Like most dating sites it is free to register and become a free member of the Over 50s Dating Club. To register simply go to the homepage and start the registration process. Firstly, select if you are a man or woman, then select what you are looking for from the site (tip: you can select more than one option here!). You then describe yourself using a series of drop down options including, height, weight, hair colour, hair length, eye colour and physique. It then asks you which city/region you wish to meet people from. Then your date of birth and relationship status and finally your email address and a username of your choice. To activate your membership the site sends you an email and you simply click the green ‘Confirm your registration now’ button and you are now a member. To complete the registration process the site asks you several more quick preferences concerning smoking, alcohol and body jewellery (which can be deal breakers for some people - so this all helps with the accuracy of the matches you will receive!). Then add a short description for your profile as well as a photo (make sure you add one of you looking your best, as photos ensure you receive more responses).
As a free member you can receive messages from other members as well as email notifications from the site when you have a new message or someone marks you as their favourite. You can also view at the daily matches you receive in your inbox. I received 7 matches automatically when I registered along with a notification that my matches are only visible for the next 24 hours. Upon clicking on one of the matches you notice that the photo and profile details are blurred out for free members so you can’t really see that much nor can you add that member as a ‘favourite’.
To get the most out of this site you have to upgrade to VIP membership. As a VIP member you will then be able to view profiles full uncensored, read and send unlimited messages, add members you like to your ‘favourites’ list, see who has looked at your profile (and not have your matches deleted after 24 hours). The cost of VIP membership packages are priced at a premium compared versus other sites we have reviewed. VIP membership options range between 1,3 and 6 months. The most popular option the site states is their 3 month package.
If you are seeking a no frills and easy to use dating site for the over 50s this might be it. The features and functionalities for free members are quite restrictive so you will need to upgrade to VIP membership to get the most out of the site.
