California - A recent study revealed that the odds of finding love on any given day is 1 in 562 if left to chance: a stat that can be particularly disheartening to those over age 45. The good news is the same study also found that those numbers improve by as much as 17 percent as a result of online dating.
And SeniorMatch – through its mobile app and online platform - is one of the reasons why. In fact, the dating site, which caters exclusively to those 46 and older, this year celebrates its 16th anniversary. As part of the celebration, SeniorMatch is pulling out all the stops by offering the chance to win a trip for two to Hawaii with details available on its website.
The founders say the anniversary is a perfect metaphor for their business as it is all about longevity and standing the test of time. The dating site has become so familiar among older men and women that it was even featured in the movie, Daddy’s Home 2, with a cast that included Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.
“There were no online options solely for older men and women looking for love when we first launched SeniorMatch.com in 2003 - and frankly, critics said we would fail. But here we are all these years later. We’re very proud that our app has stood the test of time; and it feels great to know we’ve brought so many couples together who are enjoying fulfilling relationships in their next chapters in life,” explained James Chen, SeniorMatch CEO.
While some other dating sites have age category options for singles over 50, SeniorMatch prides itself on its age group exclusivity and its manual application review process which has been responsible for eliminating, on average, 38.5 percent of fraudulent sign-up attempts daily. The founders say these special processes reassure clients who may be concerned about safety, confidentiality and privacy.
“We offer our clients a secure, supportive and comfortable place to find the kind of relationships they are looking for: whether its romance, companionship, or a travel or activity partner,” he added. “Seniors can be especially vulnerable to individuals who prey on that population but we put up all the safeguards to prevent that from happening on SeniorMatch.”
The site also has a popular community blog that offers success stories, dating tips and other dating advice, book and movie recommendations and more. The SeniorMatch app has a 4.7 out of 5 Google rating, which is the highest ranking among like apps. Memberships cost $29.95-$33 and include upgrade and improve your chances by 500%; Enjoy all privileges on all platforms (PC, mobile site & Apps); Be viewed and contacted 20+ times more than standard members; 24/7 phone service; 30+ more benefits only for PREMIUM MEMBERS.
Senior Match is currently owned by SuccessfulMatch.com, a Californian company that has been in the online dating business since 2001. Senior Match is the largest senior dating & meetup site for mature men and women over 45s. Senior Match aims to create a seniors meetup community where the living-alone senior people can meet the like-minded single seniors. More than 1 million older men and women feel like showing off themselves confidently in Moments, with photos or comments, so apparently mature singles are never alone.
