Dating & Friendship for the Over 40s...

Mature Free and Single is the site for me

 Finding myself alone at the age of 52 was a strange experience for me; I had been with my husband from the age of 15. I suppose it was usual story I married too young and we eventually grew apart.  But after a period on my own I decided that I needed to get my life back on track, find some male company and build up my social life again.

I decided to do some research on the internet and was amazed by the number of online dating sites I found.  I clicked into many of them only to jump back out straight away. Some sites were so seedy or they appeared to be full of young people.  My friends found it hilarious and said I could be a cougar and find a little cub to mother! Forget that for a lark I wanted to find a nice man similar age to me with good old fashioned manners.

After several evenings surfing the net I came across the site called Mature Free and Single, now that was a name I could appreciate, basically it said it all. Because I am mature, free to date and also single after just finalizing my divorce.

I decided to investigate and put in my details just so I could have a browse at the members on the site. This was a paid for site and to be honest I did not mind that because it shows that the people on the site are serious and wanting to find someone. Unlike the free sites which did not suit me at all. I was not looking for a brief fling I was looking to find someone genuine and who was basically looking for the same things as me.

I have to admit that I was impressed with the caliber of the men on the site. I spent the whole evening looking at various profiles and noted that they fell into categories of Friendship, serious relationship or Fun.  Now there was a question for me what was I looking for? I suppose I was hoping to find the man of my dreams online. I pondered for a while and then decided if I joined the site it would be Friendship initially, which hopefully would lead to more.

I saw that I would be required to write a profile about myself and there was a section where I could put my height, eye colour etc. I read through everything carefully seeing a section for uploading my photographs.  I was excited but also a little frightened too. This was all new to me. I did not really know what to expect.

 I decided to sleep on it and take another look again the following evening. I did not want to rush into anything, so I switched off my computer and went to bed thinking about how I would describe myself  in my profile and which photographs that I had which would look good online.    

To be continued.
