Experiences Dating as a Single 50 Year Old Male

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.

Dealing with Hair Loss in Mid Life

Hair loss is inevitable for most men, and it admittedly took me a little longer to accept than I care to admit. I started losing my hair a few years back, but I managed to stay in denial until fairly recently. Don’t worry fellow middle-agers, there is a way through it. You must accept your hair loss with the kind of grace and dignity that I did.

One of the very first things I did once I started accepting my hair loss was go to the salon for a new style. You might say that this was just another pointless attempt at avoiding the fact of the matter, but the truth is that it helped me quite a bit. I have found one resource very helpful, a website that provides information on all natural supplements for men, they even have a full section dedicated to hair restoration and natural solutions to restore hair growth.

Let me first say that if you don’t have that much hair left, please shave it off. There is really no point in having only a little bit of hair left on your temples and the back of your head. You’ll actually probably be surprised at just how much better you look once you get it over with. From what I’ve noticed, it seems as though shaved heads are really “in” right now anyway.

Fortunately, I still have enough hair left to where styling it a different way actually helped me a lot. I think I look a lot better with my new hair style, and all of my friends agree. If you want to try out a new style too, I highly recommend that you find a competent barber who knows what they are doing. Maybe ask some of your friends who also struggle with hair loss to see who they go to. Trust me when I say that the right barber can make all the difference in the world when it comes to coping with your hair loss.

The most important thing that I did when it came to dealing with my hair loss was to just stop worrying about it. So many guys get obsessed with the hair they no longer have, which ironically can lead to even more hair loss! Losing your hair is the most natural thing in the world, so try not to worry about it too much.

If you really feel like having more hair is important to you, there are options that you can explore. You could get a hair transplant or try a medication like Propecia. It’s important to keep in mind that if you are at the point where you’re nearly bald, you can say goodbye to getting your full head of hair back.

I would suggest that anyone who is interested the various medications and procedures that are designed to treat hair loss to be very cautious. There are a lot of different options out there, but not all of them are good ones.

My advice to those who are starting to lose their hair in mid life is to relax and work with what you have. Don’t try to hide your head underneath a hat all the time like so many other guys do. Embrace your hair loss and your masculinity. Losing your hair doesn’t mean that you can’t still look attractive, it just means that you’ll have to get comfortable with a whole new look. I know that I’m happy with my not-so-full head of hair.

How I Survived my Midlife Crisis

Believe it or not, I’ve actually made it to 50 years of age without buying an expensive sports car or dating a woman half my age! What is my secret, you say? Well, my secret is that there really is no secret. The fact is that I still feel youthful, so I’ve therefore never felt like I had to relive my youth. I may be an older guy, but I certainly don’t feel that way at all.

I think one of the big reasons that so many guys around my age go off and do all of these crazy things is because they can’t stand the fact that they are no longer a kid anymore. When I realized that age is really just a number, I stopped feeling the urge to make some dramatic and unnecessary change in my life.

Besides a more positive shift in thinking, I started become more active. I joined a gym and actually started going on a regular basis. This was definitely the first and one of the most important parts in my survival of the dreaded midlife crisis. The more physically active I became, the younger I started to feel. It is truly amazing what regular cardio and a little bit of weight lifting can do for you when you start feeling old.

The second thing I started doing when I felt my midlife crisis creeping up on me was getting back onto the dating scene. I have one divorce under my belt, and it had been a while since I even went on a single date with anyone.

Within just a couple of days of signing up on an online dating site I had my first date. It went great. I had honestly forgotten what it was like to feel that rush of excitement when you meet someone special, and I could feel the clock turning back to my twenties.

I also made a point of spending more time going out with my friends, whom I had been neglecting due to overly extended period of self-mourning over turning middle aged. The more I went out and had fun with my friends, the less I worried about my age and everything I thought that being 50 meant.

I guess what ultimately helped me survive my midlife crisis was just taking better care of myself. I started thinking and acting differently, and it made a hugely positive impact on my life that I expect will last for many more years.

Discovering the Fountain of Youth as a Middle Aged Man

My name is Frank Martin and I am 50 years old. I always feared being middle aged because I thought it would be the beginning of the end for me in every possible way. I now know that I had nothing to fear, because despite being middle aged I have found a tremendous wealth of energy and happiness.

It may be true that there is no actual fountain of youth (wouldn’t that be great!), but in a matter of speaking it is real. I’ve found so many different ways to keep myself active, attractive and happy even in my semi-old age. I don’t really feel middle aged at all, and I certainly don’t think of myself as being old. You are only as old as you feel, as the saying goes.

I’ll admit that there are quite a few different challenges that I’ve faced as I’ve gotten older, but I have always managed to find ways to get around them, little life hacks if you will. If you want to know how to slide into being middle aged gracefully, I really think that my own experiences will help you a lot.

 

 

The truth is that you don’t have to let yourself go just because you have reached “a certain age.” Do you find that you don’t have as much hair as you used to? Is your dating life not what you want it to be? I’ve struggled with these issues and many more. I always find that there is an effective solution to every problem if you are creative and bold enough.

Whether you are thirty or fifty years old, life can be extremely fun and joyful. There may be nothing you can do about getting older, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up in any sense. I have had my fair share of difficulties like everyone else, and I’ve always managed to come through all of them unscathed (for the most part at least.)

The fountain of youth is really nothing more than a state of mind mixed with some creative problem solving. I may be 50 years old, but I still feel like I’m twenty. Sure, I’ve had lots of problems to deal with, but nothing I couldn’t handle. I’m still enjoying my youth even though most people wouldn’t necessarily say I am a very young person.

Body-Friendly Hobbies for a 50 Year Old Male

I am more active and have more hobbies now as a 50 year old man than when I was much younger. If you are in the same position I was a year ago looking for new and fun things to do despite being middle aged, I can assure you that you have plenty of options!

Cycling

I was never much into cycling when I was younger, but when I turned 50 I decided to try it again. Since I bought my new Husky mountain bike a few months ago, I can’t stop pedaling. Cycling is a great form of exercise and I’ve found that it takes me to places I never would have gone otherwise—through parks, nature trails, different parts of the city I live in.

Golf

Okay, I know what you’re thinking: “Golf is an old person’s sport.” The fact is that I see people of all ages out on the golf course, and I enjoy it almost more than anything else, especially when I’m having a good day! It’s also a great way to make new friends and even business connections.

Woodburning

Woodburning is an extremely interesting hobby that I’ve been doing for only a month now, but I absolutely love it. I purchased a woodburning kit online and I’ve made all kinds of great-looking designs with it. If you have even somewhat of an artistic side and are looking for a new hobby to take up, I highly recommend this!

Bird Watching

In my opinion there is no hobby that is quite as relaxing as bird watching. I could spend hours in the park with my binoculars checking out all of the different birds that are around. This is hobby doesn’t really cost any money at all, and it can be a wonderful way to spend a beautiful day outside.

Volunteering

In the past few months I have been doing a lot of volunteer work for a couple of different charitable organizations. This is one hobby that makes me feel great because I feel like I’m making a difference, and I’ve made a lot of new friends as a result.
