The experienced older lady has always been an enticing option for any fun loving British guy. Cougar & MILF dating sites are everywhere now, so we decided to add British Matures to our review list to help you lads choose the most suitable option for your hook up needs...
BritishMatures.co.uk - Fake or Real?
The landing page for BritishMatures.co.uk is short and simple, showing a selection of profile pictures and a large sign up form which is relatively quick to complete. The only other notable item outside the members' area is the link to site costs, which caught our reviewers' eye immediately, simply because most hook up dating sites don't provide upgrade costs until after you've taken the time to join.
If you're used to the casual dating scene you won't be surprised to see that you have to confirm your email after joining (an attempt to stop non-genuine registrations) and after doing so, you're passed into the main site members' area. The main navigation options are 'Dashboard', 'Members', 'Search', 'Visitors' and 'Inbox', all simple and to the point.
Is BritishMatures.co.uk free to use?
You get to send one message for free when you join. After that, there is a credit system in place on this mature hookup site, allowing you to 'pay as you go' rather than committing to a duration such as a one month or three month membership. This effectively means you pay for the amount of messages you send as well as other feature upgrades, such as highlighting your profile at the top of any searches performed by the older single MILFs and cougars that sign up looking for young studs and cubs.
A lot of the single women on the site don't have images – in fact when our review team checked the members panel to look through a large selection of horny single women we were surprised to see so many blank profiles. Also, in this same area, we noticed that male profiles were showing here in the instances when we joined as a man looking for a woman. Such issues definitely harm the user experience. When blank profiles and incorrect results appear (issues that the BritishMatures system should be resolving to make sure it only renders relevant results first) it doesn't bode well for a site that proudly states on it's home page that it only contains “carefully handpicked profiles”. It's not the end of the world of course, but BritishMatures.co.uk need to look at such glitches, or perhaps they need to work harder to have their members add images to their profiles. The dating game is all about an interesting profile “shop window”, without this why would you bother contacting anyone for some naughty fun?
The only other frustration we had with BritishMatures.co.uk during our reviews was the fact that a lot of the girls on the site were in their 20s. Our searches brought up a large number of results that you would never class as mature, MILF or cougar.
Our conlusion: Is BritishMatures.co.uk an alternative to Cougarlife.com and Cougars69.com?
The problems we discovered while carrying out our review of BritishMatures.co.uk weren't the worst issues we've seen by any means, but if BritishMatures.co.uk is looking to lead this niche and wants to compete with Cougars69 or Cougarlife, it needs to resolve them. It wasn't as if they only happened from when we tested far away from cities – these glitches happened when we performed reviews in both Edinburgh and London. Nevertheless, there was enough here to give us hope – the credit system is a far more modern way of paying on a cougar site than you'll see elsewhere.
In our opinion as dating experts, we believe the monthly subscription model is outdated and we were pleased to see British Matures allowing its MILFs and younger guys to 'pay as they play'. We also liked the emphasis on discreet billing (so your credit card doesn't show any surprises) and the verified profile option that let's other people see you are a genuine member and have been officially checked – a great way to stop scammers and time wasters.
Overall, if you're a guy that's into more experienced ladies, you'll find this site of interest. The free trial let's you search first and the credit system makes sure you keep costs down as you try it out. It's not perfect by any means, but it's niche enough to be worth a try.
Remember you horny young studs, if you want to boost your chances of regular cougar encounters then it's always best to try a few MILF hook up websites simultaneously. There are a lot of great cougar search options out there and multiple memberships means multiple choice. Check out our list of reviews and remember...play safe!
