Things to Know About Senior Online Dating

Remember when dating was meeting a friend of a friend for dinner and a movie? Now retiring Baby Boomers have super busy schedules and are socializing through tablet computers on the Internet. What is a senior interested in dating supposed to do?

Getting up to speed with online dating for seniors is a great start. The dating goals for the younger crowd are often about marriage and building a family. However, there are many seniors out there who have already raised families and have lost a spouse to one reason or another and now wish to meet someone. The goals of senior dating are often different than they are for younger people but it still works the same way online.

Online Dating Basics for Seniors

To be sure, dating on the Internet is much like dating in real life. You might have to look through dozens of profiles until the right one meets your eye. The difference is that you can do it from the comfort of your living room. Navigating the world of online dating can be intimidating at first, but it’s a lot easier than you think. With a few simple tips, you can be on your way to finding your soul mate in no time.

Choose a Good Senior Dating Website

Be sure to thoroughly investigate the dating website. Make sure that it is for seniors. Read the fine print. The general rule of getting what one pays for follows here too. Subscription-based sites generally offer better service and results than the free dating sites. Check out the payment and refund policies. Do not commit for long term services. Most monthly subscription websites let customers terminate service at any time with the end date being the last day of the monthly service period based on the date one signed up.

About Your Profile

Your profile should be a small window into your lifestyle and personality. Think of it as an advertisement that describes who you are and what you are looking for. Make it interesting and unique. Online users can’t see how vibrant and special you are in person, so it’s important to use language that can carry that message across text. Choose recent pictures that are flattering but accurate. The ultimate goal of online dating is meeting in person, so it’s important to make your profile as honest as possible without giving away sensitive information.

Chatting Online

Online relationships start with private messages that you send or receive. If you spot a profile that sparks your interest, send over a message to see if you can establish a connection. Don’t use short or ambiguous phrases. Mention what aspect of the profile you found interesting and relate it to your own experiences. Keep in mind that most people send out and receive many messages on a regular basis before they find someone they want to meet in person. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t find success immediately.

Online Dating Safety

Senior generations grew up in a more trusting environment and have difficulty navigating risky situations online. Keep in mind that the Internet is global and that the world can be dangerous at times in different places. There are bad neighborhoods that are avoided in real life, and there are people who lie. Keep that in mind and steer away from risky neighborhoods (websites) on the Internet and do not believe every claim. If it sounds too good to be true, it really is just that. Avoid meeting in private. Go to a public place a distance away from home and bring a friend. Always have an exit strategy, and do not feel obligated under any old-fashioned social protocols.

Finally, when building an online profile, be truthful. Do not pretend to be something false. Otherwise it brings disappointments with the type of dates the profile attracts. If one's lifestyle is more sedentary than active, let it be known. It applies equally if one's life is more active than sedentary. Not telling the truth becomes discouraging in that potential dates will not be what is sought. If the future possibility of remarrying is on the table or out of the question, tell the truth about that too.
