The idea of being single and still on the dating scene at 50 years of age used to terrify me. When I started dating again years after my divorce, I quickly discovered that I didn’t really have that much to worry about at all.
A few months ago I signed up on an online dating website, which I was very apprehensive about to begin with. One of my computer-savvy friends convinced me to create an account on this website, and I can honestly say that it changed my life for the better.
I’ve actually been on quite a few dates since signing up on the dating website, and I’ve met some really nice and interesting women. The fact is that dating as a single 50 year old guy doesn’t have to awkward or cumbersome, as long as you approach it with the right attitude. I’ll admit that I was a bit down on the idea of getting back onto the dating scene as a middle aged guy, but I’ve since come around to it in a big way.
I have a lot of fun going out on dates, because it affords me the opportunity to meet all sorts of great women, and I always love that feeling of “this woman could be the one.” I strongly feel that maintaining an
active dating and social life is one of the keys to staying young, even if are middle aged. And I don’t get sad or depressed if I go out on a date with a woman and they don’t turn out to be the love of my life, because I put myself out there and that’s what’s important.
Last week I went out to dinner with a lovely 46 year-old woman named Jennifer, and I had a great time. We shared a delicious meal and some great conversation. We talked about our lives, our hobbies and connected on a deeper level than I initially expected. I felt like I was in my twenties again, except much more mature and level-headed.
One of the great things about dating as a 50 year old man is that you can still have so much fun while keeping your head on your shoulders far better than you could when you were younger. If you are around the same age as me and single, don’t worry—there’s a whole world of excitement and possibilities waiting for you.
