Friends, Romance, Passion for the Over 50’s at St Valentine’s Day

St. Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year, unless you must spend it alone. But how can UK over 50’s meet someone compatible in the short time left before this romantic holiday? Online dating is one way to do so.

Online dating isn’t reserved for young singles or recently divorced thirty-somethings. It’s a great way for silver surfers to meet new friends and perhaps find romance, too. Of course, you may not wish to have a first date with someone on this important day of romance. It might be better if you can meet your new acquaintance two or three weeks ahead of time. So it’s important that you sign up soon and then start the process of communicating with people that you find interesting.

It’s generally a simple process, even for UK over 50’s. The first thing you’ll do is create your dating profile. This provides details about your personality plus your likes and dislikes so that potential suitors can see how they might fit with you. Write in a positive tone, highlighting your best personality traits. Don’t be too verbose; keeping your narrative to a few sentences should be enough.

Upload current photographs to your profile. Choose well-done photos that focus on your face—with a smile, of course. The first photo should focus on you, while a second photo could show you doing something you enjoy; for example, you could be gardening or dancing. Other UK over 50’s will love to know that you enjoy the same pastimes that they enjoy. But make sure that any action type of photo is clear and flattering. A third photograph, showing you dressed for a party or holiday gathering, is recommended.

That is all that’s involved in beginning your online dating experience. From there, you will start receiving notifications of interest or you can do some surfing on your own. Silver surfers can be a little hesitant to reach out in this new world of dating, but bolster your courage with a smile and go to it. After all, true romance and passion could be waiting. Eventually, you will begin corresponding with one or more of the other silver surfers that interest you. Sooner or later you will find someone that you want to meet, and St. Valentine’s Day will be all the more special because you’ll be able to share it with someone as it was meant to be shared—romantically!
