Online dating is becoming far more commonplace that we probably ever realized.
If something or someone sounds suspicious, they probably are.
No one likes to think of themselves being judged, but the reality is that you have about 3 seconds to make an initial impression online before your potential prince charming swipes to the next photo.
This is why your primary picture is extremely important.
Data shows that if a man is attracted to you, he will still write back, regardless of your age.
Women receive 3x the number of messages men receive so just by landing in his inbox you have a better chance at success than sitting around like the damsel in distress waiting to be saved by prince charming.
If you are over 40, widowed, or divorced you are most likely to be targeted by someone looking to take your money online.
However, if you are cautious online and look for the warning signs of online predators (which I outline in this article: Avoid Online Dating Scammers) you are less likely to be targeted.
The fact is that there are age cut-off points that most online daters tend to search by.
The benchmarks generally happen in 5s and there are two big cut-offs at 40 and 50.
I tell you the truth not to discourage you but to empower you.
Because men might not be finding you if you are over 40, I strongly suggest that you conduct your own searches and send messages to men that you would like to meet.
