Dating advice for over 50

I have lost count of how many times I heard the question, “Any competition?” or “Are there any other girls at school after him?I don’t mean to imply that you should date for the sake of healing misogyny, but rather dating for no other immediate reason than to simply enjoy someone’s company is, in and of itself, an act of liberation.It is fine to also date hoping to marry or remarry, but my point is to not make that the focal point of dating, right away.Certainly go ahead and bring up those lifestyle choices. We may want to discuss shared interests, politics, spirituality, and other topics, before diving into intimacy discussions.

Even more unfortunate, the competition increased as girls became women.And since I am mostly heterosexual and know it more thoroughly than queerness, I will focus on that type of dating here.Rather than project outdated, oppressive and very boring rules on her, embrace the beauty of a woman telling you exactly who she is and how she would like to be treated.It does not serve anyone to cling to tired old misogynistic patriarchal patterns, and dating later in life is a great time free yourself from those old patterns.Being married and with children is wonderful, but it is not a requirement in order to be a “real woman” — an expectation I grew up hearing and still occasionally encounter from the men in my life.
