More than 30 percent don’t even know where to begin and nearly 30 percent say they find it too stressful (think back to those sweaty palms and awkward conversations.) For more than 40 percent of respondents, other priorities are simply more important, and nearly one-quarter say it’s just too difficult to date when you’re 50-plus. That’s true whether you’re 16 or 56, but more than 40 percent don’t believe there is anyone “out there” to date.Believing you'll just know he's the right guy for you when he shows up Remember when you were a teenage girl with stars in your eyes when it came to boys? You didn't feel the pressure you feel today to find 'the one' on your first interaction together.
When you're tired or overwhelmed, do yourself a favour and take breaks when you need to.
And when you're feeling recharged, get back out there and start dating again because your guy is waiting for you to find him.
You didn't think twice about putting in the time getting to know each other before deciding...
Yes, I'd like to spend the rest of my life with this man. You go on a coffee date and before the coffee is even finished, you've figured out whether or not he's right for you.
In fact, nearly 60 percent say they make better decisions about compatibility now compared to when they were younger. Be the master of the segue if he talks too much, or the conversation swerves into uncomfortable topics. Show up to your dates open, happy and being your already charming self.
Some 42 percent have better quality dates, and 52 percent say part of the allure of dating in the 50s is the absence of the tick-tock of the biological clock. But every day I coach women like you through situations they wish they didn't get into. Make sure you get to talk about yourself in a meaningful way as well. It will bring out the best in him and insure that you both have the best time possible. I Love You, there is something valuable to learn from every date.
You don't play and you don't just hang with guys as friends like you did when you were younger.
In fact, when you make such a fast decision, you often miss a lot of guys who could have made great friends to hang out with, or possibly boyfriends if you'd given them the chance..you did when you were younger.
Next time when you meet a nice guy, spend time playing and having fun, seeing how you might fit in each other's lives.
