Sixties Connect proves that age is just a number when it comes to online dating. Whether you have been out of the dating game for a long time, hoping to build up some confidence after a break up, or simply searching for the next partner in your life, this is a great start. With thousands of singles, searchable by your location and interests, and great functionality all easy to use regardless of age or technical ability, sign up today and see what Sixties Connect can do for your love life.
Sixties Connect offers a straightforward sign up process to get started quickly and easily with the world of online dating. It literally takes minutes to go from the home page of the site, to browsing singles in your area. First, enter a few basic pieces of information, which can be done either step by step or on one sign up page. Use an email address that you check often, and will be able to verify easily. Once you have entered these details, your location will be automatically verified, and you will be shown how to start building a profile, by answering some descriptive questions about yourself, uploading a photo to your profile, and including answers to some multiple choice fields, such as your interests and hobbies.
Once these are completed, (you can also skip and come back later) you will need to verify your email address. Sixties Connect gives you screenshots to show you how to access the verification email, even if it has been marked as spam. Once verified, you can begin browsing the site!
Singles profiles and photos can be browsed directly from the main page of the website, and there is even a handy toolbar on the right hand side which offers suggestions for improving your profile and drawing attention to yourself. Every feature can be accessed from the main toolbar on the top of the screen, or the notifications bar at the bottom of the screen, which will alert you instantly if you have any new contact, such as messages, profile views, winks or online gifts. Sixties Connect is extremely easy to navigate and allows you to take as much or as little control over finding a match as you please.
Searching for singles should be hassle free, and that’s clearly what Sixties Connect are aiming to achieve with their comprehensive search functionality. Take control of your matchmaking by searching via a number of filters, including age and location, photo and video content within a profile, or interests such as music, film or travel. We love the new ‘Looking for’ feature, which allows you to predefine your ideal match by a number of filters, to better help the algorithms on the website suggest your ideal date.
Once you’ve found what you’re looking for, reach out with a wink or an online gift, send an initial message to test the waters, or use the handy ‘who’s online’ function to launch straight into online chat.
Unique features of the website are the ‘Encounters’ tab, which makes suggestions based on your behavior and profile settings, and allows you to quickly browse by marking each user with a simple yes or no. If there is a mutual match you will be introduced! Also an excellent feature is the Dating Diary which each subscribed user can take advantage of, using the websites inbuilt blogging tool. Use this area to let other users know more about you and your dating experiences, or find out more about them.
It is natural to feel cautious as an older person venturing into the world of online dating. Sixties Connect takes away as much of the fear as possible with excellent security features employed throughout the website. They use Online Dating Protector for 24/7 moderation of the site using powerful anti-scam software. They only take credit card payments using high level SSL security, keeping your financial data safe, and most importantly of all they direct you to comprehensive safety tips which keep you protected when speaking or meeting with strangers for the first time.
These tips are accessible from the bottom of every page of the website, and offer frank and useful guidance for trusting your instincts, keeping personal information private, practical help like having a fully charged phone with you when meeting a new person, and making sure you never meet someone without telling a friend or family member where you are going. These safety guidelines are a must read for anyone new to online dating websites.
The pricing structure is easy to understand, and includes no hidden costs or charges unless you want to purchase bolt-on extras. Without a subscription you can build your profile and favourites list, view other member profiles and send unlimited winks to members you are interested in. Reading and sending messages, using the diary functionality and much more will be off limits however.
Subscriptions get more competitive the more time you commit to. 1 month is therefore the most costly option, and will be charged at $15.00. After that, you can buy 3 or 6 month subscriptions for $10.00 per month, or a year for $9.17 per month. This is a very reasonable pricing structure and cost for a dating website of this kind.
Sixties Connect does exactly what the name suggests, connects singles aged 60+ with likeminded individuals for dating and long term relationships. Throughout the process, the senior market has been taken into account, with a step by step sign up process, an easy to navigate website, and top of the range security features for even the most cautious mature dater.
