Most men who are back in the dating world and have been “off the market” for a long time (usually, married) know that how to date when you’re over 50 can be intimidating.
If you’re divorced or your sweetheart died (sorry for your loss), you’ll have some different things to consider.
Either way, the dating scene has probably changed since you were last in it and you may have to update a few things to find success.
The other thing you need to consider is if you want to be with someone your own age or someone younger.
There are pros and cons to both!
Younger women are usually more easy-going, playful and flexible. Older women have assets and can relate more in terms of life experience.
Younger women may want kids. Older women may have kids!
No matter what, women will expect you to be more bold and direct and all women will appreciate the same masculine traits:
Not too much to ask for, right? 😉
Other things you’ll need to consider are if you’ll ever get married again; how merging mature lives with assets will work; children: yours and hers; and death and who gets what (inheritance).
Not very romantic, I know.
There are also practical tips you’ll need to know if you’re dating in your 50s like…
How dated is your style? Are you overdoing the cologne? Does that 23 year old really like you or your fat wallet? 😉
And where to meet women when you’re in your 50s is another consideration.
Aside from meeting women in “the real world” there’s online dating dating options, but be careful — not all sites and apps are created for the mature crowd.
One thing for sure is that there are more options for men in their 50s and love IS still possible for you (again).
