Our Review

Founded in 2017, Singles50 is a matchmaking website for seniors. The service is under be2 S.à.r.l., the same company that operates Be2 and AcademicSingles. The main target audience of the site is 40+ singles who look for friendship, companionship or another chance in love. If you are one of them, don’t hesitate to join Singles50! Who knows, maybe your true love is just a few clicks away.

Do you want to know more about the website first? No problem, you are welcome to check out our detailed review below.

In order to join Singles50, first of all you need to register. Please note that you must be 40 years old or older, otherwise you will not be allowed to sign up. Due to this restriction, the majority of members are in the same age range and share similar personal experiences. Therefore, they are supposed to find partners easier and quicker.

Registration Process (<10 Minutes)

Step 1. State who you are looking for (a man or a woman).

Step 2. Complete the personality test.

Step 3. Specify your gender and some basic information like: city/postcode, profession, education, yearly income (it won’t be shown to your matches), religion, number of children, drinking and smoking habits, height, figure, ethnic group, eye color, hair color and hair length.

Step 4. Indicate your first name and date of birth. Please note that you must be 40+ years old in order to be accepted by the system.

Step 5. Enter your email address and choose a password.

Step 6. Confirm your email address via the verification email.

Step 7. Login and personalize your profile at your will (add more relevant information or upload photos).

The registration process is pretty long due to the personality test you must complete. However, it is worth it, since the more accurate your answers are, the more suitable matches you are going to receive.

Here are a few examples of the test questions and answers to them:

  • When embarking on a new relationship - I want to talk about it with someone close to me or I don’t talk it over with anyone else

  • Once I realize I’ve fallen in love - I don’t hesitate and show my feelings right away or I send only subtle signals or I hope my potential partner feels the same and tells me first

  • What appeals to you most? - self-interest or caring for others, thinking or doing, family and friends or career and success, talking or listening, math and physics or art and music, simplicity or complexity

  • How well does this generally describe you? - romantic, dominant, organized, serious, warm-hearted, open to change, open to criticism, expressive, decisive (for each characteristic, you need to select one option among “not at all”, “more or less” and “very well”)

Design and User Experience

The website has a simple clean design. The main theme is blue and grey with easy-to-read font. Since the matchmaking service is direct and straightforward, the design also tries to not distract the user. There are only two main tabs on the top: Matches (the people whose profiles the system analyzed and defined you are compatible with) and Message Inbox (where you can read and reply to your conversations). In general, the website’s interface is user friendly and easy-to-navigate for users with minimal technical skills.

Main Features

The main feature of the site is its scientific matchmaking algorithm based on an extensive personality questionnaire. Based on your answers to the test questions, the system gives you an analysis of your personality and your ideal partner. Therefore, you will only be matched with partners that are compatible.

Unlike other dating websites, Singles50 does not offer any special features. The service tries to not distract its users by technical functionality. In fact, it aims to connect people as soon as possible and make them communicate directly.

Important Things You Need to Pay Attention to

Before you decide to subscribe to a paid membership, please test the website and consider the pricing for each package to understand if it is worth your time and money. Also, keep in mind that there is no option to cancel a paid subscription online. Instead, you will need to mail a letter or send a fax to the company headquarters and give a 14-days period of notice. Be sure to cancel your subscription after you find your partner, otherwise it will be automatically renewed for the period of the same length as the initial one. Date wisely and responsibly!
