Many people scrolling through the site do not look further than this, so it really matters. As a woman, you have to lie about your age because most men are looking for younger women. I'd recommend telling them the truth if the relationship develops, in case you end up with a second 50th birthday, like one woman I know.
My Single Friend was founded in 2004 by TV presenter and property extraordinaire Sarah Beeny, who is notorious for setting her single friends up.
She had the ingenious idea of being able to describe all her single friends online.
Just like having a virtual wingman by your side, it takes the hassle and stigma out of dating and paints a better picture of you as a person.
Your friends can even recommend other singles on the site to you, and it doesn't matter who starts the process - your friend can add you, or you can join up and simply give us your friend's email address.
The truth hurts, but the sooner you suck it up, the more successful you will be.3.
