Heading to a dating site after a breakup doesn't even have to be about finding your next relationship. At a minimum, you can think of it as a needed distraction - a comfortable way to find someone to grab a drink with, get dressed up and remember how much you loved flirting.
Or it can mean something more...because when it comes to online dating, anything is possible.
If you’re ready to kick off your slippers, put the lid back on that pint of Ben and Jerry’s and at the very least explore what’s out there, here are 3 dating sites to start with:
The Pitch: The premier dating site for professional singles.
Why you’ll like it: If browsing through profiles isn’t your thing, Elite Singles is your best bet. The site connects you through compatibility matching (based on a personality quiz) and only caters to a 30+ crowd.
You only get around 6 matches a day - so if you’re super picky this is not the place for you - but it is a great way to be able to get the most out of online dating (so many women, all in one place) without having to invest too much effort.
The Pitch: Compatibility-based dating for 50+ singles
Why you’ll like it: Unlike some more complicated and open-ended dating sites, SilverSingles does the work for you.
There’s no swiping or searching required - simply fill out the site’s personality quiz upon joining and they’ll use your results to find you a compatible match. And because it’s a site that’s dedicated to mature singles, you won’t be receiving potential dates that are half your age.
Every day you’ll receive 3-7 match suggestions, and it’s up to you to choose whether you want to connect or not. For a better dating experience on a site that truly works for you, SilverSingles can’t be beat.
The Pitch: More dates, more relationships, & more marriages than any other dating site.
Why you’ll like it: Match is a pioneer of online dating, and they’ve had over two decades to perfect the way they bring people together.
One thing Match does really well is their offline events - game night, cooking classes, speed dating.
It’s really easy to get stuck in the swiping and chatting phase of online dating and never take that chemistry from screen to street. With Match, you’ve got a good excuse to put your phone down, leave the house, and meet people in a really comfortable environment.
