1. Use your profile to talk about the present day, not the past
Chances are, you’ve loved and learned a lot in your life and it’s natural to hold onto some of the memories or people who are near and dear to you. Many mature online daters have a difficult time letting go of the past and constantly mentioning the way things used to be in their online dating profiles. However, this is a fresh start for you, and online dating is paving the way to an exciting future! No, it might not be the same as things were before…but you never know, things could be better!
2. Date outside of your box!
Most mature daters know what they are looking for in a date, from the physical to personality traits. But hey, you only live once, right? You never know what or who you’re missing until you try! Take a chance and write back someone whom you might have otherwise looked over. Agree to meet a date for coffee even though you aren’t sure you have anything in common. Let online dating surprise you, don’t over-think dating over 50 or make it more difficult than it needs be!
3. Don’t forget to have fun.
At it’s core, mature online dating in South Africa should be fun. It’s a chance for you to connect with like minded individuals for fun, activities, dates and hopefully, LOVE. But there shouldn’t be any pressure on you to find a match, sometimes these things take time. Don’t get discouraged if you send an email to someone interesting and they don’t write back, and don’t feel like giving up after just one bad date. Removing the pressure from dating makes it fun again, and the great thing about online dating is that there is always someone waiting to meet you, so don’t get discouraged.
4. Say YES!
Along the same lines of dating outside of your box, is the importance of saying yes! Yes, you’d love to meet for a glass of wine and watch a jazz band perform, or yes, a Saturday afternoon coffee date sounds great! Don’t over think things or you might psych yourself out. If you feel safe, and are at least 5% interested in the other person, your answer should always, always, always be YES!
5. Stay Safe!
Safety should always be your number one priority. While we definitely encourage you to say “yes” to date invitations, we also encourage you to let a trusted friend or family member know where you are going to be, who you are going to be with and when to expect you back. Many mature daters feel like they don’t need to be babysat, and feel confident that they can take care of themselves. But please, don’t skip this step. Leave your daughter a voicemail with all of the info and everyone will relax a little easier.
