For one thing,
online dating is so discrete that no one in your offline circle
of friends or aquantances will even know unless you tell them --
and don't forget that nowadays online dating is practically the
norm for meeting new people so no one is likely to be surprised
that you are getting into it.
When it comes
to the people you meet online they are going to be in the same age
group as you. They may well have children, or an ex, or 'baggage'
as a personal history is sometimes labelled. How could one get to
50 plus and not have a life full of experiences? No one is going
to expect anything else.
about the signs of ageing either, the people you meet are all going
to be in the same boat. On a positive note being in your fifties
is actually still pretty young and people nowadays don't seem to
look as mature as they used to in our parents or grand parents day.
Why this is I don't know. Better nutrition, better health care,
a more youthful outlook on life -- I don't know, but it certainly
seems to be true whatever the reason.
will want to present yourself in the most favourable way to your
new friends online. Please do so, but don't stretch the truth too
much. Use a current and up-to-date photo and don't lie about your
weight, for example. You need to be honest and comfortable with
yourself to get the most out of meeting other singles of the 50
plus age group. Although not aimed specifically at singles over
50, there is some useful advice on contacting people online for
the first time here: Contact
