I’m just back from presenting 2 workshops 2 hrs each covering different phases of online dating at a singles conference in Las Vegas. Most of the singles there were 40 years old and older. Pretty much all Baby Boomers. The workshops were very interactive, which was just great because the participants really got their money’s worth in terms of their investment of time and moola in attending.
One of the themes which emerged in both sessions as well as was point of conversation then at lunchtime was that Boomers at this stage in life, after 50 years old pretty much -want a different kind of relationship than when they were 20 somethings or even early 30s somethings.
When that is the case and you are dating after likely already having children and owning a small house, townhouse, or condo, those are important things to discuss in the date 3-5+. What do you want? Now that you have already had kids… what do you want now in a relationship?
Not only are these important things and questions to ask your date once you first determine whether or not their is the all-important imperative of In-Person Chemistry (not just the fantasy from Online Email exchanges). These are also important questions to pose to yourself! And Dating is the laboratory for vetting out the truth, testing, and refining.
Until you are well-matched for LIFE partnership… which may or may not at your age result in marriage
Happy Dating and Relationships,
