Dating advice first few dates
“Social media has improved dating, increasing the selection of people you can meet, but it has also posed some problems, too.
One of those issues is the ease in rejecting people.
No matter what your age, everyone loves a thoughtful compliment. By the time you’re in your 50s, your friends likely know some other folks who are dating and also want to avoid downloading Tinder.
To ensure that your flattery isn’t misconstrued, try to make your initial compliments about your date’s personality or physical features from the neck up, like “You have such a winning smile” or, “I just love your sense of humor.” You’re aiming for charming, not creepy. If you don’t feel good about the way you look, you’re going to be preoccupied when you go on a date.
But this rejection is not to be taken to heart,” says Kulaga.
If date one jumps right to the serious and tough parts of life that even take a toll on the strongest couples, you may be weeding out (or they may be weeding out) some really amazing people to have fun with.” Just because you’re not 22 anymore doesn’t mean you have to accept any kind of relationship that’s offered to you.
If you’re over 50 and still want to play the field, or you’re looking for someone who shares a passion for traveling instead of spending nights in, it’s your prerogative to be honest about those wishes.
While we’re not suggesting you send anything explicit to your date, a text reminding them that you can’t wait to see them again can go a long way.
Even if asking someone out has never crossed your mind before, why not give it a try?
