Can I Use a Mature Dating Site for Casual Hookups?
Many older people don’t want to get married again. Many don’t even want to have another long-term relationship. Been there, done that, and now paying for it in alimony. But there are many mature sex dating sites. You can use these sites to simply find friends, friends with benefits, or for casual dating where you only see the person once, then don’t see that person ever again.
You can definitely use singles dating sites for this purpose. Young people can have casual dates, so there’s no reason why you can’t too. In fact, it can be a lot funner when you’re older as now you have experience.
Here’s how to achieve success and have fun on the mature websites.
- Specify intentions. It really isn’t fair to lead someone on, particularly those who are interested in long-term dating or marriage. State your intentions up front. No, it’s not fun being rejected, but you can move onto people are interested in your type of dating. Be sure your dating profile states your intentions.
- Don’t harass people. Harassment is generally when you swear at people, call them bad names, make sexual comments, or unwanted negative comments or threats. Not only is this not being a good member of the dating community, it’s considered abusive, and it can also get you permanently banned from the dating site. And most sites won’t offer you a refund if you have paid for a cash membership.
- Stay respectful. You never know when you’ll be chatting with someone on the site who is not right for you, but you may see them again. People change their minds all the time. Don’t be rude. If you chat with the same person again in the future, they may just remember how pleasant and respectful you were before. Perhaps you do have a future together.
- Read the profiles. People can get annoyed when you ask them questions that are clearly stated in their profiles. It can show a lack of attention or interest on your part. Read their profile first. Then base your questions on something within their profile. Perhaps they enjoy golfing, or they’re into BDSM, or cosplay. They’ll appreciate that you took the time to read their profile, and you’ve just earned extra points in their regard.
- Ask for dates. If you’ve met some attractive and exciting people online, don’t be afraid to ask for a date with them. Start out slow with a coffee date. You want to ensure they are who they say they are. You’ll also want to consider safety. You don’t want to just show up at someone’s place without any idea of what to expect. At least if you meet at a coffee shop you can gauge whether someone is crazy or not. You can also work out the details of your future sex date if you wish, and you can decide whether to proceed from there.
