Love and Friends - The UK Dating Site for Thinking People

free dating for over 50 uk

The majority of daters that you contact will not reply at all; this is just a fact of online dating so you need to play the numbers game. His message made me laugh out loud. After a few minutes of filling out your dating profile you too could be on your way to finding that Mr Right or Mrs Right of your romantic dreams. Nothing lost as they say.

How to join a senior dating site

There is nothing wrong with using a dating site for casual friendship encounters as long as you make this clear from the outset. I have joined quite a few dating sites that are for seniors or over 50s but have yet to find onw which has many members in my own area. Yes, younger people can join as there are many over 50s who are looking for younger partners, both men and women. Words such as 'beautiful. Getting used to being rejected online is a great way to further your online dating skills! Dave Chapman 5th September Fusion has been invited on many TV shows , Christian events and publications.

One of the most searched for words that go with dating is free. I bet that you are not surprised at hearing this but why do we want something that is so important to be free? Is it that we feel that we shouldn't pay for love or that everything in life should be free?

Most of us would agree with the saying 'You only get what you pay for' so do we expect low quality love if we are only prepared to pay nothing? I suspect that the answer to that is a resounding 'No' so why do we keep doing it?

I mean searching for free dating. Free can be be good if you are really lucky but do you want to gamble with love, especially as it may be your last chance for it? The good news is that this Buzz50 dating site is completely free to join, search, match and message so it won't cost you a penny until you are sure that it is for you.

Now is a great time of the year to start online dating over 50, so scroll up the page and give it a go! The free dating sites seem to be falling by the wayside and this seems to be for a number of reasons. Most of them are finding that they cannot survive from the advertising around the sites which is not surprising as they nearly all we advertising paid for dating sites! The other main reason is that romance scammers are getting much wiser and more 'professional' so dating sites need a much more effective and highly trained support team which the free dating sites simply cannot afford.

We all like to get things for free but with something as important as your love, future and security, it seems it is worth paying a little. I was once chatting to a friend who had recently embarked on online dating and the way he put it was this: She said how she would spend so much a month on her gym subscription, so much on Sky and so on, I forget the other leisure things she was paying for.

She then said how foolish it would be to expect to get the best from a free dating site when there were other, more professional and safer ones that cost less than any one of her other subscriptions! The rise of paid for or subscription dating sites in has gone a long way to combat the so called Romance Scammers who are understandably reluctant to subscribe as they have to give bank or card details which means that they can be traced, exposed and hopefully prosecuted.

The professional subscription dating sites such as our own Buzz50 Dating can afford to employ a team of support staff who also weed out and ban the scammers, making the dating experience both safer and much more enjoyable. Many of our members do also try the 'free' dating sites and one of the many lovely things about what Mila and I do is that we get a lot of messages and emails from members and daters about their dating experiences on both our Buzz There is no doubt that the subscription sites really do get far better reports that the free ones, particularly with regards to support and the removal of 'Romance Scammers'.

Mila and I are so pleased with how we got on with dating sites that we are delighted to share our experiences and those which we have learned from other daters. You are welcome to be sexist and choose to email just one of us, male or female!

Mila can advise you about online dating from a female's point of view and Mike from a man's. We do discuss online dating quite a lot and are really interested to get comments, suggestions and questions from others who are thinking about online dating or who are already members but want a little, or a lot, of advice. What does free dating really mean? What do you expect to get for free nowadays and do you really belive it when you see that something you want is offered for free?

Most of us realise that nothing much is truly free and we will be paying in some way or another so is it better to know just what we are paying 'up front'? For example, the Buzz Not catches and no surprises!

Jan 20th August I found Plenty Of Fish to be quite good but you are bombarded with adverts, some of which are for very tasteless dating sites! Free it may be but you pay for 'freeness' in other ways! I haven't joined this Buzz50 dating site yet but I may give it a try now. Mike Barrett 21st August Please do join as it is free to join and use in most areas so you can see if there are matches for you before taking out a subscription.

Free dating sites have their place but I have never got on with them. Dating for seniors has become really popular and a lot of sites are claiming to be free dating sites until you actually want to meet! Peter Wilkes 22nd August I am probably one of the lucky ones as the people that I have met on dating sites have been great. I do stick to the well known dating sites and only use paid sites for the reasons Mike says above.

The latest surveys show that dating for seniors over 50 online is booming and the numbers are breaking all records. We here at Buzz50 Dating can confirm this as we are getting more new members joining every day than we did at this time last year and for good reasons! One of the main reasons is the acceptance by us older daters that online dating is completely acceptable and a great way to meet a new special friend, partner, lover or even more.

Another reason is the rejection by many daters of the so-called computer matching algorithms which claim to find your perfect partner. The free searching systems, like the one we use here at Buzz50 dating are proving to be far more effective and more enjoyable. More and more over 50s are now computer savvy, partly because computers are now so much a part of our lives and partly because the over 50s actually grew up or worked with computers more than their elders.

