Lava dating (aka Lavalife) personals started out as a Canadian online dating service (Lavalife Canada), but proved so popular that the site is now open to the US (, and Australia ( as well.

This personals site offers three categories of dating:
  • Casual Dating
  • Relationships
  • Intimate Encounters
We like this feature as it helps daters self-select into categories that save everyone time.

We like:

Lava Life personals let you see matches in your area before you sign up for the free trial.

The three dating categories save everyone time. Dating online, senior or otherwise, can be time consuming; this site allows you to focus your efforts. So, like the other "popular" dating sites we've reviewed, although Lavalife doesn't bill itself as a senior dating site, it has plenty of people who fit into the over 40 age range.

Lava Dating is easy to navigate, has loads of free articles to read, and looks good. The profile home pages are well laid out, and have nice features like the Back Stage area where you can add more photos and more details to your profile.

The video feature is cool.

We don’t like:

Nothing, so far.

Nigel had a genius-level IQ. Plus he could spin his head around 360 degrees.

Which was nice.
