Positives of dating after 60
Dating at any stage of life can be scary and filled with uncertainty, but no expiry date comes with it, and it should be enjoyed whatever age you are. It’s something you probably didn’t see yourself navigating in your 60’s and the thought of a first date may seem somewhat overwhelming. Discovering the excitement that comes with meeting someone new without the worries and insecurities of your early 20’s, opens you up to a whole new fulfilling and fun time of your life. Come with us as we explore the positives of dating once you’re over 60.
1. Have fun – age doesn’t matter
You’re over sixty and have already lived a reasonably full life. Now is the time to have fun and appreciate the opportunities given to you in this new phase. One of the positives of being older is taking your time to get to know each other and having fun while doing so. And a great aspect of dating in your 60s is there’s so much life experience and perspective to talk about.
2. More experience
There’s a lot to say about life experience and how this leads to self-confidence and wisdom that only comes with age. It’s a time in your life when you are stronger and know who you are more than ever, which makes starting a relationship a more positive experience. Not to mention by 60 we would have a good idea of exactly what we want and what we are looking for in a person.
3. Easier to be honest with each other
One thing age and experience give you is confidence and honesty. You’re at a stage in life where you care less about what others think and have a level of comfort within yourself that sees you being more open and honest with your new partner.
4. Less worried about what others think
Usually, by this time in your life, you worry less about what others think. You are more comfortable in your own skin and less apprehensive about the opinion of others. While you may still worry about what to wear on your first date and how you should do your hair, it’s not as life-altering in your mind as it may have been in your 20’s.
5. Relationships often start as a friendship
One of the best aspects of dating as an older person is that you often start as friends first. There is a level of intimacy in being friends first before getting to know each other romantically. It usually means that you have similar interests, go to the same community social clubs or play the same sports and even have the same group of friends to spend time with.
What Are You Waiting For?
Entering the dating scene in your sixties can be daunting with apps and services and wondering where to meet the right type of person. However, the many positives outweigh the uncertainties meaning it can also be quite rewarding. With less worry and more confidence in yourself, it’s the perfect time to meet a companion and feel great about it. And who doesn’t love the excitement of when you meet someone that you’re interested in!
So, what are you waiting for? Dating in your 60’s is less like it was when you were younger and allows you to explore love or companionship in a whole different light. You never know, you may just enjoy yourself.
