For many, this means finding a romantic companion — but not always.
“People often find themselves somewhere in the middle of that spectrum,” he says, “not necessarily ready to launch into a full-blooded romantic relationship, but open to the idea of finding one — especially if they start with companionship first and things grow from there.” Basic membership to Stitch lets you browse one profile a day and have limited access to the Community (for free).
Rather than a Tinder-type attraction based on looks alone, or even a profile-based choice (which sometimes tells very little about a person), e Harmony says it looks to to help generate the most reliable — and successful — matches.
There may be a lot of seniors looking for love, but e Harmony says it matches you only with people who, scientifically speaking, make the cut.
Silver Singles matches users by analyzing their questionnaires. “The biggest thing that sets us apart from other sites is that we are dedicated to catering for an over-50 dating crowd,” says spokeswoman Sophie Watson.
“Whereas some other sites might be overly concerned with first loves, or with timelines like settling down and starting a family, our members have already achieved many of these milestones, and are now in a place in their lives where they can focus on themselves.” .
Unfortunately, very little information about the site or the matching process is available until or unless you sign up.
But how in the world do you get back into the dating scene? Church groups and mixers for the widowed and divorced notwithstanding, many seniors find it hard to meet someone. Like Match.com, e Harmony is an all-ages adult dating site that also operates a “senior dating” section.Users are matched based on e Harmony’s “29 Dimensions” model, which e Harmony describes as a “soul-searching questionnaire” that compares features of compatibility found in successful relationships.According to Mandy Ginsberg, CEO of Match Group, there are several components to finding your ultimate match.They include what you you like Match.com’s history and success rate, but you don’t want to weed through the under-50 crowd to find your true match, try Match’s sister site exclusively for seniors — Our It does, but here you can be matched with someone a little older or younger, rather than staying within the strict 50 guidelines of some senior dating sites.
