Dating site for women over 50
If you are at the beginning of your senior dating journey, you probably have several questions. I’d like to tackle the first of these questions – how to write an amazing senior dating profile that get’s you the attention that you deserve. Am I ready to deal with the emotions that will inevitably come as I get back into the dating game?One of my personal missions is to convince women my age that they do not need to be invisible.
It’s as though moving from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some kind of death-knell for a dating life.
Over the course of several months of online dating, I discovered that the pool of available older women is vast and diverse (as is true of men, although perhaps to a lesser extent) and that with a little effort, a reasonably intelligent, halfway-presentable person can usually generate some interest on dating websites. We’ve survived death and divorce, raised families, managed careers and built support networks of family and friends.
But I wasn’t the same single guy I was the last time I lived here. And I wanted to meet people, so I turned to internet dating as a way to meet eligible women.
I initiate contact with men in an age-range of about 3 years younger up to about 8 years older than myself.
The potential matches that the site sends me are age appropriate for me, but when I look at the age-range that those men desire, (usually 35-50) I often move past them, knowing I can’t compete with women in their desired range, even though many of those men are as much as 5-8 years older than me!
I'd say it's a pretty safe bet you didn't expect to be divorced, single and dating at this time in your life. And because a divorce judge didn't hand you a dating rulebook as you left the courtroom, you might be feeling pretty frustrated and overwhelmed with the 50 plus dating scene.
