With over thousands of dating sites and million + American singles heading online to find love, your online dating options are endless. But, you gotta be careful when going online.

Our experts review and rank the leading dating sites based on features, credibility, and overall value. Check them all out first.
Five Most Important Things a Woman in Her 40s Is Looking For In a Partner
When it comes to matters of love, age concerns have always been at the center. This is why some women will only go for older men, while most males will aim for quite the opposite – younger women.
Regardless of that, anyone trying to woo a woman in her forties must be conversant with her needs to be able to make his efforts pay off.
Keep in mind that there are woman divorced with Kids and that comes Dating With a Baggage.
Not everyone made it through a failed marriage with a clean slate, and some may have gone through a good deal of trouble to hold on to what most refer to as ‘baggage’.
Therefore, whichever side of the dating table you’re sitting in, the divorcé(e) or the suitor, or both, there are a few things to consider before dating.
Things to Know About Senior Online Dating
Remember when dating was meeting a friend of a friend for dinner and a movie? Now retiring Baby Boomers have super busy schedules and are socializing through tablet computers on the Internet. What is a senior interested in dating supposed to do?
Getting up to speed with online dating for seniors is a great start. The dating goals for the younger crowd are often about marriage and building a family. However, there are many seniors out there who have already raised families and have lost a spouse to one reason or another and now wish to meet someone.
The goals of senior dating are often different than they are for younger people but it still works the same way online.
Online Dating Basics for Seniors.
To be sure, dating on the Internet is much like dating in real life. But, don't take everything for granted. Be careful dating online.
You might have to look through dozens of profiles until the right one meets your eye.
The difference is that you can do it from the comfort of your living room. Navigating the world of online dating can be intimidating at first, but it’s a lot easier than you think. With a few simple tips, you can be on your way to finding your soul mate in no time.
Choose a Good Senior Dating Website.
Be sure to thoroughly investigate the dating website. Make sure that it is for seniors.
Read the fine print. The general rule of getting what one pays for follows here too.
Subscription-based sites generally offer better service and results than the free dating sites.
Check out the payment and refund policies. Do not commit for long term services.
About Your Profile
Your profile should be a small window into your lifestyle and personality. Think of it as an advertisement that describes who you are and what you are looking for. Make it interesting and unique. Online users can’t see how vibrant and special you are in person, so it’s important to use language that can carry that message across text.
Choose recent pictures that are flattering but accurate. The ultimate goal of online dating is meeting in person, so it’s important to make your profile as honest as possible without giving away sensitive information.
Chatting Online, be careful.
Online Dating Safety
Senior generations grew up in a more trusting environment and have difficulty navigating risky situations online. Keep in mind that the Internet is global and that the world can be dangerous at times in different places. There are bad neighborhoods that are avoided in real life, and there are people who lie. Keep that in mind and steer away from risky websites on the Internet and do not believe every claim. Don't believe everything you read on the internet.
If it sounds too good to be true, it really is just that. Avoid meeting in private. Go to a public place a distance away from home and bring a friend. Always have an exit strategy, and do not feel obligated under any old-fashioned social protocols.
Finally, when building an online profile, be truthful. Do not pretend to be something false. Otherwise it brings disappointments with the type of dates the profile attracts.
If one's lifestyle is more than active, let it be known. It applies equally if one's life is more active. Not telling the truth becomes discouraging in that potential dates will not be what it could be.
If the future possibility of remarrying is on the table or out of the question, tell the truth about that too.
And for the ending my news report, was this any help at all?
Until then, may you find your valentine partner and enjoy life!
