Of online dating

When it comes to mature dating a retired healthcare professional can be quite a catch.

Joining Old Romantics is: Unlike many professions, farmers tend to slow down rather than retire.

They may delegate to family or farmworkers but often don’t let go of the reins completely.

Let’s face it, the young might need all the help they can get, but they can handle that with their own websites.

Old Romantics lets actual old romantics like us get on with meeting and finding someone to spend time with. It's free to join, and you can get started right away – either to dip your toes into the senior dating pool, or to jump right in with both feet.

The website itself is really something special as well.

It lets you set up your profile in as much detail as you like, and encourages you to add a photo or two.

Later, you can explore the advantages of becoming a paid member, like the ability to read the dating diary entries that other members have chosen to make public, get to know people a bit better before you have to summon up the courage to actually talk to them, and even send and receive private messages from anyone who thinks they might fancy you as well.

Lastly, if that awkward moment is still proving a bit daunting, we even provide an ‘icebreaker’ service which has launched many a senior dating relationship.

Still, many of us understand that with maturity comes a bit of grace, restraint and attention to detail that few of us had in our 20s, and not many of us had managed to scrape together even in our 40s!

Not that there is anything wrong with dating a younger partner, if you’re into that kind of thing.

Then just select a memorable password, and click ‘join now’.
