Senior Friend Finder is an established international dating site that specialises in connecting men and women over 60 who are looking for love, new friends, activity partners, companionship and more. The site has been going for a long time, so it boasts a large database of members but its overall design and feel can make it look a little dated compared with other dating sites targeting this age demographic. But don’t let that put you off as there are lots of features and functionalities that make this a site worth visiting. So if you are over sixty and are single, divorced, widowed or just lonely and looking for new friends or companionship, this is a dating and companionship site you want to check out. Read on to find out more.
How Do I Join The Site?
Anyone looking for an over 60s date can sign up and register on the site totally free of charge. To register, simply go to the homepage of the site and fill in the online registration form. You will find this form on the homepage of the site under the heading "Search For Singles In [Local Town]". In this online registration form you are asked to complete a number of questions. First it asks whether you are a ‘man’, ‘woman’, ‘couple (man and woman)’ or a ‘group (two or more people)’. The latter two options tell you that these are for people who are looking for friends and companionship rather than anything romantic or dating related. Then, you are asked who you are hoping to meet on the site, the age range of people you are hoping to meet, your country, county/state and finally post code/zip code. You then click ‘Find My Match’ button and get taken to a secondary ‘Complete profile’ registration page. Here you enter your date of birth, location, working email address and password of your choice Then you are asked a series of matching criteria questions and finally, you complete your profile details (headline and a short paragraph about yourself). At this point the site sends a verification email to the email address you entered. Ours went straight to the inbox and once you click the verification button, you are a member of the site - all totally free of charge!
Everyone who joins the site is granted free standard membership. As a free member you can use a lot of the site's functionality to have a look around the site and use the local search feature to see who is available near you. You can also access one of three different chat rooms to get to know other members. However if you are serious about finding a partner or new friends then you really need to upgrade to premium membership on this site as this allows you to view members actual profiles in full (to learn more about them) and to send them a message.
There are two premium membership options - Silver and Gold - with a duration of 1 or 3 months.
Silver Membership allows you to view members profiles and contact members, receive preferential listing in search results (your profile appears after gold members), access other members recorded video intros, receive partial access to blogs, groups and the magazine and get access to customer support.
The other option is Gold Membership. This is similar to Silver but you receive greater priority ranking in terms of searches (you appear first), any messages you send (are sent first), you can receive full access to member’s video intros as well as full access to the blogs, groups and magazine. In addition Gold members get access to extra large photos of members as well as access to the IDs of any third party messaging app or system of any members who send their ID to you.
Is The Site Safe And Secure?
SeniorFriendfinder offers its members 24/7 customer support and all profiles and photos that are uploaded to the site are manually vetted by the site’s moderation team. This ensures as much as possible only genuine members are allowed to join the site.
SeniorFriendFinder is a very established international dating site. It is unique in that in addition to single men and women seeking a romantic or more serious relationship, the site also allows couples and groups to join who are looking to find new friends and companions. The site's features are a bit basic compared to the competition and the whole user experience felt a bit ‘dated’ especially on a mobile. Whilst the premium membership does give you access to the full functionality on the site, making your chance of finding a senior match much greater, as a standard free member there is a lot less on offer compared to other sites we have reviewed.
