Boomer Dating Advise and Tips for Singles Over 45, Over 50 +
Last night the whole family celebration of this generation’s equivalent of The Birthdays, we were a whole gaggle of Baby Boomers. In the older generations which have all passed on, my mother and maternal grandmother’s birthdays were 2 days apart. We always referred to that as THE BIRTHDAYS. What do you want to do for THE BIRTHDAYS this year? etc.

Some of the strongest characteristics of couples who connect for romantic life partnership and marriage over the age of 45 and over 50 is that those single boomers really it IS all about WHO YA KNOW.
And it is also about WHO KNOWS YOU!
For Singles in their 30s, in the metropolitan areas it was often recycled exs potlucks. There were some of those featured in the STILL popular TV show, Sex And The City (SITC). Ha ha. But those sort of larger parties always feel so contrived and like too small a speed dating event. Too much pressure to HAVE to pair up and also the contextual frame is too negative.
Instead of not the right match for you or for me.
I prefer and recommend small potlucks dinners. And that you have to bring a few new people each time. Better still is to rotate the hosting of these. If you and some of your single friends live near each other the progressive dinners are always a fun combination of eating, socializing and some exercise. Walking a little bit after a meal makes for better digestion anyways.
One of the ruts into which we can fall is the list of friends with whom we regularly socialize. We almost need to attend 2 or 3 potluck dinners a month, with slightly different host/hostesses of each. Then we are ensuring that we really are meeting new people and not just meeting the same singles we always meet.
Ladies, remember to consider younger men for dating. The social taboo on that has lifted. And often the are more pursuing of you than your age-group peers. Just, keep and open mind for who is pursuing you!
