Dating over 40

SINGAPORE: Man – with a few grey hairs – meets woman. But instead of asking for her number, quietly hopes to see her at the next social gathering.

Welcome to the world of dating for singles over 40, where the norm is intense rumination instead of a headlong plunge into a relationship. read more

Violet’s Comments: Read this rather interesting article in today’s TODAY newspaper. Think it’s really heartening to know that this lady Dr Liu¬†has started a social club for singles who are over 40. Being in the dating industry for the last 5 years, I know that it is not easy for ladies over 40, and also men who are in their late 40s¬†and 50s¬†to meet like-minded singles. Especially when you are a divorcee with children. For singles over 40 who have been reading my blog, do check out Dr Liu’s site.

Running out of Romantic Ideas?

romancetracker.jpgCame across a really cool blog lately. It is entitled Romance Tracker, and the tagline of this blog is “Old-Fashioned Romantic Ideas for Modern Relationships”.

You might be thinking that it is another one of those blogs that offer really generic ideas about dating and relationships… ideas that are too “cliche”. No… this blog, authored by Phil Van Treuren is actually filled with very useful and insightful tips.

Phil is a professional writer, web designer, continuing education teacher and media and campaign consultant. And if you are wondering what makes Phil such an expert in this area? Phil’s objective is not to proclaim himself as an expert, as he believes that the real expert in any relationship is ‘you’! All he wants to achieve with his blog is to inspire you to make your relationship more interesting and exciting everyday by applying some of the romantic ideas that you can find on his blog! :)

Want to find out how to write poetry to impress your girlfriend/boyfriend? Or want to know when is a good time to say I love you for the first time? Not sure what to buy your girlfriend for her birthday? Or just wanting to learn to say I love you in 83 languages? You can find it all on this blog!

What are you waiting for? :) Go check it out now!

Blog Plug: Charming but Single

This blog is written by a gal who is 27, who lives in the South (US). As described by her in her ‘About’ page, she writes about dating, not dating, online dating, thinking about dating, vowing never to date again, bad dates, good dates, non dates, and her frequent frustration with the male species. :)

Her blog is an easy and very compelling read. Very real, very direct, very frank. When reading her blog, I can feel myself being there with her as she manoeuvres the dating circuit. She’s funny and witty too. I love the way she looks at things. I particularly thought this post was quite funny. Imagine really writing such a letter to a guy you have just gone out with! Haha! :)

What are you waiting for? :) Go check it out now!
