Dating coaches take a more positive stance on dating after 60.
They explain that a change in mindset is essential for women over 60 who want to find romance.
Use the classic dating strategies: introductions through friends, blind dates, meeting through activities (work, recreation, religious, etc.), and plain old serendipity. Through them, you'll probably meet women who also enjoy them, women who might become friends — and eventually, maybe more. So the odds are in men's favor — and women know it. Try to correct misinformation, or at least be prepared to prove that you're not the escaped serial killer who shares your name.
Photos increase men's response rate 40 percent — for women, photos triple it! Beyond saying, "You're really cute and you live near me," you can add that like the woman you're contacting, you also play tennis and enjoy jazz.
Getting it right the first time was not the way life happened for me and I imagine for many of you as well.
I didn’t get the results of what I expected to get earlier in my life and life doesn’t always turn out the way we hope, dream, and plan.
Also, a lifetime of love and loss has made many women distrustful and unwilling to get back into the dating game.
It’s not the best place to be, but it is better than being miserable, I’ll tell you that.
If you’re someone who got it right the first time and married the man of your dreams, had children, and now are enjoying your older years with the love of your life and grandchildren, well…. You can count your blessings right now that you’re not still out there, but you might get a kick out of reading this anyway.
Here’s 10 things no one tells you about dating in your 50s. Men in their 50s like to complain They like to moan about the price of coffee in Starbucks, the parking, the traffic, the weather they had to fight through to get to the date…
In other words, they’ve had to make the effort to see you.
