The online dating website MatureXMatch.com is part of a massive network of dating portals. Many of them are focussing on elderly people, with sites such as, MilfHookUp, MatureDating, SingleMomsChat, and OlderChat just to mention a few of them. The starting page offers a free sign up and provides some general information about Dating and claims to have an enormous database. We are talking about 96 million members worldwide, and half of them are located in the US.
The sign-up process on MatureXMatch.com is not fast compared to other dating websites because it is a five-step process of providing information.
- Gender and gender preference
- Date of Birth and location including zip code
- Username, choose a password, provide a valid email address
- Fill out a short personal information form
- Choose your profile headline
After that, the operator Bulova Invest Ltd., headquartered in Tortola on the British Virgin Islands, will send you the activation link to your email to grant you access to the main members’ area.
The interface and design of MatureXMatch.com
As mentioned before, the starting page looks extremely familiar to us, the reason is that the design of MatureXMatch.com is remarkably similar to the design of its sister sites. Only the logo is different. The interface is good, and all features can be accessed from the header menu. The tabs have a drop-down menu that further reveals the sections of each category. The font is hard to read because it is way too small. Still, overall the interface allows easy navigation for all users of all age.
With a basic membership, your rights to use features are limited. Suppose you are really interested in viewing a member's profile and communicate efficiently. In that case, you need to upgrade your membership and purchase a subscription package or coins/points.
Former members accuse the website of implementing moderators using faked profiles to animate users to senseless chats and to lure them into subscription traps. A common trick of the company behind this cheeky site is to offer a 3-day trial membership for little money. Typically, the naïve user is not aware that the termination deadline is only 72 hours which makes a cancellation in time almost impossible. This is the point where the 3-day trial membership turns into a regular one, with an automatic extension every month. The automatic renewal policy is clearly stated in the terms and conditions of the website.
