Safe Dating For Seniors During Covid-19 Pandemic
The desire for romance, love and intimacy does not wane as you get older. The majority of singles over 50 still have amorous thoughts and want to keep company with someone they are romantically involved in.
Make no mistake that senior dating is a vibrant scene. Data shows that 29% of seniors in a sexual relationship met through an online dating website.
The coronavirus pandemic may have curtailed the opportunities to find romance in the usual places. However, that has not stopped seniors from searching for a romantic partner through online dating websites.
Mature dating websites that are specifically geared towards singles over 50 provide a relaxed and comfortable environment where you can search for potential matches in the comfort of your own home.
They also give you the opportunity to learn about a person and build up a rapport before meeting them in person.
Not only do online dating websites make meeting romantic partners safer during the pandemic, they also make building a relationship less stressful and nerve-wracking when you do meet for the first time in person.
Mature Dating Sites
If anything, the pandemic has broadened the horizons for mature singles to find love. Shagbook has seen a significant rise of subscribers over the age of 50.
When you first subscribe to mature dating websites, you will be asked to fill in a questionnaire. The details you provide at this initial stage serves two purposes.
The first is to “sell” yourself to potential partners. The other is so the website can find potential matches for you to consider.
Online dating websites enable subscribers to express what they look for in a partner, i.e age, location, interests. You also have the opportunity to reveal your personal interests and describe what they are like as a person.
These websites also have search filters that match you with people that are most compatible to you based on your preferences. An algorithm brings up matches that meet your criteria.
Moreover, singles over the age of 50 are adapting to the ‘new norm’ for dating. There has been an increase in the number of pensioners subscribing to video chat rooms such as Zoom and Skype.
There are also video features in online dating sites that you can use to speak face-to-face with potential partners in real-time.
If you feel a little awkward talking in person, take advantage of the chat room feature and type in your questions and answers. And don’t forget to flirt.
Meeting In Person
The novel coronavirus has complicated the dating game for people of all ages. Seniors are arguably the demographic that will be most affected. But meeting in person is not beyond the realms of possibility if you get your planning right.
Once you agree to meet IRL (in-real-life), make sure to communicate how you feel about coronavirus. Should you wear masks, should you adhere to social distancing regulations etc?
Also, be creative in the places you meet. Public spaces where a lot of people may be present should be avoided. Meet in quieter places. A drive to the countryside or a walk in the forest are good options.
Building a rapport also involves building trust. If you have designs on being intimate, you should agree to self-isolation and only have close contact with your partner.
Are you ready for romance in a pandemic? If you play it safe, you will be safe. Subscribe to Graanyshagbook today and find romance near you.
