With their over 15 years of experience in online senior dating business, SeniorMatch.com claims to be the most effective and the largest dating site for seniors and baby boomers.
At first look, the site gives a professional feel as it uses bigger fonts for easier reading experience for its senior users. To maintain its quality as a senior dating site, SeniorMatch focuses on members over 50 years of age and does not allow members under 30. This is a plus, as many other online dating site members (particularly seniors) complain about getting contacted by younger members who are not actually serious about dating. But SeniorMatch is purely designed for seniors, which guarantees that you will only get connected with singles of your age group for dating, serious relationship, friendship, or pen-pal.
Sign up is also simple and involves only 2 steps which is very convenient and easy for placing a free profile on the site.After signing up for free, you can upload photos of your profile. Another great feature is that you have an option to verify your age, education, photo, etc. to get the corresponding badges on your profile. Those badges are indications that you are a real member and serious about dating. It is useful for searching other profiles too because when you see a member with a corresponding badge, you’ll know that information on his/her profile is real and can be trusted.
There are limited things you can do as a standard member; you can search for others members, however, the search feature is pretty basic. You can also send free winks to members you want to become acquainted with and if you receive an email from a gold member on the site, you can reply back too. However, you cannot start a conversation and initiate emails to other members. Only gold members can initiate emails.
A senior forum is also associated with the site. On that forum you can communicate with other senior members on different ideas and topics. A blog which is available for every member, allows you to record your experiences. Commenting system is also available as members can comment on other member’s profiles or profile photos.
The main concern about online dating sites is that there are a lot of scammers on those sites with fake profiles who waste time of serious members. SeniorMatch has a cure for that, it bans fake and low quality profiles to make the online dating environment safer.
There are a lot of other great features on the site that help their members in finding ideal matches. Standard membership has its limitations and only basic features are available to its members as mentioned above. To enjoy full features like advanced search function, initiating emails to other members, etc., the site encourages its standard members to upgrade to gold membership.
