Matchmaker’s Picks For Best Dating Sites For Singles Over 40
Learning to navigate online dating is a whole new thing for singles over 40 and celebrity matchmaker and online dating expert Carmelia Ray gets it.
Ray says online dating requires a certain skill set and suggests those over 40 probably need the most guidance in this area. She points out that it’s important for older singles to not expect to meet a partner too quickly or too easily and says they need to be open to rejection and stay positive even when things don’t work out as they hoped.
And when it comes to online dating sites, Ray says these are more ideal for singles who are at least 40:
SilverSingles - Ray says this site is meant to attract older, well-educated professionals, especially those who live in Canada.
Match.com - Being the most popular dating site for singles of all ages, this one also has plenty of people of a certain age among its users.
eHarmony - Our online dating expert says this site is known to attract singles who are serious about finding someone for a long-term relationship.
JASON'S STORY - WINNER
Selfie Clears Man of Crime He Didn't Commit
Texas man originally faced 99 years behind bars
Finally!!! A story about a selfie that helped someone rather than hurting them.
A guy in Texas was confused when police arrested him last year. He was accused of breaking into an ex-girlfriend's home, attacking her, and slashing an "X" into her chest with a box cutter. Sheesh!
When police told him the date of the alleged attack, however, he realized he had been out of town, about 65 miles away at a hotel with his mom and others. Photos were taken and posted to social media, including a selfie. Nine months after his arrest, his lawyers took the evidence of his alibi to prosecutors, and the charge was dropped.
The felony charge, burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit other crimes, came with a possible prison term of 99 years. It's not clear what evidence the Temple Police Department had or thought they had, and police won't talk about their handling of the case. But this guy's alibi evidence included time-stamped, geolocated photos, as well as sworn affidavits from people with him on the night in question.
"Most of the time, we deal with gray matters," says his attorney. "It's not normally black or white. But this is one of those cases where I could definitely prove he did not commit this offense."
