Dating should be fun for any stage of life - whether you are a teenager, in your twenties, mid-life, or in your senior years. And dating in your senior years comes with a lot of perks as you can date a lot of interesting people, who have a great deal of life experience. It’s not exactly like when you were a teenager and tried figuring out how to kiss someone! Whilst that was fun for other reasons, it was also combined with a lot of insecurities in many cases. When you go online you find there are thousands of singles up for flirting and fun. Once you’ve created a great online profile (if you aren’t a good writer, get someone to help you out!) with some nice profile pictures you’re ready to start mingling. The best way to reach out to someone online is to send them a private message mentioning something which you really liked in their profile, or if they’re online join them in the senior chat rooms. Over 60% (closer to 70% actually) of people these days who use online dating sites have been on at least one date. How many dates you go on is largely dependent on how many people you contact though - the most successful online daters contact anyone who catches their eye.
Chat rooms for seniors are not meant to be the end destination - people don’t go online to stay online. View it as a party; you mingle with people and chat to those who catch your eye. After talking to them for a little while you exchange numbers and decide to meet up in real life. Maybe you’ll call each other once first, maybe you’ll just meet for a quick coffee. The idea is that you need to sit down face to face in a relaxed environment, such as a coffee shop, to find out if you have true chemistry. Online chemistry doesn’t always translate offline. Likewise, don’t be too picky because people might be a lot better in real life than online. Just because someone isn’t the best as sending messages doesn’t mean they won’t be fun to spend time with in real life. Also, bear in mind that you don’t really find out if there’s that much chemistry on a first meeting. You might both be nervous and adjusting to each other’s real life selves. Try to give it two meetings before you decide what you think about each other!
Sometimes when you’re at home and you want to talk to someone, you may not be able to call anyone because they’re at work; it’s late at night, or really early in the morning. However, you can always find someone to talk to when you hop into senior chat rooms. Over 50 singles frequent these chat rooms on a daily basis because they want someone that they can connect with — someone that they can share their thoughts with, flirt with, and just have some fun with. In these mature chat rooms for over 50 year old singles, it’s a completely different experience than what you might expect, especially if you’ve tried age-inclusive rooms where everyone congregates. In an older chat room, you’ll never have to worry about not fitting in or being out of touch with the topics being discussed because you’ll fit right in!
