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 revolutionize 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.

Great Dating App

I only gave four stars because my distance setting keeps changing. I have not been bombarded by scammers. I started talking to someone within 48 hours and it has been nice to find someone so fast that has so many of the same ideas, likes and common interests. I have tried a lot of dating apps and this one and one other had more real people. Keep the scammers off, stop changing the distance and please don’t send likes that aren’t actually from that person and you will top the market. Also keep your premium prices down and more people will be will to pay and stay longer! Thanks for a great app!!

Hi there, thanks so much for your feedback! We're so pleased to hear you're enjoying Lumen.

We found that users were missing out on someone special as their search criteria was too narrow. The app will reset your distance filters periodically so you don't miss out on seeing great people within your area.

Love from Lumen!

try to make it easier for us to reach one another by enabling us to post more pictures and leave more comments making it easier to go back on the ones we declined sometimes i accidentally decline someone and cant go back to find them open up for more conversation it seems like alot of the conversation is small talk and not personal enough it’s hard to get one another to a more personal level i know we have to have a connection but you gotta make it easier remember this generation is not the milinials a lot of us are still old fashioned and not a customed to dating on line so it’s hard for us to take that step to get to the next level of the relationship and a lot of us are new to dating because we have recently gone through a divorce remember we are on this ap because we want to find someone but it’s new to us and we are cautious and some what leary on who we want try to some how make it more relaxed and maybe make it to where we converse more to one another instead of us just waiting for the small talk responses
maybe put daily alerts that force us to converse more ( maybe force is the wrong word but just trying to get my point across ) work on it thats why and what we expect or your gonna lose us sad to say but you have alot of competition so get er done .....
remember you asked for my insight so there it is

Heteronormative and rigid!!

I was excited when I saw the clever billboards for this app around LA. It seemed hip and fun. Sadly, it’s neither.

There are absolutely no LGBT options and the only gender options are male and female. Lumen, do you seriously believe everyone over 50 is heteronormative? Seriously? So I am supposed to risk repercussions for accidentally “liking” heteronormative individuals since I cannot tell their orientation? No thank you.

If that isn’t bad enough, and it is, the photo criteria is ridiculous. You are encouraged to add at least one full body photo of yourself. Makes sense. But if the photo is obviously taken using a mirror it will instantly, and I mean within minutes if not seconds be removed. Where is the logic in that?

The photo policies are not evenly enforced. When my mirror selfie was immediately taken down I asked Lumen why. They pointed out that my photo was “taken INFANT of a mirror” and said they want to show the clearest of each other (with no sexual orientation information, and only two gender options) with no watermarks, captions or text overlaid. Yet I saw a profile photo with cartoon stars overlaid. Surely that is less of a clear representation of one’s self than a mirror selfie.

Uninstalling, disappointed.

Hey there, thanks for your feedback, I'll be sure to let the Product Team know that you would like to see more genders. Anyone who you are searching for will also be looking for the gender that you have chosen. We'd like to look into this issue for you - please can you message us on Facebook we'll look into why this picture was removed.
