You may think dating and finding a man after 50 sounds like a nightmare and not something that you ever thought you would be doing. Well, there are plenty of people who fall into that boat.
If you haven’t dated for a long time or almost forever there is one thing that is currently in your favor.
Did you view online dating rather suspiciously and not something that the “ordinary” person would really want to do or perhaps admit to doing. It was something done by young people and it all seemed a bit weird and potentially unsafe. It all seemed like a bit of a novelty at the beginning.
Fast forward a few years and lots has changed. There are some excellent sites for over fifties online dating. There’s great written advice and in fact a whole slew of programs that can help you.
First things first though.
Finding A Man After 50 – But Now It’s Online
Once online dating become more mainstream there was a big curiosity factor. RSVP was one of the first online dating programs but even logging on seemed a bit hazardous. When you did (just to check it out) there was a ton of photos of people and profiles. It was still a bit of a novelty at that stage but clearly people were signing up.
Moving on through the years and you now hear of and know couples who have met their perfect match online and who are in loving relationships and perhaps even getting married. Or you hear stories of people going on dates and having relationships that may not have been long term but nonetheless were successful.
Okay so maybe there’s something in this.
Advantages of Finding A Man After 50
Advantage Number One
The thing is that with online dating there is a degree of anonymity. If you feel as though you are not quite ready, you can withdraw back into the depths of the keyboard and just venture out when you start to feel better. Honestly there is no one method that is going to work best for everyone.
You also need to consider that once people get to fifty they may not have children living at home but may have other unresolved issues, for example, the death of a partner, divorce, separation or family issues.
It is rarely going to be just brilliant from the get go, that is fairy tale stuff. There are experts in this field. One of them is Evan Marc Katz. Evan has been online as a dating consultant for years and and years and has millions of visitors to his site. His advice is practical and for a newbie to online dating, covers things that you just may not have thought of at all. There’s more information about Evan here.
Okay, so that is advantage number one, online dating is no longer as scary as it used to be and you can go gently gently until you gain confidence. Or you might be quite happy to just meet someone occasionally. Everyone’s needs are different. There’s lots of tips here for writing an online dating profile.
Advantage Number Two
Advantage number two to finding a man after 50 and this applies equally to men and women is that there is no biological clock ticking down in the background. This can be a significant factor for younger people. Not having this as an issue is a big plus.
Advantage Number Three
Another advantage of finding a man after 50 is that by fifty, you are so much more self assured. You know you have lost those hang ups of youth.
This is not self confidence, as you may feel you have none in regard to online dating. This is more about the “wisdom” (not keen on that word – reminds me of an old sage) that comes with maturity. You are far more “in charge” of your life. You have been there, done that. Looking for dating advice for over fifties? It all helps!
I did mention Evan Marc Katz earlier. Evan now has 9 million blog readers and 65000 newsletter subscribers. That is amazing but obviously he didn’t start out that way. Evan is now happily married with two children but he spent a long time in the dating wilderness. I can’t do justice to Evan’s story by paraphrasing what he has said but you can read it here. Evan has three different programs which all deal with different problems.
Here is a brief explanation of Evan’s programs.
