People over 40 have more experience of everything, including both social communication and intimacy.
But the best part of this age group is being free from social prejudice.
One of the best and most popular features of a dating site is free online dating chat.
Usually this includes the ability to send you messages.
Some sites will then allow you to see the content of those messages, others won’t. This means that unless the person contacting you sends you a phone number, or email address (some sites automatically remove these) you won’t be able to contact them until you pay for your membership.
Normally what the sites offer is a free trial period of say three days, or the opportunity to create a free profile.
If you have a profile other members can see it and contact you.
