Mature dating: 5 pitfalls to avoid
Pitfall #2: Telling yourself you can’t do it
We are all our own worst enemies, and there’s often that little voice in our heads that says ‘No, you’ll never get that job you’re under qualified’ or perhaps ‘No, you’ll never meet someone new again, you’re past it’.
The fact is that a PMA (positive mental attitude) can get you very far in dating. As we said before, happy people naturally gravitate towards other happy people (and vice versa).
But if that little voice gets the better of you then you’ll never take the plunge. Maybe you consider yourself ‘past it’ or think that dating is only for people in their 20s. Well, you’re wrong! For mature daters looking to take the leap, online dating is a great start.
For one thing, there are thousands of mature daters in the UK alone using the internet as their route to find someone special.
And when you’re online dating for the first few weeks you can do everything from the comfort of your own home, in the knowledge that the people you’ll connect with are looking for the same thing as you.
