Finding Love After 50
People 50+ can experience the best love of their lives. Find out why boomers have what it takes.

There are a growing number of boomers that are single and looking for love. And while statistics and media hype claim that the chances of getting married goes down significantly with every decade that passes, the reality is that most people after 50 will experience the best love of their lives. So don’t believe the hype. People in their 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and yes, even 80’s are dating more than ever. They are falling in love and creating strong and intimate relationships. In fact, they put their children’s and grandchildren’s generations to shame. And this is why…


Most adults 50+ have…

 

 

  • Enough life experience to understand what is truly important from what is not. They know who they are and know what works for them and what does not. No more games. They understand the value of relationships and appreciate their significant others more.
  • Learned from past relationships. They have either lived through a divorce or death of a spouse and can reflect on what went right and wrong and why. The ability to gain insight and lose ego is at its best. This is what enables you to create more intimacy and less drama.
  • More freedom from which to enjoy life. At this juncture, chances are children have left the nest and careers are firmly established. Some people have already transitioned careers into leisure time and are open to new adventures and life experiences. Remember, 50 is the new 30; 60 is the new 40; 70 is the new 50. There is a lot of life yet to live and a lot of love yet to give.
  • The desire and capacity to enjoy sex to its fullest. No more concerns about pregnancy; no more concerns about performance (thank you, medical advances); no more concerns about self-consciousness (you’ve probably seen it all by now). The mature adult is comfortable with their sexuality and has the confidence to express themselves freely. Confidence, know-how, and attitude far outweigh the allure of a younger body—at least in the long run :-).  

So if you are over 50 and wondering if there is still love in your future, I’m here to tell you YES!. Get out and meet people. Enjoy new experiences. Get on an internet dating site. Take a risk. Love after 50 is your best love yet. You have the maturity, wisdom, confidence that like-minded people want and desire. You are in the time of your life when you have the time, resources, and energy to try new things and meet new people. Take advantage of all the other fabulous single people out there who are waiting to meet you!
