Based in the UK, but with a strong Aussie presence, MatureDating has over 250,000 members, all senior singles looking to find love and friendship online. With broad search capabilities and fun extras such as chatrooms, online polls and fun messaging tools, it’s a great choice for the more mature singles who are just as tech savvy as the younger generation and want to make some new online friends.
If you want to chat late into the night, MatureDating makes it possible. Eager to find someone close by? MatureDating will match you with local matches daily. And, you don’t have to worry about immature teenagers on the site—maturedating.com was designed with the responsible, single adult in mind.
An enjoyable feature of MatureDating is the chat. You aren’t limited to a single chat box or room, but you have the ability to enjoy several different chatrooms with various topics. Choose from local chatrooms in your area, or enjoy international chatrooms. You also have access to chatrooms genres including general chat, flirting, gay and lesbian, and fetishes. Chat rooms are available 24/7, and maintain an active status to let you know when someone is available for chatting.
Use the Activity tab to keep track of anyone you have interacted with on the site, including those who are interested in you. Send winks to flirt, see who has viewed your profile, and browse full size photos too. You can send flirtcasts and ice breakers if you aren’t sure how to make the first move.
There is no matchmaking feature available, but the search is comprehensive.
Joining MatureDating is simple and quick. Just fill out your gender, date of birth, email address, location, and choose a password. Go straight to your email inbox to verify your account. After that, you’re in! You can choose to complete your profile and upload a photo, or you can skip it and begin browsing all the single men and women.
We always recommend building your profile ASAP. The better informed other users are about you, the more likely they will get in touch. It can also act as a deterrent to users who want different things than you do if you have a profile which explains what you’re looking for.
We love the easy to scan profile percentage bar which shows you on the left how much of your profile is complete and what still needs to be done, making it easy to dip in and out without completing the profile in one sitting.
MatureDating takes your safety seriously and they want you to enjoy your dating experience. At the bottom of the page is a link to MatureDating’s dedicated Safe Dating page. They discuss the best tips for members to use while dating online. In addition, they give you ideas for in-person dating when you are ready to meet offline. As well as this, your credit card and financial info is secured by RapidSSL, to keep any users safe from phishing schemes or malicious intent.
Not ready for a full membership commitment? Try MatureDating for only $1.09 and enjoy one full day of complete access to everything the site has to offer. When you’re ready to upgrade, you have three options to select from.
|Options||Total Cost||Cost Per Day|
MatureDating is easy to use once you’ve had a bit of practice. Your menu bar lies at the top of your dashboard. You can access messages, chats, views, friends, and more from this menu. To the far right is your profile settings, account options, and membership plan information.
While the site is simple to use, it is not without fault. A few animated ads appear at random on the search results of the site. These ads can be distracting as you browse through the profiles. However, you can eliminate the ads when you pay for a full membership. Notifications come up at the bottom of the screen which is helpful. If you find this distracting you can disable these at any time by pressing the corner x button.
There is a lot of functionality on the website, including vast profile tools, a busy search, and extra features like polls and a newsfeed. For the less tech savvy user, it is well worth using the great tutorial feature to get acquainted with the site before you dive in.
When you open your dashboard you are immediately shown the latest matches based on your location and selected interests in your profile. But, to begin a simple search, just use the quick search menu on the home page. You can search for singles by age, location, online status, and gender. If you’re looking for more search parameters, click the advanced search just next to the “Find” button.
Clicking on this link will give you access to more search options such as piercings, tattoos, income, education, and more. Use only three to four additional search parameters with each search. Too many can inhibit your results and leave you with little to select.
A great extra feature we haven’t seen much in the Aussie online dating scene is the Looking for section of the search tool. Here you can choose to search by users who are looking for a relationship, friendship, email or chat, strictly fun and more.
There is a Quick Search tool available from the left hand side of the website too.
With an emphasis on pairing up more mature singles, MatureDating offers a broad features online dating experience for the young at heart, looking to find friendship and love online.
