We also recognize that what people want in their 50s, 60s and beyond is often very different from what they wanted in their 30s and 40s, let alone their 20s.
Too many people in their fifties and beyond have given up on ever meeting a new partner or new friends.
But there are millions of other 50 men and 50 women like you, who have just broken up with a partner, got divorced or lost someone very special.
This online dating community focuses on the specific interests and desires of people like you. Meet for the first time in a populated, public location – never in a private or remote location. Inform a friend or family member of your plans and when and where you're going.
If you own a mobile phone, make sure you have it with you . Do not do anything that would impair your judgment and cause you to make a decision you could regret. Just in case things don't work out, you need to be in control of your own ride – even if you take a taxi.
