seniors dating service online advice – how to get back into dating if you’ve been with someone for a long time

One of the hardest things in the world after your world has been turned upside by a change in your life circumstances is finding new love or friend interests. When you are over 50 or 60, it doesn’t feel the same as when you were in your early twenties.

Everything can feel like its moved on…the way you meet people has changed, you have fears, you have hang ups..oh perhaps more money and a confidence in certain circumstances, but the whole dating and friendship thing can seem daunting.

Fear not. Many have taken the plunge again and would love to take you by the hand and steer you through – take courage and hear the experiences and stories of others who have taken that first step. We’ve listened and have compiled some of the insights we thought would be worth sharing with you if you’re looking to dip your toe in the water again.

Feel Like It’s About You

Being a part of a couple for a while will certainly take some of your individuality away. Take advantage of this time on your own to find that individuality again. Learn new hobbies, find old friends, and treat yourself with respect.

The Future is a Fresh Chapter

Your past is a fundamental part of you and who you are. That said you are starting a new chapter, a new leaf. Let go of the past. If you have troubled feelings from the past, once you work through these feelings, you’ll find yourself in a much better place to go on with your life.

Find Your Interests

Did you have a passion for walking or dancing before. Pick up that map again, put on your dancing shoes and get out there. You may find that you can rediscover yourself through those interests.

Find new interests

Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn how to paint or go kayaking. Taking up new interests now will help you rediscover qualities about yourself you may have forgotten. It will also get you out and meeting new people.

Learn to enjoy your own company

After living with someone for a while, it can be difficult to enjoy doing things alone. Find ways to have fun on your own.

Keep Fit and Love Yourself

Take care of yourself. If you’ve gained a few extra pounds, find a way to get some exercise. Eat healthily and take time to pamper yourself. If you feel good about the way you look and feel, others will too.

Reconnect with old friends

Track down old friends with whom you’ve lost touch over the years. Whether you find you’ve still got lots in common or you’ve both moved on, it will likely enrich your life anyway.

There are lots of others refinding their passions in life…be part of the fun…you only have one life…make the most of it…go on ..get involved and find some amazing people just like you.
