“I feel like I am just too darn old for this!”

senior manBelieve it or not that is a direct quote from an email I just received.  And I say NONSENSE!  I believe that people can and should have fun at every age – I certainly plan to!

And while it is good to find enjoyment in solitude, I think most would agree that the best fun comes out of spending time with people, and casual dating can be a wonderful enhancement to your life.  No one says you have to go out and remarry or get serious with someone – it’s entirely up to you to set the parameters of what you really want.

Mature Couple at the BeachYou are probably wondering what this topic has to do with senior dating, right?

Are You Ready for Senior Dating Yet?

I recently had an email from a senior dater about her online dating experience. While everyone who embarks on this journey will have their share of stories – good and bad – what struck me as particularly interesting was what she said about finding herself newly widowed, long before she even considered the online dating scene.

It occurred to me that before we can talk about picking a site, setting up a profile and considering all the “dos and don’ts”, we should look at this situation that many find themselves in and consider the major changes in our lives that eventually lead us to being ready for senior dating.

Senior Dating Conversation No-Nos!

senior-couple13Even though I have touched on this subject in previous articles, I want to talk about it again in a little more detail, as it’s so important!

Keep in mind you have probably been out of the dating scene for quite a while and you and your former partner probably shared the same feelings about politics, religion, family and finances – or at least you learned to live with each other’s differing opinions on the topics over the years.  Now it’s a whole new ball game.  You are in unchartered territory, meeting new people under new circumstances in a very different world.

Try to remember that in order to make a good first impression, it’s extremely important to keep the conversation light, and positive.  As the relationship develops, so too will a  comfort level with your new partner meaning that things will naturally be revealed in time about both of you.  Hopefully by that time, mutual feelings about each other will trump differences in opinion about politics.  But discussing these things too early in the game may spoil your chances of seeing where the relationship could have gone. You may decide to go on a negative rant about a politician and then you learn that your date was a major financial contributor to that campaign.  Oops! Read more…

Senior Dating Conversation Topics

So you’re all set for that first real meeting and you’ve planned to meet in a neutral location such as a coffee shop.  I’ve previously mentioned some conversation topics to avoid (though I’ll be going over those again in the next article) but you may be wondering what CAN you talk about?

Remember that you’ll both likely be a bit nervous, and it’s okay to break the ice by saying that or making a little joke about it. Say something like: “I haven’t been this nervous since I went on my first date when I was seventeen!” Read more…

How to Know When You Are Being Scammed – Part Two

senior-women-datingThis is a continuation of last week’s article How to Know When You Are Being Scammed – Part One.

This week I want to talk about a few other warning signs that indicate that your potential date may not be genuine. Here are some other red flags you should be aware of:

(1) Resistance to allowing you to call their home or telling you not to call at certain times for what seem like odd reasons. If this becomes a consistent pattern, you must consider the possibility that they may be married and that you’re being considered for a fling on the side. Read more…

How to Know When You Are Being Scammed – Part One

Scam artists are everywhere nowadays. And while everyone is at risk, seniors can be a major target.  It seems that you only need to pick up the newspaper or watch the news to hear about the latest financial scam and it’s something that has become an unwelcome part of modern life.

senior woman on computerSo what does this have to do with a dating site you ask?

Unfortunately, the anonymity of the internet makes it a perfect place for con artists to hide their real intentions while trying to entrap their victims under the guise of romantic interest.

Don’t get me wrong, the vast majority of members of reputable dating sites (both paid and free) are legitimately looking for a sincere match, but there are red flags that you should look out for when embarking on the journey of online dating for the first time. By-the-way these rules apply to anyone of any age! Read more…

5 Easy Steps to Health and Longevity

healthy-seniorsMost of us have known a friend or relative who seemed to break all the rules when it came to health and get away with it. Everybody seems to know an Uncle Fred or Auntie Mary who smoked like a chimney, ate nothing but white bread and jam and lived to be 100.

But the truth is that the little choices we make each day can make a big difference to our health and quality of life – particularly in our senior years. Read more…

Senior Dating Made Easy.

I started this site as a resource for the many older women and men who are seeking love and companionship in their golden years. Every day, thousands of senior people meet other mature adults through the senior personals but for many of them, it’s their first online experience and they don’t know where to begin.

For some, whether internet savvy or not, the idea of beginning a new relationship through a senior dating site is completely uncharted territory. There can be many natural concerns to overcome, especially if you find yourself single again after the death of a spouse or divorce later in life. But fear not, help is only a click away!

You probably know about the big online dating sites. You may have even browsed the online adult personals, but you might not be aware that there are also hundreds of senior sites dedicated specifically towards helping older singles find relationships.

Some of the best seniors personals sites have tens of thousands of members which means it’s easy to find people in your area around the same age, as well as younger women for older men and older women for younger men. The world of online senior dating is truly your oyster. You can choose the type of person that you’re looking for and we’ll help direct you to the best sites to find them.

As a general rule, online senior dating sites cater to men and women over fifty, but I regularly get emails from mature sexy women who are dating younger men in their forties and even younger! While many of my readers are women seeking older men, I’ve also noticed a growing number of younger men who are dating mature women because they want to find someone to spend the rest of their lives with and they know that there’s no substitute for maturity and experience.

If you’re new to the world of senior dating, then I hope you’ll find this site useful as we talk about the many benefits of older dating. Whatever your age and life experience, you can find someone out there who’s right for you and I hope to help guide you on your quest to find your perfect senior date.
