For many seniors, there just isn't the time to date around work, so it makes sense to look for a dating site that brings a lot of older professionals together... such as VIP Singles. The site also takes great pride in helping seniors to find real, lasting relationships. It's an easy site to use, but also one packed full of features that are relevant to the senior dating market, from all manner of both simple and advanced search options to emails, flirts, a 'hotlist' and more. So, we reckon you should find a genuine relationship pretty quickly here.
Seniors don't generally want a quick fix or a casual fling. They want to be able to build a meaningful, sustained relationship and from the beginning, VIP Singles allows them to tell the world of fellow daters more about themselves, and what they are looking for in a relationship. You can expand on details relating to your lifestyle, hair color, age, ethnicity... the list goes on. There's also naturally the option to upload a photo.
If you want to get in touch with other daters via VIP Singles, you have plenty of options. You could email them, invite them to chat or put the members that you would like to contact later on a 'hotlist'. Look at the Matches page to see which members have been suggested for you, and use the search options to narrow down those matches. The Online Now and Interested in Me pages bring you even more profiles to peruse, so you shouldn't get bored searching.
You can be as nerdy as you like with your settings on VIP Singles. You could enable or disable the option to be notified of every flirt or email that you receive, and dating tips and advice can also be sent to you if you're still getting to grips with the whole online dating thing.
If you're a mature dater, it's less likely that you will have much patience for those stupidly long signup forms on other sites. It's a good job, then, that it's both free and easy to register with VIP Singles. Enter those first few details like your username, password and postcode to get in. You'll then be asked for more details, like hair colour and occupation - but don't have to reveal most of these. Of the paid plans, we especially like the six month package's long-term value, at $19.99 per month.
There isn't much personal information at all that you need to reveal to start using the site, with the option to hide your profile allowing for even greater privacy. There's all of the safety and flexibility that one would wish for from a senior dating site at VIP Singles.
Unfortunately, you can't even see what's in your inbox without paying first. The good news is that an affordable trial - $1.95 for three days - exists, alongside one month, three month and six month plans.
|OPTIONS||TOTAL COST||COST PER MONTH||SAVINGS|
|3-Month Plan||$74.97||$24.99||37.5% ($44.88)|
|6-Month Plan||$119.94||$19.99||50% ($119.76)|
As a mature dater, you might feel a little intimidated at first, at least if you haven't done online dating before. There are so many options, banners, tabs, menus and photos on one page, you might think you'll never get to grips with it. The good news is that it isn't too difficult to navigate the site. It's easy to find out who is interested in you or online now via the top banner, which also gives clear access to your inbox and matches. Search options are also here, while there's a prominent 'subscribe' button for those who wish to do so. The bottom right of the page, meanwhile, is where chat happens.
VIP Singles has clearly acknowledged that not all older daters are confident with dating sites, and especially the sometimes bewildering array of search options. All of those are here, of course, allowing you to find a date by body type, exercise habits or keyword, to name just a few possibilities. But there's also a Quick Search box that is really easy to understand, and for those that can't be bothered by that, there's always the Matches page, the matches themselves determined by shared interests and lifestyle choices - such as your favorite movie or interest in travel.
