Dating Over 50 Doesn’t Have To Be Dull

Sometimes it may feel like the pool of single and dateable people over 50 is so small that it’s almost nonexistent, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! Dating over 50 has actually never been as great and abundant as it is now! This could be, in part, thanks to the high divorce rate these days. But, since one man’s trash is another man’s treasure; this is great news for the single and looking!

One of the best depictions of dating over 50 has to be the movie ‘As Good As it Gets’ with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. Along with the fact that it touches on the things that are a part of being of a certain age, it also offers and endearing and hopeful reminder of how love has no age cap—and the Viagra scene is hysterical! I’m just sayin’.

The biggest problem when it comes to dating as we get older is not only that we feel like there aren’t any good ones available but we also let our past experiences get in the way. It’s not hard to become somewhat jaded about love and dating after having ‘been there and done that’ what seems like a billion times over. We also tend to become less patient as far as dating goes because we’ve finally grown up enough to have a clear idea of what we want and no patience for games and settling for anything less. This actually leads me to my suggestion as to how to go about meeting new people; online dating.

Please don’t cringe! Online dating is actually not the nightmare that you may have unfoundedly convinced yourself it is. As a matter of fact, that’s probably where all of the great 50 plus crowd is which is why you’ve been having trouble finding them! *grin* Think of how much easier it will be for you to find someone if a whole pile of other single and dating over 50 people are in one place and ready for the pickin’? Online dating sites allow you to find people over 50—or under if that’s your thing—all in one spot and from the comfort of your home. And since you get to search according to your preferences, it helps to weed out the undesirables so you don’t have to waste time on people who you don’t have any interest in. Also, dating sites come in all shapes and sizes, meaning that they include those that cater to all ages looking for all kinds of relationships as well sites that are age or even religion specific. There are even sites dedicated to dating over 50 and even divorced or widowed dating which is a sad possibility and reality as we get older.

The options are endless and far from dull when it comes to dating over 50—even if you are jaded, impatient and a little pessimistic! So get out there and give it a try! You’ll be tickled pink by what you will find.
