What Sets Old Romantics Apart?

Obviously, the minimum age is a start. We are exclusively for over 50s. Not that there is anything wrong with dating a younger partner, if you’re into that kind of thing. Still, many of us understand that with maturity comes a bit of grace, restraint and attention to detail that few of us had in our 20s, and not many of us had managed to scrape together even in our 40s!

At a glance

  • A way to meet other mature singles in your area
  • A free to join service that is at the core of one of Britain's fastest growing over 50s dating communities
  • Free ‘winks’, an easy way to express a little bit of interest and see if you get any in return
  • Detailed member profiles and full dating diaries
  • Our unique ‘Icebreaker’ service to set you off on the right foot every time
  • Our Member Map, making it easy to see who is looking for a date in your part of the UK

The Service

The website itself is really something special as well. It lets you set up your profile in as much detail as you like, and encourages you to add a photo or two. Of course, it lets you search the profiles of other mature people all across the UK, or even just those who are right around the corner from you. You can get started by sending a flirty little wink to anyone who catches your eye – that’s free as well, of course.

Later, you can explore the advantages of becoming a paid member, like the ability to read the dating diary entries that other members have chosen to make public, get to know people a bit better before you have to summon up the courage to actually talk to them, and even send and receive private messages from anyone who thinks they might fancy you as well.

Lastly, if that awkward moment is still proving a bit daunting, we even provide an ‘icebreaker’ service which has launched many a senior dating relationship.

Safe and Secure

  • Our site is safe and secure, protected by HTTPS technology - see the padlock in your web browser
  • We vet every profile carefully before posting it – each is a real person interesting in senior dating, and someone the right person would be delighted to meet.
  • Your free membership really is free, and you can both post your profile and search the profiles of others without charge.
  • Your data security is our top priority. All of your communications with us are completely secure and protected, as is your profile and other data.
  • It even works (well!) on your phone or mobile device.

The leading 50+ dating site

Old Romantics is based on the simple premise that just because there is a bit of snow on the roof doesn’t mean there is no fire in the heart! There are hundreds, maybe thousands of dating sites for young people, but they don’t address the needs of the UK’s senior dating community at all. We thought it would be miles better for everyone if we could set up a simple, free to join and easy to use website for over 50s dating, and see what we could do for people just like us.

We are:

  • A mature dating website dedicated to helping over 50s in the UK find each other
  • A free to join service that could be your ticket to lasting love
  • Or even just a way to find someone with shared interests to go out with on a Friday night!

Old Romantics is all about mature dating, and helping single men and women over the age of 50 to find one another. Let’s face it, the young might need all the help they can get, but they can handle that with their own websites. Old Romantics lets actual old romantics like us get on with meeting and finding someone to spend time with.

How can I Get Started?

Well, that’s the good news. It's free to join, and you can get started right away – either to dip your toes into the senior dating pool, or to jump right in with both feet.

We’ll only need 4 pieces of information to get started – your first name, your sex, your birthday and an email address where we can contact you. Your name sex and the year you were born will become a part of your public profile, but we’ll keep your exact date of birth and email to ourselves, for your protection.

Then just select a memorable password, and click ‘join now’. We’ll send a welcome email to your email address, and you can log in.

Joining Old Romantics is:

  1. Safe and secure
  2. Fun and friendly
  3. Fast and easy
