Dating Dos and Don’ts: More Mature Singles Are Online
It seems that times are changing. The new place to find a date for mature singles is online. Maybe it’s because mature singles are so busy and they don’t have time to look for traditional dating experiences. Maybe it’s an easier way to meet people. I’m not sure what the trend it; but it’s confirmed. Online dating sites are the place to be if you’re a mature single looking for a date.
There are many different sites you can choose from, such as Match.com or eHarmony.com. These sites are designed to help out with more mature users and they are very user friendly. If you’re a mature single looking for a date you might just find a fabulous man on one of these sites.
More adults over 60 are looking for and finding love online, and that is changing how online dating sites are approaching the mature romance seeker. Sites such as Match.com and eHarmony.com welcome older users and ourtime.com is expressly for singles over age 50.
As many older users of the site Match.com answered when surveyed, singles over 60 are the least likely to report that they find loneliness to be stressful and the most likely to say they are “very happy.” After years of experience in and out of romantic relationships, they are more able to gauge what they are looking for in a relationship. They know their deal breakers and desired qualities especially as compared to younger people who haven’t figured those things out yet. Mature singles aren’t looking to compromise either, with only one in five willing to date someone they weren’t physically attracted to versus 41 percent of younger people.
Is online dating a sure thing? Of course not, as social research has explained it has its positives and negatives. You might start to think that everyone begins to look the same, or that your profile isn’t generating any interest. Experts advise to let a little more of who you are be the focus and less of a laundry list of likes/dislikes or vital statistics. Think of who you are when you are the most fun or the most interesting, and make sure that you look for someone who will appreciate the things you enjoy the most.
More mature singles may actually be better suited to online dating because they tend to be more honest about who they are and what they are looking for. Researchers at Bowling Green University explain that older singles are saying, “Please don’t waste my time” or “I don’t want to play games.”
