Dating Advice For The Older Woman

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

Dating as an older woman will take extra consideration to find a good mate and plan a great date. From finding a suitable partner to going on the actual date, here are some simple tips that will help you out.

Find An Appropriate Site

If you are wanting to date someone your age, be sure you sign up for a site that caters to your generation. This will allow you to browse appropriate profiles without worrying about being bombarded by requests from those only interested in dating an older woman because they are older. While the Cougar phenomenon has spread globally, this may not be your cup of tea.

Dating Younger Men

Many women are looking to date younger men. They are more active, more vibrant, and bring youth to the situation. If you choose to go this route, you must understand that no matter how mature they act, there is always going to be an age gap. This gap can create issues with life views and maturity levels. Be realistic. You won’t find a handsome younger guy who has the life experience you do.

You Hold The Cards

Don’t allow yourself to feel pressured when on a date. If the man is acting too aggressive, or is just rude, you need to let him know you will not tolerate this. After all, it’s completely your decision if you want to finish the date and pursue more. Many younger men think that older women want someone who is aggressive. If you let them know up front that you aren’t looking for that and they cross a line, don’t hesitate to get up and walk away.

Dating Advice For The Older Man

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

Dating as an older man can be frustrating. Most of the dating sites are marketed towards the 20 or 30 something crowd, and there aren’t many singles events that someone older than 30 would really feel comfortable at.

Finding Dates

Finding people your age will be much easier if you know where to look. You can find plenty of online dating sites that cater to those in their 40s, 50s, or 60s. This is a better option than signing up for a site that is geared towards the younger population. It also helps to meet people your age. As much as a younger generation may sound, you will have different values and morals, and will be in a much different place in your life.

It’s not uncommon for younger women to sign up for profiles looking for older men. Many of them assume an older man will have money, and aren’t always interested in a relationship. Sticking to a site geared towards folks your age will help you avoid this.

Going Out

When you are planning a date it’s important to consider where you will go. Going to a night club if you are older is probably not a good idea. It will end up being a nightmare for both of you. Some great date ideas are the theater, a romantic dinner, or anything that you are able to talk and enjoy each others company. Avoid places that are popular for teens or young adults, as this will be loud and uncomfortable for both of you.
