Dating After 60- Expectations Men Have of Women

Dating at any age can be stressful and somewhat intimidating but it can be especially difficult to contemplate dating again after you have been married for a number of years. If you are divorced or widowed, give yourself adequate time to cope and grieve for your loss and trust that you will know when it is time to start meeting women and to start dating again. Start slow at first, look to meet new friends and then gradually you will begin to connect with women you find attractive over time.

Some men come up with different strategies to meet women. One option is to go where you know that large numbers of women will be, such as social events where women are likely to outnumber the men in attendance. Any type of class such as a dance class, a cooking class or an art class is likely to fit the bill, as is a singles dance. Circulating with people and getting out there is the key to meeting a variety of women, according to marriage and family experts. Another option that is becoming more and more popular for men over 60 is to join one of the many online dating websites and to create an honest profile and then when you get responses decide which ones interest you.

What men expect of women after the age of 60 is very similar to what they looked for when they were younger. Men look for women who are attractive and take good care of themselves; they look for a nice smile and a friendly and enthusiastic personality; they look for a woman who will laugh at their jokes and a woman who will make them feel like they are the most desirable man in the world. Men look for honesty and respect from women and they do not like females who play any type of head games. Both men and women over the age of 60 are more aware of what they do and do not want in a partner and look for those qualities in the opposite sex.

Some men over the age of 60 go through a stage where they choose to date younger women but most discover that the age gap is too wide to bridge. For example a younger woman might very well have young children and wish to have another child whereas a man over 60 no longer wants to have children or be responsible for other people’s children. The interests, goals and histories of two people with a large age disparity is often a drawback to a serious future and many men over 60 discover that dating a younger woman demands a great deal of energy and inevitably does not bring back a man’s youth. Most men then decide that they need to be realistic and they look for a woman with whom they share more in common, which is to say a woman closer to their own age.
