This is a great start! I have long believed that the secret to finding a lasting partnership is less about meeting the one but rather about meeting some one who you find attractive and interesting but who also — and this is crucial — wants the same kind of relationship that you do at the same time that you want it.
This can apply to casual relationships as much as serious ones: Being real friends-with-benefits requires the highest level of emotional honesty and communication in order to make the parameters of the relationship clear and avoid hurt feelings. Your point that advertising this on your profile may elicit creepy messages is not an irrelevant one, but I do think for maximum efficiency you should be pretty clear that you are looking for something casual because of your existing commitments.
And you do want someone who is very sex-positive. One option is to look for people with similar profiles to yours: If your tastes run to the kinky, you could also consider investigating in apps and sites that are more open about their focus on sex, such as Fetlife. Once you do decide to meet people, remember to take the same precautions that you would if you were dating for more romantic reasons: Dear Eva, I am 37, a single mom and am looking to find someone , but not a boyfriend.
Online dating throws all of those excuses out the window because every dating site has you fill out a profile when you join so you have tons of things that you can use to start a conversation. Online dating gives you a quick alternative and introduces you to loads of single people in your area that you may have never met otherwise.
Not only that, but you know that they are ALL actually out there looking for someone. I t also makes the process of meeting people much easier and a lot less nerve-wrecking. Everyone is busy and it can be really hard to find time to go out and meet new people.
Online dating gives you the opportunity to meet new people at your convenience. Thanks to online dating, you no longer have to do that. You can do it early in the morning, late at night or even during your lunch hour. Are you going to drop another hundred bucks the next weekend?
Many even have free trial periods. I like that they can match you by age and your area. They have a dedicated area for seniors. Another one of the reputable, larger firms in Australia. Has a good selection process and is strict on members. However, it does cost to speak to people and this can really add up! It has a bit of a reputation of being a tad seedy though….
But hey, if seedy is your thing, this is the place for you! Gay men need love too! All men looking for love! It really tries to focus on the personality of singles, shying away from people choosing others just for looks.
