Shared interest: finding like-minded dates

Mature Hearts Team Online Dating Tips

Mature Hearts caters for everyone over the age of 40 and this brings with it many benefits. As we mentioned in a previous article, you can narrow your search in a number of ways. For instance, if you’re interested in local dating and want to find someone near to you then you can do just that. Equally, if you’re looking for someone between the age of say, 70-90 then you can narrow down your search that way too. What this gives you is the flexibility to help you find people most relevant to your search. But it can also go a step further. In this article, we will look at some of the opportunities to search for people with a shared interest.

Shared interest options on Mature Hearts

The spice of life

This is where it starts to get interesting. Simply select the interest of interests that you want to search on and the list of members automatically updates.

If you’re interested in eating out then restaurants may be on your checklist. Then you can browse the profiles to see who likes the same food as you, has the same outlook such as enjoying trying something new and exploring new places to eat. Likewise, you might want to find someone who loves classical music. And this is a good place to start. You can then take a look through the profiles that are offered up to see potential kindred spirits.

If you decide that you want to get rid of an interest, simply uncheck the box and a new set of search results will show on the screen for you to look through. It is important to spend some time making sure you get this part right and don’t rush things.

However, one thing we always suggest is to be open to people that do have a slightly different take on your area of interest. Yes, part of life is to find someone who has a shared interest. But by opening yourself up to different aspects of an interest that you either hadn’t previously considered or didn’t think you liked, could offer new opportunities to learn and grow – and who knows you might also find romance along the way.
