Forty Plus Singles Review

Overview

Forty Plus Singles is a dating website that caters specifically to singles over the age of 40. It is a good way for mature singles to connect with one another. Unlike general dating websites, Forty Plus Singles limits its customer base to a certain age group. For those of us who are looking to date in the 40+ pool, this website is truly a wonderful tool. Whether you are divorced, separated, widowed, or new to the dating scene, Forty Plus Single will help you find someone who strikes your fancy.

Features

Forty Plus Singles is the 40+ division of its partner website Mate1.com. You are automatically redirected to Mate1 when you search for mature singles. One unique feature is how detailed you can make your profile. It includes "Favorites" and "Least Favorites" which are fun to fill out and read.

Searching for matches is easy. You can use the basic or advanced search. The site does an excellent job of bringing you match candidates you might not have found on your own. Simply by browsing the site, you will see people who fulfill your search criteria. You can also search specifically for people who are online at the same time as you. There's also an "Interested in Me" feature, which tells you who has noticed you.

Once you've found a possible match, you can send a message using the in-site email system or instant messaging (IM). IM allows you to chat with the other person in real time. If you're not ready for a conversation, you can still make the first move by sending an online "Flirt". You can save people to your Hotlist to find them easily again. Or, you can blacklist them forever.

Sign Up

To use Forty Plus Singles, you will complete an application with Mate1, which includes filling in contact and financial information as well as answering a profile questionnaire. The questionnaire asks for details about occupation, income, physical appearance, ethnic and religious background, interests, and romantic preferences. You can choose not to answer the profile questions, but keep in mind that a more detailed profile will generate more interest!

Forty Plus Singles is for serious singles only. The application and verification process is meant to keep out fake accounts, spammers, sex solicitors, and felons currently serving time.

Forty Plus Singles and Mate1 are concerned about their users' privacy and compliant with TRUSTe privacy standards.

Ease of Use

Once you create an account on Forty Plus Singles, you can use that username and password to log in to Mate1.com. The direct Forty Plus Singles login is only available through a Facebook account. The Mate1 site is laid out like a straightforward dating site, with profile and messaging options easily accessible on the menu bar and match suggestions on the side.

The Search

The Forty Plus Singles basic search is easy but the search criteria are rather unspecific. It's possible, however, to narrow your search on Mate1's advanced search, where you can specify other criteria including physical appearance, income, and romantic preferences. You can look specifically for people nearby or currently online. The site will also generate possible matches based on your preferences and display them to you on the home page.

Members should note that a detailed and interesting profile will attract the most viewers. One of the best ways to boost interest is to add a photo and exhibit a positive attitude.
