Senior Friend Finder

Senior FriendFinder as the name suggests specialises in introducing senior men and women over 50 who are looking for new friends, companionship and even long term relationships. The site was one of the very first dating sites set up for the senior market and claims to have a large database of members - both in the UK as well as abroad. However its overall design and feel now looks a little dated compared with some of the other dating sites and apps now available to over 50 singles. That said, SeniorFriendfinder has lots of features and functionalities for its site members so it is worth taking a look. So whether you are single, divorced, widowed or just lonely and looking for new friends or companionship, this is an over 50s dating and friendship site you want to check out. Senior Friend Finder also allows group memberships so you can join with your friends if you so wish (which is a unique feature compared to all other sites we have reviewed). Read on to find out how to sign up and more.

How To Sign Up

Anyone looking for an over 50s date or simply wanting to find new friends of a similar age can join the site for free. To sign up go to the main homepage of the site (use the handy links on this page) and fill in the online registration form. You will find this form on the homepage under the heading "Search For Singles In [Local Town]". In this online registration form you are asked to complete a number of questions. First it asks whether you are a ‘man’, ‘woman’, ‘couple (man and woman)’ or a ‘group (two or more people)’. The final two selections are aimed at people who are looking to make new friends rather than seeking romantic dates. You are then asked who you hope to meet on the site, their age range, your country, county and finally postcode. Once you have filled all this in, you then click on the ‘Find My Match’ button. This takes you to the  secondary ‘Complete profile’ registration page. Here you enter your date of birth, location, working email address and password of your choice The site then asks you some matching criteria questions and finally, you add in your profile details (headline and a few words about yourself and what you are looking for on the site).  Upon submitting this information, you are sent a verification email to the email address you entered. Simply open the email and click on the verification button and that's it, you are now a member of Senior Friend Finder! 

Membership Options

Anyone who signs up to the site receives standard membership for free. As a free member you get access to some of the site's functionality. This enables you to explore the site and use the local search feature to see other members that match your search criteria.  However compared to many other sites we have reviewed, the options granted as a free member are quite limited. Therefore if you are serious about finding a partner or new friends then you need to upgrade to premium membership. As a premium member you can read other members profiles in full and see their photos and send and read messages amongst other things. There are two choices for premium membership - Silver or Gold - with the option of 1 or 3 months membership.

As a Silver Member you can view other members profiles and send and receive messages, receive preferential listing in search results (your profile appears after gold members), access other members recorded video intros, receive partial access to blogs, groups and the magazine and get access to customer support. 

The other premium membership is Gold. As a Gold member you receive greater priority ranking in terms of searches (Gold members appear first in the search results). Likewise your messages are sent first (thus increasing your chance of messages being seen). You also receive unrestricted access to member’s video intros as well as the blogs, groups and magazine. Finally, Gold members get access to extra large photos of members - which is a nice touch. 


SeniorFriendFinder is a long established international dating site. What makes this site unique is that the site allows couples and groups to join who are looking to make new friends in addition to it being a dating (and friendfinder) service for singles. Overall the features you can access as a free member are somewhat limited compared to other sites and to get the most out of the site you will need to upgrade to either Silver or Gold membership. That said, if you are a couple or a group looking to make new friends and acquaintances then this is what this site specialises in and is worth considering compared to other sites.
