Dating for older folks

19 Jun

My boyfriend’s childhood was before the internet; my childhood was the internet.

So by the time AOL’s megasuccessful instant-chat system flowered into a mainstream mode of communication in the late ’90s, my boyfriend was a teenager and already had an established impulse for how to get in touch with his peers: a phone call.

Dialing someone’s home phone line, briefly exchanging words with one of their parents or siblings, and then catching up with a friend or asking a girl out on a date — these were normal, natural things people his age did, and continued to do, uninterrupted, even after the arrival of the internet.

At Our Time.com, we honor the freedom, wisdom and appreciation for life that only comes with time.

We also recognize that what people want in their 50s, 60s and beyond is often very different from what they wanted in their 30s and 40s, let alone their 20s.

For him, they are what instinctively happens when he has a question, when he has a funny story, when he wants to make plans.

He sees texting as a slower, more frustrating alternative to the quick, easy phone chat, and I see it as both less confrontational and more private than a call.

A big plus for Milf Date is that it's the friendliest of the mature women dating sites for the free members.

A dating site that not only understands what it is to be over 50, but also celebrates this exciting chapter of our lives.
