Online dating dos and don'ts

Some things to look out for if you want to try online dating. Remember, these sites are businesses, there to make money, not to find you love. I have tried several, all the same, even the so-called free ones, will want you to pay to access members. Okay, so you take the leap and wow, you get loads of hits on your profile, messages too. You answer, but get few replies...why? Because many of them are fake profiles. this could make you disillusioned, worse than what you were.. I am a male, 68 and considered okay, I do not have 2 heads, so thought someone may be interested...anyway. the warnings..guys and ladies,if you see a username with a number such as "honeybun12345" its a dodgy one, from members usually in Eastern Europe, who will want you to give them your personal email or direct you to another site, they want your bank details, avoid. Don't confuse this with a genuine member who puts their date of birth after their name such as "sue220954". The crooks put numbers with the usernames, to keep tracks of their input profiles. also, avoid all messages saying "hey there" same crooks. Guys - if the ladies look as if they have just appeared in a glossy mag, they probably have fake pics. ladies, if the guy falls in love with you after a few chats, ask yourself, are you really that irresistible? Don't be taken in, that he is in the US military and moves about, don't send money for their sick kids or for airfare, so he can come to visit you. common sense, yes, but we all need to believe and it's easy to think people are as honest as ourselves. Good luck. Forgive any typing mistakes, have my damaged right hand in a splint at the mo.

Divorce and moving on

Hi there. This is my first post on silversurfers, So it's a bit hard to put into words, I'm 67 and in the process of going through a divorce after been married for 48 years . I'm starting to look around on getting a place of my own not sure if I could afford a rented flat or something like that, I know other people are probably are in similar situations as I am and it tuff. So moving away from this house we've been in for 32 years is going to be a very big wrench, I'm a Catholic and my faith has helped so much to move forward. I think so much of others in this similar situation and my heart goes out to you all. Keep positive have a good think about life and what's going to be good for you and your family. It would be interesting if anyone else are going through a similar situation as I am for advice on moving either close by or move further afield thankyou for taking the time to read this. God Bless. Clive..

Good men?

I lost my husband 4 years ago in a car crash. I actually wasn't pressured to get back and date again. Lately, I feel the need to be loved and be with a man. Are there still good men out there or I should just forget about dating again, kindly advice?

Worried about husband!

I've been feeling a little anxious about my husband lately. We've been together for 20 yrs and married for 17 of them. No kids at home, and we both work full time. I feel like we're drifting apart, and I'm experiencing bouts of sadness due to this. Firstly my husband lost his sex drive. Initially, I didn't know why, but after some prompting, he told me one of his testicles had become swollen, and that he was worried. Long story but I convinced him to visit his doctor, He had a few tests, and it was the diagnosis was a Varicocele. Not life threatening and has since had this fixed a couple of months ago. Our sex life is still non-existent. My husband tells me he hasn't had any libido for months and that it will probably not return. I sense a loss of intimacy in our r/ship. He seems ok with it. We have slept separately for probably 3 yrs due to husbands snoring keeping me awake. We don't mind sleeping separately tbh so this isn't an issue as per se, but it also means we don't have cuddle time anymore, which makes me feel like I am living with a friend. Our days off together are ok, but no brilliant. My husband goes inside himself a lot, reading newspapers, watching tv etc and I am becoming increasingly lonely. I don't feel like I am a needy type person, but our marriage seems very weird now. Please if anyone has any suggestions or you've been through a similar experience, I'd love to hear your thoughts. TIA

My husband watches porn

My husband watches porn, he thinks in secret but I often find out. I know it’s normal but what hurts is that he doesn’t come near me, not even for a cuddle or a hug. When he does hug me he tends to pat me on the back. A couple of years ago I found he’d been trawling dating sites but offering sex not relationships. I don’t think he actually ‘signed up’ but he was looking at lots of them, including one showing only woman over 50. I’m 56! I feel so worthless and unimportant.

Dating After Bereavement

I would be interested to see what other people think about dating after a bereavement. Should I even consider dating again, or would that be disloyal to my late partner? I know someone who started dating less than six months after her husband died, and I know other people who never dated again.

I would be interested to hear other people’s thoughts on dating again after losing a spouse. I lost my partner over a year ago. I am very lonely, but in two minds as to whether I should date again. Even thinking about it makes me feel guilty. I am 58.

Finding my father

I’ve never met my father, seen a picture of him or even know if he’s tall or short or blue eyed or brown eyed, a nice man or a not very nice man. I’ve lived with this all my life until my daughters just had my first grandchild and suddenly it’s made me wonder about him. I know so little about him as he left town as soon as my mother fell pregnant and I’m at a loss to know where to start. All I know is his name and a rough idea of age. I’m not wanting to cause him or his family any hurt, however just to know mine, and my children’s possible medical implications for the future would be great. Hope you understand why I’m searching and I hope this is allowed as a topic Thanks
