Mature Date Link is one of those chat sites where you create a profile, check out other people’s profiles and chat with new people in the hopes that you’ll find who you’re looking for. Unfortunately, the hope of finding that special someone using this site doesn’t look good.
You can create a free profile on MatureDateLink and use the message boards, but you’re cut off from sending messages or from using the live chat feature unless you pay. This means you can’t contact other members, which is the main function of any dating site.
It’s understandable that the site needs to make money, but preventing nonpaying users from sending messages limits the interaction of paying members. However, it’s impossible to tell who’s a paying member and who created a free profile. In other words, if you contact people and they don’t respond, is it because they’re not interested, or because they simple can’t respond to anyone?
Considering the number of profiles that came up, it appears as though there are a lot of people who use this site. Chat sites are supposed to ease the difficulties of dating, not make the situation more complicated, so on that count Mature Date Link fails, as is the case with its many sister sites, such as the fully reviewed Adult Date Link.
Creating a free profile allows you to use the message boards, however the topics are dominated by people just looking for sex right now. Plus, from what I could tell the users are from all over the U.S., so it’s difficult to find someone on the message boards who lives near you.
This site has potential. It has an attractive design, a user-friendly interface that makes it easy to set up an account, and it’s actually fun to fill out the forms to create a profile. However, the site needs to provide more free access or else members, including the paying ones, will go to sites that don’t charge for the same services.
