@Midgekin - Periodically, AARP does an article on a subject, and includes links to discussions in Online Community. I doubt they bother checking how old the most recent posting was, so suddenly there's a flurry of new activity when a discussion's been over for a long time.

@ASTRAEA  - Thanks those were some great responses to @Midgekin.

 

AARP did test a dating partnership a few years ago and it just wasn't a great fit.  There are dating sites that are businesses solely for that purpose and AARP's mission is not to become that.  We are here to help members connect with one another on like subject matters and we can tell you that many have made lifelong friends here online.  We hope that you are also interested in finding others to discuss a wide array of topics and that you will find friends that are interested in discussing similar subject matter.

 

Let us know if we can help you or have additional questions.

Honestly, my interest in any of the dating websites is almost non-existent at this point.  It's hard enough to trust people you meet in person let alone those hiding behind an online "persona".  I posted the original query quite some time ago and am quite surprised to all of a sudden have a flurry of responses.  As for me, I'm not interested in going down the online path at this time.

@Midgekin - I don't work for AARP, but I will say that they "helped" one of the singles groups in Online Community, by assigning two "dating experts" to it. All I'll say is based on their "help", I wouldn't want to participate in a dating website AARP managed.

Thanks for the education on why AARP does not have a dating website.  The information certainly explains the reasoning behind why there isn't a dating website associated with AARP.

@Midgekin@SizlinTeapot620 - I think that AARP tried to do something of a dating website way back. But the reality is that people here/AARP members expected it to be free, whereas other better quality dating websites charge for their services. AARP members expected participants to be "checked out", so it would be safe .. but it's a very expensive proposition to do any level of background checks, and would be very risky if AARP implied that they did "check people out", but that wasn't as thorough as people expected. So bottom line is that while there are several singles discussion groups here, to my knowledge there's no "Dating Website" as such.

The reason for my initial post was that I was asking "why AARP doesn't have a dating site".  No one seemed to know.  To my knowledge you still need to go outside of AARP's site to one of the many websites that offer dating apps.  Good luck and be careful!
