If you're over 50 and living your life in the single lane then you might be forgiven for edging on the less than optimistic side when it comes to finding that special person. But actually, the over fifties is the fastest growing group enjoying online dating and friendships. Whether you are seeking a soul mate with whom to share personal, intimate moments or new friends in your local area, 50plus-Club is the first-choice place where you can engage with like-minded people who share your ideals and goals in life.
Make New Friends at the Click of a Button!
The days of lonely hearts ads in the classified columns of your local newspaper are, on the whole, long gone and, with the advent of the internet and its soaring popularity, online dating and socialising has exploded - none more so than for the over fifties. With a growing sense of freedom, a more relaxed view of life and the benefit of experience guiding you, your fifties and sixties are the perfect time to find a partner or close friend.
Browsing the profiles of like-minded people on your computer takes away a sense of urgency or pressure, meaning you can enjoy a little diligence in your search. Maybe you will, initially, make new friends with whom you can enjoy a game of squash, a countryside ramble or a peaceful lunch at a local restaurant. Meeting people who share your ideals and your interests is vital if you are to ‘click' and from friendship love may blossom.
Being over 50 isn't exactly a life sentence and many describe this age as the prime of their life. However, when it comes to completing that all-important online profile it is essential that you are honest with yourself as well as any potential partners. Be realistic about your successes to date and your ambitions for the future. Don't undersell yourself - you've earned the right to be where you are and, as a result, you have the world at your feet when it comes to choosing who you would like to spend your time with.
Select a photograph for your profile that shows you in your best light: think happy, relaxing times doing what you love to do most, and forget dated passport pictures and selfies. In your fifties it matters less about what's on the outside than the personality that lies within.
You Are Not Alone!
While your friends may all seem to be happily settled with families, remember that you are by no means on your own when it comes to seeking a new partner or close friend. Huge numbers of people in their fifties and beyond are turning to the internet to find like-minded individuals and you may be pleasantly surprised by just how many potential friends or partners you discover. With a wealth of matching profiles you can afford to take your time, engage with others in online chat and meet socially before taking the plunge. You may happen upon that special someone with whom you instantly click!
