Features

When signing up to SilverSingles, you’ll be asked to fill out an in-depth questionnaire that includes questions about your personality and qualities that you find attractive/unattractive in a mate. The questions that you fill out about yourself will combine to create your profile, which consists of your name, physical appearance, occupation, education, relationship status, children, children at home, religion, smoking/drinking activity, and ethnicity.

Members can also fill out a “Fun Facts” section, define their “ideal match,” and post a photo. Generally, the more information you include, the more matches you are likely to find. Specifically, profiles with photos are more likely to be responded to than profiles without photos.

When signing up, you can define the type of relationship you’re looking for: straight, gay, or lesbian. You can also choose from the following relationship options: dating, friends, long-term, marriage, and penpal. Of course, you can edit your profile information at any time

Once registered, you can search for other members based on a number of factors:

  • Profile information (including age, location, height, physical appearance, etc.)
  • Distance
  • Who is online
  • New members
  • Members who have viewed you
  • Members who have sent you an e-card

Members of SilverSingles—free or paying—can view the profiles of other members, browse photo personals and a photo gallery. However, only paying members can communicate with each other. They can do this through a variety of options: chat rooms, message boards, live chat, private messaging, anonymous private messaging, ecards, and smiles.

If you’re not sure whether you want to pay for a monthly subscription to SilverSingles, a good option is to start by signing up for free. As a free member, you can still look at other members’ profiles, you just can’t communicate with them. If you see that the site has lots of potential to help you find who you’re looking for, you can then choose the subscription plan that best suits your needs.

Safety & Security

SilverSingles uses industry-standard SSL (secure socket layer) encryption technology to ensure that every member’s financial information is 100% secure. SSL encryption is the same technology used by banks and online financial institutions, so members can rest assured that their payment information is safe.

As for the users themselves, SilverSingles sends a verification email to every new user that signs up in order to maintain the integrity of the site and avoid people who might try to scam the system. It also utilizes a Fraud Detection System to protect members’ personal information.

SilverSingles understands that signing up to a dating site may be a sensitive subject for some people, and thus, the site guarantees not to reveal any personal data to third parties or other members. Practically speaking, this means that if member X emails the SilverSingles support team and asks for member Y’s email address, that information will not be given out.

Prices

SilverSingles offers both free and paid membership—but if you’re serious about finding a partner, the paid option is better, since this option allows you to communicate with other members.

Help & Support

Members and non-members alike can contact SilverSingles via in-site messaging, fax, or snail mail. While the customer support team may not be as available as one might like, the site runs fairly smoothly so that most users don’t actually need to contact them. Also, the site has a helpful FAQ page that has information about setting up your profile and free membership.

Bottom Line

SilverSingles is an appropriate resource for people who are over 50 and looking to create meaningful relationships. With both a free and paid option, users can do whatever feels most comfortable for them, and with numerous communication tools, it’s easier than ever for members to connect with one another.

It is a wonderful site for singles over 50 years of age. I am 56, and the site gives me a chance to meet other singles in my age range.

I just thought I would try it and check it out. I thought it was cool to use and inexpensive and good for my ego

I have met a lot of potential mates on this site. I always enjoy the company when I go out on dates I've met on SilverSingles.

Easy to use, but high priced. there are plenty of choices close to me. It is kind of hard to respond to some ads.

Over all it was OK and easy to use, but I was not impressed with the people on there and going that way (internet) to try to meet people. It seems easier to go live to places and interact in real time.

I tried this service and found it wanting. Everything was dependent on using a credit card for entering the site

Limited search results, no way to tell the other person you are not interested, limited daily matches

Most of their clients don't post pictures of them self. You tell them close to where I live and I get posting hundreds of miles away. Won't rejoin when my membership is done

Kim, CA

They send you people way out of your parameters...that you've set! Also, for an erroneous charge, they did not refund me in total!

Janice, NY

Not easy to maneuver the website. Was unable to connect with a date. I think they could make a lot of improvements on the website.
