Dating in your 40s – why smart singles head online
by EliteSingles Editorial
Whether you’re seeking love for the first time, or are starting again, dating in your 40s can feel daunting. Not so online: having lost its stigma, most Kiwis now agree online dating is a great way to meet a future partner – just as long as you look in the right place. With a smart, secure dating site like EliteSingles on hand to help you meet mature, intelligent, and successful singles, there’s no better time than now to be dating after 40 and opening an exciting new chapter in your life.
Dating after 40: gaining a new perspective on relationships
It’s fair to say that, if you are like most New Zealand men and women dating after 40, you’re almost certainly taking the search for love seriously. Long gone are the days where cheap thrills and short flings were enough to keep you happy and – as a professional, a parent, or simply an all-round responsible adult – your relationship goals have become more serious. And there’s nothing wrong with that! Meeting and falling in love with a supportive, mature partner is a worthy priority in your life; the only problem is how to meet promising men and interesting women in their 40s who also happen to be single.
The benefits of online dating in your 40s
This issue is why, for so many Kiwi singles aged 40+, online dating is such a smart choice. After all, if you want to start a new relationship it makes sense to go where the singles are and – for an ever-increasing number of New Zealanders – that place is online.1 What’s more, if you choose a serious dating site, the people you meet won’t just be single – they’ll also be the kind of relationship-minded folks you actually want to be dating.
Of course, that begs the question – just how do you pick the right site? Dating sites for the over 40s aren’t in short supply, so it’s important to find the one that works best for you; the one that aligns the most with your priorities.
How do you decide what site is right for you?
If your dating priorities include meeting dynamic singles who are seeking meaningful relationships, then EliteSingles is a great place to start.

Tips for dating after 40
The most important piece of advice for 40 plus dating is simple: don’t stagnate. If you’re ready for a relationship, then stay active in your search for love because it’s all too easy to have blind faith that love will fall right into your lap or rely on being set up by your wide circle of friends. While that’s not impossible, statistics say that the dating game isn’t really like that in practice (as an example, studies have shown that just 17% of people actually like their blind dates!1). In other words, finding your own potential partners – whether that’s online or offline – is the key to success. When dating in your 40s, without doubt, you make your own luck!
And, of course, there are many great advantages to using EliteSingles too…
