The language you used on your main page made me think the dating site was free. It is not until all profile details are complete that you suddenly find out it is at least £28 a month. As a nervous site user I immediately want to pull out.

Hello Ejane ... Silversurfers Dating is Free of charge to create yourself a profile, which is what the wording says. Then there are associated costs if you wish to pursue the extra benefits of joining - here is a link to the full range of options: I think you will find that there are charges associated with all dating sites. If you simply wish to be a members of our Silversurfers community, and not get involved in the dating aspect on offer, there is no charge associated with being a part of out community. Hope this clarifies 🙂

Hello Travelusa,

Here is a link to our Community Guides which should hopefully help you:

To upload your profile picture or to change it, just login to your Account, and then go to the section called 'About You' There is an option there to upload or change a picture of yourself.

Best wishes, Sally 🙂

If sacking Clarkson is the death of Top Gear, replacing him with Chris Evans is the final nail in the coffin.
