Senior Dating Network is a completely private, secure and confidential senior dating service in NZ aimed at single senior men and women. To use the site there is no minimum age, however most singles are over 40 or 50. Membership is relatively small compared to other sites.
How does it work?
It is completely free to join Senior Dating Network, however the site only has limited functionality for non paying members. When you sign up, you are asked to upload a photo of yourself and create your own personal profile page. Details such as interests, age, postcode, whether you have children, and whether you smoke are requested, and these are used to find matches.
Once you have signed up, you can browse profiles, and send messages or winks to profiles that you fancy. Every time you log in to Senior Dating Network you can see who has been looking at your profile and access your own Senior Dating Network inbox, which contains all your sent and received winks and personal messages.
There are additional features for full members which allow you to reveal more of your personality, including video profiles and your dating diary. These features encourage greater contact from other members as they get to know more about you. As a full member you also have the ability to see who is online and message any other singles you find attractive.
Are there any disadvantages?
Because Senior Dating Network is a smaller site, there are less features and members than larger sites. This may mean that it is harder for you to find that special someone. Another downside is that while the site is advertised as being free, it is not actually.
You can access very basic functionality with a free membership, but to message other people you need to pay for a premium membership. Furtheremore, the site is owned by a company that is located in the UK, and this means that you have limited rights if something does go wrong.
What are the advantages?
While you do have to pay for premium membership, this is cheap in comparison to other dating sites. There is also a higher concentration of older people on the site, so if this is what your looking for, you are in luck.
Another thing that most sites lack is an easy way to cancel your subscription once you no longer want to be on the site. With Senior Dating Network, you just need to simply log in to your account, select the ‘Account’ link at the top right of your home screen, click ‘Membership’, then click ‘Delete My Account’.
Senior Dating Network also takes privacy seriously, by not displaying any personal details on your profile. Your email address, home address and financial details are all locked away, only visible to you within your account settings. The only information other members can see about you is your name, whatever you write in your profile, and your photo.
