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 in 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.

Notification settings

In order to customize your notification settings, go to ‘account’ and then ‘notifications’ to customize 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. When starting out it asks you a plethora of questions to make sure it gets to know you really well. 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 own 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.

Site Safety


No longer interested in another member? Unmatch them and they will not be able to contact you any further.

Report a profile

Are you being harassed by another user or do you suspect a fake profile? You can report these profiles to SilverSingles and they will personally investigate this user’s profile.

Hide your profile

If you need to take a break, you can hide your profile without deleting your message history or information. Resume when you’re ready.

Automatic message censorship

Built-in to the SilverSingles website is a system that detects vulgar or offensive language. These messages are automatically blocked and not sent to the other member.


You can block a member at any time, which will take away their access to view your profile and contact you.

Dating safety

Visit the company’s ‘Staying Safe’ page to gather tips and tricks to date responsibly.

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 limited when it comes to customer support. With no phone communication and no live chat, you are left with a fax number and email. It seems that they rely heavily on the FAQ section of their site to answer questions and inquiries.

  • 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.

Questions & Answers


How do I get a free membership before signing Up?

Top5 Team

SilverSingles also has a free membership you can use, and if you want to try out premium, they’ve also got a free trial

Sue Goodwin

I’ve already tried 2 sites and they were a bust. Very disappointed. I’m 68 years old and I prefer a more limited membership; such as 1 month. My income is limited and your rates are higher than other sites. So is it possible to join for only 1 month? Continue if I want, or canel? Please advise.

SilverSingles has a 3 month package but not a one month package. You can register for their free basic membership but it has very limited features. Nevertheless, this could give you a taste of what their website is like. Good luck!

If I sign up for a year, find a match, can I cancel my membership

Yes, you can cancel at any time.

I signed up for a free account today–am concerned about the distance preference. You list 50 miles to start with, and then offer further distances. I really need to find people in close proximity to where I live–Evanston, IL–60202. As I don’t have a car, I don’t want matches that are really more than 5 miles away. Can you send me profiles that meet that kind of parameter?

Top5 Team

On SilverSingles you can’t make your location that specific, but if your location and profile are up to date, you’re more likely to see matches that are closer to you.

Freddie Mooney

Do you accept PayPal?

Yes, Silver Singles accepts payments through PayPal. You can also pay with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Diners Club credit cards.

Looking for men friends only.


I haven’t signed up yet but was wondering if you could answer this question. I signed up woman looking for a man but was wondering if it could also add woman looking for a woman or women to go out with, travel with but not as a sexual partner or a gay partner….just a new woman friend. How would that work?

Top5 Team

On SilverSingles specifically you can’t change your orientation once you’ve signed up, but if you’d like to explore you totally should and can on our other recommended dating sites! You can also always open up a new account to change your orientation.


Great place
