News flash: According to AARP, almost 50% of people over 50 are single.
While I’ve been married for over 20 years (to the same man), many of my mid-life friends are divorced or widowed and are thinking about tip toeing back into the sometimes scary world of dating.
But, to put it gently . . . they’re rusty.
Back when you were in your teens or early 20s, you probably didn’t date all that much.
In an environment like high school or college, you were surrounded by men and women who were single and young just like you were. When you found someone, you hung out and really got to know each other before you fell in love and chose to marry.
Today, in 2014, it’s almost less common to find people who have never tried online dating than it is to find people who have. While I don’t think finding love on the Internet has the negative connotation it used to, there are still plenty of skeptics — and to those skeptics I say: just try it! I was once in your shoes! I once scoffed at the idea of creating a profile and messaging a stranger and meeting and then having to explain how we met.
We have optimized our product so that our users have enjoyable dating experience!
In 2006, after the death of her husband, Richard Carlson, Ph.D., author of the best-selling “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff” books, Kristine Carlson felt a loss that sent her on a healing journey through grief. From that experience, she created a grief support group and wrote a book about the grieving process called “Heart-Broken Open.”
Myth 1. The love of your life has to be your best friend.
Let’s get this straight right now. A man is not going to be your best friend. If he’s emotionally healthy, he is happy to be your greatest protector and he will willingly fix anything for you when he can. But he’s not going to get involved in long conversations about things he has no interest in.
It can be awkward to end a date with a person you don’t plan on seeing again. What are your parting words? How do you communicate finality? You don’t want to give false hope and let them believe you might call for a second date, but you also don’t want to flat out say: “Nice try, but this isn’t happening again.” That’s just cruel.
If you’re single and over 50, chances are good that either you want to date again, or your friends and family are after you to do so. In fact, the 50-plus set represents the fastest-growing group of Internet dating users, according to a study by Lehman Brothers. But how do you write a profile that attracts the right people for you?
Think nothing could be more stressful than going through divorce? Try dating after a split, which can be a major source of anxiety for recently-separated singles. Navigating the dating scene after divorce does involve getting out of your comfort zone — but it doesn’t have to be stressful, if you’re able to embrace a healthy mindset and follow a few basic dating rules.
