Senior Date Just As Hard The Second Time

A first time senior date is every bit as nerve racking as a first date for a 16 year old. Life experience does nothing to ease the jitters of meeting someone for a romantic connection for the first time. In fact, if you have recently left a long time relationship, it may be even harder for you to go out on the “scene” again than it is for younger people. Here’s some tips to minimize the anxiety for a first time senior date.

First of all, you should lower the expectations. Don’t expect your first date to be the person who you spend the rest of your life with. Think of it as a way to meet a new person who you might be friends – or more – with.

Next, choose the location well. Many people think of a date as dinner and a movie. But this may be too much for a first senior date. Instead, meet for coffee or lunch. That keeps things on a lighter level. More importantly, it keeps the date short.

If you share common interests, that makes a great first senior date. For instance, if you both enjoy art, go to an opening at an art museum. You will find it much easier to talk when you have a natural common interest in front of you.

Avoid making a date for someplace where you will be alone. A picnic by a secluded creek can be very romantic, but it’s not a good idea for a first date.

But, going to a movie, play, or music event, even though it is crowded, may not be a good idea either. That’s because it doesn’t give you a chance to talk.

You should always arrive at your destination in separate vehicles so that either of you can leave if things get uncomfortable. Also, let a friend or family member know where you are going and who you are going with. It is unfortunate, but these days, it is important to be safe.

After a first senior date, you have to decide whether to see the person again. If the first date was enjoyable and the companionship seems good, by all means go out again. If you were at all uncomfortable, listen to your instincts.

Don’t feel that you have to go out on second dates just because you went out on the first one. Life’s too short at this point to go on meaningless dates. It may also prevent you from investing the emotional energy into finding someone with whom you can spend the rest of your life.

Yes, a senior date is just as nerve racking as a high school date. But first dates remain first dates whatever the age. Go out with confidence, hoping for romance, and committed to having fun whatever the outcome.

Senior Citizens Dating- Are You Ready To Take The Plunge

Forget knitting, crochet or golf. Senior Citizens Dating is booming as many of us reach retirement and realise that the golden years are ideal for sharing.

The family is raised – well yes I know they are probably still your babies and may even be living at home (when will they move out?) but in fairness once they hit 30 your job is done. The career ladder has been climbed, the retirement check has been cashed, but you are not yet ready for a life of rocking chairs and bingo.

Dating at any age can be nerve racking. Now we are older, we have, hopefully!, accepted that we aren’t Grace Kelly or Rock Hudson. We are generally happy with our appearance although we would make an effort when going on a date. We have achieved most of what we want out of life so are not looking to another person to provide us with a family or stability. Just someone to share precious moments.

But while we may be happy with our lives and feel confident in most areas, it is very rare not to feel nervous when you first contact a senior citizen dating service. What type of service would you prefer to use? You can access senior online dating services, a senior dating group or the personals in your local paper should have a section for seniors.

So how do you prepare for your first senior date? Well to all intents and purposes it is almost like an interview. You need to be aware of your own strengths and weaknesses. Some dating companies will ask you to complete a questionnaire detailing these.

It can be difficult to write a paragraph describing yourself in the best possible light but your best friends could help a lot. Just ask them to give you a list of your best qualities and to put your less attractive personality traits in the most positive language possible. For example, if you have a tendency to talk incessantly – a common complaint among us women, your best friend is not likely to describe you as having verbal diarrhea. Instead they may say you are exuberant or enthusiastic.

I am not suggesting you lie. It is a waste of time although very common. Have you ever looked at the personal ads? Almost every person describes themselves as having a GSOH i.e. a great sense of humour. Only say that if it is true. Your perfect match may not want someone who cracks jokes every five minutes. Be yourself, don’t try to be someone else.

Also think about the qualities that you would like your partner to have. Would they be married, divorced, single or widowed? Does their religious or cultural background matter to you? What about their financial status?

Going dating is rather like going shopping. You hope that you will find the perfect match but you should be willing to enjoy the experience regardless. I think we should look, at senior citizens, dating as a way to grab whatever opportunities we have to enjoy our lives as much as possible.

Why An Online Dating Website Can Be Simply Irresistible

If it has been too long since you got out and met new people and your love life is going nowhere, it may be time to give an
online dating website a chance.. Yes, a lot of people are clamoring to dating sites to try them and experience for themselves this contemporary way of dating.

If you try an online dating website, you have nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. In fact, they have become pretty
main stream now. Gone are the days of conventional dating that require you to go out on a Friday and/or Saturday night to
a smoke filled, overcrowded, ear numbing club or bar just to go guy or girl hunting.

Going to a bar and paying ridiculous prices for alcohol can be a thing of the past. Let’s not even get into how every person in the place is probably passing judgment. Let’s not forget how you usually have to deal with creepy and/or obnoxious people by going the more traditional route of trying to find a soul mate.

Because there are so many online dating websites, it’s very easy for you to choose an ideal online dating website that fits all of your interests and needs. On an online dating website, it’s very easy to find people who have hobbies, an occupation,or interests in common with you. Best of all, unlike when you go out, you’ll be able to easily sort people based on criteria you would like met. Try doing that in a bar or club. Here are some reasons why you should consider becoming a member of an online dating website:

Privacy

Going out on weekends to go bar hopping or clubbing can be fun, however, for the reasons mentioned above, it may not be the
ideal way to meet someone you would be interested in romantically. Also, you have to put yourself out there, in public. By joining an online dating website, you can sit in the comfort of your own place. You can browse online profiles in your underwear, if you want.

A Wide Range of Selection

A lot of people join an online dating website because the amount of prospects are usually almost limitless. If you join a popular online dating website there will be new people signing up literally, hourly. Whatever you are looking for in a person, can easily be found at an online dating website. You’ll know in a few minutes whether they’re right for you or not, just by looking at their pictures and reading their online dating profile. If no one on the site catches your eye, no
problem. Most of the time you just have to wait a day or two and there will be more people who join and you’re boundto be interested in at least one of them.

One Common Purpose: Searching

Think about how many times you’ve been out and someone caught your eye; so you try to make a move, only to find out they are already taken! When you join an online dating website, most everyone on the site is single and looking. As mentioned above, you can easily find someone based on the criteria you choose. Best of all, when you find someone who meets your criteria, they’ll probably be looking for someone that meets the same criteria as you, so you’re almost assured that you’ll be compatible with them.

If you’re sick of the same old routine, and you’re ready to find someone to connect with romantically; then it may very well be time you join an online dating website today!
