DatingGentlemen.com is a specialist dating platform that aims to bring together young women and gentlemen (usually older). The website has a very specific subscriber base allowing women under 30-years old and gentlemen that are over the age of 35 years. The primary objective of this site is to give younger women a friendly and non – judgmental platform where they can connect with wealthy men from various parts of the world. The website is quite simple and doesn’t have all the bells and whistles as you’d find on most sites in this segment.
As mentioned earlier, the primary audience of this website is to bridge the gap between younger women and older men. Given the fact that younger women on this website are seeking the companionship of an older man who is rich, it makes no sense to ask women to pay money to upgrade their membership. The subscription options on this site too are created accordingly.
- com is absolutely free for women.
- Men, who want to upgrade their membership are required to pay a subscription fee:
– 10 day subscription: £19
– 1 month subscription: £49
– 3 month subscription: £129
It is worth noting that subscription plans on this site are pretty expensive, especially when you compare it with other websites in this segment of online dating. Taking all the features this sites brings to the table; it goes without saying that premium membership on this site isn’t very cost – effective.
Looking at the subscription options on this site, you might think that DatingGentlemen.com might have a lot to offer. However, it is disappointing that there is nothing special on this site that might give it a distinctive edge over some of the other sites in the younger women – older men online dating segment. It can be said that you’d find the same set of options on this site at a very high price. Some of the noteworthy features available on this site include:
- Create a free profile for free.
- While women can access all the features on the site for free, male users would have to pay a monthly subscription free to upgrade their membership. Only then would they be able to use all the features that the site has to offer.
- Male users on this site can make the payment using PayPal or direct bank transfer. Alternatively, payment can also be made at a Provident bank branch in Switzerland.
- Users can take advantage of conventional emailing or quickmails (pre-written short messages) to initiate a conversation with other users.
- The IM feature is also available that allows users to chat in real time.
- Cuddling is another way of letting others know that you’re interested in knowing more about them. This feature is similar to virtual kisses that you’d find on most websites in this segment. Standard membership of this site would give users access to only the ‘cuddling’ feature.
- The website employs safety options that help in keeping scammers at bay. Besides, users can report another user for suspicious activity.
- Users can remain completely anonymous on the website. You neither have to give your real name to the website nor is it mandatory to deposit money for subscription using your real name (only your nick name would be enough).
- Support for Russian and Spanish languages.
Performing a Search
The search options available on DatingGentlemen.com don’t offer anything special to user. However, they’re certainly at par with some of the other sites in this segment of online dating. The results are precise and give users the option of finding a match based on various parameters. Some of these parameters are mentioned below:
- Looking for?
- Relationship status
- Availability to relocate
- User name
DatingGentlemen.com is certainly not the best websites out on the market if you’re looking to maintain a balance between costs and features. The website is certainly on the expensive side and offers nothing groundbreaking for all the money it charges from users. It is worth noting that the 3 month subscription plan that is priced at £129 can be regarded as one of the most expensive ones in the online dating industry.
Nevertheless, if you’re keen on joining a European dating site that boasts of bilingual support for Russian and Spanish, apart from English, this website wouldn’t disappoint you. You’d have access to all the essentials that would help in connecting with the right audience. Given the fact that the site has a largely restricted audience i.e. women under the age of 30 years old and men above the age of 35 years old, finding a match here is relatively easier.
The search options on this site work exactly as they’re supposed to. The results are precise and we got exactly what we were looking for. The only drawback of the site in terms of members is the amount of inactive and fake profiles that we came across. Given the fact that women don’t have to pay a penny to become a member of this site, you’d expect a lot of profiles of members who although joined the site, never bother to update or use it later.
Things are better for women who are seeking a wealthy companion. The number of older and wealthy men on this site makes it an ideal place for younger women. All in all, DatingGentlemen.com is a decent choice for those seeking an age gap relationship but aren’t looking for a companion who is significantly older or younger to them. In order words, this is a decent dating platform to men and women belonging to the middle – aged strata of the society.
