Start Dating after age 50

Dating after age 50

Most of that age-old advice is as pertinent as ever: Be yourself, smile, keep an open mind, and be honest.

Dating is still about getting to know someone, taking the time to see if you connect spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and physically. From early on, be intentional about showing real interest in the other person and getting to know one another as transparently as possible.

Talking about sex is no longer taboo; expect to have these conversations fairly early on in a new dating relationship. Involve your family as much as you feel comfortable, but expect that the politics of death and divorce might have some of them feeling uneasy about you seeing someone new.

Note: With the greater prevalence of STDs today, even postmenopausal women should insist on protection during sexual activity. Don’t expect everyone to understand; instead, stand up for yourself with gentleness and grace in those situations. You can still be vibrant and youthful in your fifties and sixties and beyond. Volunteer, take classes, go to church, and spend quality time with good friends.

To put yourself at ease, it’s ok to focus on finding companionship, at least at first.
