When ladies get to a certain age, it seems that the sea that was once full of fish keeps shrinking extremely rapidly. Mature dating comes with its set of challenges that women in their 30s and 40s can’t even imagine, but luckily there are certain things that we can all do to increase the odds of finding a partner past the age of 50. The kind of love that awaits doesn’t have to be passionate, but it sure can be gentle, comforting, and fulfilling, making you stronger and happier emotionally and mentally. Today, we take a look at what us ladies can do to attract the right kind of person that will meet our needs regardless of how old we might be.
This certainly sounds like such a cliché that it could easily make you vomit, but the point is you absolutely have to believe in the laws of attraction. If you really want a great man by your side who’ll be emotionally (and legally!) available to be your significant other, you have to picture yourself happy next to someone all the time. What does he look like? What kind of a lifestyle does he lead? How similar is he to you? In what sense? Once you establish what kind of man you want in your life, you have to go out there and find him. There are lots of ways to do this, digital dating being the paramount of the bunch, but unless you’re good and willing to put in the ‘work’, and unless you’re emotionally available for a relationship, it’s unlikely that anyone worthy will come along or even if he did, you probably wouldn’t even notice.
Mature singles often find themselves in a rut in more ways than one, but there is no reason to stop taking care of yourself once you get to a certain age. A makeover doesn’t have to be anything major that will cost you an arm and a leg as long as it’s enough to boost your confidence and make you shine even brighter. Change your hair color and style, learn new makeup tricks, update your wardrobe, and join the gym. You don’t need to go as far as expensive beauty treatments, plastic surgery or anything that can drastically tamper with your physical appearance. Once you accomplish this your energy will change, you’ll feel younger and rejuvenated, and the people around you will begin to take notice, including those potential dates that lurk around every corner.
Plenty of life experience has taught you that the greatest things in life happen when you least expect them. Maybe you’ll bump into your next romantic interest at your friend’s birthday party or you’ll take a trip out of town where you’ll meet your friend’s cute neighbor or you’ll discover that your co-worker’s cousin is great to talk to at a barbecue she’s throwing next week. The point is that you can’t predict what the future will bring, and we’re not talking about the distant future here. Your life can change in an instant when someone new and alluring walks right into it, but in order for this to happen, you have to be open to new experiences, which can hardly be accomplished from your living room couch.
Most women who are over 50 and looking to date need a confidence boost wherever they can get one. Picking up a new hobby or learning a new skill does wonders for your self-esteem in addition to the fact that every new class you take broadens your horizons and enriches your mind and soul. Learn to cook Indian food, speak Italian or play the piano. Sure, you won’t ever audition for Juilliard, but who cares! You’ll spend time doing something you’ve always wanted to do, and you’re sure to meet great new people in the process.
