A place where younger men and older women can get together for dating and anything else. Members from all backgrounds and all walks of life are here. This pay site, from Successful Match is free for women and has a free restricted guest membership for men. Paying users are allowed to send unlimited messages and use premium features.
If you can't resist a mature woman, Older Women Dating is the place to be. This niche matchmaking site has made its mark by creating a hub for age gap relationships, or more precisely for relationships between younger men and older women.
It's not the cheapest site out there by a long shot, but the service you get is pretty good on balance. They do a decent job of keeping the membership clean by ejecting scammers and other undesirables. And if you're thinking this site seems just like CougarMingle.com you'd be right. They've changed their name.
Cougars, the urban dictionary tells us, are older females (35+) who “prey” on young men. While relationships between older men and younger women have been going on for years and draw little attention, dating between older women and younger men is much less common.
Nevertheless, relationships with big age gaps can and do work for many people, and it's the aim of the site to bring such people together. You'll find thousands of members seeking just such a relationship.
As well as drawing in people looking for a “one-off fling” with an older (or younger) person, you'll find a few people seeking longer-term, more serious relationships and even marriage. Joining is free and is a simple process. Once inside, you can fully customize your profile, state your preferences in a potential partner, and upload photographs of yourself if you wish.
To find your match use the partner search option. The search has a number of advanced setting to help refine your matches. However some of these are only accessible if you pay.
While you can receive emails and flirts as a free member and do simple searches, in order to reply to others and have access to the other services on the site, you will need to upgrade to Gold membership.
Is it Worth It?
OlderWomenDating.com, which belongs to the Successful Match group of sites, has a familiar layout, with all of the tools you'd expect on an internet matchmaking site. The search page, allows you to narrow your choice by specifying things such as location, age range, appearance and religion among other things.
While it doesn't have a huge database of members, it is a niche site and is well suited to those seeking a relationship with a partner from a different age group.
