Silver singles – luckily you don’t need Silver hair, nor pockets lined with silver to join this site! Silver Singles offers online dating, to that ever increasing ‘mature’ (50+) age group – silver or not.
In order for the clever personality programme to send you the perfect matches, you must fill it in. The screens are simple, and clean, and it isn’t cluttered at all, as these things can sometimes be. As a Basic member, there weren’t too many options, so it is actually easy to get around. There is a link to Support, and some FAQs and a history of the company. Once you realise that you can’t actually see or email anyone without paying, you do sort of get used to reading about people instead. Because the matches do seem quite relevant, it does lead you to becoming interested in paying for a membership.
There was no evidence of a mobile App when you logon, but one IS available for IOS and Android on Itunes and Google Play Store. You are also able to register using the App.
SilverSingles has an automatic moderation system, meaning your profile and photos are up and ready to be seen in seconds. All this will be no small undertaking with 100,000 people joining each month.
A notice about Customer Support is located at the bottom of the screen. There are simple FAQs and an email address.
SilverSingles seems like a clever tool with a simple interface. The Questionnaire does seem to do a lot of behind the scenes work, to deliver to your desktop suitable matches, that actually are. You can still tweak height, age, distance etc. to fine tune your matches – or broaden them out if you aren’t getting many. The questionnaire not only seems to select candidates quite close to the mark, but also gives a good story on what their behaviour, interests and views are likely to be. All to be investigated on the first date! Definitely worth a try.
