Mature adults re-entering the dating scene may find the scene exciting, but they may also find it frustrating as they try to navigate dating etiquette that frequently evolves. A vibrant dating and sex life is entirely possible after age 60 and beyond. The succeeding generations add to the pool of potential partners, says Kiner. There were a finite number of females in the 'dating pool. It's true that certain men prefer the company of women many years their junior.
As Tony Soprano would say, 'fuggetaboutit. You'll never make it with them because you don't have what they're looking for. Be pragmatic and don't beat a dead horse. Though entering the dating pool at an older age can seem scary, men and women in their 60s have the benefit of life experience, leading to a self-confidence that is only acquired with age.

You can converse intelligently on a wide variety of subjects. You've experienced life - both the good and the bad. You can look back with laughter and nostalgia as you reminisce with men your age, older, or even younger. Kiner says that dating in later years can be more fun because Baby Boomers are, in general, more economically stable than other generations. As a result, they will enjoy two pension checks and two social security checks. It will be less likely that a woman who has survived her husband will live off only a survivor benefit.
It's more probable that a widow will live off a survivor benefit plus her own pension and social security income," says Kiner. These changes can seem scary and confusing to someone re-entering the dating pool after many years. Kiner says that daters in their 60s aren't necessarily looking for flings or one night stands. However, if the relationship is wonderful - marriage ensues. With age comes wisdom, but that doesn't mean it's always smooth sailing in navigating the dating scene.

Dissimilarities in background, education, and religion top the list. If you and your ex-spouse s were from diverse cultural backgrounds, had differing family experiences, differing levels of education, and a different religion , perhaps it is time to re-think what to look for in a new relationship. While it may be true that opposites attract, and it has been tried more than once and if you found it had no staying power, now is the time to consider someone who is more like you.

Do be careful some man does not try to take advantage and go after your money. Some men are not financially doing well today and look for a woman to pay the bills. I just lost the man of my dreams to cancer five days before Christmas……… married 25 years. I take that like I am nothing without a husband….. This was a long and painful part of my life and we lost everything just to make medical payments……. Is this really all we women think about??? Since men often die earlier than women….

Once into my 30s and onward to my 60s, I tended to attract men 7 or 8 yrs younger than me. For a long term relationship or marriage, I much prefer my peers for best communication, shared wisdom, commonality. However, I am speaking hypothetically now cause I definitely intend to remain single, like living alone unless I found a fun golden girls situation.
Had more than my share of romance, passion, oodles of stories and rocking chair memories. I dated a guy 16 yrs younger that was older than myself in his outlook. So Im now dating a guy my age.. Must say the older woman is more popular than ever now..
