Annual senior dating site reviews update
We’ve broken down the top 20 senior dating sites, checked and cross checked features, total members, and even hammered down the actual traffic stats for this past year. The numbers we’ve relied on were from Alexa.com and other publicly available sources.
Here is what we found:
1. Most of the top senior dating sites for the past year continue to be the most used sites. However, in comparison to last year there has been about a 8% spike in traffic to the top senior dating sites, collectively.
2. As a result, based on what we’ve seen in site user-ship we’ adjust downward our rankings for Senior dating sites SeniorFriendFinder and SeniorPeopleMeet one slot, which took seniorpeoplemeet off the top 5 and pushed OurTime up two slots with Match still ranking first and eHarmony second.
As a part of this years process we also spent a fair amount of time on each site counting the numbers of single and available seniors in the cities with the largest populations of single seniors. The 8 cities below were a central focus in collection of a reasonable sample size. This was interesting and more a test to see if these top senior dating sites had a large member base in these cities but it did not play a role in the final rankings.
- Clearwater, Florida
- Hialeah, Florida
- Cape Coral, Florida
- Surprise, Arizona
- Honolulu Hawaii
- Warren, Michigan
- Independence, Missouri
All our top sites met this test. Again, we didn’t see that much of a shift overall. Their were no new senior dating sites growing that much over the past year.
Likewise, prices for the leading senior dating sites also maintained at a fairly stable rate, if anything adjusting downwards by a small fraction.
We suspect that senior continue to be more price sensitive to paying for online dating and the new senior dating sites has also lead to more pressure on the largest dating sites for seniors to maintain their pricing. The net result though continues to be relatively low prices for dating sites that cater to those over 50. Essentially, dating online, post retirement is less costly than online dating for mainstream Americans. Lastly, it should also be noted that Match.com and OurTime share the same parent co. and Match is a all ages dating sites, open to those over 18 and not just seniors.
