Senior People Meet, it’s true, but sometimes it can be hard to find someone special who you’d like to get to know a bit better. Whether you’re looking for love or just friendship, SeniorPeopleMeet.com offers a safe and friendly space to make new acquaintances online, with the view of perhaps meeting in person in the future.
We do feel we should start with a basic but relevant flaw of this site in comparison to its peers, namely the ability to find other members. We think that the search options aren’t quite up to par at times,as they make it a little more tricky to locate people based on precise details such as their religious belief or hobbies. That said, you can still perform a pretty useful search but it somehow feels underdeveloped and a bit fiddlier than is necessary. Also, results are also not always presented in the best way possible and this can become a pain to search through after a while.
As well as searching for a profile you might also want to check the instant matches, which become more accurate as you provide the website with more personal data. This system means you’ll likely take a look at profiles you might otherwise have bypassed. We were happy to find that a good number of the members have uploaded clear, well taken photos, giving you a good idea of how they look in the flesh. Many members have also taken the time to write a little about themselves and have updated their information so that you learn all about them before chatting. You can also create a list of your favorite members so that you can easily locate them in the future and get chatting whenever you log on.
SeniorPeopleMeet is part of the PeopleMedia group, which is owned by Match.com, a huge community of people who are looking for dates around the world. Subsequently you can expect to find a well organized website in SeniorPeopleMeet.com, as well as relevant and useful features for helping you to meet the ideal date. Upgraded members gain several benefits: you can send and receive messages from members, and find out some sneaky information such as when your messages have been read or who has added you to their list of favorite members. This can be good to know, particularly if someone is shy but you can make the first move to break the ice.
Other features include the ability for members to upload videos which you can watch, and you can talk to them using a live chat feature. If we were to ask for improvements then we’d like to see the search engine improved, as well as how results were listed, but they could also work on offering a few more communication tools to help you get talking to people. Finally, there’s little in the way of community features such as forums, articles and message boards. More of these features would help people to get chatting without the same pressure as a 1 on 1 discussion.
Although this site isn’t perhaps as impressive as some of its peers, it’s still got the framework there, and there ought to be enough members to help you find someone who suits your lifestyle and preferences. Improvements can be made but, if you discover someone you like the look of, then we think the free membership ought to give you enough of an idea as to how the site functions before you part with any cash.
