Something Serious offers their mature website exclusively for senior singles who are looking to find love and long-term commitment. Whether you are stepping back into the dating pool after a long break, or recovering from a break up, you are bound to find someone that takes your fancy with over 2 million single men and women to choose from. Innovative extras like video profiling and dating diaries, but all with an easy to use interface and fun and simple messaging and search tools make this a great choice for senior singles looking for, well, something serious!
Something serious manages to simultaneously offer tons of great features, but without being overly complicated. Our favourite functions are the communication tools. As well as an easy to use inbox where you can send messages, questions, winks and flirts, they also support instant messenger, and allow you to search by who’s currently online so you can always find someone to chat to. The profile allows you to add a video profile to make a more ‘real’ first impression, and you can even create your very own dating diary about anything you please. Careful - they’re addictive!
The website also offers matchmaking tools if you find the search too complicated or time consuming. Simply head to the Encounters tab. Here you can browse through singles and simply mark them as yes, no or maybe. If they respond positively and so do you, you will both be notified. Simple!
Some senior dating websites clearly don’t have mature singles in mind, and take up far too much time or include a complicated interface to deal with. Not so with Something Serious. In fact, within moments you are a fully signed up member of the website. All you need to do is enter your name, gender, date of birth and email address. This email will be where your verification is sent to, as well as where you are updated on matches and messages so please enter it carefully.
Once you’ve done this, you will be prompted to begin filling out your profile. This is done step by step, and you can skip any steps you are uncomfortable disclosing. Most of the profile is open ended, so that you can describe yourself and your interests in your own words.
We love the helpful tips on the right hand side, and the top examples often found on the left. Make sure to upload a photo here. Don’t worry, no one is a model! If you fill in your profile, you will be eligible for a free introduction, a great way to help members know you’ve arrived. A step by step guide for how to verify your email address is shown to help you, and your email will take you straight to the home page.
Something Serious takes safety as seriously as it does finding matches. As well as live chat available 24/7, and a freephone number if you are uncomfortable signing up with financial details online, they also offer their own safety tips page. This offers advice on everything you need to know, whether you are a veteran at online dating, or a complete newbie. Online tips include keeping financial information safe and trusting your instincts, while offline tips include meeting in a public place and taking your own method of transport.
The website also offers a great help and support section which answers the most common online dating queries you might have.
