Age can be largely defined by someone’s perspective and attitude, and today 50 really can be the new 40! You have so many opportunities to meet singles and try different experiences, so what do you need to know when dating a 50-year-old man?
1. Ready for his time
Men in their 20s, 30s, and 40s are still proving themselves. Many are raising kids. This man is middle-aged, part of Generation X, may have had a mid-life crisis, and likes enjoying things that he missed while being tied down. He makes more time for his interests, but he’s still capable of making together time.
2. Less concerned about status and career
There were decades to worry about such things. He should have his finances in order, a home that is almost paid for and has time for exploring the dating world. His career, although it could be at its peak, doesn’t demand as much attention as when he was starting out.
3. Close to his family
He has had at least one long-term relationship. He might have close ties to his children and, possibly, to young grandchildren. These connections are important, but he believes his children are responsible for their own lives.
4. Thinking about retirement
He may have 15 to 20 years left to work, but how much he earns and saves now will greatly impact his golden years. He may not pursue a relationship that requires changing employment or location if this is the case. He is financially wise and will splurge on special occasions and budget for his favorite things.
5. Slowing down
Physically, he can still do many activities and have intimate adventures, but he tires more easily. Some men in this age group seek medical assistance for their sex lives, but they are still interested and active. Be supportive and remind him, that you’re there to date the whole person he is. There are still many ways to enjoy a healthy sex life at this age, and much fun to be had.
6. Set in his ways
We’re all creatures of habit, but we have more flexibility in our younger years. The 50-year-old man can be attached to his routines, including mealtimes, how he spends days off, and grooming rituals. He may not go out on a weeknight if it will conflict with his bedtime or stay out too late on the weekend. He may embrace hobbies he hasn’t tried in decades, such as riding a motorcycle.
7. Romantic and loyal
If this man came out of a long marriage, he enjoyed the stability. He may still be friends with former partners. He needs to find himself as a lover. He may not want to remarry, but he could feel comfortable in a serious relationship. Although he might take his time to commit, getting to know him will help you understand his relationship goals.
