Bumble – Dating, Make New Friends & Networking

Who’s online: 

EliteSingles’ sibling site, SilverSingles, is geared towards people who are 50 and older and looking to jump into the dating pool or jump back into the dating pool after a hiatus.

The site boasts “mature, older, and senior singles” who are mainly looking for long-lasting connections instead of quick flings. With over 20% of users older than 50, dating doesn’t have to mean fishing for people your age on sites like eHarmony and Match.

How it works:

After answering some basic questions about yourself and your desired partner, you’ll be able to rank how important qualities like age and education level are to a potential match.

Then, you’ll be able to take SilverSingles’ in-depth personality questionnaire, which uses the same five-factor model that EliteSingles uses to explore your personality and relationship desires, from how you handle conflict to what you’re looking for in a partner.

How it helps introverts:

Since there’s no swiping involved, you won’t come across tons of matches every day with the pressure to message each person you see. SilverSingles does the hard work for you, and uses its thorough compatibility model to send you between three to five ideal matches every day.

Each profile is rich with information, too, so you can find out a lot about the person you matched with before you decide to chat with them.

What it’ll cost you:

While the site is free to sign up and take the questionnaire, you’ll have to fork over some cash to actually get matches and chat with other users.

The plans are broken down into three types: Premium Light, Premium Classic, and Premium Comfort. The Premium Light plan gives you three months of membership, intelligent matchmaking, and unlimited communication for $17.95 per month.

Premium Classic adds on unlimited profile views for other users, the ability to see every user who visits your profile, and read receipts on messages for $9.95 per month for six months. Premium Comfort will give you all the features of Premium Classic but for $8.95 per month for a 12-month commitment.
