Dating over 50 can be fun and rewarding!

Dating at any age can bring up a variety of emotions from excitement to fear and frustration, but dating in the second stage of your life has it's own unique circumstances. You are not the same person you were at 20, 30 or even 40! You've had life experiences, gotten wiser and know exactly what you want in life and in a life partner!

You are ready for a real connection

1.  Good news! You do not need someone to complete you or take care of you! You are successful, independent and self assured! You can now clearly express to others that you are looking for a partner to share life's joys with not one to fill a void in your life. Feeling satisfied and content with your own life sends a vibe that will attract the type of partner you are looking who can meet you at your level and walk beside you!

2. You are aware of how your needs, expectations and desires have changed over the years.  In your 20s and 30s, your values and compatibility in relationships may have focused more on getting married, raising children and furthering your career, while your focus in your 50s may be more on enjoying shared interests and experiencing all of what life has to offer!

Time to relax, connect and enjoy each other!

3.  You are aware of your relationship patterns and know exactly what you want! You have identified your deal breakers and feel confident in your decision.  If you know you don't want to date a smoker, you own that and don't waste your time. 

4. You truly believe that the best is yet to come!  Your 50s are a wonderful new chapter in your life. With your children out of the house, or at least more self-sufficient, you can finally focus on you! This new era opens up a world of possibilities for new experiences, new connections and new relationships!
