"My wife and I met online over thirteen years ago, both of us having been through divorces. Online dating truly worked for us. Before we found each other, we each met a couple of nice people online, which made the process enjoyable and hopeful. It didn’t take long to find the person we fell in love with. Our journey is a testament that love and companionship can be found at any stage of life."

Safety Tips For Online Dating

We’ve successfully helped hundreds of over 40’s into happy relationships and while we want this journey to be fun for you, your safety is even more important.

We continuously put a lot of effort into creating a secure space where you can find exactly what you’re looking for.

All you need to do is follow these simple, common-sense tips to get the most out of Over 40 Dating.

Safety tips that work online… and off

Here are some essential tips to help you stay safe:

  1. Protect Your Personal Information: Avoid sharing personal details like your home address, workplace, or financial information with people you’ve just met online.
  2. Stay on the Platform: Keep conversations on the dating platform initially, where you have the benefit of user reporting and moderation tools.
  3. Verify Identities: Use video calls to verify the person’s identity before meeting in person. This helps ensure you are speaking with who they claim to be.
  4. Plan Safe Meetings: For your first few dates, choose public places and inform a friend or family member about your plans. Arrange your own transportation to and from the meeting.
  5. Be Cautious with Photos: Avoid sharing photos that reveal too much personal information, such as where you live or frequently visit.
  6. Trust Your Instincts: If something doesn’t feel right, trust your instincts and take steps to protect yourself. Report any suspicious activity to the platform’s support team.
  7. Watch Out for Red Flags: Be wary of individuals who seem too perfect, avoid answering personal questions, or quickly express strong feelings of love.

Following these guidelines can enhance your online dating experience while staying safe and secure. Over 40 Dating and the Metropolitan Police take your online safety seriously. Follow this link to view our safety video

It’s time to meet up!

Seeing your date in person can often be make-or-break as it only takes a few minutes to get or make that all important first impression. If you’re captivated by their profile and personality, there is a good chance there’ll be some attraction when you start dating.

We all start relationships with a first date and if we get it right then a wonderful future may await you. Good places for a first date outside of bars and restaurants are those that partly attracted you to a date in the first place. If the other person is as mad on horse racing as you are then a picnic and visit to your local track makes perfect sense. Remember though that first dates are often best in daytime and in social surroundings. Think outside the box and you could find yourself off to a great start.

Your dating profile is all important

Take your time with your over 40 dating profile. Choose a photo that shows you in your best light and avoid passport photos that usually look grim. You may have a wonderful photo of you drunk at a party with your friends but it’s unlikely to get you many admirers online. Ideally your profile should have a range of photos which show the different sides of your character.
Avoid clichés in your profile such as ‘go with the flow’ or ‘happy go lucky’. These might be true, but many other people say the same thing. Try using words that individualize you such as a music gig you have just been to or a novel you have just finished. If eating out is your thing, then mention your favourite food. If you are lucky enough to have a great job, then describe it. You get the idea.

Keep looking

All of us are multi-dimensional and although it would be great to find the only other Donald Trump, fan club member in Sunderland who is over 6ft tall and whose favourite food is roast rat, it is unlikely. The best way to search is to firstly focus in on the things that are non-negotiable such as whether a person smokes or not and whether they are within a reasonable radius. After that, start adding all your likes and dislikes one at a time and slowly you will get to your perfect shortlist of potential people to chat to.

Don’t wait. Make a move

If someone you think looks good has read your profile and hasn’t sent you a message, please don’t give up hope! It’s still more common for the male members to be proactive than women with their online dating, Men often love the confidence that comes with you making the first move.

The same goes for the men. If you’ve winked at a lady and she hasn’t reciprocated then don’t fret, write to her. Keep your messages short and friendly but if they don’t write back then don’t stress about it. Online dating can be a numbers game.
Most online daters will meet at least one person they’re not that attracted to during the process. It’s totally normal and mirrors any other form of dating. Keep at it and when you do meet the perfect person, you’ll know that it was worth the wait!

Use common sense

It is our main priority to make sure that you have a safe and successful experience on this website. We strongly recommend that you build up relationships over time and do not give out your personal telephone number or address to matches that interest you straight away.

It is unlikely that you would give your life story and all your details to somebody you had met for thirty minutes in the local pub and did not really know, so do not do it online either.

Online dating is different to traditional dating because you can be highly selective and take your time. Remember that you are fully in control and there is no rush at all to move things forward.

Use common sense just as you would in traditional dating. We believe that the best venue for a first date is always somewhere public. Also, that a first date during the daytime hours is sensible.

The world is full of happy couples. Many met for the first time on this website. Enjoy the experience and happy dating!
