Whether you're reluctantly single or freshly divorced, finding a suitable date can seem like a daunting task, especially after you graduate from the bar scene.
Your workplace may not be the most appropriate spot to pick up a man, and many of your friends of friends are probably already taken, so where can you find available men once you're over 40? We live so much of our lives through technology nowadays that online dating has lost its stigma, and can be a comfortable format in which to get to know someone before meeting him in person.
Sometimes it's way too complicated to find the “right” person, and sometimes it's not so easy to start a conversation, especially if you come across someone you fancy at a random site or forum.
If it happens, let's say, through a social network, it takes an unreasonable amount of time, which can even compare to the amount of time spent finding a date offline.
Free online dating is a great way of testing the waters, but you will soon notice that most free sites are filled with fake or inactive user profiles.
