If you’re single and over 50, you probably know that dating is much more complicated now than it used to be. Wondering why? Read on to discover 15 reasons why it’s so hard to date after fifty.
1. You’re not confident
Your confidence might be rusty now. Dating in your 20s or 30s was much easier than getting back into the dating scene as a senior. That’s mainly because you think you’re too old for that—and this is completely wrong.
“You may feel limited, afraid, and self-conscious because you are aging, but don’t let that stop you from living your life,” says health and wellness coach Lynell Ross.
“By the time people get to their 50s, they are usually not just older and wiser, but they are kinder, more forgiving, and more understanding. If you can be open to new possibilities, dating can actually be easier as you get older.”
