    I'd like the advice of the esteemed & wise people on askaboutmoney about internet dating. I'm a professional man in my late 40s, seperated and living in Dublin Area. Trying the old internet dating with elite singles at the moment, but just being paired with people who live miles away or who are clearly completely incompatible. A good number of the people have no pics up or almost no info. Any recommendations for the best site for internet dating for someone my age who would like to meet someone for a serious relationship ( no jokes about tinder please!)

    Facebook as a dating site? But you are only supposed to add people you know?

    I watched a program that number crunched the dating sites, using sound mathematical principals. The result - you need an average of 700 responses/contacts to get a worthwhile date. So the odds are long, but possible.

    I know you don't want to hear it, but my view is that the old methods - clubs/social events/adult education courses (where you find people of similar interests) are my recommendation. Especially so in your age bracket (no insult intended - I'm in my 50s).


    Also, have you tried First Dates? :) - do let us know if you are to appear.

    You could try 'Meetup.com' its actually not a dating site, more a site for people who share various interests, walking,, art, sport,,, meeting new people,,, whatever,,, I know a girl who met her husband there... (and its free)

    I have heard a lot of positive things about 'Elite singles' but have no personal experience.

    Anybody else with the Pina Colada song going through their head now?

    "If you like pina colada, and getting caught in the rain, if you're not into health foods, if you're into champagne"

    (sorry, couldn't help myself).

    Guys
    Thanks for your replys. It does work for some people. My own view is that a paid website is likely to attract people who ae "serious" about meeting someone. Any views on sites other than elitesingles or PoF?
