Finding Members



It's easy to find other users of Over Fifties Friends who share your interests. Find other over 50s using our simple member search. Instructions below:




The orange "Search for Members" link at the top left corner of the site takes you to our advanced Member Search page. The same happens if you click the Find Friends link under "Friends" in the left menu .

Once you get to the Member Search page, make sure you scroll down a little, so you can see all of the search fields and the Search button. The search works in the following manner:
  • If you just click the Search button without filling in any of the fields, all members of the site will come up on the results pages.
  • The Username search field allows you to find a member if you are already aware of their username.
  • Put your post code in the Post code field and you can then select a distance from your house (from 10 to 100 or any) in the drop down menu underneath. This allows you to find members near you.
  • The rest of the fields in the Member Search are self-explanatory.
  • Once you have clicked on the Search button, you can choose to "Sort By" Location, Name, Date Registered and Last Online. Just use the links at the top of the Search Results page.


N.B. You can choose to use NONE of the fields, or just one, or even a combination of many fields. The more you use, the narrower your search results will be of course.
