That's why it is so vital to start looking in the right place.
For singles who are that bit older, dating sites like Elite Singles are ideal: we offer a a safe, supportive service for all of our members where we manually check all new profiles (and hide the inactive ones) to ensure that you only receive match suggestions from genuine users.
Age is no barrier to romance, a fulfilling love-life and lasting companionship. Having already achieved a lot in life, you have a clearer idea of what's important.
This confidence which comes from knowing yourself thus enables you to be more discerning when dating.
As Janet Blair, renowned author of Sam Owen says this older dating confidence ‘helps us to make better decisions, experience fewer negative emotions [and] feel more optimistic about the world...
It also means we are better at sustaining other close relationships, [which are] integral to..happiness, and even our longevity as research shows people who are better connected live on average 3.7 years longer.’' Sounds appealing, doesn't it? Lisa Copeland is a Huffington Post author and an expert in dating over 50. All her quotes are from an exclusive 2013 interview with Elite Singles.
Indeed, many mature singles have already had this experience and so are looking for something new.
