Common Myths Dispelled: Why Dating After 50 Can Be Super Fun

In a society that is so obsessed with youth, it is easy to forget that today’s 50-year-olds are worlds apart from what quinquagenarians were like just a few decades ago. Perhaps now is a good time to debunk some of the false myths related to dating after 50.

The Myths And The Truth About Dating After 50

Let’s take a look at the most widespread myths regarding middle-aged people dating, as we explain why each one of them is false.

Myth #1: 50-year-olds don’t have enough energy to date. While this may have been true a few decades ago, in actual fact things are very different today. Today people in their 50s have great health, they enjoy a high standard of living and have a completely different lifestyle compared to that of decades ago. People in their 50s are now strong, healthy and full of beans.

Myth #2: People in their 50s don’t have the desire for physical contact. This is one of the biggest myths. People never lose their interest in or need for intimacy. By contrast, as we mature, we gain experience and become better romantic partners. In fact, it is more likely that a partner in their 50s will have enough experience to know how to make his partner happy.

Myth #3: Middle-aged people are narrow-minded. As with most generalizations, there is very little truth in this claim. In reality, people can be narrow-minded at every age – it is up to the individual to see life in an open way and be more accepting and modern in his views. Today’s 50-year-olds are up-to-date and sometimes even more modern in their views than 20-year-olds. We can thank their high levels of education and the media for it.

Myth #4: 50-year-olds carry too much emotional weight. To be fair, this is not factually wrong. But the way you interpret life experiences is totally up to you. Some might say that people in the fifth decade of their lives are carrying emotional baggage that may be a burden for their relationships. Others, however, may see it in a totally different light. As we grow older, we become more multi-dimensional by discovering that life is not black and white. People dating after 50 may have high standards (because they can compare with what they know), but they are also more empathic, understanding and insightful.

As with most things in life, age is a matter of perspective. If you are dating in your 50s, you should not let anyone categorize you just on the basis of your age. If you are thinking about dating someone in their 50s, you should not judge them on a criterion so shallow as age, depriving yourself of what may be a chance of finding true love.

You Are Doing This Every Day And It’s Destroying Your Relationship

In relationships that have been going on for a while, it is common to have arguments over the smallest of things. If you have an argument about something very silly and trivial and you can’t fathom what’s really brought it on, it may be that there are other, deeper causes for it. Read about some of the mistakes you may be making in your everyday life that are destroying your relationship little by little.

How These Habits Are Destroying Your Relationship

When the first period of your relationship is over, it is easy to make certain mistakes unbeknownst to you, really thinking they are perfectly alright and not realizing they may be the cause for much of the friction in your relationship.

Not giving yourself alone time. Being in a relationship is time-consuming and you will, of course, enjoy being with her. While it may be true that you need to spend time together and experience things in common, it is also vital that you save some time for yourself. Being consumed in a relationship is wrong because it essentially changes who you are and it deprives you of the air you need to breathe. Not having time to yourselves can cause bitterness and resentment, so leave some time aside for you and only you.

Making her spend too much time with your friends. Another relationship problem related to what you do with your time arises when you insist on both of you spending big chunks of it with your mates. As we said earlier, saving time for you is a must, so you can hang out with your friends during that time. Of course, it isn’t bad to invite her along sometimes and hang out together. However, you should remember that, as much as you love your friends, she is not just a friend – she is your girlfriend, and you should be devoting time to her too.

Not really listening. It is easy to make this mistake. As we get to know our other half we might feel we know enough and stop listening. Could be down to tiredness after a log day at work, could be because you’ve heard some of it before, or simply because you don’t want to hear her complaints or criticism, but blocking her out is wrong. It is disrespectful and she will notice if you keep doing it, so while it may be (barely) ok that you pretend to be listening once in a while; if it happens frequently it is bound to eat away at your relationship.

Criticizing her in front of others. This is really big no. No matter what she has done, how wrong she may have been and how annoying you may be feeling, you should never put her down in public. Keep your criticism and advice for when you are alone, as belittling her in front of others – even your closest of people – will create an ugly gap between you. You should be united and act as a strong team. Members of a  team don’t turn against one another, they cover for each other.

Now that you know about these small but significant relationship mistakes, you can stop destroying your relationship and start fortifying it by making small steps every single day.

Seducing Your Way Through Life: Do You Love To Flirt?

Flirting is so natural that all living creatures do it. And it (mostly) comes so easy sometimes that we don’t even realize we are doing it. But why do we love to flirt so much? What makes flirting such a pleasurable activity for both men and women?

The Reasons We Love To Flirt

There are many different reasons why we enjoy flirting so much. Today we will have a look at the most important among them.

It’s what nature wants us to do. Have you seen male peacocks flirt? Why do you think male peacock has such a gorgeous plume if not to show it off and attract female attention? Likewise, we groom ourselves to the nines and go out there to show our best selves to attract the attention of our chosen girl, simply following our primal instinct telling us to do so.

It is super fun. If flirting wasn’t so much fun, people wouldn’t be doing it so much. The whole process of flirting may be intimidating at first, but once you get the hang of it, it will come naturally and reward you greatly. The give and take of flirting can be amusing. Finding the right girl to flirt can turn your night out from a boring affair to the best night you can imagine.

It’s good for our self-esteem. A successful flirt – meaning one that gets the desired response – can make a guy feel like a million dollars. There is no doubt that when a girl flirts back, you feel important and attractive. There is no better confidence boost than her smile when you chat her up or a positive response to something you said. The feeling is priceless every time.

It’s good for your mind, too. But it isn’t just your confidence that is enhanced through flirting. It has been found that when we flirt, our mind works full steam. This is because we need to come up with clever things to say really quickly, so our brain is forced to act really fast or we will seem boring and silly. So, flirting makes you smarter too.

For whatever reason we may flirt, the one thing that’s for sure is that we love to flirt so much that we are not likely to ever stop doing it. From the warm feeling we get when our object of desire responds well to flirting, to the satisfaction we get when we come up with a clever ice-breaker, flirting is so entertaining and heart-warming that everyone loves it.
