The saying goes that with age comes experience, whilst that may well be true the fact remains that dating seems to be a whole different ball game as you get older. Whilst you may have a clearer view of what you are looking for in terms of a relationship you may also have other things to take into consideration eg. children, family or work commitments. I know that a lot of people find that it’s not so easy to get out and meet people of the same age etc. You may also find that within your circle of friends many of them are married or in a relationship and you feel like your starting all over again.
Safety is of course very important, never publicise any personal details on your profile eg- phone number or home address and when meeting up on a date always ensure that someone knows where you are and who you are with. My friends love a little update when I’m out, so they can keep up with the gossip! All sites will have a policy that details how to report/block anyone that you don’t feel comfortable about.
Online dating can be a great way of building up confidence and getting back in the swing of getting to know new people again. It allows you the chance to chat to others and can put you in touch with people who share the same interests as you. You may find you make some good friends along the way. I think it’s important to try and have fun, enjoy meeting new people and see where that takes you. Hopefully you’ll have a few giggles and good times, I’ve certainly got a few stories to tell!
Remember not every one will get along with each other, such is life. Try not to take it personally if things don’t go quite as you thought they would. You are after all meeting up with a stranger and bound to be nervous it’s only natural. If you can relax and enjoy yourself then hopefully the big wide world of dating can be an enjoyable experience, however old you are.
