Steps to finding a worthy other half when internet dating

So you're considering experiencing all that internet dating has to offer for over 50s and over 60s dating. Well you're in the right place and online dating has much to offer the mature dater of today. However to find another whom you are suited to can a little while, so here are 5 tips to help

Be open and ready to explore the Mature Dating website

The over 50s and over 60s dating scene is pretty wide and varied with a whole database of membership who you haven't met as yet, but who may be looking for the same things and experiences that you are. You should therefore be open, ready and willing to explore all our website has to offer. You should contact other members who may be looking for similar things, and not get too fixated on a pre-conceived idea of an exact match or a very specific idea of how relationships should work based on previous long term relationships.

Be honest about who you are and what you're looking for

Being a mature dater you may feel far more ready to be upfront about who you are and what you're looking for, which is great because it cuts past much of the bumf that other dating profiles suffer from. However, if you've recently experienced a messy divorce and just want companionship ,be honest about it. Undoubtedly there are many others who have found themselves in the same situation and this itself will be something that you have in common. In this instance however be sure not to dwell on your divorce or past relationship. Don't spend time speaking about it with a potential other or whilst on a date, this is a sure fire way to find first date failure.

Focus on fun

Senior dating can and should be fun! Whilst you probably know what you're looking for in terms of relationship seriousness, you should enjoy the experience. So don't take yourself too seriously and take the experience for what it is.

Create the perfect profile

Follow these tips and ensure that your profile is working for you, instead of putting potential dates off

  • 1. Be honest about who you are and avoid dating profile cliches like the plague.
  • 2. Use a recent, reasonable, yet relatively flattering pic for your profile photo.
  • 3. Rope friends in to help you 'sell yourself' and craft a pitch perfect profile that describes your best personality traits and intriguing interests.

Stay safe

Don't ever share any personal details before you have met the person numerous times (such as your address) and never share your bank details or other sensitive information. For your first few dates at least you should also be sure to meet in a public place and let your friends and/or family know of where you're going and when you should be back.
