We realized immediately that our little trial of online dating for seniors was something that resonated with people all over the world, and that we needed to go ahead and build something that would help us touch the lives of older adults everywhere.
Deep down, you know it’s not too late—never too late—to find love.
Senior dating is a hot commodity, with many seniors looking for dating advice in the new millennia.
For some, whether internet savvy or not, the idea of beginning a new relationship through a senior dating site is completely uncharted territory.
There can be many natural concerns to overcome, especially if you find yourself single again after the death of a spouse or divorce later in life.
It must come from the heart Be that way during your first date right until your last and see what a difference it will make to you, your date's and your life Do not expect your prospect to be available for a date at short notice Ask a few days in advance of the proposed date Set a meeting time and if possible an ending time If the person cannot or will not be available for a date at the second request – they are not interested Don’t push the issue.
Guys, be prepared to pay for the date (especially the first one) Subsequent ones can be worked out in due course when you know a bit more about each other Never spring it on her to 'cough up' If you pay, understand that there must be no strings attached Girls, be considerate - offer to pay half OR to buy the drinks or something to show that you are not a freeloader.
You probably know about the big online dating sites.
I started this site as a resource for the many older women and men who are seeking love and companionship in their golden years.
Aim to be even handed in your evaluation of your past and present.
Sure it hurts, but by now, you have tools to cope and the ability and intelligence to acquire new skills which will allow you to safely take greater risks.
If your parent is recently divorced or widowed remind them (as they may have frequently reminded you) that it’s not wise to jump into a relationship too quickly.
