How do you feel about being single when over 50?
Are you dating? and what do you think the challenges are?
The older I get the more things still appear to be the same. I have found out that age does not define me. I am 58 and still feel as if I am in my 20s. The men that I meet are in the same generation and that is good.Both of us have something sagging, lost a few teeth, can't see, hair loss and let us not talk about all that gray hair. I was in a short term relationship with a man that went well although we are no longer a couple. Men are easy to find but a good man, now that's where you might need to do a little digging. I always remembered that when someone shows you who they are believe them and believe me that statement has remained true.The biggest challenge in dating is getting past the jerks, that's right old men/women can be jerks too. If they were a cheating fool in their youth it doesn't change simply because they got old. So I guess for me it is more about finding a good man.But in the mean time I am going to enjoy life as well as the dating scene. I am sure that mr. right is out there somewhere but there is still a ton of fun to have until he comes along.
It's been said that 50 is "the new 40". :-)
In all honesty the "baby boomers" have never approached getting older the way previous generations have. In fact AARP membership is declining rather increasing. The "baby boomers" have a positive youthful mindset as they go to work out at the gym, eat better, look for ways to remain active, pursue new careers or strive to continue to climb in their present career. Rather than stay in unhappy marriages they are willing to move on to seek out their ideal mate. Better career options and higher pay for women has made them less financially dependent on men. In fact many of them see being (single) as being (free). Dating sites have given the 50+ an alternative way of meeting others. In past generations once one hit age 40 and beyond they felt too old to make the nightclub scene or enroll in college courses with the agenda of meeting someone. Gradually their dating options dwindled with each passing year.
Online dating has made it possible to meet others in the comfort of your home. You can move as fast or slow as you want in getting to know someone or meet them in person. It's important to remember that dating is not a "job". It's suppose to be about having a good time and getting to know others. The same challenges remain in all dating scenarios where strangers come together. You want to meet someone who wants what you want at the given time and moment, shares your same values and interest. Awhile back I wrote a hub offering tips to women. http://dashingscorpio.hubpages.com/hub/ … ine-Dating
