Silver Singles is for the older, more mature woman or man. The site is owned by the Sparks group and offers a safe and convenient online venue for older people to find companionship, love or romance.
Signing up is free and takes less than a minute. After providing your contact details, you'll be asked to provide your location (or nearest city), followed by some particulars about yourself such as your appearance, occupation, marital status, and number children.
Once this is completed, your profile is created immediately and you can start using the site. Members can opt to stick with the free guest membership or go for the Premium option that gives them access to features such as instant messaging and chat.
Finding other compatible matches is quite simple using the site's Ideal Match software. Once members find someone they would like to meet, they can send a message or ecard using their very own onsite personal email. The "Think You'd Click?" button next to member profiles allows you to see if someone is interested in you without the hassle of sending them an email. When you click this button, the site approaches the other member on your behalf to find out if they like you or not.
While Silver Singles focuses on the 50+ set, individuals of 18 years of age and older are still welcome to join. The site offers numerous features that will help you to find your perfect match, and while the member database is not huge, for those living in major cities, particularly the U.S., there should be opportunities to meet other local seniors.
Is it Worth It?
The features are fairly typical of other dating sites of this kind, the main drawback is the very low activity on the site - with only around 7,000 finding nearby matches can be tricky (depending on your location).
Other quality sites for the more mature include Senior FriendFinder and Senior Match.
The site also provides relevant dating articles, including tips and tricks for easing into the world of safe, online dating.
