SilverSingles offers three types of premium subscriptions. 3-month membership costs 89.95 NZD per month which costs a total of 269.85 NZD. Signing-up for a 6-months membership would cost you 54.95 NZD per month for a total of 329.70 AUD. Whereas a 12-months membership would cost you a total of 599.40 NZD which is 49.95 NZD monthly.

Having a subscription allows you to make use of the dating site’s features such as chatting with other users and viewing profile photos. Using SilverSingles mobile app is also exclusive for paying members. So if you are serious about finding a partner through this platform, you should avail membership now. The 6-months subscription offers a pretty good deal especially if you are seeking a longtime membership.

Cancelling your premium subscription is pretty straightforward. Navigate your way to "My Account" via the menu and click "Membership." Select the cancellation link, choose your reason for cancellation and hit "Continue." Enter your password and tap "Confirm." After you've completed these steps, you will receive a confirmation email from SilverSingles. You can still enjoy the premium features until the subscription ends.

You can also send an email directly to customer support, support@silversingles.com. However, deactivating your subscription from the main dashboard is the much faster and easier way.

Yet, you can still find younger users—in their late 30s-40s—in the dating site who are probably looking to date older men or women. Members of SilverSingles are not looking for anything casual. They are looking for a serious relationship with someone they can spend the rest of their lives with.

Making Contact on SilverSingles

Silver Singles Contact Members
  • Matching is based on calculated compatibility
  • There is a ‘Favourites’ list
  • Sending of smiles is free
  • Instant chat messaging is strictly for premium members

    The members displayed in every user’s search tabs are matches suggested by SilverSingles. SilverSingles calculates the percentage of compatibility of every member who signs up on their dating website and puts them on the search results of members who are a perfect match.

    Users are able to adjust their search filters to location proximity, height, age, and similarities. Members can also filter the results by displaying new users, members they have come in contact with, and those who belong to their favourites list. ‘Wildcard Matches’ are also suggested for premium members.

    SilverSingles only allows premium members to send messages. However, as a free user, you can propose your interest by sending a smile. SilverSingles notifies you either by email, browser, or phone notifications—if you are a premium member—for the messages you receive. You are able to turn this off if you want to.

    SilverSingles Profile Quality

    Silver Singles Profile
    • Users can see other members’ profile information even without a paid subscription
    • Profile information feature the user’s freely written answers that show user personality and character
    • Member preview shows his or her location and occupation
    • The profiles are quite detailed
    • Profile pictures are not visible to anyone for free
    • Profile Images and profile information can be changed later.

    Member profiles on SilverSingles feature a substantial amount of information. All members are able to read through the profiles of any other user, but only premium members can see the profile photos.

    Freely written answers to the seven questions asked by SilverSingles upon registration are displayed on the profile. Most of the questions show what makes the user happy and what are the things that are important to him or her. So, depending on each member’s answers, one can truly show who they are on their profile.

    We didn’t encounter any fake profiles on the dating site. In fact, our suggested matches only featured at least 8 matches at a time.

    This shows that there are not many users who are active on the website, contrary to what SilverSingles advocate on their page.

    SilverSingles App

    silversingles app
    • Features are the same for both desktop and app version
    • Download the app for free

    The app does not differ much from the desktop version in terms of features. You will be able to use on the app all the features your account has whether you are a basic member or a premium member.

    The only difference is mobility as the app can be used even when you are away from the desktop. You can get the app for free for both iOS and Android devices.

    Both platforms also hold the same design and sport the same pink-and-white colour tones.

    Overall, the app is a good addition to SilverSingles' features and services.
