If a long break means you've been out of the 'dating game' for a while you might feel like you don't know where to begin when it comes to finding love.
But, you are definitely not alone and we have plenty of people aged 50 on our platform and all over the UK For those of us who grew up without the internet the concept of looking online for love may, at first, seem somewhat unnatural.
Also bear in mind, that many singles over 50 are not necessarily looking for romance in the traditional sense.
