Baby Boomers Rediscover Your Dating Groove

By: Inter Valley Health Plan





Despite what the “20- somethings” would have you believe, dating and falling in love are not just for the young in age. Your desire for love and companionship has not diminished simply because you have grown older. Whether you want to find a new passionate relationship or are simply seeking a companion, there is no reason to shy away from the dating scene. However, getting into the swing of dating may at first seem a bit awkward and even scary. This is perfectly understandable and so much has changed since many boomers were involved in this stressful, breathtaking and usually very exciting experience known as dating. Relax a bit, help is on the way. In this article, you will learn a few of the best Baby Boomer dating tips to help get the ball rolling.

Enlist the Help of Friends and Family

Do not hesitate to tell family members, co-workers and friends that you are interested in meeting someone for either a friendly or intimate relationship. Sometimes those around you are just really out of it when it comes to picking up on subtle hints. Shout it out! Ask if they know any single friends that may be interested in meeting you. Usually everyone knows at least one person that is tired of being the “fifth wheel”, attending a sports event alone or dining solo.

Get Involved

This can’t be stressed strongly enough: If you stay home day after day, night after night, no one will know you are available. Get out of the house and become involved. Join a class, learn to dance, take up a hobby or craft. Learn a sport that you find interesting. Have you always thought about learning tennis, golf or even sky-diving? What are you waiting for? Now’s the time! You’ll have fun and just maybe there will be another interesting single there having fun right with you. Coffee afterwards?

Volunteer activities are a great way to meet others with similar passions and interests. Whether it is through your church, political or social causes, you will become involved with people of like-minds.

Give Online Dating a Chance

Looking for love in cyberspace is really a different experience for most baby boomers. The idea did not exist when many Boomers were in their original dating days. The technology was not even in use. The closest thing available was the personal ads in newspapers and that was considered “out there“for many. But, today there exists a brave new world full of technological wonders. You can log-on to your computer and within a very short time, have access to a smorgasbord of singles looking for the same things you are.

That’s not to say that internet dating sites are the perfect solution. They are simply one more option. There are sites that cater to older daters. This would be a good place to start. Carefully browse through each site to see if it promotes a feeling of trust. Once you’ve looked around a bit and are familiar with how the site works, don’t be afraid to start making new connections. BE AWARE: The internet has opened up a whole new world of dating possibilities but it also provides a landscape for danger. Be as or more cautious than you would be off-line. Never give out personal information. When you are ready to meet your new friend face-to-face, plan that meeting to happen in a public place.

Remember, step up to the possibilities. Keep yourself open to all the opportunities for connecting to others and that new friend or lover could be there waiting for you.
