This place is for mature people in their 50s, 60s and beyond who want to find companionship or romance later in life. The community is large, with around 481,000 active members. It's free to register and create a picture profile but payment is required to enable full communication with other users.
The bland appearance doesn't entice you in at all. However some friendly features such as live video chat makes getting to know others a hassle free process.
To get started, you simply sign-up free of charge and create a profile adding your own personal details and preferences.
The registration is designed to be a simple process with multiple choice questions - during the last step you'll have an opportunity to write an "about me" section and describe your ideal partner.
After uploading a photo, the profile is considered complete and you can get on your way to finding a compatible match. There's also an option to add a video or audio introduction (though you will need to upgrade to be able to view other videos).
Photos are not compulsory however they are strongly recommended - profiles with photos almost always receive more attention than those without.
The site does not actively moderate profiles, meaning as a member you will need to remain vigilant and wary of any potential scams. The site offers a number of practical safety tips and lists "red-flags" to watch out for.
As a free member, you'll be able to peruse the site, view profiles, and send interest notifications. You will also receive daily matches to which you can signify your interest by clicking "yes", "no" or "maybe". Making contact by email is a premium feature and requires an upgrade.
You won't get very far without a credit card. In fact a paid membership is required to access the majority of the site's features and privileges. Paid memberships come in one, six or twelve month increments. Specials are regularly available, and usually offer perks such as profile highlighting for an extra dollar per month.
SeniorPeopleMeet.com largely caters to an older demographic but invites individuals of all ages to join the site. So you might find people much younger on there.
Using the advance search option, you can locate a compatible match close to home or anywhere around the globe and in your chosen age range.
