If you’re single over 60 the prospect of dating can be daunting. You just have to take a look at Dame Judi to see how happy she is to have found love again.
As one of our Spring Chicken readers said, ‘you can tell she’s happy, she glows’.
Online dating sites may seem far out for you but nowadays they have become the norm for people of all ages. There’s no longer a stigma attached to e-dating, and these days there’s a wealth of specialist sites aimed solely at the 50+ and 60+ age groups. Believe it or not, they can offer a safe, monitored approach and can really save you time by matching you with someone with similar interests. Singles holidays are also a great way to meet people as well as fulfilling that wanderlust in you that has perhaps been stifled of late.
So which sites can be trusted and recommended?

The solo cruise market has shrunk over the last 3 years. Since cruise companies need “on board spending” to generate profit and therefore one person on their own does not suffice for most of them unfortunately and they are actively discouraging solo travel. “Single supplements” are often 100% (one person pays the same as two people!). You have to be careful also because double port taxes are often charged. Despite this, it’s worth looking at the surviving company’s that do cater fairly for single travellers as a Cruise offers the perfect setting in which to meet someone. Here is a couple of company’s that claim to do just that – with positive reviews.
Solos Holidays UK
You can filter your search by price range, times and destinations (anywhere from cruises around the UK or much further afield). If a cruise is not what you’re looking for this company offer a wide variety of solo holidays and even weekend activities such as black tie balls, rambling and fun days out to meet people. With 30 years of experience and positive reviews, on the whole, Solo Holidays UK do seem to tick all the boxes.
Register online and contact the head office for more details and to book a trip.
Cruise Deals UK
If you’re interested in a cruise but feel uncomfortable about seeming like you are going with the intention of finding love then perhaps try Cruise Deals UK, as they advertise themselves as a solo cruise company for independent travellers. Although a little higher on the price spectrum this is a real classy option with beautiful rooms and top notch service on board. There are organised activities if you’re feeling sociable otherwise they offer entertainment and SPA treatments to enjoy by yourself.
To book call the number on either the website or the blog. There is no registration necessary.
Just You is a company that offers holidays for someone who is not necessarily ready to date but wants to go on an adventure with like minded people. If there is somewhere you’ve always wanted to go but never found the time or anyone to go with then this is a great option.
