Senior Dating Connection
Review

Senior dating connection has been built from the ground up with the senior dater in mind. It really excels at being incredibly user friendly. They understand that their clientele aren’t always as tech savvy as the younger generations, since they have not grown up being permanently connected to a computer screen. The site prides itself on this being one of the safest dating site out there. They go to great lengths to protect their users from scam that younger dater would see right through. Wonderfully easy to use, very safe and a great community feel.

The Good

The site is very well laid out and easy to use, they have clearly put a lot of effort into making a great interface. It’s also worth mentioning that the community is incredible friendly and helpful. The site is a pleasure to use and then they monitored it very well. Also on the off chance that you do have trouble the support staff are very helpful and understanding.

The Bad

Since the site is very security conscious it is not uncommon for accounts to be flagged for a manual check. This mean you would have to verify that you are real person. Most people will never encounter this and it’s really just a requirement to make the site as safe as possible.

Network Reach

A lot of effort has been put into building an active community. It can legitimately boost tens of thousands of active users.

Creating your profile

The profile set up process is in a wizard format which guides you through in simple step by step process, at some point even over explaining to make sure that you completely understand what is going on. In total it takes about 5 minutes and is very simple. You will need to include details such as hobbies, lifestyle where you live, nothing too personal. It also allows multiple photos to be uploaded which really help to make the profiles stand out.

Finding your match

The search starts off with a very straight forward default setting; using the algorithm to try and find who they believe will be your best matches. This is usually enough for most people, however they do offer a more in-depth search if you are looking for something more specific. They also have the encounters functionality where you can use select ‘yes / no’ by just looking at photos of people which is proven to be an excellent ice breaker.

Connecting with members

Connecting with people is made very easy, you can either use low key methods like winks or you can send a full message. They have been working on some icebreaker functionality which helps people start conversations, this works very well because some people who use this site often need a bit of helping hand. 
They also have a brilliant favoriting functionality which the site learns from to improve the matching algorithm. Very clever and super easy to use.

Mobile Features

The site looks great on a computer or tablet. However on a mobile phone it starts to get a little fiddly. This would be fine for a younger dater but for a mature dater I think it might prove a little hard to use, which is a pity since the site has really excelled in functionality in every other regard. We have talked to them and they are in the process of producing an app that should improve thing greatly.

The Trust Factor

ly did put trust at the forefront when developing the site. They clearly value and want to protect the community as much as possible. Because of this some account may require phone confirmation, however this is rare.

Payment & Support

The free account is a great way to start but in order to get the best out of this site you really need to get a paid membership. After the love and care that has gone into building this community it is understandable if you want the protection and the personal touch you need to be prepare to part with a small subscription fee. As with the rest of the site the payment is very safe they are completely secure and accept all major credit cards.
