After spending the better part of your life being responsible and taking care of other may be hard for you to remember the first cardinal rule of dating, is having fun! Many things may have changed about dating but one thing will always remain true and that is the best dates are the ones which make you laugh and even act silly. This lightheartedness breaks down walls and brings a closeness to the couple, who are getting to know each other.


If you are 50+ and dating again, you most likely have been many good and bad times in your life. Some of these times have involved positive and negative dating experiences. You can't drag your baggage from other relationships into a new adventure. Deal with your past until you can fit it into just a carry-on and start fresh. Be present with this romance; don't make comparisons and expectations. Just enjoy each new moment.


Dating is a time for two people to get acquainted but it is not the time for you to tell someone all of your relationship horror stories or how much your daughter wants you to get remarried. Don't impose these issues on a new friend. Talk about yourself...your likes and hobbies. Find out about the other person...but don't have any extra people figuratively on your date with you.

So, don't hesitate! Dating when you are over 50 can be fun, exciting and fulfilling. Don't believe stereotypes and don't overthink it. Just go...enjoy and who knows? You may STILL find true love!
