Dating for the Older Generation*

After watching some funny shows recently such as Jack Whitehall Travels with my Father and seeing his Fathers perspective on Jack still being single. It made me wonder how the older generation navigate dating nowadays if they think that we can't seem to find love easily and judge us for not being married by the time we're 29, then how on earth are they going to get on with senior dating sites?

Senior dating is something that we tend not to even think about let alone get involved with. I know I tend not want to know what people like my Nan are up too, not that she would go out dating, in her head she is still married so dating or getting a partner is not something she would do. But that isn't to say that others in her position or slightly younger are in the same mindset.

The one good thing for those that are looking to date of a more mature age is that there are dating sites to specific areas such as jersey dating and strathclyde dating sites and more. I guess it all depends on what it is you're looking for and as to whether you know how to use these sites or the internet at all. I don't mean to be single-minded or out of line here, I am just going off of my own experience, having to keep repeating the same steps over again, teaching my Nan how to use her Ipad is just one of those examples.

Here are some tips I have come up with to help the more mature dater out:
  • Your profile picture speaks a thousand words, believe it or not, we all judge someone by it. So be sure to get some decent photos done and don't over do it with makeup or silly photoshopped selfies. 
  • Write a killer profile, the most decent people out there actually read them. To be honest, be brief and don't go into all the morbid details of your past. 
  • Sometimes you may just become friends, this isn't a bad thing and you shouldn't be put off by it. This generally happens with all ages, though, I suspect it would be more common the older you get, just because we are more mature to actually see what we want and realise that we're more suited as friends. 
  • Always be upfront, this should be a given in any situation really. You're not going to get what you want out of any situation unless you're straight with the person you're dealing with in the first place.
  • Always take time before you answer to someone, never give out personal information such as your income, address or anything like that. Remember that online dating sites are still available to cybercriminals too.
  • When it's time to meet up, always do it somewhere you feel comfortable with. Best places are somewhere that have a lot of people around and usually during the day to start off with. Also, make sure at least one person knows where you're going and who you're meeting.
