It’s as though moving from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some kind of death-knell for a dating life.
I initiate contact with men in an age-range of about 3 years younger up to about 8 years older than myself.
They explain that a change in mindset is essential for women over 60 who want to find romance.
In my recent interview with dating coach, David Wygant, he suggested that men are often the ones who lack confidence and suffer from fear of rejection.
I’ve noticed after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the response I get on has dropped to almost nothing.
When I have emailed some of those guys, I never hear back.
I’m guessing they check out my profile, see my age, and probably read no further.
But with the prospect of growing old alone, many people over the age of 45 ultimately start to actively date in the hopes of meeting a suitable companion.
It used to be that only "losers" had to look online for a mate.
