can’t imagine being single again, mostly because Warren has my whole
heart, but also because I’m older (and a lot wiser!) than I was when
we first met. I
have spoken before about how I met Warren, and I feel very lucky to
have been fortunate to fall in love over a pint. It sums us up
really, but it does leave me still wondering what may or may not have
happened had we met ten years later.
The modern dating
scene terrifies me, and I only hear it from my gorgeous single
friends. When I was younger there wasn’t really a ‘scene’, not that I
remember anyway… But back then there wasn’t all the technology
we have around
us today, from apps to speed dating, it’s definitely a bonus to have
different ways to connect with your future partner.
think the dating scene has evolved dramatically, you just need to
look at this dating site
to see how times have changed. But what does it mean for those that
have skipped this evolving scene, the generations before all these
advancements, do they have the options our younger counterparts
Well, the answer is yes. With sites like
Older-Dating.com on the
scene it means the world of dating is truly open to anyone, no matter
how old they may be. This means that if you’re yet to find that
special person in your life, there are ways to narrow it down through
such platforms and potentially fall head over heels in love.
I think it’s really
important to remember that dating isn’t just for young people, that
anyone over the age of 40 is still important and relevant when
it comes to cupid. the sites are also easy to use and it can make the
daunting concept of dating easier (and even fun!), because it’s all
about finding your perfect match! It’s also a safer option compared
to meeting randomly on the internet, but then again, I’ve known this
to work also!
6 Reasons Older
Online Dating Really Works…
1. You’re older, but
As I’ve said already,
I do feel a lot older now I’m 36. However, I’m also less naive and
less willing to waste time and energy in areas that bring me down. So
if I was dating in today’s scene, then I think I’d be very upfront
and honest about my personal needs. I think this ‘growing up’ can
offer a different angle on dating, and you’re less likely to get your
2. You know what you
Similarly to number 1
on the list, as you grow older you really do have a sense of what you
want and need in your life. This leaves little room for any time
wasters or one night stands (unless that’s your thang!)…
3. It’s Safer.
If you use a
reputable site, your details are safe and you can get to know
potential love interests online before you meet up.
4. It’s less
Back in my day I
remember the ‘cattle market’ of people in the clubs, the men on one
side, the women on the other. I imagine this still happens, but with
the internet this is turned on its head because you only find matches
with people who are genuinely intersted in you and the things you’re
interested in. Whittling it down occurs pretty early on and if you’re
interested in someone online it generally doesn’t involve too much
sambuca and certainly no competitive dancing. I’m relieved and I’m
5. You can take your
In real life there’s
sometimes a rush to get things going, lots of dates and conversation
often followed by the blow that things aren’t what both people
thought they were. In the online world you can iron out these issues
before the real-life dating begins!
6. you can truly be
When you meet in the
big old world, it can be so daunting we often lose ourselves in the
midst of conversation (and sometimes beer!). However, with online
dating you can truly be you without the fear or social pressures
experienced in social situations.
I think, regardless
of age, dating as a whole can be a minefield. You’re literally
looking for that one person who ‘gets’ you, someone you can perhaps
see yourself growing old with. You are looking for someone to make
you laugh, comfort you and have fun with, and that’s a lot to find in
one other human being…
But when it happens,
well then there’s no looking back.
