How a Positive Relationship Can Be Truly Life Changing

How a Positive Relationship Can Be Truly Life Changing

October marks the start of a wonderful time for online dating, with Halloween, Office Parties, Christmas, New Years and 2019 fast approaching. Today we’re going to talk about how a positive relationship can be truly life changing. I’m talking about the sweep you off of your feet and transport you to a happier place kind of relationship that can happen at any stage of life. Some people think that only young people are looking for a relationship through online dating, but they’d be wrong.

Recent research revealed there are almost a million over 40s looking to find love online, but many lack the confidence to get back out there, or feel out of touch with the modern rules of dating.

If you’re single and ready to mingle, you’re hardly alone. The fear of something often makes it rise up in your life as a quest. While dating can be tough, you have the power to get what you want. Dating can be daunting at any age, but if you’re over 40 it can present a whole host of different challenges. But it’s also one of the best times in life to start online dating. Here’s what you need to know about dating in your 40s, 50s and beyond.

Now is a really great time to give your online dating profile a spruce up. And what I mean by that, is that if you haven’t had much interest in your profile for a while. This is the time of year where lots of single people start their online search for a significant other, so your odds of finding a match certainly increase. Profile photos are attached to our social media and dating accounts. I believe that most of the decision to contact or respond to someone online is based on their photo.

The most common mistake people over 40 make is continuing to go after their ‘so-called type’.

Ask yourself, ‘How has going after my type worked so far?’  If the answer is ‘not so good,’ then start thinking outside the box. Try dating someone who simply seems like an interesting, kind, fun, successful human being. Stop worrying if he’s cute, or how tall or short he is, or whether she has blonde hair and long legs. And, by all means, stop saying he or she isn’t your type before you’ve even given the person the chance to prove otherwise. You might just find out that when you let go of Your Type, you actually let love in. So much of living is having experiences that make sense when shared with another.

Another big mistake people make is looking for a checklist instead of a connection. It’s not online shopping, but it feels a lot like that, so we approach it that way. I recommend getting to the in-person meet as quickly as possible. Because the online experience of someone is not always what it feels like to be with them across a table. You never know where a relationship will go. But you want to be clear and open about what you are interested in. Assertiveness should never be confused with being overbearing.

Never give up, there are almost 1 million single over 50’s in the UK. Who are already online dating and waiting to meet someone new. You too can have a positive relationship no matter your age.

We think that dating sites are a great place to start your search and enable you to filter through lots of potential dates quickly and easily. So whether you’re looking for an aberdeen dating site, senior dating or dating sites in aberdeen there’s something for everyone!
