Fabafterfifty: Dating

  1. What to wear when you start dating over 50

    Article by Ceri Wheeldon When it comes to dressing for your dating journey it is best to be prepared! The last thing you want when you have a date in the diary is to panic about what to wear. Better to plan ahead.  I was watching an old episode of friends recently where Rachel was accusing Monica of ruining her ‘third date sweater’. So we know that she planned her  dating wardrobe!! I spent many years working as a headhunter, and always suggested to my candidates that they planned their wardrobe for a minimum of 3 job interviews, so I suggest you put together at least 3 different outfits to suit the sorts of places you would envisage going to on a first date, and 2 outfits for a second date. Remember...

  3. Dating over Christmas: Save your Dating Adventures for the New Year

    over 50 dating tips christmas image
    Article by Olga Levancuka Christmas, lights, festivities, caroling!  Everyone is out and about. Shopping, cuddling, hugging, kissing and smiling. And here we are, happy by ourselves. We know where we are with everything in life, we are comfortable with what we’ve got, yet with the New Year approaching, we feel that we have to set some kind of resolutions. We feel energised, full of expectations for the year ahead and even ready for a challenge. If you’re single, then dating is probably on your list. And that is exactly where it should stay at this time of the year. Let me explain. Christmas is traditionally a time of year when rationale goes out of the window and sometimes we can make bad decisions about things that we think will make our life better and that includes dating but dating...
  4. Dating over 50: What is Ghosting?

    over 50 dating what is ghosting image
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon When it comes to dating over 50 there are so many new obstacles to navigate. Dating has changed since we started dating first time around!! A new term that crops up in dating today is ‘ghosting’. I asked dating and relationship expert Olga Levancuka what exactly ‘ghosting’ was – and as it happened to be halloween, it seemed like a good time to share a quick video clip on the topic. It seems that ghosting is when you meet somebody, have several dates, seem to be getting along really well, and suddenly,everything goes quiet, and communication stops. So why do men ‘disappear’? (To be fair some women do it too) As Olga explains in this video, men don’t want aggravation in their lives. They don’t...
  5. Tactile Tactics: How the firmness of the chair impacts the outcome of the date

    dating over 50 chair choice image
    Article by Phillip Adcock Looking for love in all the wrong places If you find you’re luckier at cards than you are at love, you need to pay more attention to what you’re sitting on when out on a date. Scientists have long known that people sitting on hard surfaces make firmer business decisions, while those sitting on soft cushions tend to be a “softer touch.” When deciding where to go out on a date, then, you may want to factor in what you’ll be sitting on during your liaison. Do you want your partner to be a tough negotiator or more compatible? And don’t overlook the other things you touch while on your date.  The type and weight of cutlery in the restaurant and the carpet on...
  6. Looking for Love After 50 Online – The Best Senior Dating Sites

    best online daring sites over 50 image
      It’s been more than 20 years since Match.com, the world’s first official dating site went live and caused a stir amongst the online community. It’s safe to say that the popularity of online dating has increased dramatically since then, and today, there are over 1,400 matchmaking sites catering to all ages. Studies estimate that 1 in 5 relationships now start online, and those over 50 years of age make up for almost half of those looking for love in cyberspace. Being over 50 doesn’t have to be a hindrance when it comes to dating, and there is an abundance of sites that cater to those who are back on the market. The term ‘grey dating’ has even been coined, due to the influx of over 50’s who seek out companionship and more on the web. If there...
  7. Why Autumn is the Perfect Time to Fall in Love?

    50plus dating- falling love in autumn image
    Article by Olga Levancuka   Even if you love Autumn, the end of the Summer season means it’s the end of BBQs, bathing suits and carefree time. For many people, the end of summer signifies the end of fun and even for people who don’t have kids, the ‘back to school’ mindset can awaken old anxieties about going back to school. On top of that, the change in temperature and light will also affect your mood so perhaps the last thing on your mind is dating. On one hand, you may not be feeling like going on a date quest but on the other hand you’re probably thinking ‘But who am I going to spend Christmas with?’ The good news is that autumn can be the best time to meet someone. Yes,...
  8. Dating with confidence: looking for love in later years

    Dating over 50 first dares image
    Going on a date can produce a roller coaster of emotions at any age. Putting yourself on ‘the scene’ involves a degree of vulnerability and exposure. But with age and wisdom comes protection. Many women who have entered the dating scene over 50 full of trepidation about what they might find actually discover an inner strength that may have been absent at a younger age. It is all too easy to imagine the social world of dating as fraught with pitfalls, but rather than flailing around, unsure of how to act, older daters bring with them the confidence of a fully formed personality, honed through experience and brimming with confidence about who they are and who they want to offer their time to. Knowing your own mind That’s not to say...
  9. Why pre-nups enable openness and transparency to flourish

    50plus prenup image
    By Peter Jones, founder of Jones Myers family law specialist The increasing popularity of pre-nup agreements reflects how couples view their open and transparent nature as a positive factor when planning their wedding. Far from castigating the agreements as clinical and unromantic, more couples are showing that while seeking to protect inherited or family money, they also want to do ‘the right thing’ by each other – and by any children. In our vast experience, too many people marry without proper discussions about important issues such as families and careers and entering into a pre-nup promotes healthy dialogue. Also, a high percentage of couples who marry are older and have more income and capital. The disclosure aspect means that both are committed to openness. Pre-nups have grown in popularity and influence since a 2010 Supreme Court ruling recommended that, although...
  10. Are dating apps the way to find love over 50

    best dating apps for over 50s
    Article by Olga Levancuka   Yes, believe it or not, apps may be way forward to finding love over 50. Why waste your time by going to the events or pay hefty fees by registering on  online dating sites when your dream partner  is literally a finger tap away, and often for free. Or is it so? On the first glimpse dating via apps is exciting, direct and provides you with that feeling of spontaneity and living dangerously. On a second glimpse, it is just like every other way of dating, face-to-face, blind date, arranged date, online date or by meeting a person at an event. So before you can  jump to conclusions  saying ‘it’s all about apps‘ it’s not. It’s all about putting yourself out there. It’s about stating that you are...
