Senior Dating: find a new lease on life on eharmony

by Eharmony Editorial Team October 26, 2021

With the exciting array of novel activities in and around cities as well as the recent leaps in technology and connectivity, there’s never been a better time to go senior dating in Australia. If you are newly single or just find meeting new people difficult, you could be forgiven for thinking there aren’t many senior dating opportunities near you. However, just five minutes on any senior dating site will reveal you’re actually surrounded by prospects. Let’s explore some effective ways to meet these people in your area, why online dating is changing the dating game and how eharmony can help you navigate these unfamiliar waters until you find your relationship destination. 

3 way to meet single seniors in your city

Join a ballroom dancing club

Ballroom dancing clubs provide a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere to get in touch with new senior dating opportunities without the typical pressure of other social functions. Many senior singles attend these classes as a way of staying active and connected to the world.  

Volunteer for something you’re passionate about

Volunteering is a great way to help out your favourite causes. You also get to engage with the community as well as your fellow volunteers and build new relationships. If you have mobility limitations, there are many non-physical clerical tasks that charitable foundations also need help with.  

Senior trips have a lot of senior dating opportunities

While you’ve probably heard of special holiday packages for single seniors, you probably don’t know how diverse they can be. From glamour camping your way up the Australian coast to Balinese beach adventures, it’s a great way to create new experiences and socialise in a group environment.

What to expect on a senior dating site

Online dating is the quickest and most convenient way of meeting other singles. Whether you go for dating sites for older people or just a conventional dating app, they all work on a similar principle. After signing up, you upload some photos of yourself and provide some details about your interests and your lifestyle for your profile. Many services let you set an age and location range so you only see senior dating prospects near you. Then you get to review eligible profiles until a few interest you. When one does, send them a message introducing yourself and open up the conversation to further interactions by asking them about themselves. It’s that easy.   

Picking the right online dating service for you

Here are some questions you should ask yourself before deciding on a senior dating site or another type of dating service:

What kind of relationship are you looking for?

If you’re looking for something casual or even platonic, most popular dating apps cater for that. There are also services like eharmony that specialise in connecting people who are specifically looking for meaningful relationships.

How do you know which service is safe to use?

Always research an online dating site’s reputation before signing up. Some sites and apps have issues with vulnerable customer data storage and malicious scam profiles so it’s important to pick a well-established senior dating site you can trust.  

How much time do you have to commit to online dating?  

While online dating is convenient, it can still take time to review different profiles, write messages and foster budding relationships. If you prefer quality over quantity, pick a service that actively matches you with other profiles based on your personality and preferences. 

Why eharmony is the best choice for meaningful senior dating opportunities

We value your time more than a senior dating site and other dating apps

Rather than just giving you an endless list of dating profiles to wade through, our Compatibility Matching System – an algorithm designed by our relationship experts and informed by over 20 years of industry-leading experience – actively seeks out senior dating prospects in Australia we think you’d be a good fit with based on your personality, lifestyle and relationship goals. We get to know these things about you by having you fill out our simple 20-minute Compatibility Quiz when you join.

Our platform is a safe and open-minded space for people to connect

We want you to feel free to be yourself and connect with others in an open, respectful environment when you’re on eharmony. This is why security and customer experience are central to us. Our Trust and Safety team work tirelessly responding to customer complaints and questions promptly, scanning our system for any fake and dishonest accounts and ensuring the highest possible calibre of data security.  

In fact, a recent consumer survey found eharmony to be the number one most trusted dating site in the world1

We give you the tools to express your true self

Senior dating profiles can sometimes be a bit of a slog to read. You want to know more about the person before making contact but you don’t want to read every single person’s life story. This is why we’ve designed our profiles to be light on text while still giving you a valuable perspective of the other person. Share a personal quote, your favourite books, your passions, your hobbies, your ideal first date or something that always cheers you up to give matches insight into the real you beyond your photos.
