With a streamlined website focused only on finding a long-time partner for members, Singles50 has a staggering 41% success rate over the years. Since its inception, it has gained over 250,000 members.

  • Only 40+ singles are allowed
  • 41% success rate
  • Compatibility test results against other members is informative and insightful
  • Most members are between 40 - 50 years old
  • Singles are more experienced and know exactly what they want

The members of Singles50 are experienced singles who've been around the block a few times and know exactly what they want. This isn't a site where an age gap is celebrated (i.e. a more mature user guiding the younger, more naive user); no, there are different dating sites for that. All Singles50 members are 50+ singles (technically, 40+), so they are on the same wavelength, they share the same life experiences, and would generally get along easier. Even better, the ratio between male and female Singles50 users is almost perfectly divided in half. This gives both genders an equal chance to initiate a conversation, unlike other sites where women are basically swarmed by men. They've reported a 41% success rate of helping singles find their long-term partner.

Signing Up

Singles50 Registration
  • Through Facebook or email
  • Long personality test, all field required
  • You have to be 40 years old or higher to register

If you tick "I am male", it automatically highlights "Looking for female". Though heteronormative, it is not necessarily exclusive of LGBT individuals as you can still manually check the same gender under the "Looking for" field. The personality test is similar to the ones you'll encounter on Be2 and Lisa18, but then again, they're all under the same company. Those in the younger generation might say that these 5-paged personality tests with several choices might be too long, that they're too tedious to fill out. Well, the target audience of Singles50 (40 years old and above), might actually appreciate it more. Since they would use the service to find a long-term match, an extensive personality test might be the better option compared to blind date or a personal matchmaker.

Making Contact

Singles50 Messaging
  • Free members have limited access to messaging
  • You can see a blurred preview of the message
  • Sending someone a message automatically gives them access to your photo
  • You'll receive messages of the profiles of members who just recently signed up to Singles50
  • Sending messages to other users is free for women

For a dating site that capitalises on their complicated, scientific personality testing, the options in the search bar are actually quite simple. The criteria are the basic ones: ethnicity, religion, shape, drinking habits, etc. As expected, the age preference starts at 40 years old (and ends at 90). Free members can receive but not read messages. When you open your inbox, you'll find a blurred preview of the overall message with an invitation to subscribe to premium. During the test, it was discovered that free members can send one initial messages to matches, but their replies will be blurred. Sending a message to your match gives them access to your photos by default. You can undo this action on the right on the messaging page. 

Profile Quality

Singles50 Profile
  • Your photo must not include any children
  • Shows your compatibility with another user
  • Despite lengthy personality test, profiles still tend to have limited information
  • The profiles are very detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to women for free

There are a few prerequisites for your display photo: your face must be clearly visible in the photo, there must be no one else with you in the photo, and there should not be children, violence, weapons, and sexual content. There is a check mark that makes your profile photo appear blurred to other users (but you can release it to individuals that you choose). but we discourage using this. After all, your main reason for joining is to show yourself to as many people as possible.

When you visit someone else's profile, you will see your compatibility with them in terms of:

  • Rationality vs. Emotionality
  • Tradition vs. Innovation
  • Distance vs. Attachment
  • Observation vs. Feeling

These ratings were taken from your personality test at the point of registration. When you click on each characteristic, you'll see a brief summary of what it means and your overall compatibility. You also get a general rating of your similarities from 1 - 100 (100 being the highest).

Real Life Review

"My partner and I met at strange points in our life. I had just retired from my 30-year career, and Singles50 was her first try at putting herself out into the world again. You see, she got divorced a couple of years ago and she told me that she was ready to look for love again. When I was scrolling through Singles50, I found the profile of this woman who was laughing joyously in her photo. That drew me in immediately. After going on a few dates, I never would've thought that she had just gone through something big in her life. I fell in love with her soul, her positivity, and her endless love for the world. Growing up a traditionalist, I was absolutely skeptical of dating websites at first. But I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Singles50 for introducing me to the love of my life at 56." - Ex-realtor (57)

Design and Usability

The website design of Singles50 is basically the same as that of Be2 and C-Date, but that doesn't take away its credibility. Like the two previously mentioned websites, Singles50 has a clean, sleek look. The functions are straightforward and your technological experience doesn't matter; even determined 60 year-olds could navigate this website. The important tabs are placed on the top where your eyes would first land. The main page is only dedicated to your matches (with a little box on the top right of recent messages) so you are directed to your main purpose without meaningless distractions. Overall, the website looks and functions just how a website that facilitates serious relationships would.

Editors Conclusion

Photo Chris
Singles50 is a niche matchmaking website that delivers on its promise. Members are strictly managed so that only 40+ year olds are registered on the website. Even though unlimited messaging is only for premium members, communication is still encouraged as free users can still send an initial message. Many of the profiles are legitimate and there's a big chance you'll find your partner among one of them. This is helped by their matchmaking system which calculates your similarities and compatibility. If you are a single over 40 who's tired of unsuccessful blind dates, try this site out for free.
