Dating can be fun and playful, but who says it's for the young only? At Dating For Seniors, singles looking for committed relationships or casual dates come together to create an active and supportive silver-haired community.

Apart from functions that enable members to interact quickly and form a love connection, Dating For Seniors also offers channels where singles can express their views, ask for advice, and even present their artistic sides. 

With its plentiful features, it seems like you’re bound to find friendship and love in no time. But can you? We dived into the world of senior dating by inspecting every feature and cost of Dating For Seniors. Read on to find out if it’s worth your time.

  • Top visitors are mostly from the United States, Australia, and New Zealand

  • Most users are 55 years old and above
  • The majority prefers accessing the website via desktop

At Dating For Seniors, the ratio between men and women seems balanced, with the males making up 60% of the entire population. 

Since its a senior dating site, the majority of the members are already in their mid-50s and up. Some members may be younger, 34, and below, but overall, the website is an active community for silver singles looking to find friendship, dates, or another shot at love.

Top visitors of the senior dating website come from English-speaking countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. The site also has several members from European countries like Germany, Sweden, and Ireland.

Since most of the members are already seniors, it’s not a surprise that they were once married, divorced, or widowed. Most of them are also parents or even grandparents; what you have here are empty-nesters who are looking for companionship and romantic love.

Lastly, Dating For Seniors also welcomes lesbian or gay members; the community is all for finding love no matter their age and preference.

Signing Up

Dating For Seniors Registration
  • 10-15 minute registration
  • Difficult sign-up process
  • Required to customize profile right after registration
  • Receive matches right after signing up
  • Facebook registration is offered and is an easier option

Signing up at Dating For Seniors is quite challenging. We found ourselves repeatedly trying to complete the registration form. 

To save your head from the imminent frustration-induced hair pulling, here are a few pointers that may be of help to potential members:

  • Use letters and simple characters or punctuation for your nominated username and password. The website won't accept any other fancy stylizations.
  • Consider using your Facebook account to register. For some reason, signing up using your email may lead to a frustrating cycle of clicking the ‘Create Account’ button then getting redirected to the homepage prompting you to sign up again. It takes quite some time before you can finally register, and using your Facebook account will help you do away with this time-consuming cycle.

Signing up using the form will require you to input your email address, nominated username and password, and your birthdate. You will also need to choose which among the two options is your orientation and preference. Your location is geotagged, but you can correct it if it’s inaccurate. 

If you choose to go for Facebook registration, click the ‘Log in with Facebook’ button. You will be asked to key in your Facebook email address and password. Take care to limit the dating site’s access to your account, so you are still secured.

After a successful sign up you’ll be asked to customize your profile immediately. You will provide details on topics like your physique, marital and parental status, your personality and views, your hobbies, and your ideal type. 

Building your profile can be time-consuming. Although this portion is skippable, we encourage you to do it in one go; the moderators routinely verify accounts. Your incomplete profile may be closed immediately, and this leaves you no choice but to sign up again. 

Frankly, the challenging registration may deter potential scammers or frauds from signing up, but this may also discourage the target demographic from registering. Given that the older population is not as tech-savvy, trying to find a way to successfully sign up may get them eventually fed up with the dating site.

Profile Quality

Dating For Seniors Profile
  • Profiles are very detailed
  • Profiles are regulated and checked by the moderators
  • Easy to supply and edit information
  • View full-sized photos for free

    After signing up, a complete profile will be the next thing that Dating For Seniors will require. Since the website asks quite a lot of details, the members’ profiles are one of the most detailed we’ve seen among senior dating sites.

    For starters, a member’s profile information is split into eight sections. Since browsing a member’s complete profile is for free, reading all eight can already help you form a solid impression of your potential date’s personality, status, and hobbies.

    The first section is a thumbnail and shortcut of some sort. It will bear your username and primary photo. Right below the picture will be contacting buttons: “Message,” “Flirt,” and “Ask If H/She’s Interested” links so you can block or report the member will also be in this section.

