Think of it like A Table for Six, but instead of a 30 minute chat, we’ll rotate you every 5minutes. That way you can meet a whole range of other happy empty nesters and match with those most compatible to you. So book an over 50s dating event, and start the courtship to find your better half. 

The best Matching App 4.0 for over 50s

There are a lot of apps and dating sites for over 50s, but our matching platform is already on it’s 4th version! 4.0 means don’t have to download an app, just scan our Speed Dating Social QR code at the venue. From there enter the unique Event Code to get started. 

I know some seasoned individuals might struggle with technology, that’s why our hosts can even do it all for you. So relax and get ready to flirt with some fifty plus singles and find your next heartthrob in person. That way you don’t have to use SilverSinlges and can instantly gauge that spark. And when you do, click ‘Match’ that way they’ll get your mobile number and you can set up a second date the next day. 

How It Works

Every event combines short speed dates, which will help you encounter and meet a number of local singles in your age group. Brief conversations will be organized with each person within 5 minutes. This allows you to determine whether or not you two match up and also has the opportunity to create a genuine connection.

There’s extra mingle time before, after and during each event, and you’re welcome to get nibblies and drinks at the bar. During your blind dates, the ladies stay seated and the hosts rotate the gentlemen every 5 minutes. 

After each date, you just tick “Match” of “Friends” on our matching app, indicating whether you’d like to seeing that person again. Whenever you select someone, it’ll send them your contact details at 8am the next morning. And remember to follow up with your matches and schedule those 2nd dates!

Speed Dating Social 

In a world where online dating apps can be considered too overwhelming and impersonal, Speed Dating Social is a refreshing alternative. Like a matchmaker, we help groups of mature singles meet in the comfort of Melbourne bars and restaurants where they do not feel misjudged based on age. Our singles events are for anyone in their fifties to enjoy real-time conversations in a relaxed and easy-to-open-up environment. So book an event, you’ll have enough time to get to know each date and find your next relationship today.

Over 50s Dating FAQ's

Speed dating for over 50s are singles events tailored for individuals aged 50 and above, to meet other new partners in that age range. Participants engage in a series of short 5 minute dates, allowing them to quickly get to know multiple potential partners in a short time. The events are held in Melbourne bars, and mutual matches are sent the next day. It’s a fun, way for older adults to expand their social circles and potentially find romantic partners without the use of online dating.

Each Speed Dating Social event typically books 20 guys and 20 ladies. Yes I know the gentlemen and this age range can seem scarce but our fortnightly events are always full with equal 50:50 male/female ratios. 

Of course it does, each night you’ll get around 12 instant dates, plus you’ll meet even more people at intermission and mingle time. What’s more being able to chat one on one facilitates the chance of connection so you’ll get more matches and many couples have already found love!

Of course you can come alone or invite friends! Many say it’s easier flying solo as you’ll be more inclined to meet new people then hid behind your friends. Which is at the end of the day why you’re attending in the first play. So by all means invite friends, but if you’re on your own, that’s okay too! 

At Speed Dating Social we hold our Melbourne events typically on Friday and Saturday evenings from 7-9pm. That’s because this is prime time where we get the biggest turnouts and you’ll have heaps of dates and people to meet! 

Our 3 most popular locations are speed dating at Melbourne CBD, Brunswick and South Eastern suburbs. By booking a location that’s closet to you will ensure you meet other singles in your area which will increase your compatibility.
