Dating advice for women over 50 is more important than you may realize.

If you are re-entering the dating world because of a divorce or the death of a spouse then you will want to get clued into the challenges before taking the leap.

The world has changed from when you were younger and dating. Today, as a divorced senior woman dating, you will want to learn what you need to do to be safe and successful.

First and foremost, empty your mind of everything you think you know about dating and meeting good men over fifty.

Keep you common sense in tact, but all your other beliefs and attitudes about mature women dating should be erased from your mind.

The best dating advice for women over 50 is to keep yourself safe when meeting new men.

This means as a senior woman dating you’re vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases.

For some women, this is often a somewhat new concept. You may be unaware of the many different STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), the symptoms of those diseases and how to protect yourself against them.

It is imperative to remember you must always practice safe sex.

You can’t afford to leave anything to chance when engaging in sexual activity at this point in your life. As a woman dating after fifty, you should never feel pushed to jump in the sack with a new partner.

Dating and relationships always come with issues and circumstance. Both people in a relationship bring their own unique set of beliefs and baggage.

By midlife most people have had children, ex-spouses, former in-laws, mortgages, and possibly even health problems that could impact a budding relationship.

The dating advice that I give women over 50 is that you need to be aware of what baggage you bring to the table and how that could impact any potential partner. These are issues that may need to be worked out in order to move forward with a would-be mate or partner.

Senior women dating guidelines are very different from what younger single women would need to deal with. I always recommend that before you even put your toe in the water of meeting men you need to set ground rules for your particular situation.

As an example, if you have teenage children or even young adult kids get clear on their issues with you dating a new man and be clear on what you expect from them in terms of support.

The ground rules for yourself could include things like whether you would consider bringing a man home to spend the night with you if you still have children living at home.

Get clear on when you might introduce a man you have been seeing to your children or other family members.

What I want to stress is that it is of great importance to get your boundaries and rules in place around handling all the circumstances related to dating.

You will want to do this before you enter into that phase of your new life. If you wait to deal with these issues and try to work through these things while you are dating it will be stressful and you will make some bad mistakes.

When it comes to dating advice for women over 50, you will find that it is very helpful to have a strategy and a dating action plan in place to get started on the right foot.

There are successful ways to meet the type of men that are best suited for you but it takes some homework and planning. Dating men over 50 should not seem like a mystery, it is just different.

Women should not be scared when they want to date someone but of course as a woman you should be careful. There are a lot of dating sites in the web but choose the best.

Thanks Kathy, I believe that most women have not had good experiences with online dating and they need to be very careful and alert if they choose to use online dating as a way to meet men. All online dating sites have the loser’s liars and married men on their site. Bottom line is online dating sites are a breeding ground for the bad guys. And yes of course there are some decent men online as well.

I am over 50, but really scared to date. But after reading your post I think I can go for it. The safety strategies you have mentioned are very true and will help me feel better about my own safety. I can see that setting the rules and boundaries in your life are very important, especially when dating at this stage of my life.

Hi Pamela,I want you to know that most women who re-enter the world of dating are scared. When you’re over 50 and wanting to date but feel like you are clueless it can feel scary. Just use your common sense and always think about your safety first and you’ll do just fine. It’s like everything else in life, you have to take the first step and the next step after that and so on.
