Romance was challenging enough as a whipper-snapper! Speaking as a mature woman (yes I'm officially in "cougar" territory) I find I'm better equipped than ever to handle those moments of awkwardness. I know what I want, and I'm experienced enough to cut to the chase, or at least discern when I'm barking up the wrong tree.
The problem I'm finding as a maturing single isn't so much the sweaty palms and shyness of my younger years as just finding compatible dates who I can trust.
I tried a ton of online dating services but figured out they're pretty much all a waste of money. The only service I found I liked is Real Mature Singles, which isn't really an online dating site. It's a more traditional match-making service souped-up with all kinds of online features.
I still haven't found that one special person to settle down with, but I now have a much wider field of men I feel more comfortable getting to know. And I'm definitely turned on about dating again! XXx OOo ~Candice
