SeniorPeopleMeet is now OurTime.

People Media (who is owned by Match Group) has decided to merge their two senior dating services into one. The services are SeniorPeopleMeet and OurTime. This process has been well on its way for a while now since both websites and apps were already the same (features, user interface, etc...) except for the name and color scheme.

When you visit SeniorPeopleMeet.com a message is now displayed explaining the merger. SeniorPeopleMeet user database which includes profiles, messages, and photos will all be transferred over to OurTime. SeniorPeopleMeet users just have to visit OurTime.com and use their existing SeniorPeopleMeet username and password to log in.

Senior People Meet is the 2013 Editor's choice for the Top Pick - Senior Award. This is the fourth time in which this dating site has won this award. This year we decided on honouring Senior People Meet not only because it is one of the largest seniors only dating sites but because they make it easy for singles 50 years and older to meet each other online in a fun and safe way.

It takes about 2 minutes to create a basic profile which will allow you to then look over the site and search for members in your city. Searching and sending email to your favorite members is straight forward and can be done in just a few clicks. Just make sure you finish your profile first and include a couple of good photos so the person you sent the message too has a better idea of who is contacting them.

Besides email you can also communicate with members by creating a video greeting, and chatting via text or a live video connection (at least one person must have a video camera). If you are inundated with too many communication requests SeniorPeopleMeet.com also allows you to specify an age range and the gender of the person with whom is allowed to contact you.

Dating Sites Most Beloved Senior Couple

I had a bit of a laugh today when I was reviewing a few senior dating sites. What do these 3 pictures have in common?

Senior FriendFinder

page

Senior People Meet

page

Single Seniors Meet

page

That's right each one uses the exact same photo of a senior couple! Single Seniors Meet and Senior People Meet actual used the photo at the exact same time back in 2010 before they switched to different photos. Also Single Seniors Meet has gone through a few name changes which is a little confusing. They were called Prime Singles at one point and are now called SilverSingles.com. The site is also run by Spark Networks who also owns Christian Mingle.

I was surprised to see Senior FriendFinder join in on the party and use the same photo of the couple (it is at least a 3 year old photo). There is either very few good photos of happy couples in their later years or ... heck I am not sure why they are using it ... 🤔

The Brave New World Of Senior Dating

If you think online dating is the domain of the young, think again.

IBISWorld and the U.S. Census Bureau estimate that approximately 37% of men and women over 50 are unmarried. With so many people entering their later years unattached, and more and more older Americans becoming comfortable using the Internet, turning to cyberspace has become an increasingly popular option for senior singles.

The percentage of over-55s logging on for love has increased 39% in the last 3 years according to Experian Hitwise, a leading Internet research firm. Singles in the 55+ age bracket are now visiting dating sites more than any other age group, with the #2 spot currently being occupied by singles aged 45-54.

Online dating has proved to be a major advantage for many older singles. Niche dating sites like SilverSingles and SeniorPeopleMeet go above and beyond the offerings of other dating sites by helping members navigate the brave new world of senior dating. Some stress the importance of safety when dating online, some offer tutorials on creating an online dating profile, and others post articles with tips for those who have taken an extended leave of absence from the dating game.

Their work has paid off - some experts even believe that online dating has more potential for older singles than younger singles, citing their superior knowledge of what they're looking for in a partner as the primary source of their success. Younger singles are often focused on marriage and children while older singles, many of whom have been married before and have learned from the mistakes of past relationships, take a more logical approach to dating that focuses on shared interests and long-term compatibility.

For silver surfers looking to get back into the dating game, love gurus offer the following advice:

  • Take as much time as you need to recover from a previous relationship, but don't feel that there is a predetermined mourning period that must be observed following a divorce or breakup. Move on whenever you feel ready to explore something new.

  • Reflect on what you've learned from your relationships so far. What went wrong? What went right? What do you want? What don't you want? What knowledge can you take into your next relationship that will make it the best one yet?

  • Look to the future and think positively. Don't dwell on the past or get caught up in the quicksand of negativity.

  • Make the first move. Finding a match online requires a proactive plan of attack, not a passive approach. Don't wait to get lucky - make love come to you.
