About WantMatures


WantMatures is the mature dating site featured in our review today. It doesn’t have a dedicated app, but does it have anything else to offer? Yes! WantMatures only has four functions, but they work together to form a seamless dating experience for mature users.

WantMatures Overview

WantMatures separates itself from cougar dating sites, instead of pitching itself as a way for mature singles to form personal connections online. Although this service lacks an app, it certainly isn’t lacking in users! With over 9 million members around the globe, this site is perfect for singles in their 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s to start dating online.


Here are a few of the high points of WantMatures.

3 of the 4 features available are free

Large user base

The site is easy to use


These are a few areas where WantMatures fell short of expectations.

Members and Profiles

As you could probably guess from the name of this review, WantMatures is mainly frequented by mature singles. This exact age range varies, but most members are 35 years old or older. Of course, since this site is for mature singles, you’ll also be able to find singles in their 70’s or 80’s on the site as well. WantMatures is especially popular in Australia, the United States, and the UK.

The profile quality on this site is decent. Although WantMatures doesn’t do anything special or use a new approach, the profiles provide a fair amount of information such as age, location, body type, height, and hobbies. You’ll also be able to see a member’s photos and videos on their profile. Unfortunately, you will need to upgrade if you want to see full-sized pictures and watch videos; otherwise, you’re limited to profile photos only.


Unfortunately, online safety is a conversation we have to have in every review. On the plus side, WantMatures takes a proactive approach to online safety, starting with email verification. Any photos that are uploaded to the site have to be approved by the site administrators, which helps prevent inappropriate content but also discourages scammers from trying to join the site.

Female users on WantMatures also have the option of purchasing an add-on called “Extra Security,” which provides a couple of bonus security measures. Alongside standard HTTPS encryption, they also benefit from an auto-clean system that clears their search history and the option to anonymously browse using “Incognito Mode.”

While these features certainly aren’t groundbreaking, we were happy to see that WantMatures is making an effort to keep its users safe and secure while using the site.

WantMatures User Reviews

You’ve made it this far in our review, but (much like you probably are) we were curious what other people thought about the site, so we asked around.

  • Tyler Garrison - “I didn’t really want to join WantMatures; my grandchildren convinced me to do it. That said, I met my (now) wife on the site, so I suppose I can’t really complain.”
  • Rose Lexington - “I honestly figured WantMatures would be full of creepy old men. Thankfully I was wrong! After using the site for a little bit, I started chatting with a fellow named Tim. He is a lovely guy—we’re actually going out this weekend!”
  • Justin Barrows - “Since I’m only 35, I was fairly hesitant to join a site labeled “mature”—I don’t feel like I’m that old! Apparently, I am, though, because I was quickly matched with a lovely lady named Jude!!”

How do I determine if an account is fake?

When you’re trying to find relationships on the online dating sites, you should be wary of accounts with only a single photo and no additional profile information. These accounts may be fake.

What types of photos am I not allowed to post?

WantMatures allows you to post photos of yourself only. You’re prohibited from posting celebrity photos, photos of other people, or explicit content.

Does the WantMatures website track my location?

No, this matchmaking website does not track your location. The location you see is based on your IP address and is only an approximation.

Experts Conclusion

We had plenty of time to test all the features of WantMatures while doing this review. Overall, we were impressed! This mature dating site is much better than comparable cougar dating sites, although the lack of an app does work against it. Still, with a friendly environment, detailed profile information, an easy-to-use interface, and an extremely large user base, we have to give this platform a positive review overall.
