Best dating sites for single parents over 40

Good luck Chh03 I'm afraid I found them all hopeless and I know many friends who said the same.

Interestingly, despite the statistics saying a large percentage of people now say they net their OH online, I know dozens of people who have used OLD but only two long term relationships. I think it makes a huge difference depending where you live Thanks for the advice Fairylea!

“A lot of women who have been dating for a long time arrive to the date with certain assumptions because a man ‘seems’ like someone else they’ve gone out with,” explains Samantha Daniels, relationship expert and founder of , a licensed counselor and consultant.

“They feel like they need one or they are pushed into the dating scene prematurely by well-meaning friends or family.

Don't over invest emotionally, move to a phone call as quick as you can as speaking tells you way more about someone than messaging does.

Make sure they are who they say they are ( google them etc) and don't compromise on the big stuff Absolutely, fairylea.

I found match or Pof pretty good mainly because socially I met people as well as dating. Off the dating scene for a bit but have been on OLD for the last 4 years until recently.

Eharmony is rubbish, not enough choice, tinder is a meat market My mum is 67 and has been on plenty of fish for a while now.

Just accept yourself and be okay with who you are now.

I tried various sites (I'm in my 50s), paid and free and it was hit and miss with them all!

Personally I thought EHarmony was rubbish, I had some dates through Tinder and Bumble and had quite a few dates through my local radio site (which fell under the Venntro umbrella).

Hitting the dating scene in your fifth decade can feel so… After all, there are likely to be children in the picture, and behind every potential partner is a sheer lifetime of romantic experience (and a much, much longer trail of exes). In fact, if you’re dating as a forty-something, you’re guaranteed to be wiser, better at dating, better at knowing what you want, and a lot less impulsive and sensitive to rejection.

That said, if you’re recently single for the first time in a long time, you may not know where to begin.
