Dating when your 50
For women who have been trying to find that illusive “special someone” for a while, this may seem like an impossible question to answer.After all, for most of our lives, men were simple creatures.Now, as we reach our 50s and 60s, the situation is somewhat more complicated.To get a view into the male mind after 60, I sat down with dating coach, Lisa Copeland for a quick chat.Lisa Copeland is a fabulous woman, with a passion for helping women to find quality men.If you have you have ever noticed that older men are unlikely to make eye contact with your or have felt completely ignored at a dance or party, Lisa thinks she knows why.In our interview, I asked Lisa this question directly and she gave me a simple answer.
Now, as we reach our 60s, it’s difficult to put our swords down and just relax a bit. Lisa and I also discuss the perception that men only want to date younger women.
According to Lisa, single men over 60 want women who are in touch with their feminine side. Lisa mentions that this is often the case, but, not for the reasons that many of us assume.
Men are not always looking for a younger body to cuddle up next to.
More important is that fact that younger women are more willing to show their feminine side to win a man’s heart.
Of course, they don’t have our experience, or our battle scars for that matter, but, this is beside the point. Or, you may decide that she is right, but, that finding a partner is just not worth the trouble.
Lisa argues that, if we can connect with our feminine side, we can find a quality man, regardless of who we are competing with. But, I promise you that her opinions come from interactions with 100s of older women, just like you.