Over 50s are now younger! Dating online is therefore more acceptable to them and far easier to use. Even if you are over 50 and not computer 'savvy' then the modern dating sites such as Buzz50 dating are far easier to use than they used to be years ago so come along and give it a try! Another of the many reasons why dating for over 50s is becoming so popular this year is of course the dating success stories! 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. There are a few times in the year when online dating sites get particularly busy and the lead up to Valentine's Day is, unsurprisingly, one of them. Singles start to remember romantic times and begin to wish that they too had a special friend, lover, partner or even more. Online dating can offer the perfect solution if it is approached in the right way.

The first thing to do is, of course, to choose a safe and reliable dating site and where better to start than our very own Buzz50 dating? Whether your are over 50, over 60 or older, Buzz50 is sure to have a great range of dating partners for you to choose from. Once you have chosen a dating site to join, hopefully Buzz50 Dating of course, then you really must spend some quality time filling out your dating profile and uploading some recent photos of yourself.

First impressions really do count and so a good quality, recent main photo and a detailed and truthful description of yourself for your dating profile are vital. Probably the best time to start searching for a Valentine is about 2 weeks before the 14th of February, giving you both a chance to send a few messages and get to know each other a little.

It can be a good idea to take things slowly at first, don't jump in with both feet! Sending dating messages can be a bit of an art but the secret is not to disclose too many personal details early on and please, do not air grievances of previous relationships; that can be a real 'turn-off'. So, you have decided to take the plunge into the dating pool to see if there is a Valentine's fish swimming around waiting for you. The question on your lips is, 'What do I do now?

Well, maybe that is or maybe it isn't on your lips but we are nevertheless going to tell you! Number one is of course to join a really god dating site like Buzz50 Dating. Two is to upload some really good and recent photos of yourself with a bit of variety, close ups, full body clothed! I say recent and I mean it. You would not believe how many people back out of their first date when they realise how different they are going to look from their dating profile photos, so much older!

Three is to complete your dating profile and this is where you can really 'sell' yourself. Be honest and not too 'over the top'. You want to attract others and not scare them off. Done all of these? You'll have to wait until tomorrow for what to do next.

The very next thing that you need to do is to start searching! You know what you are looking for in a new partner and you are even surer to know what you want to avoid. The search system on Buzz50 Dating is really good and puts you, rather than a computer, in control. Try and keep your options quite broad to start with as you can easily narrow them down as you go along.

Age range and location are the first to enter and then have a good browse through your dating candidates. If any jump out at you then send them a message, don't be shy! The more messages that you send, the more likely you are to get replies, of course. One of the beauties of online dating is that you do not see your prospective dater face to face until you are ready and choose to.

This means that you are able to be much braver than you would perhaps be in real life and more likely to make advances. Getting used to being rejected online is a great way to further your online dating skills!

You will find that many of the people who you message will not reply and you may well, at first, feel a little rejected, but there are so many reasons for the other person not to reply that it is not worth worrying about. Just take it in your stride and write another message. After a while you will start to really enjoy the dating 'game'. So, you have joined the Buzz50 Dating site,uploaded a few dating photos, completed your dating profile and sent a few dating messages. Simply carry on the good work and enjoy yourself.

Online dating can be really great fun and very rewarding as long as you put the effort in. You will soon find yourself rushing to your computer first thing in the morning and each time you get home to see how many replies you have to your messages but remember; you need to send messages to get replies!

Having joined Buzz50 Dating it is really improtant not to sit back and wait for things to happen, you now need to become the searcher! We suggest that you make at least 6 contacts a day at an absolute minimum. The majority of daters that you contact will not reply at all; this is just a fact of online dating so you need to play the numbers game. The more messages you send then the more likely you are to get rplies, simple mathematics! Thank you all for your lovely messages to Mila and I about the dating site over the Valentine's week.

It is really nice to hear how ell many of you did with your dating escapades! It is probably time to retire this Valentine's Dating section for and bring it back next year. Lots of new members joined Buzz50 Dating during February and quite a few have started dating already. 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! 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.

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 girlfreind 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 realy 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 alogorithms 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 beleive to be the biggest UK Dating site for just over a year now and I know what you mean about 'fancy alogorithms'!

A large number of my computer generated matches just don't suit me at all but I can see whay 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 bossman 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. Online dating over 50 is becoming increasingly popular and it can be hard to decide which site to join and how to go about your first dating experiences. Here at Buzz50 we hold your hand every step of the way if that is what you want. Mila and Mike are experienced daters and also have the help, advice, support and tips from thousands of members who are only too eager to help other seniors in the dating game.

If you would like to dip your toes in the dating pond and see if there are fish for you then please do come along and join us at https: Being over 50 really does have its advantages nowadays!

We over 50s have special sites made just for us and in the case of Buzz50, 2 sites! So, celebrate the fact that you are over 50 and maye 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.

Make sure that you send at least 4 messages a day, more if you can. Being a senior dating over 50 can be really rewarding and great fun, especially if you do the right things and put a little work into your dating project. Flattery does get you somewhere, sometimes! There is a limit to how much you fould flower up your messages but there is nothing to stop you being truthful.
