Dating service for older adults
Let’s take a look at nine things you (probably) didn’t know about dating for older adults: It seems counter-intuitive to say that people characterized by one attribute — how old they are — don’t care as much about age when looking for a companion, but it’s true.
Young people are incredibly age-prejudiced, to such an extent that age is one of the most important filter criteria used to find a match on online dating sites. Age is the second-most important attribute used to help users determine if they’re interested in a potential match (after the photo).
Use of the site includes a monthly fee for paying members, and includes features such as photos, video, and audio greetings — just in case you want to see and hear your potential match.
You can download the i Phone and Android app, which both seem to be fairly serviceable.
This helps keep your public identity somewhat disguised.
When you find someone you like, you can inform them of your other profile so they can get a complete idea/look at who you are.
The site is easy to use, even for the mature crowd that the site appeals to.
According to datingadvice.com, the site features millions of monthly visitors and a higher ratio or women to men, which is a rarity on some dating sites.
Really, if I was young enough, I’d probably use the app in hopes of hanging out with people while traveling.
The app seems to work best when the bonus features are purchased, as is the case with most dating apps made for seniors or not.
The search, messaging, and other features of both the i Phone and Android app seems to be user friendly and visually appealing enough.
More and more people on Ok Cupid (and other sites such as Plenty of Fish (POF)) use two different profiles.
One profile contains great photos and little information, while the other contains great info and vague photos.
And with Valentine’s day looming, you might be interested in finding a match soon. Just as there are better places in real life for the more mature crowd to find a match, there are also dating apps better suited for slightly older soul mate searchers. The site features an answer/question section, pictures (seemingly an unlimited amount of pictures), an About Me profile, and a desired match section.
