Below, we have left our original SeniorPeopleMeet review for your continued reading. This review received its last major update during the month of September 2018.

More than 300,000 singles visit this busy seniors’ dating site every month. Designed for singles aged 50 plus, SeniorPeopleMeet.com is a popular destination for friendship, travel companions, romance, and long term relationships. With thousands of active members, SeniorPeopleMeet.com it is the largest dating site that caters to the senior niche market in North America.

What sets this site apart from the competition is its simplicity. Mature singles who aren’t as tech-savvy as their younger counterparts will have no trouble navigating the site’s features and using the built-in dating tools that make searching and communicating with other members easy.

It’s free to browse and free to join, and setting up a profile is a straightforward task. To sign up, new members input a variety of basic information. The questions cover all the fundamentals:gender, hair color (which includes the option of “What hair?”), eye color, height, ethnicity, body type, a description of your looks (self-rated from “Average looking” to “Stunning looking”), marital status, children, smoking habits, country, zip code, and date of birth.

After inputting the essential info, new members choose a username and password, upload a photograph, and write three descriptive paragraphs based on the prompts “A little about me,” “About the one I’m looking for,” and “I’d just like to add…” Once the initial profile has been completed, members have the option of adding more detailed information to their profiles. Users can list their top 3 interests, answer questions about their personality characteristics, and choose from eleven prewritten questions that break the ice with other singles.

Several customization options are available to make your profile stand out. In addition to photographs, a personal audio greeting can be uploaded or phoned in, as well as a personal video greeting. Members can also select an icon and a background wallpaper to express their individuality in their profiles.

Free memberships cover most of the features available on SeniorPeopleMeet.com, but don’t include the ability to view members’ videos, see who has Fave’d or flirted with you, or communicate using the messaging system or live chat. An upgraded membership allows you to send and read mail messages, view who has flirted with you, watch video greetings, and use text, audio, and video chat. Upgraded members also have the option of paying $1 extra per month to have their profiles listed higher in search rankings. Other premium features highlight your messages and send a confirmation when another member has read an email message you sent

In keeping with the site’s mission to make online dating simple, searching for singles on SeniorPeopleMeet.com is much less complex than on other dating sites. Basic searches can be conducted by age, location, gender, and profile features. More advanced searches include options like relationship expectations, zodiac sign, children, and religion. A lefthand navigation column also allows you to search options like who’s currently online, who has viewed your profile, and who likes your photos.

For those who prefer their searching to take even less work, the My Match and I’m Interested features are available. To use My Match, specify an age range, marital status, location, general build and height range of singles you would like to meet. The site then does the heavy lifting for you, and compiles the matches it’s chosen into an email. The I’m Interested feature feels almost like a game:view a picture and a few bits of basic information (username, location, age, height), then indicate your interest by clicking either “No, next profile” or “Yes, next profile.” It’s a fast and easy way to get a feel for who’s on the site.

SeniorPeopleMeet.com has proved popular all over the Web, including here on Dating Sites Reviews, where it has be voted Top Pick for Seniors from 2009 to 2011, 2013, and 2015. Thanks to SeniorPeopleMeet.com, it has never been easier for mature singles to get into the dating game.

Positives of Senior People Meet

  • It is a quick process to create a free account (under two minutes), making it easy for you to find out if there are any singles in your area who match your preferences
  • SeniorPeopleMeet.com is designed to be easy-to-use; for example, you can phone in your audio greeting instead of having to create a recording on your computer and upload it
  • Specify who can see your profile—a great feature if you only want men or women from a certain age group to contact you

Negatives of Senior People Meet

  • The search feature is very basic. For example, there is no option to specify matches within a certain distance of a zip code
  • The magazine help section could use more information for seniors new to the online dating experience
