Dating Over 50
Over 50s dating isn’t as unknown as you may think. Being over 50 doesn’t mean that your dating years are over – just that they’re about to get a whole lot better! Think of all the life experiences you’ll have to talk about and how you can compare stories with someone of a similar age. Not to mention you’re bound to have plenty of experience. It’s okay not to be settled down or to have maybe grown apart from someone, you still deserve to find happiness whatever age you are. Nobody should ever have to feel lonely and life can feel quite empty once all your children have grown up and flown the nest. It can be hard to get back out there when you get to a certain age but don’t for one minute think you’re past it. There’s hundreds of thousands of men and women in the same position as you, and it really is true that there is someone for everyone. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and back into the dating scene, thanks to the world wide web we have access to so many platforms and websites that can help us meet people, talk to people and gain the confidence to date.
There’s nothing wrong with being attracted to those younger than you, there’s plenty of fish in the sea who like someone a few years older than them too. As long as you’re both adults, you’re capable of making your own decisions about the kind of people you want to date. Maybe the more experienced individual is extremely attractive and vice versa. Cougar dating isn’t necessarily just for fun either, for a lot of couples it can be long term. Don’t let the stigma surrounding dating someone younger put you off from exploring it, besides, a lot of men need a more mature woman in their life to keep their head screwed on tightly. So many couples stay together, unhappily for years and years and it’s such a waste of precious time. Life is short and we should enjoy it whilst we can, so if a younger man is your cup of tea, you go girl. And of course younger males can also be easy on the eyes, not to mention how grumpy men can get with age…
Having Some Fun
You don’t have to be in it for the long haul if you’re over 50 and want to start dating. Maybe you just need some company on the occasional lonely evening, just like anyone else. As humans we crave connection but that connection doesn’t necessarily mean a fully committed relationship. Maybe you just want some one night stands. Provided you’re both aware of where you stand and you’re just wanting to have some fun, it’s completely and utterly normal. Some people do genuinely prefer to be alone and just can’t do the whole long-term relationship scenario, so sometimes something more casual is more suited to that lifestyle. There is no age limit for enjoying yourself and having a good time, so you get out there and live life to the full!
