US Citizens Over 50 Years Turning to Dating SitesMore than quarter of a million people have used a dating site launched by the AARP, a non profit group catering for the over 50s in the US, since its launch a year ago.

The success of the site “HowAboutWe” reflects a trend in America which has seen demand for commercial online matchmakers soar among the over 50s.

datingWhen you start dating, following a few rules of thumb will help you be more successful. It’s tempting to avoid restating the basics, but the truth is, we all forget them from time to time.

5 Sensible Tips to Plan Your Second Date

Sensible Tips to Plan Your Second DateWhether or not to go for a second date is a very important decision to make. After sharing the basic information on your first date, you never know what perception the other person has built about you. Also, the other person may not tell you upfront what he/ she may be thinking about you. Hence, proposing for a second date is the only option you can have to know whether there can be any future between you two.

Dating Tips For Introverts

AA0469991. Fess up. Don’t pretend to be a social butterfly. There is nothing wrong with being introverted. Tell your date if you are someone who seeks friendship first or needs time to fall in love. You may scare away a few flakes, and instead attract people who will really appreciate you.

2. Meet at places where you feel confortable. If you don’t like loud bars, don’t go there. Often introverts are also pleasers, and they will do what they think is asked of them even if they suffer. Find a place that makes you feel comfortable: a laid back coffeeshop perhaps, or a park. Take your date out for a walk with your dog. You’ll have an ally who will be there for you whatever happens.

3. Avoid smooth talkers. In a relationship, you need to be heard...

5 Workable Dating Tips for Shy Men

Dating Tips for Shy MenWe women often think all men are confident, sure of themselves and have no problems getting women. Some men are like that, but many aren’t. I’ve met a lot of shy men throughout my life and almost all of them have had no idea how to meet women, or what to say if they do meet a woman they like. So, from a woman, here are my Top 5 Tips to help shy guys meet women.

1. Don’t try to meet women in bars. The most important tip I think there is. Just like women don’t usually want to meet a potential boyfriend in a bar, I wouldn’t recommend trying to meet a potential girlfriend in one. Bars are loud, smoky and usually full of people who are quite drunk.

Do try to make your partner feel comfortable. It is natural that we feel nervous on our first date so if you can successfully break the ice, it will be a more enjoyable meeting for both persons.

Do have a good rest before the meeting so that you will not be showing signs of fatigue or worst, yawning away during the date.

Be an interesting date. Nervousness is anticipated but try to have some ready topics up your sleeves so that you will not end up staring at each other, having nothing to talk about and frequent awkward moments of silence between the two of you.

Laugh at the jokes...
