I was having so much fun visiting the Mature Free and Single website, I could not believe how easy it was to use. I was enjoying reading all the diary entries. Although a profile is great, somehow you can get to know more about how a person ticks by what they write in their diaries. Most were very positive which I think is fantastic.
I decided that I was going to start writing some diary entries myself so I wrote about how easy I was finding the site to use and in no time at all I was receiving messages from yet more men saying that they agreed with me.
Somehow it gives the shyer ones an excuse to email someone, when you have the diary section and its a feature that many dating sites do not have.
One man who emailed me always wrote interesting diaries, so we struck up a conversation which went back and forth all evening. He lived hundreds of miles away, so it was not as if we were going to meet up, but it was lovely to communicate with someone and it also passed on what would have been a lonely few hours for me.
I also find it interesting to see what everyone is doing for Christmas, because being single at Christmas can be quite daunting to some people. Lots said they were going to spend time with their families and the odd few were saying that they were spending Christmas alone.
My long distance friend Michael introduced me to the chat facility which I thought was brilliant and his replies had me laughing out loud. He was a little bit shy about contacting some ladies like most of us I think he was worried about rejection. We made a pact that we would both email three other members and then compare notes, in no time at all he was emailing me saying that he was emailing a couple of ladies who lived near him and appeared interested in what he had to say.
I was nervous about contacting someone first but decided just to keep it light and say. Hi, my name is Jayne and I have just joined the site, how long have you been on here?
Two out of the three emails responded saying how long they had been on the site and started to tell me of a few of their dating experiences. Wow I thought this is far easier than what I thought it would be.
Michael my long distance friend and I kept emailing each other with our progress which again was good because he could give me the male perspective and likewise I could give my side for the ladies.
By the end of the evening I had made yet another couple of good friends and saved them to my favourites so I would be able to see when they were online.
Still having lots of fun doing this online dating. Somehow I think this Christmas is not going to be that lonely for me after all.
Merry Christmas everyone x
