Welcome to the world of internet dating in your 50s. It’s a minefield – never boring, often surprising, but you need to keep your wits about you.
By 50-plus you’ll be a grown-up with a loyal circle of friends and http://cialisfrance24.com family, fulfilling work/life projects and a sense of who you really are in the world.
You’ll know your romantic/sexual tastes. You’re not desperate about being single. You’d like more intimacy, but not at any price.
However, in dating terms, you’re a child.
The adoption of technology has changed the way we connect and converse with others and dating is no exception.
There are hundreds of online dating sites from which to choose (if you’re bookish, political, religious, a divorced parent . . . you name it, there’s one for you). Not to mention all the new dating apps, such as Tinder and Happn (where you swipe through a sea of faces on your smartphone).
After a long innings of career, family and responsibilities people often get depressed when they are alone. No one to talk, share laughter, or share feelings of compassion. No wonder the internet has become an effective matchmaker to find someone to spend some good time with. It is particularly good for anyone single/separated or divorced who are geographically isolated as it can open up opportunities to meet people living in or near your community. It’s a tool that can work if you have hours to waste whilst browsing and trying to figure out who is fake and who is real.
Take your time, pick sites that have a good reputation and be very aware that not everyone is looking for a relationship but trying to profit from vulnerable, lonely people who have their guard down.
