I know it feels great after a long day at work to snuggle up with a good book, your fave TV show or your cat or dog for some unconditional loving. Of course, its nice to think of having a rich handsome man sweep you off your feet but what you really want is a man who is going to be there for you through the ups and the downs of this journey called life. There is no doubt about it, without the right skill set and support in place, dating can be hard.But you need exposure to men, whether in person or online and its not happening if this is your nightly routine. I teach women all the time how to create a Finding Love after 50 Dating Blueprint that gives them their next step for finding love because I know how easy it is to get bogged down by all there is to know about dating at this time in their life.I made plenty of bad choices along the way and it didn’t go the way I wanted it to go, but the blessings aren’t over yet, nor is life over yet.
We have all heard about how easy it is for a man to start dating in his fifties and how there are plenty of women to choose from. Early 30’s and never been married – these women must have “daddy issues”.
Their desire to be with men 15-20 years their senior means they are looking for someone to take care of them both financially and personally.
It’s not the best place to be, but it is better than being miserable, I’ll tell you that.
If you’re someone who got it right the first time and married the man of your dreams, had children, and now are enjoying your older years with the love of your life and grandchildren, well…. You can count your blessings right now that you’re not still out there, but you might get a kick out of reading this anyway.
Lastly, peek at some pointers on how to have great “first-time” sex. Many people just dash off their online profile, but that’s a really bad idea.
The profile is what people ponder when they’re interested enough to spend a little time deciding whether to contact you or return your contact.
A big obstacle to finding love after 50 happens when you're NOT putting yourself in places where you can be seen and found by available men on a DAILY BASIS! What man doesn't love improving his golf swing and now they can do it year round at indoor and outdoor driving ranges. Men are there checking out books and movies every day. All you have to do is make sure you're in places where the two of you can meet. Have a vision that is too narrow when it comes to the kind of men you are willing to date.
Men can't find you when you're hiding every night at home. Ask most women what they want in a man and a type similar to Richard Gere's character in "Pretty Woman" comes to mind. Having been spoon fed on fairy tales as a little girl can jade you to who a great guy might be- often giving you unrealistic expectations of who "Quality Men" really are. Stay open to dating all kinds of men with all kinds of looks, backgrounds, and interests as long as they are economically self sufficient, meaning they can hold their own and won't be financially dependent on you. Give up on dating after one or even five bad dates!
Nevertheless, you still may need help navigating the dating and relationship world.
