A site called Love Again sounds like the perfect dating site for older daters, those who may have experienced a few long-term relationships and marriages already, only to now find themselves divorced, alone and/or looking for a new love. If you think that, you’d certainly be right with LoveAgain.com, not least given that there are plenty of people on the site your age, with 82 per cent of its members being 41 or over. It’s a site that goes to great lengths to help you to find a match, with a vast range of easy to use features.
Central to your chances of finding a date is a well-completed profile, and in addition to adding plenty of information to your own, it’s easy to browse those of others, discovering their interests, character and motivations for signing up to the site. There are also many ways of browsing the site for potential dates, and if you see any you fancy, it’s easy to send an ice breaker, invite them to private chat or add him or her to your favorites.
As well as the messages, winks and photos that you would expect of any good senior dating site, LoveAgain.com brings you periodic special offers and allows you to search for an event in your area, whether it’s a singles party, speed date or something very different. If you’re ever stuck for ideas of what to do to attract potential dates, just head to the homepage and do a multi-flirt – which, as it sounds like, involves flirting with lots of people at once!
The site has developed technologies that allow it to detect scammers – in many cases, before they even have the chance to interact with other users. You can also ensure a safer experience by only dating one of the site’s Trusted Members, who have been verified to be real people.
Signing up to LoveAgain.com is a cinch if you do it with Facebook, but if you can’t or won’t for any reason, don’t worry – there is also a manual signup option, with both being completely free. Complete the homepage form, giving such details as your email address, intended password, birthdate and location. You’ll then need to click an activation email, and on your return to the site, will be prompted to provide more details, including a screen name, subject and message. You can then select the information that you would like to receive by email, which can include activity from other members, new matches and more.
Upgrade to gain the ability to send and reply to emails, in addition to using Instant Messenger and viewing personal photo albums. Choosing the six month option saves you a whopping 60 per cent over time, so it would certainly be our recommended choice.

One of the great things about choosing a site that is very much geared to senior daters - as is the case with LoveAgain.com - is the knowledge that the site has been designed to be easy to use, even if you’ve never used a dating site before. Search, Chat, Mail and Activity are all easy to reach from the top menu, but don’t forget the many further links at the bottom of the page, either. You might also easily miss the little clickable downward arrow at the top right of the page, signifying a dropdown box directing you to account and menu options.
This site is very much geared to easy searching. Click the Search tab, and you’ll be instantly greeted with member profiles, with further tabs allowing you to see the members that have recently signed up and/or that are using the site at the moment. You can also perform a basic search by such parameters as gender, age and location, or perform a more specific search focusing on the likes of sexual orientation, lifestyle and looks, as well as whether or not the user is a Trusted Member. There is also a My Matches page, which produces
