Real or Fake? promises its users to connect them with other people over 50 looking for love. As the site advertises some user profiles on their homepage, it seems trustworthy. However, we have discovered after some digging that the site doesn’t really provide what it promises. Namely, the biggest problem with this site is the fact that there are many fake profiles on it. These profiles will message all new users and entice them to purchase a membership. However, the people behind them are paid animators who don’t have any intention to actually go on a date with paying members. That is to say – Fiftiesconnect is a fake dating site and we can not recommend it to anyone who wants to find someone to go on an actual date with.

Free vs Paid

The site boasts on its free registration and search options. However, these are the only features you will be able to use if you don’t give the site money. In other words – you will not be able to talk to anyone unless you pay. You will get notifications when someone messages you, but will not be able to read the message or reply. The same goes for writing and reading dating diaries, which can be an interesting feature. Another feature the site advertises is checking and verifying all member profiles, which is misleading since the site is full of fake profiles. Lastly, Fiftiesconnect is transparent about sharing user bases with a network comprising of other dating sites. In other words, your profile will be visible to users on those different sites, which will give them more credibility. This would be a privacy concern even if the site was more credible, let alone when you can say it is fake with certainty.
