Perhaps the greatest shock to someone who's been married for the past 25 years or so is how much the dating scene has changed.
But with the prospect of growing old alone, many people over the age of 45 ultimately start to actively date in the hopes of meeting a suitable companion.
Not only has the way to meet people changed but you have probably changed quite a bit from when you were in your 20s or 30s.
It's simply become the easiest and most efficient way to meet someone.
Keep a positive tone and focus on asking for what you do want in a mate.
