#1 Location

The “location” criteria is a rather important one. Depending on the kind of relationship you’re looking for you’ll have to be more specific or you’ll be able to maintain it quite wide.

What does that mean?

It means that if you’re looking for a great match to share some hobbies with or to meet on different activities, then it is very important that you narrow your search to local profiles. The closer a match will be to you, you’ll have more chances of meeting more often and of getting to know each other on a more intimate level.

If, on the contrary, you just want to start meeting other senior and chatting online, you won’t need to look for local profiles. Instead, you can start to meet seniors all over the world!

#2 Biography

Biographies contain keywords such as travel, cooking, sport, etc that you can search for in the search tool.

If you’re looking for a specific activity or a specific trait, you can just type the keyword and the senior dating site will start to look through different biographies to show you the ones most compatibles with your searched term.

A very interesting way of finding a great match!
