Maybe you have been without someone special in your life for a while.
Whatever your life story is, let us assist you in finding that special someone, from casual daters to serious singles.
Most people want to find a friend or a life partner, and to meet the dates who may fulfill this desire, many 50-somethings, about 80 percent in fact, do it the old-fashioned way — through friends or family. Dating after 40 or 50 means taking control of your love life, just like you do the rest of your life. Baggage bonding is when an early date shifts into deep conversation about some baggage you have in common. You start comparing your horrific ex-spouses or your crazy awful dates. Men know who and what they want, often better than we do. The last thing you want at 55 is to wake up in the morning with flashbacks to your days as a 20-something, right? His manners, his shirt, his smile, the way he talks about his kids. If he walks away from the date having shared too much or hasn’t learned about you, then there won't be a second date.
It means being kind to yourself and the men you meet. I have compiled a list of Dating Do’s and Don’ts exclusively for women like you. These are for the woman who is done repeating the same mistakes, and is ready to find her grown-up love story. It starts off innocently with a question like “So what happened with your marriage? Nothing positive can possibly come from this, sister. Yes, I know he said he was going to call you, I know you had a great date and want to see him again. That’s especially true of the grownup men that you’re dating. Unless you can talk with your dude about safe sex and the status of your relationship after intimacy, steer clear of the sack. Start off with the positive and try to stay in mode before you decide he’s not right for you.
When you decide to join one of these sites, you’ll wonder why dating hasn’t always been this easy. You are well established in your career, you have a good idea of what you want (and don’t want) in a partner, and you don’t have to worry about finding someone who you can build a life with.
Now, you can search for someone that you can share that life with, which is so much better!
More than 48% of people over 50 turn to online dating for a serious relationship, 26% for friendship, and 14% for casual dating.
That’s true whether you’re 16 or 56, but more than 40 percent don’t believe there is anyone “out there” to date.
As to the “why” behind the lack of date-nights, nearly 60 percent say they don’t need a relationship to be happy.
More than 40 percent said they were considering it, but not actually doing it.
In fact more and more mature men and women are turning to online platforms as a viable way of meeting new people.
At Elite Singles we aim to make over 50 dating as smooth and accessible an experience as possible.
