Age Advantage In Dating

The age advantage in dating may come as a surprise to younger people reading this. This is especially useful because Internet dating is becoming more and more popular - even with people in their 60s. You may think that online dating is something only suited for people in their 20s and early 30s, and as you scan through the pages of people on such sites, you may have a point. However, there’s no reason why the more mature single person in their 40s and beyond can’t enjoy the thrills that come with meeting new people over the internet. After all, the fact that mature dating exists proves that there’s no age limit on love.

How To Stay Safe

Many women these days work late and/or live on their own. It's important to pay attention to key points on how to stay safe in and out of the home. Once something is done, there's no undoing, so time spent preventing something nasty happening to you is time well spent. This is why I've put together the safety tips below. Please send them to someone you think could benefit from them. 


Of course, an attitude of constant fear is counter productive, so a wise balance of awareness and trust has to be kept at all times. Below are some of the ways you can ensure your own safety and be aware of the dangers around you.

Vital tips to help you stay safe

Stay safe in the car
  • At night, keep your car keys in your hands to prevent hanging around to search for them in the bottom of your bag or pockets. 
  • Fight back and run away if someone tries to attack you. Many abductors won't bother running after you. Your likelihood of escape is quite high in random attacks.
  • Park in well-lit areas. If you arrive in daylight and know that you're going to leave when it's dark, park next to an office block with lights and a guard, or under a lamppost when possible. Don't be afraid to ask someone you trust to accompany you to your car if necessary.
  • Keep an eye out for cars parked next to yours before you open your door. If there are people inside the car next to yours, treat this as suspicious.
  • Reverse in your parking space if you know you'll leave when it's dark. 
  • Needless to say, don't pick up strangers in the street at night.

Had a great relationship

Dear Anne, I’m doing all the things about ‘How To Get Over A Break UP’ you suggested and I can feel their effect on me day after day. Here’s my story. I broke up with my boyfriend of 3 years a few weeks ago. We truly loved each other, and he treated me like a queen all thorough the relationship. We rarely had any trouble. He’s such a great person and never did anything to hurt me. But I think we exhausted the relationship too quickly. We became too much like an old married couple even though we’re still 20.
