So you are over 50, and ready to get back in the dating game, and unsure where to start. Well, it’s nice to meet you! That’s what I’m thinking, and now it’s time to get others to feel the same way. In today’s busy world, you can meet and date men online or through traditional direct contact. While you may have more experience or feel comfortable with one way over the other, you may chose to use both methods initially to determine which yields the best results.
In its infancy, online dating seemed to be something people did secretly with a degree of trepidation, and with good reason. Married people posed as singles, paupers posed as millionaires, and creeps posed as decent dating potential. While you still have to be wary and exercise good judgment, online dating has come a long way in the last few years.
In fact it’s the hottest thing going for singles 50 and older today. Match.com reports 25% of its members are between the ages of 50 and 65, with Boomers in particular growing a whopping 89% in the last five years. Additionally, eHarmony.com reports that Boomers are the fastest growing group among its 33 million users worldwide. A plethora of online dating sites, such as Our Time, Third Age Dating, Mature Singles Only, Senior Match, and Christian Mingle, just to name a few, have capitalized on this statistic by specifically targeting older singles.
Every woman who has met the man of her dreams online, first created a dating strategy that not only guaranteed the best matches but also helped her recognize red flags. As your personal dating expert, I recommend that you:
- Represent yourself appropriately when writing a profile.
- Be authentic.
- Provide a recent photo.
- Determine when and how to make physical contact.
- Carefully consider safety and privacy.
When you want to sell your house, you turn to an expert, a real estate agent, who will know how best to position your property to maximize its advantages to appeal to your target market. I am your expert, your coach, in the dating world, and together we’ll work to present you to your potential suitors in your best light.
Of course, you can also explore the variety of ways to meet and date men through more traditional avenues. When you get out into your community and enjoy learning or doing something new, you might just meet Mr. Right.
- Join a club aligned with your passion like a book club, card club, the Elk’s, nature conservancy, or wine lovers.
- Volunteer at a favorite charity, for a political campaign, or at church.
- Take a class on cooking, adult continuing education, or dance.
- Join a group specific to your interests like exercise, travel, hiking, skiing, or photography.
- Get a dog or take your dog to a dog park or dog-related functions to connect with other dog owners.
Remember as you continue on your journey, dating is a fun and wonderful experience that helps you discover what you like and don’t like in a partner, as well as your own values and needs.
