Yet, on the other hand, it can also present a multitude of opportunities to meet someone new, someone to love them; opportunities which they may never had had when they were younger.

Confused? Well don't be... we're going to explain some of the pros and cons of online dating for older women - and, as you'd probably expect, there are almost certainly going to be more pros!

It's fair to say that most older women now looking to date online grew up in an age when there was no internet; social attitudes to dating, marriage and staying with your partner or husband for life, through the good times and bad, were also radically different.

You might ask what this reference to the internet and social mores has got to do with modern online dating for women over 50. Well, certainly, one of the answers is that older women have to learn how best to look for a male partner and date again after, perhaps, many years of being with the same man. Or maybe they have been living alone for some time after their husband or partner has passed away or they have divorced or recently left a long term relationship - and so need to start afresh.

In any of the aforementioned cases, when it comes to the time to start dating again, many older women can be slightly apprehensive so it's always wise to take some good advice from friends or others who have used online dating sites previously.
