Lumen is the first ever dating app specifically designed for over 50s. Meet like-minded people in a fun, safe space, and find someone to share life’s adventures with.

We want to revolutionise senior dating and online dating by offering quality conversations with genuine people. 100% of our profiles are verified and we have a key focus on fun and adventure. ‘Mature dating’ doesn’t have to be a euphemism for dry and boring. Online dating doesn’t come with age limits. Senior dating should just mean you can chat to people the same age as you - not that dating suddenly has to be boring.


Our dating app lets singles aged 50 and over
· Browse other Lumen member profiles
· Start conversations with other Lumen members
· Respond to messages from other Lumen members
· Discover like-minded singles based on common interests
· Know that everyone on the app is who they say they are - as they’ve proved their identity


You’re over 50 and single, and this really is the prime of your life. You’ve never felt better. Your kids have flown the nest, and you finally have the time and money to do the things that you love. But you don’t want to do those things alone. Maybe you’ve considered online dating but worry it’s not for you.
That’s where Lumen comes in. This is the dating app specifically designed for your generation. Mature dating for the young at heart.

There are millions of other people in the exact same situation as you. Men and women who know that being over 50 doesn’t mean winding down. Single people just like you, who are passionate about travel, the arts, sport or food. Individuals who don’t see midlife as the beginning of the end, but as a fresh new chapter. And this is your opportunity to meet them.


At Lumen, we know the world of dating has changed, and you might not have found a space where you feel you belong. And so we are dedicated to creating a dating app where it’s as simple as possible for you to meet like-minded people. This is mature dating with a difference. Safety is something which is important to us, as is honesty. We want you to form genuine connections with real people, and so every person on our app is verified. You are matched with others based on the interests which are important to you. And our app is designed to encourage meaningful conversations.

Good, could be great

The app gives you access to real profiles by real people. The sign up process filters out the junk. You still get instagram filtered face pics which you ignore. The contacts I’ve made have been good and genuine. Dating is a numbers game and the daily message limit, even on premium is insufficient. A request would be to establish a home location as this located you every time you open the app. The chat input screen is far too small for old fat fingers to work comfortably and you find yourself going ‘off line’ to get a real conversation going. The real issue is tech support which is very poor. I’ve been waiting almost a week to get a subscription bug fixed and am no closer as I type. Don

Refreshingly Accessible and Free with plenty of potential dates.

The fact that the message and view functionality on the site are free is fantastic. I initially thought this may attract people who just want to mess around but it appears not to be the case - for me anyway. I got a high response at first which then dropped off but is now a steady trickle which suits me perfectly. The profile page could allow for more info but then again it’s there to spark interest not tell a life story. Site functionality overall is very good - easily accessible and navigable. No technical issues in the three months I’ve been in either. I recently met a kind, genuine, funny, attractive man on here so hopefully won’t need your services any further. Hat’s off to Lumen and thank you.

Apparently I can curate my favourites - whatever that means, but I can’t even create any. If would appear that you can make someone a favourite or chat to them. But I don’t want to create a favourite based on looks or profile - what’s on the inside is more important - and you can’t really see personality from a profile. After talking to them you can get a bit of an insight, but after you start chatting to them it’s too late to make them a favourite.
Pity because otherwise I quite like the app. Despite the fact that of the dozen or so messages Ive sent, less than half have replied and half of those were to say they didn’t think I was what they were looking for - mind you I wouldn’t pick me based on my looks, but then again I’m not really my type. But I’m having a good conversation with one of the connections, giving me hope for the future
