Mature Dating – Yes We Are Talking Senior Dating

If you’re like me you may have found yourself in the scary situation of being single again, for the first time in 30 to 40 years. But one of the thing you and I have to do is realize we aren’t alone in this situation. There are literally millions of us facing the prospect of mature dating.

You need to grab hold of the fact that there are men and women your age, some a little younger and a bunch are older, in the same boat you are. However, what many of these folks have found out that it isn’t quite as scary as they thought it was.

One of the primary reason for that is at our age the pressure is really off. The majority of us already have been around the block once or twice and of course others which have galloped around the paddock 3 or more times. The end result being we already know what we need in our life, for us, to be compatible with someone in our latter years.

You know one of the things I really like about mature dating is I have so much more time to get to know the folks and learn what there likes and dislikes are. For example if I’m a dog lover and my date has no desire for pets in their life, that may well be a strong signal, that they may be o.k. for an occasional date; but not a candidate for being a significant other.

I know, I know it sounds a bit harsh, but think about it for just a minute. Having a pet is one of the things that can definitely cause a relationship to go south. It is one of those situations where comprise may not work. You won’t bend on getting rid of the pet and she/he won’t bend on having one.

Less you and I face it! If we have the time to truly get to know a person before it becomes serious, a lot of grief can be avoided.

At our age, mature dating gives us the time we need to really get to know the people we are dating and perhaps falling in love with for the rest of our life. Ultimately with the pressure off of us we are much less likely to make a bad mistake in finding a new mate.
