New York (PRWEB) June 08, 2013
Unlike other dating sites for seniors, Over50mate.com allows members to browse the site to find potential matches and show interests by sending ice-breaking winks before they upgrade to premium membership. It is free to post a dating profile on Over50mate.com and view other member’s profiles and photos as well as reply to emails. This makes Over50mate.com popular between retired senior singles that don’t have regular income because many senior dating sites charge membership fee for searching local matches and showing interests. The site also has features that most senior dating sites have, such as blog, forum, fashion show photos, e-greeting cards, dating tips and advices, and live dating counselor, etc.
How does the site work? Members sign up with their email address, upload their photos, set criteria about their match, then search local matches by giving age and zip code, and other keywords, such as, doctor, travel, golfing, fit, to find local members who match their criteria. Once a potential match is found, members can send free winks to show interests. If someone is interested and sends an email, it is free to reply to the email. Only to initiate sending emails requires gold membership, which is $29.95 per month, $59.95 for 3 months, and $95.95 for 6 months, while some senior dating sites charge much higher for sending emails.
The site is managed by Successful Match, a company powering niche dating sites since 2001. Therefore, the site has very powerful and stable matching technology that matches members according to the criteria members set. For example, if a single woman only wants to meet straight men who are between the age of 50 to 60 and who live in the New York, the site won’t recommend gay members or members beyond the age of 50 to 60 or men who don’t live in the New York to this woman. Once a member’s profile is viewed, the member will receive a notice from the site in the member’s personal email address. Comments by other members and emails will also be forwarded to members’ personal email address automatically. It saves members’ time to log in the site to check profile views, winks, and emails.
According to Alexa.com, 80% of members on Over50mate.com come from the US, and %60 of its members are women over 50. American senior citizens like this site for another reason, that is, Over50mate.com censors all profiles manually. Members under the age of 30 are not allowed. They also don’t allow members from countries including Nigeria, Philippines, Thailand, and some other developing countries, since most of romance scammers are from these countries.
