Senior Friendfinder is for people in their 50, 60's and beyond. The site attracts around 39,000 users most of whom are seeking companionship and romance. While it's possible to use the site for at no cost, communication with other members is limited until a subscription is purchased. Membership starts at $22.94 per month.
Senior FriendFinder was created for persons who are older but certainly not "over the hill". People join the site looking for romantic relationships as well as new friends, travel companions, or in some cases, just pen-pals. Seniors listed in the site may have been married previously, widowed or never been married. The only difference is their age and or the age of those they are seeking.
Friend Finder sites typically offer an excellent range of features that make finding and making new friends easy. Senior Friendfinder is no exception. The profiles appearing are some of the most in-depth around, and you can expect to get some good responses when listed due to its popularity.
Registration, standard membership
On registering you'll need to create a basic personal profile, and enter a few details about yourself - just enough to get started. This will gain you access into the members' area, and enables you to start browsing for others matching your preferences.
While there arn't so many users as say Senior People Meet (read more), there are nevertheless enough people to make joining worthwhile, and find compatible matches.
Standard members can't access the detailed options on the search forms and can only reply to emails (they can't initiate contact with anyone other than sending flirts - unless that person happens to have paid for the privilege of letting free members communicate with them).
Groups and activities
If you have a hobby or special interest that you're passionate about, the profile search lets you find people who may share your interest. There's a wide choice of hobby categories, ranging from gardening to skiing. Standard members have access to user written advice articles and the site's magazine.
They can also use the site's instant messenger tool, a handy piece of software that enables users across the entire Friendfinder Network to message one another.
Those who choose to upgrade to the Gold package will gain access to other features such as video greetings, unlimited profile pictures, hot list storage capacity, etc.
Members also have the option to create their own personalized blogs. You don't need to be a member to browse though these blogs. Some of them are quite entertaining and informative. Reading the opinions of other members is a good way to get a feel for the site.
