Senior Dating

Age should never stop you from doing anything, especially dating. I understand that dating as a senior may be much harder because of the fact after a certain age people are married, gave up or even dead; sad to say. You should not let any of these things deter you from finding a soul mate.

Here are three simple tips aimed at single seniors ready to return to the dating world.

Maybe your spouse died, maybe a long-term relationship has ended, or maybe it’s time to re-enter the field after a hiatus. Whatever the reason for choosing to date again, it’s important to know yourself, said Pepper Schwartz, AARP’s sex and relationship expert. The University of Washington sociology professor said if someone has decided to become truly social again after an extended absence, maybe it’s best for them to join a club, or volunteer somewhere before stressing about finding a date. Being comfortable with being more social will help them ease into the larger world again. They can ask a friend to accompany them on social outings to instill more confidence. “The best way to do it, I think, is to get what younger people would call a ‘wingman’ or ‘wingwoman,'” Schwartz said.

We understand getting back to dating is hard and you do not want to hurt yourself, but by being too cautious could kill a potential partner/date. You need to ease up some and not seem as if you are shut down to getting to know people. You have to give everyone a chance first before you put up your roadblock.

When looking for a partner, you must think what you want. You cannot just be dating and not know what you are looking for. When you know what you are looking for, things will get easier. You will be able to stop wasting your time and other people’s time once you know what you want. This should be the first thing that you tackle before jumping into dating. Since you are older, you know what you want and it shows which makes a potential partner become more interested in you.
