Of course you can meet and fall in love at any point in your life. But it requires dating. Finding a mate is like finding a job; it’s something you have to work at every day until you’re successful. However, getting back on the dating scene can be tough; it’s an interesting endeavor and the process is rarely straightforward, not least when you are passed the first flush of youth!
The Internet has made dating easier and much more fun. Several sites are tailor made for older singles. The key to making the most of online dating is finding a service that works for you. All you need is a current profile picture that shows you in your best light, answer some short questions and you’re ready!
So, what are the rules for “mature” dating? We have a little advice to help you feel more confident:
Start saying “yes.” Be more adventurous. Take friends up on all those dinner party invitations you’ve been dodging.
Flirt with men from your past. Social media has opened wonderful doors of connection, don’t be afraid to hook up with old high school friends. Also, go to reunions, it’s amazing how strong school ties can be. You’ll find out soon enough if they’re married or committed.
Own who you are. Confidence is attractive. You’re not 25 and you’re not supposed to look 25.
Meet in a public place and always let someone know where you are going.
Meet for something shorter than dinner. Go for coffee, maybe just hope for some lively conversation, nothing more than that.
Think about what you’re going to talk about. Talking about your ex or your kids… never a turn-on.
Step out of your comfort zone and date people you may not have considered in the past.
Be prepared to accept someone who may have some baggage.
Focus on having fun. A relationship should be filled with joy and laughter whether you’re
22 or 52.
Trust your gut. If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.
Don’t feel as if you have to rush into having sex. But if you do have sex, always be safe.
Don’t think that everything has changed sexually. What people get up to in the bedroom is still pretty much the same as it has always been.
Have patience with the process.
The desire to love and be loved has no age limit.
Could it be time for you to dip your toe into the water?
