Online Dating sucks. Or does it?

Everyone has a different experience on dating sites. Some love it, some hate it – but amongst all users, there are some common threads.

If you want good advice on how to use effective search strategies, and how to create an appealing, accurate profile, you’ve come to the right place. Real advice from real people with over 10 years of online dating and mid-life dating coaching experience.

Remember, though, that you’ll need a LOT of patience.  But if you are willing to be patient and learn the ropes of online dating and effective search strategies, then the experience can be WELL worth your time, energy and online dating costs/dating site or meal expenses.

But get it wrong, and you’ll soon be saying “online dating sucks’! And for some, that is the truth. It CAN suck, big time! But it doesn’t have to be that way. And help is readily available for over 50s and over 60s, sexy 70s and beyond.

Successful Online Dating for Over 50s and Over 60s is ALL about your APPROACH.

It’s HOW you approach online dating that makes the difference when you’re in your fifties, sixties, sexy seventies and beyond.

Get your online dating profile and search strategy wrong – and online dating WILL suck.

It can even feel depleting and soul destroying. Get it right, and it’s a lot of fun.
Plus, if you’re honest, wise and patient, your chances of finding a good partner are much higher.
Why online dating sites don’t WORK well for MANY people over fifty, over sixty and beyond.
  • For some people, online dating sites lead to great connections.
  • There are numerous friendships, dates, marriages and other long-term relationships that have solid compatibility, sensuality and joy.
  • For others, it’s a struggle. A waste of time and energy. The difference is ALL about approach.

Do you need to be on online dating sites to find a partner these days?

The answer is yes, online dating over 50, 60 and 70 can help – a lot.

Is every single person REALLY using online dating methods to find a partner?

The estimate – and it IS just an estimate – as large, validated data sets of unbiased populations are NOT readily available, is that:

  • From nearly 20% to over 50% of singles across all age ranges HAVE USED – or are using – internet dating platforms to connect with others and/or to search for love.
  • The highest group of users are under 35 but there’s a growing user based of 40s, 50s and 60s and sexy 70s..

Facebook has reached a bell curve peak and is on the decline for growth, and is trending downwards in searches according to trend reports.

But Tinder statistics and user growth is rapidly rising and has not yet peaked (my personal estimate is that it will reach it’s bell curve growth peak in about 2 years but that could vary by 1-3 years – and the more languages and countries that adopt the dating app, the longer that growth curve could continue to rise)..


So many people are now using dating profiles online, you really have to be on a dating site to meet someone – or nearly!

Because there’s no sideways glances these days on trains, planes, landing platforms or lobbies. Everyone’s too busy swiping left or right on Tinder or checking their accounts on Match, Elite Singles, Silver Singles, Bumble, RSVP and more.

Social changes also apply when you’re searching for love after the age of 50, 60 and beyond on sites like Tinder, Match, Elite Singles, Zoosk, Bumble and more.
  • Plus, there have been many social changes that have altered the way GENDER ROLES play out in male-female relationships, and same-gender/same sex relationships.
  • Not to mention that in your 50s, you may be an empty nester or have your own young children AND your grandchildren living at home (or under the age of 5 or 10) due to remarriage or blended families.

Dating today is not as easy as touching a screen on your phone. But the latest online dating apps and internet dating options CAN make it EASIER (or more difficult).  And this depends entirely on HOW MUCH you learn and prepare for the experience as well as HOW REALISTIC and ADAPTABLE your expectations are (and NOT all expectations should be adaptable. Read the dating profile and search tips on my BLOG).

The reality of Online Dating when you’re over 50, over 60 or over 70 and beyond – it’s tricky, daunting stuff.


  • I’m well aware of the struggles middle-aged individuals face when they find themselves alone – and unexpectedly looking for a new partner to merge with into their final years or decades of life (the final quarter or upper third as some like to call these years)..
  • The older we get, the more tick boxes we have, but the less available suitable partners there is – is a reality of mid-life dating.
  • The online dating field is full of would-be prospective partners who may be surrounded by other would-be suitors – you NEED TO STAND OUT to be seen, searched for and serenaded over a coffee, juice, wine or tea).

Make no mistake, dating online is a very competitive pursuit where creative, fit, healthy and hand-baggage only prospects within cycling distance have a huge ADVANTAGE over people who are less fit, less creative or less interesting in terms of their online profiles and searching strategies.

Throw in ex’s, teenagers, young children or children returned to the house – or grandchildren on the way, third or fourth marriages and divorces and multiple-blended families – and it all gets somewhat complicated.

But I’m here to help you find your way, so long as you do your homework and tasks as described in my book, The Love Hunters Guide to midlife-dating and online search strategies. 

Topics in my book and online dating blog about sites like Tinder and Facebook dating include:

  • understanding the problems with age gaps between partners
  • the necessity of being age-honest on your dating profile
  • which photos will flatter you and which will detract from responses
  • knowing which dating apps or dating sites are going to work best for you and what you’re looking for
  • how to refine your search strategies to save money, time, heartaches and headaches..
