After a restless night sleep dreaming about meeting various men from the Mature Free and single website, I was finally ready to write my profile. I sat at my dining room table opened my laptop and wrote the following:
Hi my name is Elaine and I am 52 years old and I am hoping to meet people who like me have found themselves alone after being with someone for a lifetime.
I am an honest, caring and a sensitive woman who loves to laugh and have deep meaningful conversations on just about any subject. I have joined the site in the hope of finding a man who is genuine, intelligent, loyal and caring with a good sense of humour. Beauty is only skin deep it’s on the inside that counts.
I believe when you truly love someone, you work together to bring out the best in each other, in order for you both to be the best you possibly can be. I am not interested in playing games or scoring points. I believe in being in an equal relationship, to have interesting conversations and spend quality time together.
I love cosy nights in with a lovely home cooked meal, nights out at the cinema, and lazy Sunday pub lunches. It’s the company that counts not the location, or the expense, just two people who enjoy being with each other with similar qualities, hopes and dreams.
I read it back and thought that it sounded okay at least I did not sound like a gold digger or someone who was only interested in meeting someone who was tall dark and handsome. I checked the spelling and clicked the button to send it off to be approved.
Scary or what! This was it I was going live online. I had seen two of my girlfriend a few nights ago and they had taken some photographs of me. We had such a laugh, they must have taken over 50 photographs which I downloaded on to my computer and we sat and went through them together. I explained that the site advised taking a clear photograph preferably alone and not too far away. After discounting 48 photos due to imperfections which showed up on the photo’s I never realised I had such a big nose! Now I understand why these celebs pose in a certain way every time you see their pictures.
Finally I had 2 photos and I followed the instructions online which I found very easy to do and then, they too were waiting to be authorized. I felt a mixture of emotions, excited, scared, vulnerable, what if no one liked the look of me? What was I doing?
I looked at the membership price which I thought were quite reasonable I decided that the three month option was probably a good start for me and entered all my bank details and clicked the button and I was now officially a member of the Mature Free and Single website.
