But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any singles over the age of 50 out there looking to meet people!The reason I'm such a strong advocate for online dating is because I know it's the easiest place to meet single men over 50.Divorces, separations and the loss of loved ones can leave us feeling unsure of how to proceed and questioning whether we should at all.But it’s never too late to find love, companionship and happiness, no matter what your age is!This is where online dating services come into play.More and more singles over 50 are turning to online dating because it isn’t as intimidating as trying to meet people organically when you go out.
And even though procreation is off the table, I picked up clear signals from the women I met online that the meter is running, so it’s best to get on with things.
Here’s what I learned: If you’re looking for someone of similar interests and lifestyle, the more specific you can be upfront, the better. What was the last good book your read, or film you saw?
For instance, does “loves sports” mean you’re up for cross-country skiing and white-water rafting, or is it a declaration that every weekend is devoted to channel-surfing the pro and college games? Potential dates skimming your profile are more likely to respond to specifics.
Instead, write the list of qualities you want in a man.
Up until now, dating has been pretty straightforward.
You mingle with the single women (or single men) to find one that you are interested in, have someone introduce you to one another, chat over a drink and maybe ask them out on a date. Back when things were simpler it may have been that easy, but in today’s world it is a bit more challenging—especially if you are over 50 and are just coming back into the dating scene.
