Over the course of several months of online dating, I discovered that the pool of available older women is vast and diverse (as is true of men, although perhaps to a lesser extent) and that with a little effort, a reasonably intelligent, halfway-presentable person can usually generate some interest on dating websites. We’ve survived death and divorce, raised families, managed careers and built support networks of family and friends.
But I wasn’t the same single guy I was the last time I lived here. And I wanted to meet people, so I turned to internet dating as a way to meet eligible women.
If you are at the beginning of your senior dating journey, you probably have several questions. I’d like to tackle the first of these questions – how to write an amazing senior dating profile that get’s you the attention that you deserve.
Most wanted to push past the introductory emails and calls to schedule a get-together ASAP.I'd say it's a pretty safe bet you didn't expect to be divorced, single and dating at this time in your life. And because a divorce judge didn't hand you a dating rulebook as you left the courtroom, you might be feeling pretty frustrated and overwhelmed with the 50 plus dating scene.You may even feel like the effort isn't worth it anymore leading you to give up on your dreams of finding a man to love who loves you. I’ve noticed after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the response I get on has dropped to almost nothing.It’s as though moving from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some kind of death-knell for a dating life.
