When people get older, their life circumstances change and often they find themselves alone while those around them - their family and friends - are busy with their everyday lives.
They are living in tough times, which is why they need to find companionship by meeting new people around them.
It's fair to say that once you start dating in your 40s, you're almost certainly taking the search for love seriously.
Long gone are the days where cheap thrills and short flings were enough to keep you happy and - as a professional, a parent or simply an all-round responsible adult - your love life has become more serious. Meeting and falling in love with a supportive, mature partner is a worthy priority in your life; the only problem is how to find them.
But did you know that these days more and more mature people are joining online dating sites?
This is why lots of over 60s dating often involves group meet ups, where people share some fun, companionship, and common interests with the participants.
Think of social activities like joining reading clubs, playing duplicate bridge or the ever popular bingo: such pastimes will make your date a little more exciting and you'll also be able to socialise and make friends with new people as well.
Most singles over 60 find companionship in group events, where they are able to meet fresh faces, enjoy amazing conversations with new acquaintances and share some fun.
In these gatherings, people are in good moods, and others are often there to meet other people as well.
In over 40 dating, without doubt, you make your own luck!
