You may think after all these years of dating, you’d have all the rules memorized. But it’s not always the case, is it? Whether you are 50 or 25, dating always brings in a heavy load of worries and anxiety. It’s never textbook when it comes to dating and relationships since every person is different and by the time you’re 50, most women just stop going out on the field. But the truth is, you do need exposure to men if you don’t want to bid your love life ‘goodbye’ just yet.

Love has no age. But when you’re 50, you don’t really have the time or patience to be on awkward dates with weird men, right ladies? This is where online dating sites comes to your rescue. With online dating sites, save yourself the hassle of looking for your one true love and let the algorithm do the magic.

Finding your desired partner has never been easier. It’s a common misconception that these online dating sites are centered around younger generation yet we have famous sites like OurTime which specifically focuses on middle aged singles ready to mingle.

So without further ado, here are the top 3 Dos and Don’ts for single women in the world of online dating!


1. Revamp Your Dating Profile

Most women don’t update their online dating profile very often and this is a huge mistake. Like anything online, profiles too can get stale after a while due to inactivity since nobody likes to approach these people. The trick is to be spontaneous. Add recent photos, interests, activities and information about yourself so your prospects know exactly who you are as a person. Revamping your profile does need a good amount of effort because in order to catch a big fish, you’ll need to use a fresh bait. Adding the latest information also helps you get more exposure in the community, making your profile stand out from thousand others.

2. Flirt!

Yes, men love grown-up women flirting with them. Test your prospect’s personality and sense of humor by flirting. It’s a great way to check both of your compatibility levels too. Women above 50 often think outright flirting is inappropriate for their age, but you’d be surprised to know that men love expressive and forward thinking women. Most men are left wondering whether she is really into him or not, and you flirting eliminates that issue entirely. Flirting is a fun way to express your feelings and also makes him feel special, and even different too for a change!

Speaking of compatibility, dating sites like eHarmony are different from traditional sites as they handle matters scientifically. eHarmony’s matching system will evaluate your needs and personal traits to find you the most compatible partners so you don’t have to. This time, you can just sit back and enjoy the ride as you go.

3. Keep Communicating

Great communication builds a great relationship. At 50, knowing your needs, communicating your priorities, and knowing what you are looking for from your partner helps transparency. But how do you stay communicated 24/7? Mobile apps of course! Zoosk’s app is simple and easy to use and available on both play store and app store. Their incredible Behavioral Matchmaking technology is continuously learning from the actions and reactions of 35 million+ members, thus providing better matches in real time.

1. Have unrealistic expectations

Yes, he did say he was going to call you and that you two had a great date and you can’t wait to see him again. But if he doesn’t call you back, it’s usually a clear sign or disinterest. Men often chicken out of awkward situations and simply cut off. As a grown-up woman, you need to give him some reasonable time to show up by himself or else it’s time to move on, just like he did. Moping around like a teenager just won’t do. There are plenty of fish in the ocean, and at this stage in your life, players have no room in your life. Sites like Match.com has a huge user base and is a trusted dating site for people looking for serious relationships.

2. Have sex unless you’re ready

Of course, you’re matured enough to handle your own situations. The last thing you would want at 53 is to add more men to your list of regrets. Be ready to talk to your partner about the status of your relationship and be clear about your physical needs and wants. A grown-up man is likely to respect and appreciate your decision. If he doesn’t, then he’s clearly not the one.

3. Overdo your anti-ageing efforts

This is a common mistake made by most women these days. Of course, a tired looking face full of frown lines is not attractive but a petrifying lip plump or a frozen Botox face doesn’t scream natural either. Ageing has its own beauty. Make yourself look presentable, there is no need to disguise your age as a 20-something old girl.

To Summarize

So, ladies, buckle up your seatbelts and jump into the action already. We hope the tips definitely made your online dating experience a little easier.
