Advice on Senior Dating for the Woman or man over 40...
dating when you're only 41? At this website we reserve the term
'senior dating' for those over 60 (see our senior
dating personals section), but it appears that many websites
are now using the term to apply to the over 40s, no more! Regardless
of terminology, you can find singles over 40 at our recommended
dating site by using the panel to the right. Have fun discovering
who's out there!
on the face of it, would appear to be for 'seniors', wouldn't it?
In my experience seniors are people over 60, known in the UK as
'Old Age Pensioners', for example.
Yet there are
a lot of online dating sites cropping up these days aimed at those
over 40 yet describing themselves as 'senior dating sites'. Incredible!
How can this be?
Are they being
run by teenagers for who everyone over 40 is ancient? Is this a
sign of an Internet dominated by young people? Strangely, no, for
studies of Internet users by age has shown that all age groups are
represented online. What's more, those in the 40 to 50 age group
form a considerable percentage.
So, how can
it be explained then? One factor is that there may be an element
of youthful webmasters who do not understand this demographic. For
example, I once saw a dating website page which was aimed at the
over 40s in which the presumably useful webmaster had written "I
can't imagine why people over 40 would want to date each other but
if you must do it then here is a way to find other people in your
age group"! I'm not kidding, that is for real.
is an element of this, I do not think it is the main reason for
over 40s being described as 'seniors' online. It may have begun
as a joke, but now it has simply become a fashion. So, if you are
in the 40 to 50 (or 50 to 60) age group then you just have to live
with this online label, I'm afraid!
