Dating advice for over
Now, the ones who lose out are the ones who go to a dating website.
Not only has the way to meet people changed but you have probably changed quite a bit from when you were in your 20s or 30s.
It's simply become the easiest and most efficient way to meet someone.
And it's no longer stigmatized to say you met on Match.com, JDate, Our Time or Plenty of Fish. Knowing what site to go to can help but you also may just have to experiment with a few different sites to see which one feels best and seems like it has kindred spirits.
Schedule a meeting and pick that Matchmaker’s brain and hire one if you can. How can you evaluate whether you want a second date? If you like him and feel comfortable with him – yes go out again! What’s the best way to turn down a second date or turn down the opportunity for a first one?
*Remember an important rule: “You get invited, you go, and you never know who you are going to meet.” Hence, whenever you get invited out, whether it’s a party, a gathering, a dinner, etc., even if you don’t feel like going, you go.

I find that people over 50 tend to believe that no one would possibly be interested in them because they perceive themselves to be "old." The good news is 50 is the new 30!
Try This Writing Exercise: In order to get clarity on what you're looking for, it can sometimes be helpful to make a list of how you've changed as well as how what you're looking for has changed. There are more 50-somethings out there than any other age demographic.
You Will Need Patience and Perseverance I tell people that if you hate dating, date more.
*Schedule an appointment with a Matchmaker and at the very least get some good dating advice from that professional.
Matchmakers have been listening and observing what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to dating for years.
The bad news is that sometimes people lie or misrepresent themselves.
This is particularly true, I'm told, when it comes to a person's age and, unfortunately, sometimes the marital status as well. You may be tempted to fudge your age or status but let me just tell you that there will be no easy way to disclose the truth without risking anger and mistrust from the person you deceived.
