Senior Next Review - UPDATED Jan. 2017
Senior Next is one of the latest senior dating sites around and so far it looks like it’s going to be a good one, so it’s definitely worth giving it a shot.
Based on what we saw when we first logged into this dating site for seniors, it’s a serious, unpretentious and functional website that could still use a little improvement, but it’s definitely on the right track. The design is nice, the features work properly and there are no major issues with functionality. The membership base could be a bit bigger but this is a brand new site so it’s still early.
Design and Functionality
The prettiest part of this dating website for seniors is the front page, where you either register or log in. The design is really nice and pleasant, it’s not cluttered and has plenty of pictures of happy-looking seniors to keep the visitors confident. Once you actually enter the site, the design becomes simpler, even minimalist, but it gets the job done. The color palette is pleasant and the logo is very nice.
We were happy to see that all the features on the website, from browsing and messaging to updating account and profile settings, are working properly. Since it’s a dating site for seniors, it was important to keep everything in plain sight so the users don’t get lost or spend too much time looking for basic stuff like an inbox, settings and quick search. All the buttons and fields are where you’d normally expect them to be, so navigating the site is very quick and easy, especially once you complete the registration process.

The most important feature of any dating site is messaging, because that’s how the first steps towards a great friendship, or more, are made. However, in order to start messaging someone, you need to become friends first, and that’s what browsing and search options are for. We are happy to say that these important features work great on SeniorNext.com. It’s incredibly easy to find a person you like and start messaging, and the features are conveniently located center page.
In addition to messaging, you can also use the chat, where you can talk to the users more directly. There is also an option of liking a person and sending them a flirt, which is something like a “poke,” but this feature is reserved for premium users only. Speaking of premium, users who upgrade to this category have the option of seeing who’s viewing their profile, of checking out full-size user photos, using the advanced search, and more.
As for the search, quick search to the right allows you to look for users based on their gender and age, but you can also browse members based on the proximity to your location and other criteria.
Senior Next is a place that doesn’t have tons of users just yet, but there is plenty of people to talk to all the time. Women and men are pretty much equally represented, which is always a major plus. The users are active and seem very enthusiastic about meeting people through this dating site. Seniors are rarely trolling so pretty much all the users you’ll find on Senior Next are real life people looking for companionship and love.
Sometimes people open up a profile on a dating site and simply abandon it, without ever coming back or even uploading a photo. It’s not the case with this site, where most users have at least one picture (often more than just one) as well as detailed profiles with information about their interests, background, political and religious views and such. Users also specify what they are there for – dating, companionship or just talking and messaging, which makes it easier for you to find a perfect match.
There are plenty of senior dating sites out there, but if you are looking for a small and growing community of honest, interesting people, this might be the right place for you. Just don’t expect anything crazy or fancy, because everything on this dating site, from features to design, is pretty basic and down to earth.
