Sometimes you don’t want to search a site full of younger people who mostly just seem to be looking for a flirt and a night out at the pub. If you’re looking for a date that might be a bit more sophisticated and with a person who isn’t necessarily just out of potty training, then datingagency.com could be the site for you.
Searching on datingagency.com is a simple affair (excuse the pun!). Simply choose your preferred age range, gender and location and it will present a decent number of matches. Profiles are a little slim, with basic information covered including interests, children, religion, habits and body types/dimensions, but you get a fairly decent, if a little bland, idea of the member you’re looking at. The site also tells you exactly how far away you are from a person you’ve searched for, without revealing a post code. This is a secure way of knowing that a date might not be far away but without your personal details being made public. You can upload photos from your computer, using a webcam or mobile phone, or via Facebook, though the image size is a little underwhelming at 500 KB per picture.
Some of the features on datingagency.com feel like fillers – who really wants to check astrology, for example? But the rest are found in almost any dating website. This can make datingagency.com feel a bit samey, but its unique focus on mature dating in the UK does add an element of interest for those looking for a mature date. Diaries are a nice addition as they mean you can share your day to day goings on with others or read about what they’ve been doing to get an idea of whether or not you might be a good match. Once you’ve upgraded you can also add more specific details to your account and the system allows you to search by its recommendation of who it feels might be a suitable match for you, though it would be good to have more control over this and provide more information to make for better matching.
Datingagency.com is a middle of the range site that offers little in the way of innovation but has a decent number of members and standard services. People who are particularly looking for a mature date (though it also offers a regular service) will likely have the most benefit from its specialisation in mature dating. It’s not the cheapest site around but it’s not incredibly expensive, either, particularly if you get a longer package deal. Its members seem engaged and involved, updating profiles and posting comments and discussions. It’s far from ‘blue rinse’ but could use one or two upgrades to make it something a bit more special.
