Guidelines for Seniors Who Want to Date Again

Where seniors meet seniors?

The fact is, these days more people meet online than at social events or even at work, and this is especially true for older people. A surprising percentage of boomers are looking for a new relationship and finding it online. I can vouch for that, it’s where my wife and I met six and a half years ago and it’s been a great move for us.

Seniors Meet Seniors Online Success Story.

I had come out of a 39-year marriage and had four children. Gemma was divorced 16 years ago and had two children. Of course, the “kids” were all grown up and had their own relationships and families. Two singles, free to find new loves and new adventures. I was 60 and had “run home to mom!”. It was one of my daughters who suggested that if I sat and watched TV night after night, I would soon grow old before my time.

Doing nothing was a temptation

After 40 years of “domestication” sitting still and letting the world go by was very tempting, but you know our generation is predicted to live long, maybe up to 100 and 40 being on the couch seems more like a prison sentence than ambition, so I subscribed to a dating site.

Write an honest profile

Considering I’d never done anything like this before I made a good decision I had a ‘allowance’ of 1000 characters to write my profile, I was going to use every single one of them and write a complete and honest profile. I laid it all out, who I am, how old I am, how I got to where I am today, what I like, what I don’t like, what I do for fun, what I’m looking for in a relationship, it’s all out in the open, completely honest.

Look for an honest profile

How can you tell you’re looking at an honest profile? Well, you can’t. Some people are just playing and there’s nothing wrong with that – that’s what they want from the site, different experiences, a bit of fun, but it wasn’t what I wanted. I was prepared to ‘kiss a few frogs’ before I found my sleeping beauty, but the careful sifting of the replies that arrived daily on my email account meant I didn’t have to.

One in a million

The site sent me a few matches and one match was amazing, she had worked just as hard as I had on her own profile. The site told me she was one in a million for me and so it turned out. We met and courted and two years later got engaged. We only got married two years ago, and as you can tell, it was the best move I could have made.

Goodbye to the quiet life – Hello Adventure

Now every day is a good day, we plan our holidays, work on our business together, on our home and enjoy a fantastic ‘extended family life’.

When Seniors Meet seniors and establish a good relationship, they bring something to their new relationship that they never had before – experience. Experience in making mistakes and determination not to make those mistakes again. You may have guessed that I highly recommend it, if you are old and considering late dating, don’t delay, there is a great relationship out there for you and all you have to do is reach for it and live life you are full again.
