Keeping The Flame Alive: Romance For The Over 50 Set

Dating after hitting the big 5-0 can be even more daunting than dating during your teens. But that doesn’t mean that it can’t be just as fun. Finding someone you can love or just someone that you can spend time with be just as fun and rewarding in your more “mature” years.

Don’t Let Age Define You

People like to make a lot of assumptions, but when it comes to your age, do not let anyone else define what your love life should look like. Take risks, go places you want to visit, and do the activities that you want to participate in. Whether it comes to going out clubbing, or going to play bingo, enjoy yourself to the fullest. Also, do not let the age of who you like define your relationship. If your partner is younger than you, you are not a cougar or a “sugar daddy,” you are simply just someone in love. Don’t think that the age gap between the two of you makes your relationship any less valid.

Making Love Can Still Be Adventurous

No, you aren’t as sprite as you used to be, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t try out what the younger kids are doing. Age doesn’t limit how kinky or crazy you want to get in bed, as long as your partner is also into it. Be sure to treat yourself right when it comes to the way that you like to get down. And remember the timeless Kim K line: “nude selfies for life.”

Check Out Some Apps

Online dating can be sketchy, but some phone apps are really perfect for older individuals to meet other like-minded people. With apps like Tindr or Bumble, you can state how old you are, your interests, and what you want in a fellow partner. These apps can make it easier to find people, as trying to meet dates at bars, the library, or at clubs can be difficult. These apps will help narrow down your searches.

Get Rid Of Your “Type”

If you have a romantic “type,” now is the time to get rid of it. While dating during your golden years, you have to let go of anything that is holding you back from dating all types of different people. Now is the time to go out with many kinds of people and in the end, just have fun in the dating world. So go out with whoever, and have an excellent time meeting new people!

Let Loose

When  you’re older and dating, the best romantic advice that anyone can give you is to just to have fun and let loose. At this stage of your life, you can’t be held down by others’ expectations for you. Be sure to only do the things that make you happy, and try to make your partner or lover happy as well. Also, just be sure to have a great time, no matter what.
