Plans & Pricing

After you make it through the laborious sign-up process, you’ll be taken straight to a sign-up page and shown three different options. There was no option to click away and nothing directing us to a free page or trial membership.

This option is available, however. You just need to return to the site’s homepage, at which point you can browse the site but won’t be able to see any of the members (all pictures are blurred) or send messages.

We have reviewed this site a few times over the last couple of years and have seen some massive price changes in that time. As a result, the prices quoted below are subject to change.

Premium Light – 3 Months

The Premium Light plan is a three-month subscription that includes unlimited communication and intelligent matchmaking. It costs $22.95 per month.

Premium Classic – 6 Months

The Premium Classic plan is a six-month subscription that includes unlimited photos, intelligent matchmaking, access to all member photos, access to profile visitors, and read receipts for messages. It costs $13.95 per month.

Premium Comfort – 12 Months

The Premium Comfort plan is a year-long subscription that includes unlimited communication, intelligent matchmaking, access to all member photos, access to profile visitors, and read receipts for messages. It costs $11.95 per month.

Premium Light 3 Months
Premium Classic 6 Months
Premium Comfort 12 Months


SilverSingles is a great dating site for people who are over 50 years old. SilverSingles uses first-class, in-depth, and detailed algorithms that help you find that special someone you are looking for. This is a great site for someone who is looking for a genuine connection.

You don’t have to be over the age of 50 to join, which might be a concern for some users. The youngest you can be to join the site is 18-years-old, although as you might expect for a site that targets its services to older users, the vast majority of members are 50+.

Ease of Use

Registration process

Get a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and prepare to bare your soul. The registration process for Silver Singles requires more than just creating a username and entering your basic information. This registration process is also where the advanced dating algorithm kicks off. By answering a flurry of multiple-choice questions about your personal interests, habits, and desires, the algorithm will be able to match you with compatible singles. Be honest and respect the process, then upload your best profile picture and you’re all set.

Profile set-up

Most of your profile is created during registration. All that’s left to do is create a headline and fill out a description of yourself to showcase who you are.

We experienced an issue during the “Location” section. It asks you to input your city/zip code, and then pinpoints your location on a map, before asking how far you are willing to travel for a date. The problem is, it didn’t recognise any Australian cities. In the end, we settled on “Sydney, Florida, USA”.

The good news is that you can change your address once you have joined and it will let you choose Australia at this point. The bad news is that there don’t seem to be many Australian-based users.

Notification settings

In order to customise your notification settings, go to ‘account’ and then ‘notifications’ to customise which alerts you receive.


SilverSingle’s messaging system is just like any other online message system, allowing you to communicate freely with other members with a simple type & send platform. Whenever you have a new message, a notification will pop up on the top of the dating website or app’s interface.

Message filters

You can specify the kind of person that is allowed to contact you with message filters like country, age, distance, photos, and more.

Daily matches

You’ll receive 3-7 matches per day based on the qualities you’ve expressed that you’re looking for in a match.

Member search

You can browse the member database using simple filters like age and location to pick and choose profiles that catch your eye. You can message these members right away.

Special Features

SilverSingles has superior algorithm features. In the beginning, it asks you a plethora of questions to understand who you are and what you’re looking for.

This way, it can match you very well with potential suitors, giving you exactly what you want. With SilverSingles’ premium membership, you can regularly receive profile suggestions matching your preferences. SilverSingles focuses on the over 50-year-old dating crowd, and they purposefully aim to make dating easy and accessible in your daily life. They offer a mobile dating app optimised for both iOS and Android. This user-friendly dating app means that you can have endless hours of fun dating online on your smart-phone and tablet too, whether at home, or on-the-go! With SilverSingles’ premium membership you will have full access to the dating app, which includes all the features you enjoy on the website.

Information protection

No need to worry about your personal data being shared, as SilverSingles uses an SSL encryption and a fraud detection system to keep your information private.

Customer support

Customer Support at SilverSingles aims for a 48 hours response time. However, SilverSingles is somewhat limited in this area. With no phone communication and no Live Chat, you are left with little more than an email that’s very hard to find. Instead, the site tries to direct you through seemingly endless FAQs.

  • Phone Support
    Customer service is not currently available by phone, but the company has a fax number.
  • Email
    The company staff can be reached via email.
  • FAQ
    The FAQ section can help you set up your profile, delete an account, walk you through registration, and other need-to-know features.

Final Word

SilverSingles has been providing a way for people over 50 to get back on the market for a long time now. Their efficient searching and matching algorithm helps you find your soulmate within a matter of minutes. The website is very easy to use and there are a few top features to help you out.
