How to feel confident when dating as a senior
Being full of doubts before entering in a romantic relationship is something way too common, even more so after 50. Your body has changed over the years, wrinkles have made their appearance on your skin, and the last time you went on a date was probably decades ago. The things you look for in a relationship have also changed now that you have children and maybe grandchildren whom, by the way, you’d like to accept your future partner.
You have so many questions that make you rethink the odds of finding love again, but let us tell you: dating as a senior is a wonderful thing, and it’s totally worth the risk! However, we understand your fears, so let us give you a few affirmations to boost your self-confidence.
Dating as a senior is not weirdCasual love affairs amongst seniors are rarely depicted in the media, to the point where we can wonder if they are some sort of urban legends. In fact, there is a taboo in our society around the subject. Luckily, things are getting a little better each day, but because of this taboo, a crazy amount of people still don’t understand the desire, nor the need, for single seniors to find love again.
Yet, love has no age and you can be a wonderful parent and a wonderful grandparent, as well as a fantastic lover! You just need to go out there and discover that actually a lot of seniors are looking for the same thing as you are right now: seeing themselves again through someone’s loving eyes.
You are beautiful and sexy, no matter your ageYou may find yourself lacking body confidence because of your wrinkles or your hair for example. But remember when you were younger, you also did have body confidence issues you managed to put aside to enjoy your life. Therefore, the feeling of not being “good looking enough” and the fear of what others think of you are not specific to your age. Rather, they are psychological biases you can work on.
Men like confident women who know they are worthy, and the same goes for women. The good news is everyone is worthy, so everyone can feel and be sexy if they acknowledge that fact. Besides, your body is not the only thing that matters when it comes to seduction, your attitude also plays a huge role. Learn how to make good impressions, and most importantly, take care of yourself.
Sex is natural and as spontaneous as beforeSexual intercourses for seniors can be intimidating. However, more than 50% of men and more than 30% of women still have sex after 70, as a study suggests! Of course , some changes occur in sex in later life, but isn’t it the case for sex in general? Sex is, indeed, a perpetual process of learning to know your partner better and of adapting to circumstances.
You don’t have to worry about anything because if you are attracted to your senior date, things will flow naturally as the desire to get closer to them will become more and more intense, and vice versa.
Rejection is not a bad thingGetting back into the dating game means you will have to face rejection, which can sound terrible and unbearable, but if you think about it, rejection is not that bad. It doesn’t mean you are a failure, nor that you don’t deserve love at all. What rejection really means is you simply haven’t found the right person for you yet. Finding the perfect match is never easy, especially when you know what you want after years of experience in relationships, but it is not impossible.
Don’t be afraid to ditch people, and don’t fear rejection either, because that’s the most effective way to prevent you from wasting your time trying to build something with someone you’re not supposed to be with in the first place. Eventually, you will meet the one for you, so go out there and all we can do now is wish you good luck!
