Getting older these days no longer means putting yourself out to pasture. Today's experienced generation doesn't simply give up on having new experiences and expanding their horizons. That's why a site like Senior Sizzlepromises you, "Sexy partners in the prime of life!" Despite their age-positive motto, when you first sign in, you'll really notice little difference between this site and other sex dating site on the market.
The featured profiles, for example, focus on women in their late 20s or early 30s, when I sign into SeniorSizzle as a man. It makes me wonder if the purpose is to meet a person your own age or to hook up with someone much younger. I guess that maybe it was a bit naive of me to think that they would promote older females to their male members first, when probably the young ladies make more marketing sense.
However, I could find some mature women when I did a free search. You can do local searches in the U.S. by Zip code and in the U.K. by a predetermined selection of cities in a dropdown menu. Canadians are left with only province-wide results unfortunately. Before you pay, you'll only get to see a limited number of profiles fully. Some premium members pay to allow all levels of members to see their completely written details and some of their photos.
You can also use instant messaging, read blogs as well as check out forums, an online magazine and chat rooms free. You will find many active members in the 40 plus range through these featured areas. Also, replying to messages from paid members is always free, so if you upgrade you can contact everyone. Again, if you pay extra to allow all-level access, then free members will be able to initiate contact by email.
One technical issue I should mention is that the site might not be compatible with your browser. You may need to look for some advice in your browser's help section to see if you can change the compatibility setting to work with the site's current design until they make it compatible with the newest browser versions on the market. This lapse in maintenance is surprising, because this site is owned by a very large online dating network that is normally on top of such issues.
For now, the site has a modest, but steady number of visitors to its pages. I know that its parent company is very successful at aggressively marketing their services and that they also pull profiles from a huge shared database from their various portals. Senior Sizzle has a lot of potential and gives you enough to preview free to make it worth checking out.
