Baby boomers are considered the generation of men and women born between the mid-1940s through the mid-1960s. If you fall into this age bracket, you might want to try to find other like-minded singles who understand you, your likes and dislikes, and your point-of-view on life. Enter the dating site, BabyBoomerPeopleMeet. This site is one that supposedly caters to this specific age range and makes it easier to find the partner of your dreams. While this might seem like a baby boomer’s answer to their dating woes, I’ve been on enough dating sites to see why BabyBoomerPeopleMeet.com isn’t going to live up to what it promises.
My Review Of Baby Boomer People Meet – Full Details Below
BabyBoomerPeopleMeet.com is just like most other dating sites. It is completely free to join and create a profile, but if you want to be able to contact any other members, you will have to pay for a subscription. Sending and reading received messages will cost you and the price will vary by length of subscription. The breakdown on cost is as follows:
- One-month subscription-$14.99
- Three-month subscription-$35.97
- Six-month subscription-$62.94
Auto Renewal Per Usual
The subscription rates are all automatically renewed, so if you don’t remember to cancel before your subscription is over, you will be automatically charged for another equivalent subscription period.
You Must Agree To The Terms
When you join BabyBoomerPeopleMeet.com, you agree to all their terms even if you did not read them. That is why I strongly suggest that you do because those terms are full of information that will be of interest to you. If you join Baby Boomer People Meet, you’ll see in their terms that they are a site that will collect your personal data. They will then take this personal data and connect your profile across all the other dating sites that they are affiliated with.
Your Data Is No Longer Yours
Why is this a big deal? Well first, dating site parent companies usually own a wide variety of dating sites catering to people in different countries, niches, or kinks. While you may be interested in other baby boomers for dating, you might not be interested in having your profile seen on Tinder, a notorious hookup app, or on sites in other countries you’ll never visit. You won’t have to worry about managing your profile on all these other sites, though, as the company behind BabyBoomerPeopleMeet.com assumes your identity and pretends to be you. Once you’ve joined, they essentially own your information and can distribute it how they see fit.
No Profiles Will Be Removed
Wanna hear something funny, if you decide that you don’t like BabyBoomerPeopleMeet.com, you won’t even really be able to remove your profile completely, as the parent company still owns your pictures and information and can keep your profile up on their site as long as they like.
Dating sites do this to make their site seem full of active members and busier than they really are. Other members will be able to view you, but they cannot send you messages. I don’t know that I trust a site that won’t allow me to ever leave, especially if they are also able to share my information around to other sites.
Conclusion: Meh, Not Impressed w/ BabyBoomer People Meet
BabyBoomerPeopleMeet.com was created to help those in a certain age range to find friendship and love, but they use shady tactics to do so. Allowing someone to join under the guise of the site being free is trickery, but then keeping any information that someone enters into the system as their own is even worse.
The final straw is that BabyBoomerPeopleMeet.com is using this information to make their sites seem fun and full of members while spreading your profile around the world on their other sites that you might not want to be affiliated with. If you’re looking for real dates, BabyBoomerPeopleMeet.com is probably a site you want to avoid joining.
Before I go, I’ll have you know that there are lots of other “People Meet” dating sites that you need to know about. Yes, they practice the same tactics. Here’s a rundown of the sites I suggest avoiding…
