Finding love online
Love isn’t defined by age, race, gender or distance, but what is the actual definition of love? According to Wikipedia the word “love” can have a variety of related but distinct meanings in different contexts. Many other languages use multiple words to express some of the different concepts that in English are denoted as “love”; one example is the plurality of Greek words for love which includes agape and eros.
Love to me is the burning feeling in my stomach, I think about the person the minute I wake up and when I fall asleep. I feel safe in their arms and cant wait until I see them again.
Do we find love, or does it find us? One thing is for sure, you have to work for it. Due to the current pandemic more and more people are turning to the internet in a bid to find love, and this is suitable for everyone. With a large range of older dating sites UK available it means that anyone of any age can find love and companionship by using dating sites.
Dating when one gets older doesn’t need to be thought of as a minefield. Internet dating is simple, easy to follow and all you need is a phone or a computer/ipad and the internet or data package. You can have a look at our love during lockdown special here.
There is an element of safety you need to consider when embarking on this new exciting journey, don’t disclose your bank details to anyone and be cautious about revealing your address.
Many mature relationships are formed online and they lead to meaningful long term love. As we don’t know how long this pandemic will last, I would recommend anyone to dip their toe into online dating, even if you spend time forming a friendship during this unsettling time it will make the lockdown hours fly.
Online dating isn’t restricted to meeting someone in you local area, you could meet the person of your dreams from the other side of the world, can you imagine the excitement of after months of chatting online, you finally get to board a plane and meet them in person
The great thing about online dating is that you have already formed a solid base by talking about each other online and discussed what you like/don’t like to do- no more endless trips to restaurants on fact finding missions, you can see if you are compatible from the comfort of your couch.
What makes great compatibility?
- A willingness to learn more about each other
- An open mind
- Having the same desires and expectations
- Similar values and morals
Honesty is always the best policy! As easy as it might seem to tell the odd white lie online about a number of things such as your appearance, status, wealth, age etc, it is always best to be as honest as possible as just remember that lies tend to come and bite you in the ass. I would also suggest you think about how hurt you would be, if you found out that the other person had been lying to you.
Treat online dating as a fun experiment, a social experiment to see if it works for you. I personally think with the pandemic, that online dating is the absolute way forward and if you are more mature don’t let that be a barrier to you finding love online.
