Never too late to date. We are convinced dating is timeless, and that age should not stop you from trying to find an excellent companion to share your life with. After all, it’s the heart of your self-confidence: who gets tired of feeling handsome and loved? You can still date, and you can even mate.
Many older adults we have heard about still rely on dating agencies. They aren’t always the right choice, and they are usually more expensive and hard to use—more than Internet dating websites.
That’s why more and more mature women and men use the Internet for mating’s sake. One of them is Date My Age.
In this review, we will try to give you a broad overlook of what you can have from this website. Does it work, or is it a scam? Is it safe? How do its features work? Do I have to pay? We will try to answer these and all the questions you may ask yourself. Just read on before subscribing!
Seeing the website before subscribing usually helps reviewers understand whether a website contains real or fake users. We must say that the first time we clicked on the website after searching it on our computer.
We used a male profile, clicked, and glancer over the website. Then we tried logging in. Here, we tried first selecting a much different location. After the sign-up process, we looked back to the users’ profiles next to us: most of them were just the same.
This test we made allows us to say that the localization function is not working very well on Date My Age, so you can be suggested to chat with people that you thought were next to you.
And in the end, you will find out they were living in Russia or Centre Africa, or who knows where.
The use of the website looks very easy. On Date My Age, you can see senior people’s profiles who claim they live next to you. You can also send chat messages and email messages to them, and interact in different ways, which we can discuss later on.
In exchange, the website says they need your credit card information. They don’t ask this during the sign-up process, so you can take a look at the website and start salivating.
Wonderful actresses will contact you if you are a male looking for a female, and they will send your standard messages. They show you to be ready to be your life companion or charm you in any possible way.
Even if you have signed in with a completely blank profile, that’s why we are telling you: we have made a full review trying to explain how this website works. But you can use many other more transparent ones.
It’s not bad to pay for a membership, but it’s not an excellent welcoming message to be lumped by notifications, pop-ups, and add-ons.
You can judge this by yourself: you can sign-in using your name, location, age, and other personal information. They will also ask you your email address, but you can access the website and pay without verifying your email address.
This happens even though the website claims every single profile is verified.
So, let’s go on with this honest review, and let’s take a look at the website.
Well, as we reviewers signed up as men looking for women, we received 27 notifications of messages within the first 5 minutes we were online. All of them seemed to be unaware or not caring about our blank profile.
We then tried signing in with a woman looking for men’s profile. We haven’t received a single message.
This could mean two things: either the men are generally more interested in profile pictures. Or, the women profiles on Date My Age are chatbots. If you haven’t heard about chatbots before: they are robots sending out automated messages. We can’t tell what for. Usually, they are here to make your presence on the website a good one.
Not everyone is looking for dating. Someone just likes a pen pal. So, we can’t understand why you need to pay for typing messages to a robot.
There are no homosexual options. You can be a man looking for a woman or vice versa. Still, with our female profile, we kept receiving messages from hot female profiles. Two birds killed with one stone!
The features are nice, though. The one we liked the most is the “mingle” function. You can basically type a message, and the website automatically sends it out to several users simultaneously.
Here’s where those previous messages were coming from! If you “mingle,” you don’t know who is going to receive your message. Then, you can chat, send emails, live chat using your webcam.
You can update your profile as many times as you want, and see other people’s profiles, and their photos, as well. Wait, remind that we are listing all the features, but go to the “Membership” paragraph to know which ones you can afford with a free membership.
Later in our research, we found out that you can browse profiles by age and sex. Here there’s a useful function: you can choose whether you are a “man looking for a woman” or a “woman looking for a man.” Again, this website allows you to do almost everything, even changing your sex on the way.
Finally, you can send presents to other users, like small gifts, which you can use as small talks or welcoming messages.
There’s one thing vital about websites: you need to understand at a glance how they work. When you are looking for a button or a function, you should not look for it for more than 1 minute.
If you get immediately how it works, they say a website is “usable.” We understand that every user has its idea of what’s usable and what is not. Still, there’s no doubt that Date My Age is quite functional.
At least, it is if you pay for your membership. If you don’t, your messages will be stuck for a very long time in the mailbox. Also, a very annoying pop-up will appear on your screen, saying that you can upgrade for your membership.
Everything is white and grey, with black writings: everything but the orange and blue logo at the top left of the main page.
This is quite a relaxing view, after all. Picture the scene as we see it: the waiting icon, telling you that your messages are waiting to be sent away. This lies at the center of the page. Then, on the left, the other users’ profiles. On the right, the chatbox, showing you notifications all the time. These women’s profiles will keep on sending notifications for many hours, that’s for sure.
But you can block users, if you want to, by going to the “settings” in the main taskbar, at the top of the page.
