Dating Over 50
Getting Back to Dating After Fifty

Many middle aged people are pretty scared of getting back into dating. We tend to look in the mirror and see our flaws. It is hard to believe that there is somebody else out there who will meet us, and ignore the fact that we do not look like we are thirty any more. But now we have other virtues. We should understand more about relationships than we did at 30.

It is a great time to start over because we can handle dating and relationships in the way we should have handled it when we were younger! It would be great to have the body, face, and skin of a 30 year old, but would we trade that for the things we have learned? Superficial judgemets do not equal long term contentment.

Find Dating Sites for Older People

It used to be novel, but now online dating websites are normal. So many people have met their matches on a website that is is not even unique these days. One very popular website claims that 2 percent of US marriages are from meetings on their own site. And that is just from one website!

Online dating has some advantages. You can chat and email some potential new dates or friends without jumping in with both feet. You can also do some looking at your own convenience, and that makes it easier to fit some dating into your busy schedule.

I have spoken to many online daters who really enjoyed themselves. In fact, many told me that the only bad thing about finding a new relationship was that it was tough to leave all of the other new online friends they had flirted with.

The New Old Fashioned Way to Meet People

Consider activities that you enjoy now, or that you used to enjoy. Lots of us gave up some of these because we got too busy with our ex spouses and kids. Consider ways to get involved again, and this can be a great way to meet new people who like the sames things you do.

Getting involved can make you happier. You will have things to look forward to, meet new people, and make friends. Friends who like the same things that you do can be great potential dates. Even if you do not meet Mr. or Ms. Right, it will hardly be a waste of time.

How to Find Activities and Groups

Look for meetup groups in your local area. There is a website called which lists all sorts of groups. These range from professional interest to movies to dining out. This is a fun way to get out, and it really isn’t scary. The groups want more members, and you should find something that interests you.

Volunteering is also a great way to meet new people. You can help society, feel good about yourself, and also make new friends this way. Volunteer opportunities are everywhere. You can support a candidate, help stock a food pantry, or tutor kids at your local school.

You also need to relax. You know that you should take this slow. I think you should just start by trying to make some new friends. After all, that’s what we really want isn’t it? We just hope one of those friends turns into more than a friend.
