A guide to your first granny date

Last Updated:

If you are new to Granny dating, then you may be wondering what you can do with your granny for your first date. After all, dating a senior who is over 50 means that not all activities will be possible for the two of you. Fortunately, there are some surefire activities and tips to make sure it goes well!

To begin with, you should pick an activity or location that is relatively quiet but not entirely empty. Pick a time that isn’t too late in the day to make sure she will be energetic for your date. Don’t forget that you should also find something that isn’t too cold.

Haven’t met your granny yet? Try these places and dating sites exclusively for younger men and older women.

Good activities for a first date for a granny should also include a way for the two of you to communicate and get to know each other a little better. For example, good places to take things slow and chat while possibly having a bite to eat or some coffee include:

  • Restaurant
  • Cafés
  • Walks in the park
  • Hobby groups like book clubs
  • Pubs or beer gardens

On top of that, you should make an effort to ensure that your date feels comfortable, safe, and is entertained.  Be empathetic for their situation and respectful of them always. This will give them the best impression possible to ensure your date goes well.

Places for your perfect first granny date

We have already mentioned a few date locations to take your granny for your first date, but you can also plan something a little differently with your date depending on her own interests. This will always depend on how mobile she is, of course, and whether she’s walking on her own.

If she can walk on her own and is pretty mobile, then a longer walk is always nice. You could even plan on a hike somewhere romantic, perhaps in an area where wine is made or that is at least scenic. She might also be interested in a type of sport, so perhaps the two of you could go enjoy that.

If she isn’t as mobile, then a date to the theater or perhaps an opera show would be a good place for the both of you to sit and enjoy yourselves. You may not be able to speak so freely during something like this, but it will give you plenty to talk about.

Otherwise, we do recommend first date locations like cafés, restaurants, bars and other places that serve drinks and food.

How to act on your first granny date

Because she is older and you are looking to woo her with an element of class, you should make sure that you treat her respectfully. One of the benefits of dating an older woman is that she is someone who most likely has more experience than you with dating and will know what she should expect out of her date.

It is important not to be too vigorous or aggressive with her on your date either. Seniors are not as spry as they used to be and can be more prone to injury than others. Take things slow and let her set the pace for your date so that you can both relax and enjoy yourselves.

If she is much older than you, you may feel a little awkward with being together in public. However, most people can appreciate people who are sincere and open with what they find attractive. You should instead feel emboldened by having the courage to proudly date someone much older!

Is there a free granny dating site?

Yes and no. There are many dating services that cater to granny dating, ranging from those that do offer free services and those that offer a free membership that includes the option to upgrade into something advanced with better matching and chatting services.

We recommend that you consider a site that has the option to upgrade its service. Sites like SeniorsToDate, SilverSingles, and TrueLifePartner all offer excellent free and paid services that make contacting single seniors easier than ever before. They are also safe with high active members.

These sites can be an excellent way to first meet your granny date, and with an idea on where to take her and how to act, you can set yourself up for a romantic experience that will be memorable.
