You're not alone in your singleness. Some six million individual people signed up for a form of dating service this past year in the UK. That figure almost doubled from the previous year. Even better news, the 50+ group is the fastest growing sector.
What is known as 'offline' or 'organic' dating - a chance meeting with someone face to face - is still popular but might be more challenging.
Speed dating tends to have as its cut-off age - 45 regarding women, 49 for guys - though many in their 50s sneak under the wire.
Other kind of icebreaker events such as dinner dating, dance dating, lock and key parties, also wine tasting, are mostly aimed at the 27-45 year olds.
Traditional introduction agencies close the doors at women over 45 and men over 50.
But avoid being dismayed, there are outlets with doors that are ever open!
How to get back into the dating game
The internet actually helps those who find offline internet dating adventures too nightmarish. Online dating enables you to write about yourself, put up your photograph, read others' profiles, scan through their photos, make the first tentative methods to greet someone, swap 'hellos' via email, possibly talk on the phone first. A lot can take place between two people before you even think about arranging a meeting.
