If you’re not only an older dater, but also carrying a couple of extra pounds, the actual dating experience has traditionally been a fairly intimidating one. The good news is that in recent years, plenty of sites have sprung up specifically promising to find a match for the big, beautiful dater – and there are few quite as promising as BBPeopleMeet. It offers all of the great features that you’d expect of a good dating site, from messages and flirts to likes and matches, but also with plenty of likeminded big, beautiful daters.
In one sense, this is one site that’s really about getting the basics right. You can favorite people, flirt with them and of course, message them, and contact of this kind will show up in your Inbox. Click ‘Today’s Matches’ near the top of the page, and you’ll be led to a succession of dating profiles for you to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to – perfect if you don’t really do the dating site thing, and are a bit shy and intimidated about it all. Click the Connect tab, meanwhile, and you can see the connections that you’ve gathered thus far.
There’s also a Chat function, easily missed at the bottom right of the page, where you’ll see those who have favorited you if they are actually online. There are also a fair few search options – more on those later – and a lot of opportunities in your profile to tell the world more about yourself and what you are looking for. There’s even a questionnaire that you can complete here, should you be stumped for what to write in the main sections of your profile. What’s your favorite movie, for example, or what’s your hidden and unique talent? This is the place to reveal all.
You aren’t asked for your real name, and nor do you even need to upload a photo before you begin browsing profiles, so there’s a good level of in-built protection. If you do see any profile that concerns you for any reason, there’s an option to report it and bring it to the attention of the BBPeopleMeet team.
The sign up process – which, by the way, is free – involves entering such details as your gender and which gender you are looking for, your desired age bracket and your zip code. You’ll then be able to see some dating profiles, although you’ll be able to see many more as soon as you disclose a bit more info, including your desired username, email address and password, as well as your exact birthday. You’ll then be asked to reveal a few more details about yourself – such as your height, ethnicity and how many children you have – to ensure a better-tailored dating experience.
There isn’t a huge amount that you can do without paying – you can’t see the members that have Fave’d or favorited you, for example. Inevitably, then, you’ll find yourself straying towards the paid options, and the six month package saves so much money that we’d find it harder to recommend the shorter one – unless you really are confident that you’ll find someone quickly!
|OPTIONS||TOTAL COST||COST PER MONTH||SAVINGS|
|6-Month Membership||$35.94||$5.99||60% ($54)|
|6-Month Membership with Profile Highlight||$41.94||$6.99||53.4% ($48)|
Despite not being a seniors-only site, BBPeopleMeet.com seems to have been designed for the needs of plus 40 daters. Even if you aren’t very familiar with dating sites at all, the various prominent tabs and menu options make it an easy site to navigate and get to grips with. By clicking your username at the top right hand side of the page, you can easily edit not just your profile, but also your photos and account settings. Those settings include private info, location info, preferences and more.
Before you do any searching yourself, be sure to upload a photo, so that you aren’t invisible to others! Once you’ve done that, you’ll be ready to take advantage of a vast range of both basic and advanced search options. You could, of course, just look at your matches for today, or the people that are online now… or you could perform a username search. Alternatively, you could search by age bracket, area or on the basis of a user having a photo on their profile. Or plunge even deeper, searching by ethnicity, status or religion… it’s all possible with BBPeopleMeet.com.
So, what are you waiting for? With such fantastic dating tools, exciting features and diverse members, there’s no reason not to!
