I’ll leave you with this–Beautiful women who are over 50: Michelle Pfeiffer, Andie Mac Dowell, Catherine Keener, Oprah, Madonna, Kim Basinger, Kim Catrall, Christie Brinkley, Diane Sawyer, Jennifer Grey Best of luck!A Pariah If you’re an over 50 guy and dating after a divorce from a long-term marriage, you’re likely to become confused, frustrated, and potentially worse, a pariah to single women.Harry, divorced at 57, told me this story: “I always wanted to be a good dancer.My ex complained that I wasn’t a strong enough leader and for once she was right,” he admitted.Jackie, I am approaching 50, and just over one year separated from my husband. As I look forward and begin to think about the possibility of future relationships, I can see that dating over 50 might be difficult. So, not only does a large age range, (let’s say 42-57 perhaps?
On the positive side, the age 50-plus daters seem to be pretty darn smart when choosing a date-mate.
There are a myriad of reasons why this is true, but I’ll focus on a few and offer suggestions on how you might avoid becoming a cautionary tale and become a hot prospect instead….
There is such a difference between what is available for men and woman.
I notice that lots of people who were married for maybe 10 years or less seem to say…we got married early, found out it didn’t work, and then later remarried and have found long term, happiness with their next partner/spouse. ) increase the number of potential men for you, but I think you will see that age is only a number, unlike it was, say if you were 30, dating a 20 year old. Go on dates, but don’t force the serious relationship.
What I also notice is that I don’t seem to hear any/as many happy stories about people (like me) who were married 20-25 years, got divorced, and then found happiness/ marriage, etc again. I have always believed that 50’s is in fact, no-man’s land, whether you are single, married, divorced or widowed, the reason being that you aren’t really young anymore, but you aren’t old either. I am me and all I can do is live life to my potential. The thing that bothered me most about your email is this part: You write: “found happiness/marriage etc.
