Dating in your sixties
As we get older, the traditional ways of meeting a mate get harder and harder to find.
Meeting in college, at work, through friends, or at church have been the normal ways of meeting people, but as we get older, those methods are less and less effective, so that’s why online dating has become so prevalent.
I have several single girlfriends that I have hung out with the last 5 years since my divorce and it’s so nice to have other friends who are in the same situation to talk things over with.
They understand what it’s like to date at this age and try to find a good relationship out there.
Today’s post will be about dating in your 50’s and I’ll share my experience with it, since I’m sure there are many of you who are single and want to get out there dating again.
In fact, I’ve had plenty of emails from readers out there asking me to write about dating in older years, so I know it’s something of interest to a lot of you.
My life didn’t turn out the way I thought it would and I had NO idea that I would end up in my 50’s, single and dating again.It’s not the best place to be, but it is better than being miserable, I’ll tell you that.If you’re someone who got it right the first time and married the man of your dreams, had children, and now are enjoying your older years with the love of your life and grandchildren, well…. You can count your blessings right now that you’re not still out there, but you might get a kick out of reading this anyway.Online dating is for all ages now, younger to older and there are plenty of single folks out there at this age too. Given all that I’ve been through in life, I’m much more careful with how I approach dating now and as I’ve dated the last 3 years, I looked at all my dates as getting out there and being social and didn’t necessarily think they would all turn into something serious.You have to have an open heart and mind when dating at this age.
