Don't go down that route for gods sake. I would say get out and about and join groups/classes. Online dating has too many pitfalls, ie: married men

I persisted with POF. Few flaky encounters, but I'm in a relationship now.

I think old is fine.
However my advice is to be confident within your own skin first.
Don't seek happiness through others.
Know your boundaries and stick to them!

There is a fabulous website but for the life of me i can't remember what it is called.
It was mentioned on here once.
The guy on there has been married and divorced and he basically says that everyone's needs/desires can be divided into 3 categories
Requirements
Needs &
Wants
It is the requirements that you absolutely must not compromise on the other 2 you can.

This helped me no end.
It helps you work out the things that really matter to you as opposed to the things you think matter.

Have fun with old and take it slowly.
