So, heading online is one of the best bets for those dating after 50.
It gives you access to a community of like-minded singles; it can bring love, companionship and romance and it all happens in a safe, supportive environment. Older dating can be very different from looking for love in your 20s or 30s.
To put yourself at ease, it’s ok to focus on finding companionship, at least at first.
As Relationship Coach Sam Owen says, you can ‘’endeavour to increase your friendship circle as a way of finding Mr or Mrs Right.
When you do decide to take the next step, it is vital to give your new partner their own space in your life.
