The cost: eharmony is one of the priciest of the bunch: A one-month membership goes for $54.95, but prices go as low as $18.95/month when you sign up for a year. (As a rule, membership prices get lower the longer your commitment to the site is. Which is fine, because a strong connection probably won't magically appear in just one month.) There is a free version, but it doesn't let you communicate with your matches.)
Be sure to also include what you care about. Don’t use the crutch of describing your job and moving on. It’s not a resume, and your job should get little focus. If you love your job, say so. But more importantly, what are you passionate about?Do you care most about making music? Helping others? Winning a pro surfing competition or rescuing stray dogs? If you care about learning new languages and taking trips to test your skills, say so! The right people are going to think that’s awesome.
Your profile isn’t just your first impression, in many ways it’s also the beginning of the conversation you’ll have with someone. If someone’s interested in messaging you, they’ll often go to your profile to find clues and hints of what to talk about, so as you’re writing about yourself think of things you could bring up that will make it easier for someone to come up to you. Whether it’s a favorite book, your relationship with your family, or the fact that you’re planning a vacation, little details they can ask you more about or comment on will make you more approachable. 
Why it works: Unlike eharmony, which chooses your matches for you based on questionnaire results, Match has you create a profile that will pop up in other users' feeds. While Match does suggest five daily matches for you, you're also free to browse the entire pool of profiles by age range, location, or online status, which makes Match a significantly more social option than eharmony and slightly better for those looking for something casual. This freedom is great for the picky people out there whose idea of hell is a blind date. Match also has a cool feature called "Missed Opportunity" that uses your location to help you find matches that you've crossed paths with in real life. We'd also like to point out that Match sees a 42% spike in registrations between the December 26 and February 14, which makes sense — those cold months leading up to Valentine's Day can be torturously lonely. But if you were wondering when the best time to sign up is, it's right now.

The cost: If you decide to upgrade to a premium account, you can choose from one-, three-, six-, or 12-month plans. One month of SeniorMatch Premium will cost you $29.95. You'll save per month if you choose one of the longer-term packages. Three months cost $59.95 ($19.95/month), six months cost $95.95 ($15.95/month), and a year costs $143.95 ($11.95/month).
The cost: A standard account is free and gives you base-level access to the site's features. The lower of the premium tiers is the silver plan, which grants access to more features and has two payment options: one month for $22.95 or three months for $35.85. The gold tier has the most features available on Senior FriendFinder and also has two payment plans: one month for $34.95 or three months for $59.94 plus a free month. In both instances the three-month plans are significantly better deals, working out to be $11.95 a month for silver and $14.98 a month for gold.

This next tip is especially for women—If you add a question or a conversation starter for the person looking at your profile to message you about, it can really help someone break the ice and message you first. It’s hard coming up with ways to start a conversation that aren’t the same tired, “Hi, how are you tonight?” messages. So help people out! Tell them to share their favorite book, tell you the last hike they went on, or to elaborate on something you’re interested in. You’ll get a lot more messages and have better conversations.

Coupes in age-gap relationships get a lot of flack for only being interested in the sex or the money or the status such relationships can bring, but you don’t have to be a sugar daddy or sugar mommy to attract someone years younger. Sometimes romantic connections form between people who were born in a completely different decade, and that’s perfectly all right as long as both individuals treat one another with respect and love. Just know that age-gap relationships can be difficult to maintain because of family pressures, lifestyle changes, and different expectations for the future.
While it is important to include a photo in your online dating profile, you must be selective with which photos you upload. Use a recent photo (taken in the last year) that is a genuine portrayal of yourself. 80 per cent of our survey respondents said they would disapprove if their date turned up looking different from their dating profile. Resist the temptation then to use an old, flattering photo because it will only cause you problems in the long run. According to EliteSingles members, the worst common photo mistake is an image that is too revealing. 19 per cent maintained wearing sunglasses in a photo was a no go, followed by poorly photo shopped pictures with 17 per cent. So do it properly - get your friends or family to help you take a nice photo of yourself. A good tip is to take a photo outside. The natural light, particularly in the afternoon can be very flattering and bring out your best side!
Trying to be funny while writing is hard, but one of the most attractive things for both men and women is someone who has a good sense of humor and can be fun. Don’t feel like you have to tell an actual joke, but try sharing something silly or a little weird about yourself. It doesn’t have to be hilarious, but a light-hearted anecdote can go a long way towards showing people that you’re a fun, friendly, and approachable person.
When it comes to online dating, it’s all about putting your most authentic self out there and finding the person who’s interested and into you. You never know what’s going to spark someone’s interest and make them say yes to matching up… It could be that photo of you reading “Howl” by a campfire, how you admitted you love Bill Murray movies, the obscure Calvin and Hobbes quote you added, or a photo of you on vacation in Disneyland with your kids. The same types of little, silly things that can catch your eye when you meet someone in person, can get someone’s attention online too. You just have to be yourself and be open to what comes your way. 
The gist: Senior FriendFinder comes from the same family as the hookup site Adult FriendFinder (read our review of the site). Unlike Adult FriendFinder, the senior version will not bombard your screen with pornographic images as soon as you visit the URL. Senior FriendFinder is for the more adventurous older crowd, though. When signing up, you have the option to choose woman, man, couple (man/woman), or group (two or more people) as both an identifier and what you're searching for.
