Really, age is nothing but a number when it comes to online dating sites and apps. As long as you’re a consenting adult you can feel free to sign up for them all. However, if you’re a person over 40 looking for matches who are over the age of 40 as well there is no better place to be than Match.
Not only is it a true O.G. when it comes to dating websites, but it also boasts an impressive over 40 userbase. In 2019, Match.com shared with The New York Post, 69 percent of its userbase is between the ages of 39 and 74. The rest, the website said, are millennials.
How it works: Like OkCupid, the user journey at Match starts by signing up on the website. Then, users fill out their profile including a photo and short bio section. Next, users are asked to fill in a questionnaire about their likes and dislikes, political views, lifestyle habits, and more.
Price: Match does not come with a free version, however, it does come with several subscription plans including $38.99 for one month, $20.99 per month for three months, $18.99 per month for six months, or $17.99 per month for a year. Picking a plan is required for signup.
3. Best for future globe-trotters: Tinder
Now’s the perfect time to find love and a little bit of wanderlust with Tinder. The famed dating app is usually well-known for its quick hookup potential with others in a user’s surrounding area, however, right now, Tinder is taking swiping global.
Tinder announced it’s now offering its premium Passport feature, which typically costs between $9.99 to $19.99 per month, for free to all of its users. The feature offers users the option to swipe left or right on anyone on the app anywhere in the world.
“Our hope is that you use the Passport feature to virtually transport yourself out of self-quarantine to anywhere in the world,” the app said in a statement. “You can check in on folks in their hometown, college town, or sister city, and find those across the world who are going through the same things. If nothing else, you can learn how to say ‘hey’ in another language.” Who knows, maybe you’ll meet the love of your life now and go on a global adventure together later.
How it works: In case you’ve never opened the app, Tinder again asks users to sign up with a name and email as well as a location. Next, users create a bio and add some photos. Then, all that’s left to do is swipe left (no interest) or right (interested) on all the people around you.
