Senior Match

Senior Match is a one of free over 50 dating sites for mature people. It has all the basic functions of a dating site—you can upload a profile and search for members based on very basic search criteria, such as country, age, and gender. When signing up, you have to give an email address, but you can use the site without verifying your email address. This means anyone can create a profile and there may be some fake profiles on the site.

There are no details about who owns the site, but it does offer customer support.

In short, you can have a look around Senior Match as it’s a free senior dating site, but if you’re looking for a bigger site with more members and security options, then you’re better off with something like Senior Sizzle.

Match

As one of the world’s largest dating sites, Match has members of all ages. You can easily find mature members by specifying which age group you’re looking to date.

Having been around for over 20 years and having over 20M members, Match has a solid reputation. And, if you sign up for a 6-month membership and don’t find a serious match during those months, they give you another six months for free. All sexual orientations are welcome.

Match profiles are fairly basic, but they still give you the option to answer a plethora of question related to interests and lifestyle. This can then be used in the search filters when looking for matches.

You can message and chat with other members on Match. In addition to that, there’s an in-app feature that lets you call other members without revealing your phone number.

If you’re looking to date older women, dating sites like Match work well as they have a lot of members and you can set your search preferences to whatever age group you’re looking to date.

Our Time

Looking to date mature women? Dating site Our Time is for mature men and women, usually over 50, looking to find love.

Our Time is a popular mature women dating site with millions of members worldwide. As it specifically focuses on mature dating, members are usually looking for serious dating, as opposed to hoops. Profiles have the option to become fairly detailed, if you fill in all the different sections.

In addition to being able to message other members, you can also video chat with them. This makes virtual first dates a lot easier, as you don’t have to hand out any personal information.

If you’re looking for a no-nonsense dating site catering to those over 50, Our Time is a good option.

Note that there are different versions of the Our Time website, because the US version is owned by People Media and the UK and European versions by Match/Meetic.

Cougar Life

Still young, but looking to date mature women? One of dating apps for older women that caters to this are either regular dating sites, like Tinder and Match where you set your age preferences, or sites that focuses on cougars. Cougar Life is a dating site that focuses on cougars and their cubs. In other words, it’s an older women dating site for older women looking for younger men.

As only about 30% of Cougar Life’s members are female, it’s clear that the male population enjoys older women.

Launched back in 2006, Cougar Life has been around for a while and sports around 7M members worldwide. It’s a very well-designed site that looks incredible! And fun! However, the profiles are a bit lacking in information, and there are no exciting features, or match algorithms.

If you’re looking for an older woman, or a younger man, Cougar Life is definitively a site well-worth checking out.

Cougared

If you are a younger man looking to date mature women, dating site Cougared might be for you. Then again, it might not. Because it’s far from the best cougar dating site out there. At least where design is concerned—it looks like something straight out of the nineties.

What’s more, it looks like Cougared isn’t a very active dating site—as soon as you sign up, they try to interest you in other, paid, dating sites. In short, it looks like Cougared is a front for marketing other sites. Likely they get a cut if they send traffic to the other sites and that traffic signs up for memberships.

If you are looking for a cougar dating site where you can find real-life mature women, rather check out Cougar Life.

POF

If you want to date mature women, dating site POF (formerly Plenty of Fish), may be able to help. Likewise, if you want to date mature men, this is a good site due to its size.

Like many other dating sites for older people on this list, POF is not a site dedicated to mature dating, but rather a site where you find members of all ages. And granted POF has over 90M members worldwide, there's no shortage of members. As they’d say—there’s plenty of fish!

Due to the test you take and other information you need to fill out, profiles on POF are very detailed. As with any other dating site, you also upload photos. Face filters on photos are banned, so if you’re looking for a site where the photos are real, this is it.

There’s the possibility of sending voice notes to your matches, which is a pretty nifty feature! Of course, you can also send regular messages. If POF detects any spam, illicit content, etc. they will block you. You can’t even copy and paste the same message and send it to many different members. This is so as to prevent spam.

Overall, POF is a pretty cool dating site and app, perfect for mature dating so long as you set your age preferences!

Singles50

Mature women dating older men…or rather: mature men looking for younger women. That's what’s Singles 50 is all about, the stress-free way to find the right partner.

As such, this is a site for mature dating over 50. If you’re looking for serious dating, that is all the site for you. Singles 50 comes with some funky features. For one there are forums in which you can interact with other members. There is also the Singles 50 Chemistry Predictor which predicts how well you will match with someone based on a test you do.

Singles 50 is one of small dating sites for older people, so if you need a large reputation, Senior sizzle will be good for you.

Coffee Meets Bagel

Dating site Coffee Meets Bagel has a somewhat unusual approach to online dating. Here, you need to sign up with your Facebook account. The dating app will then introduce you to friends of friends who are also Coffee Meets Bagel users. As such, this app is best in big cities as you need to be able to find friends of friends who are using it. It’s particularly popular in Hong Kong and New York. That said, the algorithm may change slightly if you're in an area where none of your friends of friends are using the app—chances are they’ll introduce you to other members. It has over 10M users, so it’s certainly popular!

What’s interesting with Coffee Meets Bagel is that you do not do any searching. A man is presented with 21 women per day (granted there are that many users in his area). If he likes one of these women (and only then) is she presented with his profile. A woman is only presented with up to 8 potential matches per day, but she will know that those matches already liked her. You only have 24 hours to approve a match, or it disappears. This forces users to truly engage with the app and respond to notifications. Once it’s a mutual match, you can message one another.

During the COVID pandemic, Coffee Meets Bagel has arranged some online speed dating type events for their users.
