Our Review

People Media's SeniorBlackPeopleMeet embraces diversity by being the niche dating website for older, black singles. Although you don't have to be black to create an account, most of the members are black or of black descent. This site is not for the young this time, rather it is for the old. Whoever said that love should only be for teens and young adults anyway? With the existence of this website, the idea of finding love during the later part of life is normalized. With its low priced premium subscription and a wide variety of dating features, this site looks to be promising. But is it? In this in-depth review, we delved deeply into SeniorBlackPeopleMeet to see if it is worth the money and worth your time. Read on below to see what we've found out!

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out
  • Top visitors are from the United States, Jamaica, and Ghana
  • Female users outnumber male members
  • An average of 350 members are online every day
  • Majority of the members are 55 years old and up
  • Most of the members have straight orientation and are looking for marriage

SeniorBlackPeopleMeet caters to the minority so it shouldn't come as a surprise that there is a low number of registered and active members combined in this site. The dating platform receives an average of 300 new, monthly customers and 350 online users per day. Ninety-nine percent of its visitors are mostly from the United States while the remaining one percent are from Jamaica and Ghana.

While the majority of the members are 55 years old and up, women outnumber the men with a 3:1 ratio. If you are a single man looking for ladies, then you wouldn't have a hard time looking. If it is the complete opposite, single men on this site are not that numerous. 

If you are thinking of signing up on this site, take note that most of its members are looking for a life partner. Casual dating and hookups are scarce in this site.

Signing Up

SeniorBlackPeopleMeet Registration
  • 2-3 minute registration process
  • No email verification needed
  • No Facebook registration available
  • Zip code is needed to create an account
  • Straightforward and uncomplicated signup process

This dating platform is specifically tailored for older singles. Their target group is obviously way older than other dating platforms. However, its user interface seems to be complicated and not very friendly for the older generation.

One major instance is the registration process. When you go to this website, the landing page does not look like it has any clickable buttons. In fact, it only has the highlighted texts that would lead to other pages. The eyes would, of course, immediately go to the orange "Log In" text. But what about those that didn't have an account in the first place? Although you can see the "Sign Up FREE and Browse" text, the words are not highlighted or even clickable. There are no clickable buttons in sight at first glance. 

Of course, being much more tech-savvy, we figured things out immediately by clicking on the orange "Search" button. However, this type of layout may not be the most efficient way for the older generation. The landing page might appear complicated and uninviting to some. A Facebook registration, which would have made signing up a lot smoother and easier, is not available.

Getting past that, once you've clicked on the orange "Search" button, you are redirected to the sign-up page. You will choose from the given choices about your gender, preference, and country. There are only two countries available to choose from--the United States and Canada. After that, you are asked to input your area's zip code, email address, and preferred password. Once you've completed your step, you now have a fully functioning account you can use. 

Making Contact

SeniorBlackPeopleMeetMembers
  • You can flirt, view, and favorite other members for free
  • You can't see who's flirted, favorited, and viewed you unless you are a premium member
  • The chat function is available for paying members only
  • Members near your location will appear in your matches more often than far away ones
  • The site creates matches for you
  • There is a chatroom

SeniorBlackPeopleMeet provides a lot of ways to contact other members. However, most of these features are inaccessible or limited in such a way that a free member won't really get that much use out of them at all.

You can view other profiles and like people's photos. You can flirt or favorite other members. But unless you are a paying member, you will not have access to the chat function and see who has flirted and favorited you back. Think of it as hearing without seeing. You will get notified whenever someone wants to connect with you but unless you're on the premium account, you won't be able to see their profiles.

Sadly, there is not much usability for this site unless you pay. You can, however, signup for free and get a feel of this site first. If you see something that interests you about this site and the premium fee--it is already very cheap--is well within your capabilities, then, by all means, invest in SeniorBlackPeopleMeet. 

