It’s never too late to put yourself back out there in the dating scene. Whether you’re a millennial, or a silver fox, you’ll find that there’s a match out there waiting for everyone. Seniors may find it more difficult to find their soulmates in a dating market saturated with young people who aren’t looking for anything serious or long-term. But worry not; there’s someone out there for you. Here’s how to get back into the dating field as a senior.

1.Stick to what you know

Old-fashioned dating isn’t as old-fashioned as you think. For those who want to meet people of the same age, it’s important to stick to what you already know and make use of your immediate environment and network to start meeting people. Agree on a date and time to meet via phone or even in person, and see how easily things hit it off.

2. Romance isn’t dead

With the advent of dating apps and social media, dating has become kind of a crude practice. But if you’re a senior looking for a serious long-term relationship, then ditch your phone and get romantic. Preparing flowers and chocolates, and setting up a candlelit dinner for your date in a cozy environment would be a nice way to wind down and relax, instead of a loud party or club.

3. Find someone at your level of maturity

Finding someone at the level of your maturity who isn’t already taken isn’t as hard as it seems. Without really considering age, you can find a reasonable partner who is professional and romantic as you are. You can do this by looking around in your workplace, or a friend you met, or even in a hobby group. Making use of these avenues will ensure that you don’t get mismatched with someone who is immature and who isn’t as committed as you are in a relationship.
