If it’s been a few years since you were last single, there’re a few things we should fill you in on to make this a successful new chapter. Don’t worry, we’ll cover the bases. To get you up to speed, here’re the five ways dating has changed…
1. Almost everyone’s online
Once you get the hang of it, online dating is easier than you think and allows you to meet more potential suitors than ever before. There are even specific 40+ dating websites for you to meet like-minded matches. According to a 2017 study, nearly 40% of couples these days meet online and we bet that number’s only going up, so why not try it out!
2. Dating multiple people at a time
When you cast a wide net you catch a lot of fish, and the same goes for dating. When you were last on the market, talking with multiple suitors at the same time may have been frowned upon, but that’s not the case today. This means 40+ dating is totally on your own terms. Thanks to texting and the internet, it’s a lot easier to connect with multiple people. It’s also just more acceptable.
3. There’s more than marriage
40+ dating can be a great way to meet new people! It doesn’t always have to lead to something long-term or serious. Spend this time getting to know yourself again. Rediscover what you like and don’t like in a suitor. Casually dating is totally acceptable these days, just make sure you’re upfront about your intentions with matches first.
4. 40+ dating can be empowering
Before diving into the dating pool, think about exactly what you want from it. If you’re looking for something serious, don’t feel guilty about turning down someone who is only looking for something casual. And if you don’t feel ready for something exclusive, don’t feel under pressure to settle down. Feel empowered by your preferences and the life you have created for yourself so far.
5. Those thumbs need to work
When it comes to modern dating, texting is one of the most important skills to become comfortable with. It may sound simple, but it’s true! Since so much dating happens online now, this is probably how you’ll say hello to your matches or ask them out. Making a good first impression counts, be that online or in real life.
