Cybersex hookups - The pitfalls of senior dating

Elite Singles can help you find a truly compatible partner!

By Joan Price You’re ready to connect for dating, sex, love, companionship – but dating as a senior might feel awkward and downright weird. How do you navigate online dating and avoid the pitfalls that send potential dates running in the other direction?

This is mainly because cheaper competitor sites and smartphone apps, such as Tinder, have boomed in popularity, explaining why some of the UK’s pricier dating services are suffering – and possibly going to greater lengths to keep singles signed up on their books, Another site at the higher end of the dating market is Elite Singles, which is designed for people with a certain level of education.

Have someone else take your photo—too many people post “selfies” that show them scowling or squinting because they can’t see the tiny window without their reading glasses (and don’t want to wear them in the photo). —your date can’t help but see you as someone who started out with a lie.

One woman who is no stranger to the various pitfalls of dating services is Aileen Edwards, a 61-year-old health worker who cares for dementia sufferers. In her spare time she enjoys theatre, swimming and the great outdoors.

But despite the significant increase in the number of daters, total revenue for the UK dating industry is falling, meaning firms are making less money per head.

In the two years between 20 alone, revenue dropped by £9m from £168m to £159m.

Searchmate has now offered Aileen a full refund of £1,295.
