What are the differences between under 40s online dating and over 40s online dating?
Often those who are over 40 and dating online have been married before. Those who have been married may have some ugly memories but probably want to get remarried and do it better. Those under 40 are more likely looking to build a family or simply hook up.
How long do you think it typically takes singles over 40 to find a relationship using online dating, and why?
Those over 40 probably take a bit longer to find what they are looking for because they are clearer on what they want and can sniff out the wrong people quicker.
Do you think there are different success rates for men and women over 40s when online dating? If yes, why?
My guess is men have a higher success rate because they ask out more women, thus have more opportunities to meet more women.
What's your no.1 tip for singles over 40 starting online dating?
Feel your best. It's important to have strong self-confidence before entering back into the dating world for a number of reasons. #1 You will have the confidence to choose more wisely versus desperately. #2 There's nothing more attractive than confidence, thus you'll attract the best out there. #3 Those who also enjoy a healthy lifestyle will be more attracted to you. In general, fit people have the energy and stamina to take part in the best life has to offer.
What is the number one mistake people over 40 make when online dating, and why?
Whining about their past relationship. The end of their last breakup may still be raw but complaining about it is a fabulous way to ensure the next person wants no part of a new relationship with you. The beginning of a relationship revolves around courting and showing your best self. If you can't let go of the past, it will be difficult for someone new to welcome you in.
What's THE best question for singles over 40 to ask someone when messaging them for the first time online?
It's important to relate the message to something unique about the person, such a common interest, hobbies, travel, etc. Never make the first comment about their appearance. They want to know that you're a deeper person, intrigued by something beyond their surface.
