Online dating in your 40s can be somewhat terrifying.
You are just getting back into the dating game.
Perhaps you have had a divorce.
Maybe two divorces.
A friend suggests online dating and you begin to think and wonder.
There is a lot going through your mind.
You think about how you have been out of the dating scene for so long and how you don’t quite know what is expected of you.
You wonder if you are still attractive.
You are older after all and have been in the safety of long term relationships for a while.
It’s a good idea to not get carried away with your thoughts.
Although the dating scene has had some changes over the years, its’ basic tenets still persist.
Two individuals are looking for something and they are wondering if the other is the one who can offer it.
You need to figure out first and foremost what it is you want out of dating this time around.
A lot of 40+ year olds are so used to being in a relationship that they may unfortunately latch on to the first person that shows them interest.
This is where online dating may be to your advantage.
There are a plethora of prospective dates on an online dating site.
Your task is to be patient enough to get to know a few that show interest over a period of time and see if ultimately this is someone you want to meet in life.
No rush, no hurry.
Sounds easy enough, right?
