5 Important Rules To Remember For Senior Dating over 50

Posted by seniorsdatingsites.org


Dating at any age is rough, but dating after 50 is even rougher. Why? The rules that were applied when you were younger don’t necessarily apply anymore. After all, you’re older and more is expected from adults than teenagers or young adults. So, if you want to date after 50, and let’s be honest, nobody really wants to be alone, what rules should you remember to ensure you get the respect you deserve and the man of your dreams?

5 Things You Shouldn’t Do On Senior Dating Over 50

Avoid The Baggage Talks

When you’re dating for the first time after the age of 50, it’s natural to want to talk about your history. A simple question about your previous marriage or job could send you spiraling down a never-ending spill about the topic. In fact, it may be hard to get yourself to stop talking about it once you started.   After all, you may not even know you’re doing it.

But, what you’re also doing it alienating your date from asking you out again.

You certainly don’t want to be the person that talks about family and why there was no love there between everyone. This just causes the date to feel like it’s up to them to show you the love you deserve to have. Baggage can be a real relationship killer, but a relationship even has time to bud and grow. 

Once you’ve established a relationship and things seem to be going good, you can later talk about the baggage that helped you to become the person you are today.

Don’t Get Caught Up In The Emotional Dating High

When you first start your dating on some senior dating sites, you may be excited about it – just like a giddy teenager on her first date ever. You may even find yourself swept into the emotional whirlwind of it all. However, you need to maintain a level head during this time when you’ve been invited out to drinks. Don’t get too excited and drink the date away.

If you don’t drink alcohol, consider drinking something else like water, tea or soda.  Since alcohol is a stimulant, it can cause an increase in the desire for sex. Remember, you need to get a level head during this time so that any choices you make are the right ones for you.

Don’t Just Get Involved With Him

Before you get fully involved with a man, take a little time to observe his mannerisms and style. How does he dress? How does he act? How does he talk about his ex or children? Observing him allows you to get a real sense of who he is.  Of course, you want more positive points than negative ones. Make sure the values he has go along with yours.

Don’t Flirt Excessively

Men like a little flirting, not excessive flirting. You’re not as young as you used to be, and you shouldn’t act like you’re a teenager trying to get his attention. You don’t want to come across as desperate. Flirt but show him and yourself some respect when you do.  It’s not uncommon to be a little conservative when it comes to romance and intimacy now that you hit 50. Some folks feel that flirting isn’t something you should do when you hit a certain age.

However, men do like flirting… no matter what age you are.

You can use your body language to express how you feel. You can smile, play with your hair, look into his eyes and lightly touch him on the arm or shoulder. The biggest flirt is complimenting him. Men love to be complimented. When you can, let him know that you think he’s a hard worker or that he’s talented. He may actually start to act like a protector of you, keeping you out of danger whenever possible. Be sure you look for these qualities and compliment him on them.

Don’t Call Him, Let Him Reach Out To You

Once you’ve been out on a date, you may think calling him for a second one is a good idea. However, stop before you pick up the phone. Many men still have the thinking that they should call you. After all, they know what they want and who they want to be with. Offer him some time to call, as he may have things going on you don’t know about.  And, if he doesn’t make the call, keep pressing forward. It may not have been meant to be.
