'Part of living young is looking for partners to enjoy life with.' A new world: tips to live by Create a separate email address for online dating. Be cautious about how much personal information you share --- scammers can use it to create false identities. Never include your real name, workplace, regular email address, work or home address, phone number or birthday in your profile. Don't rush in --- spend time getting to know somebody online and ask plenty of questions before you meet them. When you meet somebody for the first time, pick a public place, tell a friend where you're going and keep the meeting brief and inexpensive. Don't let someone new collect you or drop you home. If you decide to have further contact with somebody, use a mobile phone number, not a home number. Never transfer money or give out your credit card or bank details to someone you've met online. Source: Choice (choice.com.au) One in five people looking for love on Australia's biggest dating website, RSVP, is aged over 50. There is such a strong interest from older Australi- ans in meeting online that RSVP launched an Over 50 & Fabulous group this year. "This group is very much enjoying life and at a great stage in their life and they are living young," says Glenis Carroll, general manager of RSVP. "Part of living young is looking for partners to enjoy life with. They're not necessarily looking for 'the one' anymore, but they're looking for people who can do things with them, enjoy their hobbies and interests with them, much more so than a younger person who would be looking for the person who they may spend the rest of their lives with." In a recent survey, the three top things Baby Boomer men were looking for in a partner were personality, sense of humour and sexual chem- istry. Women identified morals, manners and intelligence. RSVP's search criteria aimed at over 50s allows members to search for information that sheds light on the lifestyles and living arrange- ments of other people on the site. Over 50s can ask, for example, whether other members live alone or with other family members, such as dependent children or elderly parents, if they are still working, preparing for retirement or no longer working, and whether they exercise regu- larly, occasionally or prefer a sedentary lifestyle. "Our members aged over 50 years ... have very different dating preferences compared to young- er singles," says Carroll. "They know what they want and what they don't want, and they know what they're prepared to compromise on and what they're not prepared to." Recent RSVP research undertaken by Nielsen shows 75 per cent of all Australians aged over 51 consider having a serious relationship important. Online dating is the third most popu- lar way for Australians to meet partners, behind being introduced by friends or family, and meet- ing at interest-based clubs or teams. However, the search for love is not without its complications -- especially for those heading back into the dating game after being married or having had the same partner for many years. Research by Family Planning NSW, supported by RSVP, found that women aged over 40 are less likely to use condoms with new partners than their younger counterparts. Dr Deborah Bateson, medical director of Fam- ily Planning NSW, says recently single women can be more likely to engage in unprotected sex because "it may have been many years since people have had to think about those things". Following a rise in sexually transmitted infec- tions in over-50s, Family Planning NSW is spreading the message of safe sex to women over 40, telling them: "Safe sex is an easier conversa- tion to have with your clothes on." The health promotion campaign, titled Little Black Dress and in part designed by a group of 76 older women, targets the "pre-condom gener- ation" and encourages women to take the lead in using condoms with new partners. Communication is key, says Bateson. ''You've got to be able to feel comfortable about commu- nicating with your partner."
