In our WantMatures review, you’ll see a site that markets itself as the website that makes it simple and easy to find older women to chat with and date. It entices members to create an account by suggesting they’ll be “shocked” by the sheer number of singles in their area waiting to speak to them on the website. The home page also attracts potential members in by boasting of several chat rooms and a platform that’s conducive to meeting a partner quickly and easily.
It all sounds fantastic – and the website itself looks very modern. However, the sad truth is: there are lots of online dating websites that tempt guys into purchasing premium memberships with promises they can’t deliver on only to deliver a terrible experience after they’ve paid. This is particularly common in the mature dating niche. That’s why I was keen to review Want Matures and give you the lowdown on the experience and let you know if it’s worth the money.
The verdict on WantMatures was as clear as day. Read on to discover what we thought of the site.
Below is a basic summary of WantMatures, for those who are in a hurry. We rank the sites for each of the most important aspects of online dating. For context, I have compared it to AFF, which we rated as one of the best hookup websites on the web today.
Our team rates each site objectively based on many hours of independent research, the features each site offers, and how it compares with other sites. The ratings are the opinion of our editors and their extensive experience.

Will the time and money spent using this site pay off for an average person based on the opinions and experience of our editors.
We’re sad to say that in our opinion, Want Matures is going to be a major waste of time for most guys. We spent weeks and weeks testing it out with very little to show for it. Compared to other options out there like AFF, where we’ve consistently seen guys do well, this site was pretty bad. We recommend that every guy skip this site completely, especially if they want more mature women, in favor of more proven options.
There were warning sirens going off in my head within the first few minutes of testing Want Matures. As soon as my blank profile was created with no photos and no bio, I began to receive several messages from female accounts. The longer I stayed logged in, the more I’d receive. I couldn’t read them though, because you have to pay for a premium membership in order to read or reply to messages.
So, on a mission to confirm my suspicions about this website, I went ahead and bought a one-week membership. Here are the main aspects of this website you need to know about.
The first thing I noticed was that this site had the exact same design as MeetWild.com and GetNaughty.com – two low-quality websites I had reviewed in the past. These two websites even shared the same female profiles. Want Matures had a different selection of women (mostly older women), but everything else about the design of the website was the same.
I replied to all of the accounts which had messaged my blank profile. These seemed like automated messages from bots. After all, what woman would start chatting with a line like this?
So, I reached out to cold-message another 50 women on top of that. I received 0 replies. This was the same result as the sister websites – MeetWild and GetNaughty. However, a major difference was that I did get cold-messaged by several accounts with actual humans behind them.
These were blank profiles with no pictures. They would all immediately ask me to send my phone number so we could chat via text. When I asked for their number, they insisted that I sent mine.
My phone number would most probably have been added to a million-and-one marketing lists if I’d handed it over. So of course, I didn’t give them anything.
Of course, the main frustration is that I found 0 real women to have a real conversation with. You’ll get plenty of automated notifications suggesting that there are women waiting for you on this website. Frequently, I was alerted about a woman viewing my profile, “liking” or “favoriting” me. But this never led to a message. I suspect these notifications are automated too.
This site clearly advertises “tons of different chat rooms” on its home page, yet there are no chat rooms anywhere to be seen. Perhaps this is an old feature? Either that or it’s an outright lie.
It’s fair to say that WantMatures.com is one of the worst online dating website I have tested. There is no reason to spend a second of your time or a penny of your money on this website. If you’re looking to meet and date older women, I’d advise you to stay away from Want Matures and try out AFF instead.
AFF has one of the largest global user bases in the world, including a thriving population of older female users. AFF is marketed to singles looking for one-night stands and casual relationships. So don’t be surprised if you connect with several women who want to meet and get down to business quickly. It’s the most effective website we’ve tested when it comes to arranging speedy and hassle-free hookups.
Better yet, it’s currently offering a free trial to new users. That means there’s no better time to see what all the fuss is about.
We try to summarise the pros and cons of every website we review, but it was tough to list any positives for Want Matures. It is truly garbage.
You can add photos or videos to your Want Matures profile, plus you’re given 140 characters to add to a status. On top of that, you can add more information by answering multiple-choice questions about your demographic and appearance. If a member hasn’t answered one of these questions, you can request they do so.
There are few female profiles with more than one photo. Most of them have the same generic line in their bio stating what type of man they’re looking for. It states an age range and a home city.
Wantmatures.com is well-designed. The main dashboard is dominated by large pictures of women you might want to speak to. The chat button, which appears on the home page and on each individual profile, triggers a small chat box to pop up in the bottom-right corner of the screen. You can scroll through all your previous chats in this pop-up box too.
Notifications appear in the top right corner. It’s really easy to use and navigate this website. Perhaps other more worthwhile sites should consider using the same design.
When you register a free account, you’ll inevitably be flooded with messages. However, you won’t be able to read them or reply to them. This privilege is only available once you purchase a premium account. Even worse, the messages sent to you will disappear within an hour if you have a free account. The website makes it easy to send messages to other profiles, but the problem is: I doubt I was talking to real women.
With a free membership, you can view other profiles. You’ll also be spammed with messages that you’re unable to read. That’s it.
You’ll encounter a few small text-only adverts for alternate online dating websites. They tell you a specific number of women are “waiting for you,” which is of course untrue. The third-party websites being advertised are designed exactly the same as WantMatures.com. There must be a whole network of websites owned by the same company, and I’d bet there are no women looking for love on any of them.
You can buy a premium membership for one day, one week, one month or three months. You’ll pay less per day if you choose a longer membership.
Here’s how much you’ll pay for each of them.
One day: $0.99
One week: $7.00 ($1 a day)
One month: $28.80 ($0.96 a day)
Three months: $48.60 ($0.54 a day)
You can also buy an add-on pack for an extra $0.95 per day. This includes HTTPS encryption, incognito browsing, read receipts and auto history cleaning. You’ll also supposedly appear higher in other users’ inboxes and in their search results when you buy this.
WantMatures isn’t a tough site to figure out. But if you need some quick questions and answers, here are a few:
WantMatures.com looks like your typucal dating site for meeting older women. However, we found exactly ZERO legit women to talk to on this site.
WantMatures is owned and operated by Northlock Holdings Ltd. They also own several low-quality sites with the exact same features.
You can call Want Matures at +18008485413 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
While WantMatures is a real site you can visit and use. However, it’s not a real dating site because it’s impossible to contact anyone here.
No, I found no women to speak to at all, which makes me think WantMatures is not legit.
We are very suspicious of Want Matures. Warn your friends about this site now. This website makes huge promises on its home page, sends fake messages and entices you to pay to read them. It’s only when you pay and read them that you realize this website has no women looking for love. The only accounts you’ll converse with are blank profiles asking for your phone number. Avoid this website at all costs!
No, WantMatures.com doesn’t seem the least bit safe.
