She’s not afraid of being social, and might introduce you to a few good people if you get to know her. There are many advantages to meeting great single women over 50. Even if nothing romantic springs from a date with a woman who’s older, she may still turn into a fun contact for social events and a good friend who you can have a great time with. I read this article and my first reaction is “NONSENSE”.

The world of online dating can be intimidating — especially for women, and even more so for women of a certain age. If you’re new to online dating, or have only heard horror stories about dates gone wrong, you might be surprised by how fun, easy, and safe it can be to meet people via the web. Millions of happily-paired-off seniors have already reaped the benefits of the best dating sites for over 50 adults, and with the right information and approach, you can, too. It seems counter-intuitive to say that people characterized by one attribute — how old they are — don’t care as much about age when looking for a companion, but it’s true.

It was also easier to cross someone off of my list after 50 when I knew they weren’t marriage material! Life is short, and I knew what I wanted and wasn’t afraid to end a relationship that wasn’t good for me. I hear the same from women who come to us for help.

If the relationship is going well and you want to take it to the next level, be upfront with her about what you want. For example, you might mention an upcoming hiking trip you’re planning with your friends. If you’re working on a passion project, tell her a little bit about it. For example, “I’m really into classic sports cars. In fact, I’m restoring one right now. That’s how I spent my weekend.” Show her that you have manners and know how to treat a woman.

The reality is that I prefer to be around women that share similar life experiences to me. I am not interested in being around someone that grew up a decade or 2 after I did. Not only did they grow up in a different era but they are in a different stage in life than I am.

Online dating stinks

This is just slamming a dick when you have the chance. However, women tell me I am too short. But women in their 50’s are selfish brats. “For single men the options are plentiful.” Really? Actually, for some of us (I’m 53 and have never been on a date) there are not and never have been any options at all.

Men above the age of fifty must accept a set of difficult truths. Women, for the most part, have torn up and discarded their half of the social contract that has underpinned Western Civilization for 2,000 years. To the majority of women, men are nothing more than disposable commodities. Mark……that may be true overall, but there are still a few of us women out there who value a man for who he truly is.


Keep up the fight and the outreach. Something tells me there are millions of men like us. But the dating system is not built for us at this age. Talking about it together is a great step forward.

Sorting out matches is as simple as filtering your age group, narrowing the search by city, and delving into one of the many communities the site has. While you may want to join the senior singles community, there are other groups as well – such as divorced, Christian, gay singles, single parents, and more. If you’re a senior citizen looking to date, then you’ve most likely heard about

I’m just saying that back in my 30s women were more tolerant of a man’s flaws. I find it easier to strike a conversation with an attractive woman in her 30’s and 40’s. I take them to expensive restaurants, concerts etc.

Unless you can cite scientific evidence that supports your claim – think about it again. That’s quite a broad brush your stroking with. Frankly, it’s insulting to all women. It sounds like you and your wife were emotionally, worlds apart.

But I think a guys who is always looking for women much younger aren’t really worth being with as a contemporary anyway. I don’t even need a marriage again. I realize the idea of that type of commitment these days makes men like deer in headlights.