This main bar will help you surf the website. It contains the “search” tab, then the mailbox, the orange alert “upgrade account,” if you still haven’t done yet. And finally, three small horizontal lines one above the other: they give you access to our profile and the settings.
There’s, unfortunately, no mobile app available at the moment.
If you are experiencing any issue with the website, or if something about how it’s working is not clear, you can rely on the Customer Service. Just go on the top menu bar, click on the three horizontal lines, and select “Help and Support.”
Then you can express your doubts and requests. We tried to use the service, but we could not, as it kept showing us a blank page.
The whole website is quite slow, so be sure that your Internet connection is good before even trying to sign-up to Date My Age. We can’t say what is the average response time, then.
Given all these premises, we suggest you not to use your personal email for this sign-up. If you have a “fun mail,” a mail created only for this kind of purpose, you can use that.
Creating an email is as simple as a Date My Age registration, so the whole process won’t take long.
As we said before, you will not be asked to give the website your credit card details at least, unless you want to upgrade your membership.
Now let’s see how to sign up.
The sign-up process is far more straightforward than you could expect. First of all, as we said in the first paragraphs: you can take a look at the website and understand how it works just by typing “date my age” into your browser.
A form will appear in front of you, asking you to tell your age and the average age rank you are looking for. Remember, you can change it whenever you feel tired of it.
In this website version, you can see everything but the profile in the main taskbar. Although this might be a right solution if you would like to take a look, we suggest you sign in with a free profile.
Here’s how to do it: scroll the page down until the very end. At the bottom, you will see an orange button, “create an account.” Go for it and fill in the form with all the required information. They won’t ask you your credit card details; we say that again, to be sure you are not missing this detail.
Then you are free to change your profile.
There is an effortless way to verify your profile. Although there’s no need to do it, you can surf the website without further steps. And more importantly, you can purchase a membership without having verified your email.
But in case you want all the steps to be done correctly, go to your mailbox and look for Date My Age email. There’s a link inside, click on it, and your account will be automatically verified.
There are two main ways of looking for other people’s profiles. You can check on the left part of your homepage and see a list of all the profiles here on Date My Age. At least those who correspond to your likes. Then there is another way: you can use the main taskbar and brose them directly, as said before.
You will find the double-edged search we were talking about before: you can look either for men or for women. For a free member, the only discrimination is age rank.
Chatting looks very easy if you are a paying member. Just go to the right of the page, where you can see the chat balloon. Select a user who you are already chatting to, and type the message.
You can also select a profile and send a message to the person holding it, just by clicking the “message” button. Also, there’s the “mingle” function, which you can use by going to the main taskbar. This is a mass message that you will send to many users at the same time.
You sign-up as a free user, and you decide if you like the place if you are willing to pay for “credits.” The credits are like coins, basically the website tolls. You buy them for the website, and then you spend them on different website functions. For example, sending out a chat message will cost you a credit.
Let’s list the different main options you will have access to.
With a free account, you can see the profiles, search for them with a basic search, and read incoming emails and messages.
The credits will allow you to use the chat options fully: you will send as many messages as you like to sed gifs to the people you think deserve them. Every gift has, of course, its price in connects.
It’s up to you: if you want to move in any direction in Date My Age, you will need to have credit right inside your pocket. That’s for sure.
There is no fixed price for credits. Here are the three packages available at the moment.
19,99$ will buy you 150 credits for a month, and 149,99$ is for 600 credits per month. 299,99$ will buy you 1500 credits, also for a month.
If you are not comfortable staying on the website, you can unsubscribe at any time. Just go to the settings in the primary taskbar at the top of the page. Click on “Settings,” and then look for the unsubscribe button.
Your profile will be frozen, and you can go back whenever you like. You can also ask the Customer Support to cancel it once for all, but that sounds like a drastic measure.
As long as you don’t share your personal information and credit card information with other users, it is safe. Like in real life, you can’t be too expansive to strangers. Be careful not to click on links that will redirect you to other web pages, as well.
There are plenty of similar websites online for mature people looking for a mate: Dating for Seniors, Senior People Meet, Our Time, Senior Match, Silver Singles, Dating for Senior, My Senior Dating, Senior Next. One last: Senior Dating, which is perfect but only works if you live within the UK.
As you may have noticed, there are a lot of fatal flaws in Date My Age. It has some good points, like understandable graphics. Still, it’s not enough to understand how an engine works, if it later will explode in a million pieces under our back.
Our suggestion, after every review, is always: try it for yourself. You will understand better than anyone if you feel good giving your money for a service. We say “giving your money,” as there is almost no feature available for a free user. Now it’s time for you to decide. We wish you a happy mating!
