How To: Use Your Search Filters

We’re back with another serving of our ‘How To:’ guide to dating on Just Singles. This time, we thought we’d show you how to make the most of your time with us by using filters… After all, we know you’re busy!

If you’re already using your filters, that’s great – we love you for it! If not? Don’t worry, we’re going to show you why and how you should be using them.

What are Search Filters & Inbox Filters ?

Our search filters are settings that make it easier and quicker for you to find the exact type of person you’re looking for. As long as whoever you’re searching for has filled out their Interests (which you should do too by the way), you’ll be able to find them.

Only want to see people with a photo? You got it! Want a blonde, with a degree and an interest in music? Voilà!

Inbox Filters can stop you getting messages from people who you’ve told us you won’t be interested in hearing from right now. Living 100 miles away a no-no for you? No problem, we’ll send them a polite message to let them know.

How do I use them?

Search filters are found on the top and left-hand side of the search page. You’ve probably already found that you can select the age range and location range at the top of the screen. More in-depth filters are on the left-hand side – just click ‘Add filter’ and you’ll be on your way. Simply use the tickboxes to select features you’d like, and the X to remove them if you made a mistake.

Inbox filters can be found under Account and then Filtering. All you have to do is click ‘Enable’, select your criteria and press save. It’s as easy as that!

Don’t worry if you change your mind or you want to broaden your horizons, you can always change them.


There you have it, it’s as simple as that! If you just can’t wait to start using your new-found knowledge, simply log in and follow the steps above. You’ll find your perfect match in no time!

If you need any help setting up your filters, or have any other topics you’d like us to cover in our How To: series, leave a comment below. Alternatively you can find us on Facebook here and on Twitter here – we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have!

Until next time,

      Hi Jackie
      Is this for your Just Senior Singles account? If so, the email address you used to comment on the blog should be the correct one and should be working. We’d suggest having another go, making sure that your email address is spelt correctly, with no spaces/extra punctuation.
      If not, it might be worth getting in touch with our Customer Care team, who can help you privately and in more detail.
      Hope this helps!
