John and Judith Humphreys married on Saturday the 24th January 2015 after meeting on the Daily Telegraph dating site.

The Daily Telegraph dating site is part of a network of dating sites in the same way as the Buzz50 one is, sharing members across a network of sites. Buzz50 Dating shares its members with The Independant dating site and Smooth Radio dating along with many other household names.

Seniors dating online over 50 is becoming quite 'the norm' nowadays and the benefits far outweigh the small costs involved.

John and Judith had both been widowed and were initially just browsing the dating sites looking for companionship.


If you are a senior over 50 and have considered meeting up with others then online dating could well be the answer. It only takes a few minutes to join and then you can be searching by all sorts of methods and browsing through profiles. It is then up to you whether you contact the prospective members or not!


I did a lot of research before choosing Global Personals to be our white label dating site providers and this article tells you a bit about that journey.

I wrote down a list of what I felt would be important for our senior, over 50s members and then started joining dating sites!

I didn't limit myself to over 50s dating sites or those branded senior dating sites but joined all the successful ones that I could find, including the obvious candidates like Match and eHarmony.

Here is the list of what I was looking for:

Buzz50 dating is getting plenty of new members joining every day now both from the Buzz50 Seniors site and the listings that we have on Google.

Over 50 dating seems to be accepted fully now in the seniors circle and has completely lost the stigma that it once had.

I remember when we first started the Buzz50 Dating site; I think that it was around six years ago and many Buzz members would complain at seeing the dating adverts on the social site. Nowadays hardly any complain but many come to this senior dating site after seeing them.

The Buzz50 over 50s dating site is part of a group of other dating sites; which means that as well as all our members joining there are also literally hundreds joining every single day from other dating over 50 senior sites.

If you are over 50 and are considering dating then I would urge you to give us a try. Joining and searching is completely free.

Many people will join many dating sites and one of the many good things about joining our site is that you are searching from within a large range of other sites at the same time, including the likes of the Telegraph newspaper dating, Smooth Radio dating and many other respected sites.

As mentioned elsewhere on this site, we have many success stories and even an online dating Buzz50 wedding!

It could happen to you but you need to be in it to win it...

Lord Alan Sugar’s  BBC TV programme ‘The Apprentice’ is due to start a new series on the 14th October 2014 and this reminds me of one of the many reasons why Mila and I are so proud of the Buzz50 dating site.

I am delighted to announce that Buzz50 over 50s senior dating has had what we believe is our very first wedding.

I received a message from a Buzzer last week saying this:
