**ad** video dating can be fun.

Hey readers, 

Even though we are easing out of lockdown restrictions that doesn't stop you from considering online dating. I think even if social contact rules get more relaxed the benefits of dating online are still quite strong. 

Not only is online dating accessible to anyone as long as they have the capability to get on the internet. It is also open for all regardless of background, sexuality, or where you come from. 

There are so many dating sites to choose from that cater to lots of different needs not to mention there now so loads of dating apps to consider such as Bumble. 

video dating can be fun.
However, life is a lot easy especially during current times to maybe not go too far afield but closer to home. This could be for example like the site Shropshire Dating Site where if you live in the Shropshire area can find like-minded people that also live in the Shropshire area. 

The site is really straightforward to upload your profile though it is always good to put up a photo for searchers so they can put the name to the face.  

Once you have uploaded your profile and details you can then go search for who tickles your fancy. The great thing about online dating is you can narrow down specifics such as if they are heterosexual if they smoke or a vegetarian for example. 

Another very popular element of online dating is video dating where you go on dates with people virtual via video call platforms such as zoom or what's app. 

The one reason I think online video dating has grown in popularity is that it is so convenient especially due to the lockdown measures. We have a lot more time on our hands. 

For single people that can be quite lonely so video dating is a really easy and convenient solution to meet people during the lockdown and have fun.

 I think video dating is taken over from the other types of dates such as blind dates because people have more time and to get to know the person beforehand. 

 With video dating the element of it being new and something that is a bit different is exciting. There are so many fun date ideas to have online such as doing an escape room together on a Sunday night for example. Another fun date is to play food delivery roulette. 

Basically, the person decides the food you are going to have for the night and versa. It is exciting as you don't know what you will be ordered and it is also fun to decide for the other person. 

 That is the beauty of unconventional dates they are out of the box and it is a bit more fun than just meeting up with a potential partner and going for a meal in a restaurant. 

Not only does it feel a bit safer because you're in your home where you turn of the chat it doesn't feel right. However, having video dates online is easier to be yourself because you in your safe place where you feel comfortable and more likely to be relaxed so it can be easier to get to know one another on a video date. 

Online dating is not just for young 'uns but older people like Shropshire Dating where it is focused on mature dating and the potential to find a relationship. Of course, an older person is more relaxed within themselves so they don't have the pressure to be something that may not be. A really good benefit also of this website is that it is a free dating site. 

Plus with being older then is less pressure to form a relationship quick as fewer commitments but that isn't a negative it just means you can have more fun to get to know someone and have fun.

How to stay safe when exploring BDSM dates **AD**

Hey readers,

Dating has many different ways in which people meet and explore one another. One such way would be the world of BDSM dates.

BDSM is short for is an acronym that refers to a specific type of erotic behavior or play, that may involve any of the following: bondage and discipline (B&D), dominance and submission (D&S), and sadism and masochism (S&M)  (Dictionary.com, 2019). 

Now, this is a grey regarding safety and risk so it is important to make sure that both parties are safe. So here are my tips to be safe when dating.



Nowadays it is very easy to meet like-minded people and the BDSM community is large. There are a variety of different BDSM partners on such as domination mistress to name but one. 

Safety tips.

To start with when it comes to searching for a date and using the internet it is wise to go for dating sites that have a good reputation. 

Also, make sure the company has a high value of safety for its clients. 

One such recommended website is bdsm dates
which are protected by online dating protector, VeriSign secured and Norton Secured. 

Be careful what you download and make sure when it comes to using a password to have a strong with capital letters and symbols.  

When thinking about personal information regarding the profile name you use on a dating site. 

It is important to use a neutral name that is not associated with you as a person or connected to other profile names used on other sites. 

Consider when thinking about the location being vague so you can feel safe knowing that the bigger location further away you are is less easy to track down. 

Don't rush to meet someone, take your time to know who they are as a person and that you get to a stage where you feel comfortable with them. 

One tip maybe would be is to have a separate email address used for BDSM websites so less likely to find out other information found associated with personal information. 

When the time comes if you feel comfortable to hook up with someone then it is best on the first date to meet up with someone in a public area. 

This will give you that security that you are safe and it means you can relax and get to know the person.

 When you leave it would be best to drive yourself home or take public transport, though you may feel comfortable later on in the evening it is important to put safety at the top of your priority. 

Remember at any point you can say no and it is your right to have them wishes be heard. 

It is ok to make someone feel uncomfortable or offend as it best to get out what you want. Then this leaves everyone clear and knows what is happening from the start without the upset at a later date. 
Communication is really important when it comes to BDSM because then everyone is happy and they know what each other wants. It is important that boundaries are clearly set from the start. 

Don't be afraid to say what you like and what you don't like at the end of the day you are an adult and you can participate in anything as long as it is legal and the other person is happy with it. 

Finally, if you plan to participate with risky behavior that could cause safety issues when in a dominating role then it is best to beforehand to establish with your date a safe word or hand gesture. 

Therefore if a situation does occur the person is safe and something can be done about it straight away.

Autumn date ideas that don't break the bank. **AD**

Hey readers,

Whether you're in a relationship or single we can all admit that autumn is a time to get cosy and spend it with someone you enjoy the company with. 

Running up to Christmas maybe you feel you have to tread cautiously with regarding money and not overspending. 

That does not mean to say you can't have any fun with someone and don't even have to break the bank. 

Below I have written some date ideas that may give you some inspiration on how to have low-cost dates that have lots of fun. 



Film night. 

Get cozy at home, turn down the lights and get the throws out, close the curtains and feel safe in the warm when it is cold and dark outside.

 There is plenty of films on during the autumn months so what better way to spend an evening with someone. 

Cooking.

If your into cooking or baking a fun thing to do is make something together in the kitchen. It creates a relaxed environment and less focus on you and more on the cooking which makes it much more fun. 

Singletons. 

If you are in the singles market and want to have naughty fun with like-minded people then check out datenaughtysingles.co.uk/.  

You can grab a date with no anxiety about putting an impression on because it is all about living in the moment and enjoying yourself with someone with similar needs to you. 

Pumpkin Carving.

Who says pumpkin carving is just for kids. It is a great way to get in the spooky mood and maybe even do a competition to see who can carve the best pumpkin. 

You don't need to go to a fancy pumpkin patch there are plenty of reasonably priced pumpkins in Lidl or Aldi for the fraction of the price. 

Stargazing. 

During Autumn the evenings can be mild and darker earlier so a sweet idea is to get the blankets head outside and lie next to one another cuddling and looking at the stars. 

No strings.

Of course, some people just want to get intimate with no strings attached which are fine because we all have different needs. 

Check out nostringsdating.net  where you can meet like-minded people to keep you warm this autumn ;) 

Board games. 

A fun way to spend an evening is to just the old board games and get competitive to see who can win, it is great way to relax with one another and you will never know where the night will lead.....

Early night. 

In this day and age, we can spend time not on our loved ones but on the old screen. So why not take a night off and go to bed early with your partner and get cosy and cuddly in the sheets. 

It is great way to show you appreciate your partner especially if you ditch the phone to spend some quality time with them, I am sure it will but a smile on their face. 

Bath. 

Nothing is relaxing than sharing a bubble bath with someone you like and it is a perfect way to wind down for the night and feel cosy in autumn. 

What ways do you like to have dates with someone in the autumn time that doesn't' cost the earth? Love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.

Why it is good to date in your 40's and 50's. **AD**

Hey readers,

Being in your 40's can be an exciting time especially when you are participating in the dating game. Why you ask?... well let me tell you why. 




First off dating an older person in their 40's or 50's is a much more mature event compared to say a person dating in their 20's. This is because they have a lived a bit more and have a more mature outlook on life. The chances are they are more experienced and can treat you better.

As your older, you have achieved things that you don't have to worry about when you are older so less pressure such as having children. 

The likelihood is the individual will have older children, therefore, won't have to worry about childcare etc.

 So, there is not that pressure to get married or have children, therefore, dating when you are older is a much more relaxed affair. 

With age comes more awareness of who you are and gives you the confidence to be the person you want to be.

 You know what you want when it comes to doing dating and you know the kind of person you want to take on a date. An older person is more reliable in what you say because you have that confidence in themselves which again is something that is developed with age. 

Some people assume that older people give up once they reach an older age but that is not the case as websites based on over 40 dating
sites out there on the internet. Therefore this clearly demonstrates that there is a market for the older individual looking to date. 

The times have changed in this modern world where it was once deemed standard to date, settle down and have children in your 20's and that was for life then.
 Not any more as there is a lot of people aged 40's -50's who are wanted to date similar people like themselves. There are mnay reasons why people are separated in there 40s and 50s and they want a second go at the dating game and why not I say, life is about having fun after all. 

With age comes experience and that means that the individuals dating at an older age have already made mistakes and learnt from them. Plus with all trial and error situations, you learn what is right and what is not right for you so then again comes confidence in what you are doing. There is nothing more attractive than meeting someone who is confident and a person that you can rely on.

Dating when you are older could mean that you have the financial freedom to enjoy going out to restaurants and getaways. This, therefore, allows you that change to have a good time without worrying about how you are going to pay for it. 

I think the best tip for when you start dating is to smile, look interested and ask lots of questions. This gives the other person a sense that you like them and are interested in what they have to say. 

