Women Over 50 And Ready To Date?

Psst Read On…

Dating advice for women over 50 appears to be in short supply even though it’s a scary prospect when you are hitting midlife to have to enter the foreboding world of dating again.

Most relationship advice is aimed towards the younger males and females and the over 50s are left to feel they are competing with females much younger then themselves. Young women who haven’t been through the mill of life yet, who haven’t had children and so do not wear the scars and telling signs they bring with them.

It’s not all doom and gloom though and if a mature woman is able to get over the feelings of insecurity her age may give her when considering dating again, she can be successful. It is important that she focuses on some of the positive things she can bring to a new relationship and this will help her confidence a lot.

One of the most appealing features mature women can bring into a relationship is self awareness. Usually by the time we hit our 50’s we pretty much know who we are and what we want out of life.

In turn this self awareness means we know what we want from someone else too, we know exactly what we want and what we don’t want!

Some of the best dating advice for women after divorce is the simplest and that is to relax and enjoy the process of dating and meeting new men.

Notice Dating Red Flags:

Are They Deal Breakers?

Now red flags are something that do crop up when looking for dating advice for women over 50.

These dating warning signals are mostly all the same as those that younger people need to look out for there are one or two exceptions.

There does appear to be a certain type of male who preys on older women, he is the same type of male who preys on single mothers dating. In his mind he equates children and age to desperation.

Often this type of male will have sociopathic traits but they may be difficult to pick up on instantly because these men can often be very superficially charming to begin with.

Ask Questions About Their Past Relationships

It would be wrong to say anyone significantly younger than you is up to no good, lots of younger men genuinely enjoy older women’s company but the key here is to take your time. Ask questions, and ask the same question a few days later, make a mental note if they give you the same answer.

Ask about work, their family, their history. You don’t need to make it sound like the Spanish inquisition but these are questions you need to know the answers to.

Maintain Your Standards About Men And Relationships

Possibly the best dating advice for women over 50 would be not to let age force you into lowering your criteria. You have a lot to offer someone so keep reminding yourself that, you do not simply have to settle for whatever comes along.

Another idea is to ask you male acquaintances and family members and get some dating tips for women from men. Finally take your time, it’s tempting to feel the clock is against you when you are looking for a companion in life.

It is ok that you take your time choosing the right life partner and hopefully this is a process you won’t be going through again.

As a 57 year old woman, I have felt a lot of anxiety about dating. My mind tells me, your too old, it’s too late, just be okay with living the rest of your life alone. But another part of me wants a loving relationship. I know that my attitude is not helping me, just not sure how to stop the anxiousness.

Hi Mirela, I totally get what your feeling. It is hard to get past our issues and re-build our self esteem at this point in our life. But you have to challenge yourself to grow and move beyond your fears and judgments about yourself. It really comes down to not wanting to be rejected and that’s part of what’s stopping you. What you want to do is make finding a loving relationship more important than being anxious about dating. Just take one step at a time and soon your worst fears will become less important.

Thanks for your genuine advice. Asking question about his family, work and history is really very important. You should know what is going in your partner’s life. But the timing is important as you have said. Anyway I think your advice and suggestions would definitely help women who are going through this phase of life.

Thanks for your support on this topic. You’d be surprised by how many women know very little about the man their dating, and get blind sided when they find out he’s not who they thought he was.
