Comment: Jack Spratt 8th November 2017: Great to see a video done by the owner or runner of a site rather than a faceless agency! Reply: Mike Barrett 9th November 2017: I hope that you do join the dating site Jack and this is a very interesting name that you have; Jack Spratt!
A dating guru has urged people not to date people who are considerably older than themselves as an easy get-out. Many of us will know couples where there is a big age differences and in many cases these relationships are working really well.
What Mila and I have said on many occasions is that it is not a good idea to introduce unnecessary hurdles into what is always a difficult proposition, finding a perfect partner or mate.
So perhaps the answer is to actively search for partners in your age range first and to exhaust all the possibilities before giving up and going for an older guy or woman.
They weren't deal breaking problems but they did upset the normal day to day life so if there is a next time to date then I will probably try to find a partner closer to my own age.

Free dating sites have their place but I have never got on with them.
I suspect that the answer to that is a resounding 'No' so why do we keep doing it? Free can be be good if you are really lucky but do you want to gamble with love, especially as it may be your last chance for it?
The good news is that this Buzz50 dating site is completely free to join, search, match and message so it won't cost you a penny until you are sure that it is for you.
