The truth is that with people living longer and divorce numbers rising, more people are returning to the dating game than ever. And this new breed of baby boomer daters is finding that the rules have changed for them.
Dating for those that are back in ‘the game’ has become more complicated. Not only do you have to worry about online safety, but you also have to learn about how to use the online dating systems that are now the hottest place to meet someone new.
It’s a whole different scene.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun doing it. Daters that are just coming back to the problem of finding a new date need to keep these things in mind:
- If you don’t meet a person in person, they might not be who they say they are.
- You CAN meet a good person online, if you’re honest and open to talking with others
- Get to know someone before you meet them in person
- If you have anything that you do not like or do not want in a date, be sure to say so.
Though you might not have someone to set you up with the perfect man or woman, you can play your own matchmaker with online dating. Just be clear about what you want (and what you don’t want) to find the right person for you.
Sure, the rules have changed, and the playing field has become a little scarier, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun along the way.
