SilverSingles caters to over 50s who are serious about finding lasting love and companionship. The site is open to singles of all backgrounds, races, and religions, who are young at heart and in search of a lifelong partner. The matching process is comprehensive and uses analytical science to drive its targeted questions towards finding the most compatible matches. At sign-up, users proceed through a questionnaire spanning over 100 personality based questions. Once this is complete, users can sit back and watch as the site auto-generates profile and filter settings and starts to offer focused, data-driven matches within minutes of signing up.

Paid users receives a unique and detailed ‘personality profile,' which includes easy-to-use color-coded charts. Analysis is broken down into 5 different areas: Openness, Extroversion, Agreeableness, Consciousness, and Neuroticism. This allows the site’s algorithms to work out the best possible matches between profiles.
Members also receive between 7 and 10 highly compatible matches each day, with an additional option of around 20 less compatible profiles to browse through a swiping system. Once a profile has been swiped past, it is then removed from the user’s potential match base and will not reappear.
Similarities between members’ profiles are highlighted with a heart to make it easy for users to find shared interests and values. It also makes the detailed profiles easier to skim, without having to trawl through the small print of each potential match. A unique feature of SilverSingles is members being able to ‘like’ specific sections of other users’ profiles, rather than just posting a general ‘like’ for the whole page.
SilverSingles wants to get its members communicating, and encourages users to send each other messages when they are interested in a potential match. All communication is recorded in the user’s inbox, whether it’s simply sending a smile or composing a full written message.
SilverSingles has automatic filters in place that prevent messages from being sent if they contain offensive or harmful content. All the data entered by users during registration or login is SSL-encrypted (Secure Socket Layer), which is the most reputable and reliable encryption technology available. None of the information supplied by members is accessible for viewing by a third party.
Users can’t copy or download any of the pictures posted on SilverSingles, and every profile entry or photo is checked by the site’s security team before being posted online. Users of the dating site are also able to report abuse or delete matches to prevent them from showing up. Members are advised to read through the site’s own guidelines for safe internet dating.
SilverSingles recommends that users become paid members in order to make the most of the site. As with most dating sites, the longer you commit to, the lower the cost per month.
The pricing options are as follows:
|Plan duration||1 month||3 month||6 month||12 month|
Should problems arise, SilverSingles has a ‘Help’ page for customer support. Users can search the site’s most frequently asked questions, or post their question online through the website’s contact form. This allows members to send questions or problems straight to the site’s customer care team, with problems categorized by topic to allow for a more efficient response. Alternatively, an address and fax number are both provided should members wish to contact SilverSingles by other methods.
SilverSingles is there for responsible, fun-loving singles over 50 who are genuine about looking for lasting companionship and love. SilverSingles considers each member's unique personality seriously and makes sure its users are active in their search for long-term relationships. If you're over 50 and on the lookout for a dating site that asks all the right questions, this is what you’ve been waiting for.