    To the right of the thumbnail will be the member’s age, location, and preference. Necessary information such as the language they speak, zodiac sign, and description will be in this section as well as the space to compose a quick message for the member.

    The rest of the member’s profile will include:

    • Appearance and Situation

    This section will consist of your answers on questions regarding your physique, marital and parental status, body art, pets, and plans for relocation.

    • Status

    Answers regarding your professional life and living situation will be featured here. This section will also include your smoking and drinking habits, if applicable.

    • Personality

    This portion will detail how you are as a person so potential matches can gauge if you’ll fit each other. You’ll be asked to pick adjectives to describe how you were in high school, your social behavior, interests, and hobbies, your idea of a great time, and your friends’ description of you.

    • Views

    Your religion, political opinion, and your type of humor will be featured in the ‘Views’ section.

    • Taste

    One of the most natural connections to make is when you both share a favorite show, movie, or music. In the Taste section, define your favorite television, movies, and music genres. This section can also be a good source for icebreakers.

    • Looking For

    Detail your preference by sharing the qualities you prefer in a partner. The relationship or commitment level you are also looking for can be shared here.

    The very detailed profiles at Dating For Seniors may be a tad tedious to build, but it can help you match with a like-minded member. 

    App

    Dating For Seniors Mobile
    • No mobile app available
    • The website can be accessed through mobile browsers
    • All desktop features present in the mobile version
    • Easy to navigate

    Our in-depth review showed that most of the users of Dating For Seniors access the website via their desktop computers. Given that the majority are seniors, their preference may be a reflection of their technological capabilities. They may find a desktop computer much more comfortable to navigate than a smartphone.

    Still, for the tech-savvy singles, Dating For Seniors also offers a mobile-responsive website. Since most of their users are on desktops, it’s understandable that the colors and functions are all the same for both gadgets. That way, navigating the website on either of the two platforms won’t be as confusing for the senior singles.

    Overall, Dating For Senior’s lack of a mobile app is not a cause for concern. Its users are mostly on desktops, and it offers a pretty solid alternative to on-the-go members, which is the mobile-friendly website design.

    Real Life Review

    "My wife died about a decade ago and my now-grown kids always told me to go out and enjoy life again. They actually set up this account for me, so all I had to do was take over the browsing and messaging aspects. I’ve built friendships over this website, but I’m not sure if I’m ready to fall in love again. Still, it’s nice to know a lot of us are still looking for another shot at love."
    - James, 72, Retired Fireman

    Design & Usability

    Since it’s a dating website for seniors, the aptly named Dating For Seniors features a simple, and to a point, outdated look that is easy to navigate.

    The color white dominates the website with the color red serving as an accent. The site uses clean font styles and blocks which effectively define the different sections of the website. 

    The dating site’s main header includes links to the following sections: Home, Search, Who’s Online, Browse Photos, My Profile, Setting. One can also access their messages and change their preferred language settings using the main header.

    Overall, the website is easy to navigate and is friendly and familiar for the older demographic who is the target audience of the dating platform.

    Payment Options
    • Credit Card

    Getting around Dating For Seniors on a free account is fine, but you’ll only be getting half the fun. If you’re in it for a connection, consider subscribing to a paid membership. A word on subscriptions: one beef we had with the website is that it was hard to see their pricelist.

    Unlike other dating sites that feature their cost upfront, you’ll only know how much you’re going to pay once you’re actually on the verge of paying for a subscription.

    The website offers monthly deals covering one and three months. If you feel like it’s too soon to commit, Dating For Seniors also provides an affordable 3-Day Trial: at $2.95 (roughly $0.98 a day), explore the website without limits to help you decide if you should avail the monthly subscriptions.

    An auto-renewal function will ensure that you will enjoy the website’s functionalities without pause as it renews your subscription right before its expiry. If you wish to cancel your paid membership, head out to the Help/FAQ section of the website. 

    Once there, scroll down to the Membership and Billing section and click the “How do I cancel my paid membership?” question. Select the “Cancel My Paid Membership” link and follow the additional instructions to complete cancelation.
