As a general rule, online senior dating sites cater to men and women over fifty, but I regularly get emails from mature sexy women who are dating younger men in their forties and even younger!
While many of my readers are women seeking older men, I’ve also noticed a growing number of younger men who are dating mature women because they want to find someone to spend the rest of their lives with and they know that there’s no substitute for maturity and experience.
And some seniors are going online to make new friends and to find romantic partners through online dating.
Like all powerful tools, the Internet and mobile technologies come with some risks.
Visit Connect Safely.org/seniors for information on how to use the spam filters on popular Web-based email services like Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Comcast, Outlook and AOL.
Avoid clicking on links in unsolicited email, as there is a chance they could link to sites designed to scam people or infect computers with malicious anyone, including friends, family and caregivers.
For some, whether internet savvy or not, the idea of beginning a new relationship through a senior dating site is completely uncharted territory.
There can be many natural concerns to overcome, especially if you find yourself single again after the death of a spouse or divorce later in life. You probably know about the big online dating sites.
The Internet is a great way to read the latest news, stay in touch with family, get medical information and manage appointments, renew prescriptions, and access medical records.Make sure you feel good about being associated with anything you say online and be sure not to post anything that you wouldn’t want to share with the world. Simply getting these messages isn’t necessarily dangerous, but it can be annoying.Even if you’re using privacy settings to limit the audience, there is always a chance that what you post can be copied and shared by others. In some cases they can be from companies you’ve interacted with in the past and, if they are legitimate companies, there is probably a link to a page where you can safely ask to be removed from their list.Whether it’s text, talk, or video, the Internet is a great way to communicate.You may remember spending a lot of money on long distance calls and keeping them as short as possible to keep costs down, but now you can call just about anywhere in the world for free or a couple of cents a minute, and make free video calls with services like Skype, Apple Facetime, Google Voice and Facebook Messenger.Some services give you a choice between private and public posts, with private going just to people you designate.