If you're in your 40's or 50's then a website to check out would be older-dating.com
where you can meet like-minded individuals like yourself.

How to be safe when dating in the BDSM community. **AD**

Hey readers, 

People have different tastes some enjoy traditional dating whilst others prefer more niche desires such as have certain fetishes like entering dominant and submissive relationships. 

This absolutely fine if both people agree and respect each other's wishes. On this post today I shall be discussing ways to be safe whilst dating a niche market on fetish dating.



1. Communication. 

 First port of call is to have communication between one another, knowing what each other wants and also where there is a line that draws where no means no. It is important to listen to one and other by showing respect to the decisions that a person has made. 

2.  Safe words. 

A suggestion that might be helpful is to use safe words that you both agree on should you need to use them and the person it is nothing and that they want to stop. Having that trust between one enough is important because it allows the individual to relax and enjoy themselves without the fear that something bad is going to happen. 

3. Take your time. 

Take it slow when you start dating someone new when it comes to dominant and submissive relationships. You need to get to know one another and also relax in each others company. That is key to making it a successful relationship so bother are happy and can both get pleasure without fear that something bad is going to happen. 

4. Limits. 

Limits are crucial because we all have them. Being clear to the person you are dating that this is soft limits where it is not concrete
that there is flexibility and may change over time. 
Hard limits are simply a no go area where you do not want to explore or be forced to do that makes you uncomfortable or not enjoy. Again it is going back to the communication and setting them clear batteries so each person knows exactly what they want.

5. Check-ins. 

I think check-ins are something that should be kept constant making sure that the individual giving something out is making sure that the other person is happy with the situation. Again it reinforced the idea of communication and making sure that the individual that is giving out knows where the person is happy, in pain or numb that they want to stop or change it some way.  

6. Physical.

It is also important to be aware of physical signs if the person doesn't look good in the sense that they are going to be sick or feel dizzy or into much pain. Then this is the time to stop and check everything is alright. 

7.  Gag. 

Gag safety can be hard to communicate verbally with safe words. So, something different would have to take its place when the individual is being gagged needs to let the other person know when it is too much for them. Some people wear something on the wrist that can make a sound when they jiggle it so that allows the individual given out the punishment to be alerted that the individual has had too much and they want it to stop. Alternatively using the three methods where three grunts or holding three fingers is a signal for the other person to stop now. 

There are plenty of good and trusted dating sites to check out such as subs-and-doms.com to meet similar like minded people.

Older dating why not?! **AD**

Hey readers,

Just because you are in your 50's doesn't mean you have passed your sell-by date. In actual fact, many over the 50's are living their best lives. Some are single and ready to mingle for whatever reason one thing is for sure that there are many 50-year-old people wanted to hook up with like-minded people.



In this modern world that we live in, there are many different types of dating that people choose and not always going onto long term relationships.

It is fair to say that some people simply just want a bit of fun with a like-minded person and why not because life is worth having a bit of fun.

 A great site is singleandmature.com and it does what it says on the tin. If you're looking for like-minded over 50's or even '60s and '70s then you need to check out this site.

 You can find people close by to where you live and can check out the map to hook up with someone. You never know where it might lead. Another good point to add is this website is a great stepping stone if you haven't been in the dating game for many years it is great opportunity to meet like-minded people who are looking for similar desires to yourself. 

Alternatively, you may look for one-off connections where you can meet people who are also simply just looking for one night stands. This website one night stands is a fab niche place to dip your toes into and explore like-minded people. 

At the end of the day, you don't have to commit to anything. You can simply just check out what is available and if you like someone then it is a winner. 

We live in a modern world now and life isn't always about long term relationships sometimes people just want some sexual pleasure with another person who has the kind of needs. 

There are some women who deem themselves as cougars where they like to meet younger men because that is what suits your lifestyle.

 Cougars don't need to rely on the money they simply just want to have a good time and there is a place for them. Cougar dating is a fine example of a safe place for certain women of age to meet men who desire a strong and liberal type women to have a good time together.

 They both get their needs met and you know what that is ok as long no one is getting hurt. 

However, when it comes to cougar sites it is not just younger men no older men to desire cougars so there are so much variety and choice at the fingers of the buttons. 

There are no rules when it comes to who and who you shelf date. People have different needs hence why there is many a type of dating preferences.

As I have outlined some above to show that variety really is the spice of life and though you may be older in age there is still an opportunity to have fun in life.

It's a causal thing **AD**


Hey readers,

Sometimes in life, we want a bit of fun? Some people just simply want no strings attached fun. This allows the person to enjoy some time together with another like-minded person but without the commitment where you are looking for casual adult dating.

