If you are someone who is a member of the LGBTQ+ community, and you have an affinity for older, more mature men, you are likely wondering - “How do I get in contact with hot, older guys? Where do I meet them? Which website or app is the best?” and we are here to give you answers to your questions.
The website that we are going to explore is called Silverdaddies. On their “about this website” secton, the site claims that they are a site for meeting men. Specifically – older mature men a.k.a. silver foxes; often referred to in the gay community as daddies and silver daddies. Of course, it also works if you are an older gay, bi or curious man looking for somebody younger.
It was made by a Danish man named Dennis back in 2002 and ever since then – the website has been up and running. Right upon entering the site, we can see that the website looks like “old internet”. In the about this website section, Dennis goes on to explain how he wanted to combine his love for mature men and making new connections brought him to make the website. Honestly, it’s kind of obvious that this guy doesn’t have a team of people who are constantly working on the website – but not in a bad way. This is obviously a meeting site with a very specific purpose and crowd that it serves to. At the time of writing this, Silverdaddies says that it has 127205 profiles. This website has an app version too, however, it’s just available for iOs and it’s not rated as well. Users of the app say that it lacks functionality and needs some more work done on it.

This website, like many other dating and hook-up websites, has a free version and a paid version. Personally, I thought that it was very cute and honest that the creator of the website says this in the about this website section: “The site isn't intended to make me rich. The basic features (galleries, profile creation, profile searching) will always be FREE!”. Keep in mind, this website has adult content floating around at all times, so this definitely isn’t a website that you want to open at work. Adult content, as well as personal ads are allowed, and the personal ads interchange quite often per day. There is a “light” version of the website that doesn’t show the Silverdaddies logo or explicit pictures. However, this is a feature reserved for paying members. A free member can chat with other members, browse galleries and profiles. You can send messages but you are limited with how many you can send. The premium features that the website offers are: access to a list of profiles who have visited your profile, the possibility of having “favorite profiles”, seeing when your favorite profiles were last online, the possibility of choosing who can contact you (meaning that their profile must meet your criteria in order for them to contact you), no limit on sending messages, access to profile galleries, the option to block messages from specific users, you are able to see if you have been in contact with a user right when you view his profile, access to profile videos and the possibility of keeping private notes about profiles.
Cost and prices
Silverdaddies offers the user a few options when it comes to payment and subscriptions. There is no test or trail period, and there is no “1 month” option. You can purchase the premium membership by credit card, debit card, or sending cash directly to the creator of the website. You can pay in US dollars or in euros. A three month subscription costs $15 or 14 euros, making it $5 per month. A six month subscription costs $30 dollars or 28 euros, a nine month subscription costs $40 dollars or 37 euros and a yearlong subscription costs $50 or 45 euros. The subscription basically costs about 4-5 dollars per month, no matter which subscription you choose. Payments via debit or credit cards are one time payments, since the website doesn’t use “recurring payments”. As mentioned previously, you can also send cash by mail – however, that comes with its own risks. Even when paying in cash, the “minimum” subscription is the three month subscription
This hook-up and meeting website has their own porn site. It’s found under silverdaddies-videos dot com. You can also find links to other paid and free websites who have explicit videos and pictures of more mature men. The functionality is a bit dated, and the videos are usually not the greatest quality. However, it’s free, it’s categorized by category of porn, and there is a star rating system in place. You need to log in in order to leave a rating.
If you are someone who doesn’t mind the retro look of the website, and you are into age gap relationships or hook ups, then you should definitely give Silverdaddies a try. It’s very obvious that this website is made with a pure love for older men and connection. There is definitely a sense of community on this website, and with the price of being ~$5 per month – it’s really not expensive.
