Ensure Your Online Success
Congratulations for taking the leap back into dating! Yes, we know while dating in your 20s may have been difficult, it's a vastly different landscape now. And, we mean that in a GREAT way. Think about it: What you bring to the table now as a mature adult is pretty significant. The fact of the matter is now, you've got wisdom, experience, and street smarts to help you identify exactly what you're looking for in a relationship. With those thoughts in mind, here're our tips for creating a profile which will help ensure your online dating success:

Make a List. Your expectations of what you desire in a relationship and a future mate should be accurately reflected in your online profile. Write down what type of person you are looking for, your expectation (i.e., companionship or marriage), your values and personal interests.

Be Honest. Create and write an online profile which honestly represents you. Remember, it's not about attracting quantity; it's about finding someone of quality.

10 Smart First Date Ideas for Over 50 Singles

There's no question first dates can be nerve-wracking. What to wear? What to say? Where to go? All this uncertainty is compounded when it's not just a first date-but perhaps your first date in a long time.

Mature singles over 50 who haven't been "out there" for a while may feel more comfortable going on a group date. Perhaps even participating in group activities, such as a wine tasting outing or a picnic. Successful first dates at any age should center on common interests or hobbies. By tailoring a first date to include a shared value, you immediately establish a positive connection with others.

How to Be a Good Flirt

1) Break the Touch Barrier. It can be as obvious as touching your arm or knee while making a point. It can be as faint as having your knees come into contact under the table.