 That is why if this is your thing you should check out this site called no strings dating . Sometimes, life can be stressful and that is why it is important to do something that you enjoy that is why connected to like-minded people is an awesome way to go because you know what is happening and that you ok with that. 



I know in the UK there is quite a taboo that sex outside a relationship is odd but sometimes people want and have needs that are just simply friendship and sex. They don't want to get tied down or they just want a bit of fun that is why sex dating sites have emerged. There is a selection of people that seek out to find like-minded people who want casual adult dating.

I think sometimes in modern society people assume that sex is linked to love which is not the case. We as humans have sexual needs and they may just be physiological rather than have the emotional connection. 

 Some people can be friends and have a sexual element in their relationship but they don't want it to be limited to a long term relationship which is absolutely fine if this is what you agree on. 

I think being more open and breaking down stigma can mean better quality of life. This then allows the person to get enjoyment without feeling ashamed or feared that you are viewed negatively because of your decisions of choosing a causal relationship. 

We need to remember that as an adult we can make our own decisions. We can choose what we want as long as it is not hurting anyone. If both parties are happy with the arrangement then go ahead and do what makes you happy because life to short to worry just embrace your designs and do what feels right for you.

 You have a choice to say yes or no and if you say yes then check out sex dating site to find similar like-minded people. 

Other times individuals have just come out of a relationship and don't want that commitment but just want a bit of fun. A fun thing to do is to check out dating sites because they give you a chance to meet the right sort of person for you especially. as we live in busy times and there is a lot more variety online for you to choose the best.

I know that some people who have had the no strings set up can actually change their mind and they may go more committed down the line where they have good friendships or even stronger have a more committed relationship, which is absolutely fine because life is never black and white and we can feel different at different times. You may get to know the person more and your views change and vice versa.

We Love Dates **AD**

Hey readers, 



In this modern age, it is more common to meet people through the internet. Dating online is so convenient when we are living in a busy world and meeting people especially as an adult can be tough so that is why free dating sites are the way forward. 






The beauty with internet dating is it allows you to have access to a more diverse range of people that may tickle your interest. The world is your oyster especially when it comes to online dating. 



What is better than online dating having a platform that is free and doesn't cost you anything and allowing you the opportunity to meet new people.  



We love dates is a brilliant WeLoveDates to check out if you want an easy way to meet new people. However, there is more to these dating sites as there are people who work at We Love Dates who can help match you up to the right person best for your needs and desires. 



Now as I sit here and consider what I would do if I would choose to be a professional matchmaker I would think about getting the right two people to connect with. 

I would not focus on perfection because we all know that doesn't exist. Sometimes you hit a hard rock in the journey of dating. I feel it is important to know that it is ok and to encourage the individual to stick at it even though they want to quit. 

Sometimes you have to take make mistakes to find the right person for you. It is a little known fact that mistakes are the best way of learning. 


I think when it comes to matchmaking you may think too much about the chemistry between two people but sometimes you just have to do it like Nike would say.

This is because if you don't test out you don't know where the baseline is. You will never know what success is if you don't try. At least if mistakes happen when dating you can learn and move forward with your journey. Just remember that a diamond doesn't start of polished and you need to work hard to reap the reward at a later date. 



I think to be a matchmaker takes a lot of dedication and you might know the individual you are helping more than my own partner. 

This is because of the lengths that I would go to make sure that the individual has the best chance to catch the right fish for them. 

It would be a big commitment to be a matchmaker because you need to get to know the individual. 

It is like a cheap therapy session potentially for the matchmaker and client especially if the individual has trauma from past experiences. 

They may naturally have anxiety especially with vanity apps such as Tinder. It can be hard so you have to learn to build the confidence of the person so that they can go forth and date. 


I think having a sense of humour and not taking the situation too seriously when being a matchmaker helps. 

This theory would help therefore ease the client and be more open with you about their needs and desires. 

I think having an open and honest communication when it comes to dating is key to get the best results for the individual.



I imagine that being a matchmaker is time-consuming and the key is being there for the client.

 Hey, you never know spending more time with a client can be more refreshing than having to listen to a boring chat with my husband. 
It would be almost like I am having an affair minus the sexual element. I would have to get to know the client well and make sure I was their personal Godmother being there for them through the roller coaster ride of the dating game. 

It is vital I imagine if I was a matchmaker being reliable for the person seeking love so that they know that they could trust me with their fate and happiness.

 I think if I had success with matchmaking it would make me feel like I am buzzing because I got a match right and I contributed to not just one but two peoples happiness and future.

It is a big commitment in which a big part of helping with this one wish that the person has in wanting to find that one special person in their life.

 I feel that matchmaking is a unique kind of job opportunity that can be challenging and rewarding in good measure and I am sure along the line I would also learn a lot about myself on the job.
