Your person is still out there.
Dating at any age can be daunting but if you’ve been out of the game for a while, it can feel especially intimidating. The good news is, once you get over your initial first-date jitters, meeting new people can be a ton of fun and a great opportunity to find someone who could be an incredible addition to your life.
The first truth when it comes to dating over 50? Understanding that it’s not going to be anything like it was when you were in your 20s or 30s. “You are not the same person you were back then,” says Pepper Schwartz, PhD, a sex and relationships researcher and author of Prime: Adventures And Advice On Sex, Love, And The Sensual Years. That means who—and what—you’re attracted to will look very different than it did in your younger years.
On top of that, if you’ve been out of the dating scene for 20 or 30 years, you’ll come to realize that a lot has changed. For example, behaviors like “ghosting” (ending a relationship with someone by cutting off communication without explanation) and “breadcrumbing” (sending someone enough messages to keep them interested, but not enough to be committed) are part of the new norm. “These behaviors have been around for a long time, but nowhere near the extent to which they are now,” says Deb Laino, DHS, a Delaware-based relationship therapist and certified sex educator.
So how can you best navigate all of these changes once you re-enter the dating game? Here are 11 tips to keep in mind when you’re dating over 50.
kej: Impeachment is a political process. If you have a president with high approval numbers, the house may impeach him. But the Senate will not pass a sentence on him. Thereby leaving him in office. This is what happened to Bill Clinton. The house impeached, the senate said --a letter of admonishment will do and then they all went out and got drinks together. ---------------------------------------------- In the past two years, MSNBC CNN and about 20 other top news sites have done their best to DRIVE DOWN trumps approval numbers so that the republicans would lose the house and the senate and with low approval numbers removing him would be a simple matter of one democrat controlled entity handing another one a piece of paper in front of the Press and saying whatever they want to say about the reason why Trump should be removed. The problem has been Trump. He has not sat idly by waiting. He has fought back, pointing out their failed efforts, surviving a 2 year investigation by Mueller and continuing to have a wonderful economy. Every republican seat in congress Trump fights for. He Tweets about the economy because the press ignores it. He holds rallies to keep his base inspired. And he runs out every once in a while to confront the press. His poll numbers have been at times as high as Obama's or better, And to remove him involves political risk that jeopardizes democrat power that will go on for many election cycles.