Profile Quality

SeniorBlackPeopleMeet Profile
  • Profiles with photos get ten times more messages
  • Photos are not reviewed by the admin team
  • There are "Message Ideas" which serve as conversation starters for members in each profile
  • There are personality questions you can answer
  • Photos can be viewed for free
  • The profiles are quite detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free

Profiles on SeniorBlackPeoplemeet are very detailed. Although it isn't mandatory to complete your profile, the site has an effective way of reminding you to. For example, when you log in, you automatically land to a page where you can upload your profile picture with a message saying you are essentially invisible without photos.

The reason behind that is, members can filter out profiles that have no photos. They can opt not to see any photoless profiles in search filters. Contrary to other websites, photos are automatically displayed on the profiles on SeniorBlackPeopleMeet. There is no admin support to review each photo.

During our dating site excursion, we have found zero nudes and vulgar photos despite virtually no photo guidelines and policing. In fact, the photos displayed are quite respectable and decent.

Still, we highly recommend completing your profile to not only optimize the matchmaking process but also to increase your authenticity. You can fill up basic information such as education, income, status, physical appearance, pets, political affiliation, ethnicity and etc.

There are some fields you may want to actually write your own answers to. These are fields asking about who you are and what you are looking for. By filling these out yourself, you get to show your personality and perhaps, sense of humor. 

There are also personality questions. You can answer by choosing the option that best answers the question. This can also help you flesh out your personality more without hassling you to write from scratch.

Lastly, there are message ideas you can select for your account. These are a variety of questions which will be displayed at the bottom of your profile. This is a great way to help you learn about those who contact you. You can choose up to four questions that people who are interested in you may answer when they send you a message. Think of it as a conversation starter. 

App

SeniorBlackPeopleMeet Mobile
  • The site does not have an app
  • It can be accessed via mobile browser
  • It is optimized for mobile browsing
  • Looks much more organized on mobile compared to the PC version

Although SeniorBlackPeopleMeet does not have a mobile app available, you can still access this dating website through your mobile phone's browser. Surprisingly, the site is optimized for mobile browsing. It looks much neater and easier to use on mobile. 

Even though it is not the ideal set-up for on the go users, it still provides a good, convenient alternative to a mobile app. The user interface is much more intuitive and organized. You can still create your account, send flirts, favorite people, browse profiles, and view photos via your mobile phone. 

Real Life Review

"My wife and I divorced a year ago. I was lonely and I felt isolated. I didn't feel so good about myself either. I was at the lowest point of my life. I mean, who would be interested in dating a 63-year-old black man? I thought it's already too late for me to go back to the dating scene. Then, a friend of mine recommended this site to me called SeniorBlackPeopleMeet. I decided to give it a try and I was amazed at how many older black singles I've found on here. I chatted with a few. I paid the subscription fee since it is cheap. There's not a lot of activity available if you have a free account anyway. So I decided to invest. I may have not met "the one," as the youngsters would put it. But I am in a much better place now. I'm still learning how to navigate around this website since the design looks complicated for an old guy like me. All in all, this site is okay," - Miller, 63

Design and Usability

For a site that has been developed to cater to older people, SeniorBlackPeopleMeet may come off as having a very confusing and complicated design layout. The user interface could have been made much simpler and less complicated. Plus, the website appears more like a business site rather than a romantic one with its signature blue color. 

Since the website has a handful of features to offer its users, the buttons of these features are arranged in a way that may overwhelm people at first. However, once you've gotten the hang of it, you'd be surprised to find that the website can actually be navigated easily. It might seem a lot to take in at first glance but SeniorBlackPeopleMeet can be quickly learned. 

All in all, the website has the potential to be better--concept and design-wise.

Editors Conclusion

Chris Pleines
If you are a widower, a divorcee, or just plain single who fears that it might be a tad too late in life to find a partner, SeniorBlackPeopleMeet is definitely a good website you can try. It offers a lot of features you can use to meet and connect with other people. Plus, the premium services it offers are relatively low priced compared to other mainstream dating sites. However, the main drawbacks are its low number of active members and unappealing, user-unfriendly layout. If you can look past that and see potential in SeniorBlackPeopleMeet, then be sure to give this one a try. Who knows, maybe this is just what you need to get a move on in life. Sign up now.
