Dating widowed man children

But now that you’ve been through it…isn’t it better?

Because no matter how old you get, one thing about human nature never changes: nobody likes feeling lonely.

Older adults, however, look for companionship in a way that’s very different from their younger counterparts.

Once you’re into your wisdom years your needs, desires and expectations are very different from what you’re looking for when you’re in your 20s.

Let’s take a look at nine things you (probably) didn’t know about dating for older adults: It seems counter-intuitive to say that people characterized by one attribute — how old they are — don’t care as much about age when looking for a companion, but it’s true.

And they love you even though you’re yourself (sorry…there’s laughing in my head right now). Why would I want to find the exact same man, who was perfect for who I was, but may not fit the person I’ve become?

So…what makes you think it would be different in a new romantic relationship? And couldn’t that person just be floating out there…waiting for a hook?

We are all living decades longer than we once did, and are staying fitter, healthier (and in some cases, friskier) further into our wisdom years than ever before.

This means that there are more seniors and baby boomers than ever before looking for some companionship to fill the void of their prior partner.

And some of us are standing on the ledge, with the cord on, but need a friendly push from a well-intentioned friend who we may be mad at while we’re swinging but once we’re on firm ground we’ll give them a big ol’ hug.

I don’t want anyone reading this post to think that I am insensitive to the fact that some people just aren’t ready. But sometimes I just think that many people don’t think there are any other good fish in the sea.

The filtering mechanisms on these dating sites similarly emphasize the importance age takes in the minds of young match-seekers, with all users asked to specify the age range they are seeking, with many choosing ridiculously narrow ranges (e.g. ) Adults over 55 are far more flexible in their approach to companionship.
