Even if it’s tempting to try and create a more appealing picture, not being upfront creates a gap between reality and perception. And you know, if you meet the man of your dreams – you want him to see you for who you are!
3. Be kind
A good rule in dating, as in life, is do to others as you wish them to do to you. Just because it’s online dating, doesn’t make it ok to be disrespectful. Reply to messages, even if it’s to say you’re not interested. Try to avoid using stereotypes or clichés in your communications as in truth it undermines the individual. Learn how to give and take acceptance and rejection with equal grace and respect. Good manners and respect take you far in life and online! And, most importantly, be kind and patient with yourself.
Your profile is the online version of your first impression for potential matches. Choose suitable photos as the golden rule of online gay senior dating. Choose a selection of photos that are accurate and reflect aspects of your personality. Don’t use outdated pictures, or try to hide your real age or weight, or whatever other insecurity you may have. You want a date to know who they are meeting on the first date, but you also want to put your best foot forward. Select pictures with good lighting, recently taken, and in which you’re appropriately dressed, smiling and comfortable.
