1.  If you are recently divorced or widowed, has enough time passed for most of the healing to take place? Very few people can immediately start to resume a normal life without going through a period of adjustment. The adjustment period can be relatively short, or longer, depending on many issues. Certainly, you can get valuable advice from others, but it comes back to being your decision and how you really feel inside.

2. Are there any major stumbling blocks that may complicate a potential relationship? Financial, family, or something else that can be a problem to meeting seniors for dating? If so, it’s best to get any issues resolved before starting to date. If it’s something that can’t be corrected, and you do meet someone that you’re interested in, make sure the situation is out in the open before you get too serious. It could even be that it’s not much of an issue with the other person. Just don’t try to hide anything.

3. Decide what type of relationship you are looking for? Long-term, marriage, or just a casual friendship. You can certainly change your mind and you may well do so, but at least in the beginning, it’s best to look for others who share similar expectations.

4. OK, if you’re ready to date, how will you get into the dating scene? Perhaps quite a bit of time has passed since you last dated, so you naturally think of the way it used to be. Introductions through friends, family or social groups. Sure, while there are many ways to meet other seniors, times have changed. Now, one of the best ways to meet quality people is through a good online dating service.

Nothing complicated at all. If you have the ability to create an e-mail, you can be online in no time and successfully start a new chapter in your life. It’s so amazingly simple and you’ll be very surprised when you find so many other seniors who are also using senior dating personals.

By using online dating, you have the opportunity for access to many more dating prospects than you would have otherwise. A good online dating service will let you join free, so you can search thousands of profiles immediately. You can also create your own profile for others to see.
