Seniors are often looking at dating and relationships from a different angle than their younger counterparts.
The years previous tend to teach us a lot about what we want from love and companionship. Having kids and a family has been and gone and now you are looking for something different.
Something unique to seniors. This does not mean that emotions and dating techniques work any different. Dating over 50 is pretty much the same game – you are just looking for different things.
Driven by love lust or loneliness?
Whatever your emotion for dating in your senior years there are certain dating rules you should keep in mind.
Senior People Meet – Be on time
There is no reason to be late – your date’s time is valuable so to waste it by turning up late shows a lack of respect. It is not cool or fashionable to be late when dating over 50.
Senior People Meet – Compliment
Everyone is open and ready to receive compliments no matter what their age. Give honest and relevant compliments throughout the night.
Senior People Meet – Honesty
Once you meet someone and set up a first date via senior people meet you are going to want to be completely honest with them.
In fact right from sign up you are going to need to clarify what you want from your seniorpeoplemeet experience.
Users will expect maturity and honesty from 50+ years of life experience so the least you can do is be clear about your motivations so that you don’t waste their time.
Senior People Meet – Polite
Everyone is using seniorpeoplemeet for the same reasons but not everyone will share your interests or expectations. If you feel users are a little odd or perhaps letting you down politely excuse yourself from the connection/contact list.
This is preferably over being rude or dropping out of communication. This is what you will likely find in general dating sites but not at sites such as senior people meet where there is an exclusive database of mature singles looking to connect.
Senior People Meet – Positivity
A potential downside to senior dating is that you tend to get a bit picky for your own good. You know what you want and you know all too well what grinds your gears.
As a result… there WILL be dates that are obviously just not going to work out.
Instead of getting sour this could be a great chance to meet a new friend. Every date does not have to be a potential life partner. They can be great friends or simply acquaintances. Do not get sour at wasted time, you take the chance of dates not going well on the great chance you will meet someone amazing.
Senior People Meet – Authenticity
You do not need to change your appearance or fake anything in order to find a soulmate past 50. Everyone has their imperfections. You can make an effort to look nice but coming across authentic is key.
Hopefully by now you will have gained enough confidence and security within yourself that you do not need to change who you are to impress. You are well past that which makes senior dating so much fun.
