Dating Etiquette for Seniors

“Sometimes dating seems like you have placed yourself in a foreign land with unfamiliar rules.”
By Alex Glover May 6, 2020
Sometimes dating seems like you have placed yourself in a foreign land with unfamiliar rules. Though there are some common dating etiquette rules that would help you in any situation.
Age is not that important in senior dating. When you like each other and match with each other perfectly, who cares whether you are 16 or 60? However, adult people understand relationships differently than adolescents, that is why it's so important to have special dating etiquette that would correspond to yours and your partner's life values and preferences. Read these simple dating etiquette rules and go on a date with no doubt! 
 

Be yourself and reveal the mask


Make sure a person likes you for who you truly are. It is hard for a dating partner to appreciate you fully if you are not completely honest about yourself. Removing your mask will ensure your date is more enjoyable and comfortable and will build your relationship on trust.
 

Leave old relationships in the past


It’s normal to be curious about your past relationships, but don’t rant constantly about past partners. Bringing up the past could make your partner feel like he or she does not measure up to those with whom you had relationships in the past. Focus on the present and on the person you are dating now.

Pay attention to the body language


Evaluate your body language and be mindful of those considered negative. Crossed arms, not maintaining eye contact and turning up your nose can make you appear not interested in your dating partner. Do not risk misinterpretations and try to use body language that is open and friendly and makes you appear interested.
 

Avoid negativity and stay positive


Be aware of your speech in everyday conversations. Part of dating etiquette is having a positive outlook towards yourself and others. Positive people are more fun to be around and make their dating partners feel secure and unafraid of being secretly judged.
 

Be inclusive


If you have been dating a person for more than a month, include your partner's family in your plans. In addition, always keep in mind that your partner has a family she would like to spend time with and you will have to compromise when it comes to family event-planning and traditions.
