  1. The Dos and Don’ts of 50+ Dating

    Comment
    Article by Angela Dyson Don’t google him. That’s for later. For when and if you have any doubts. Do give him your full attention. Unless there is a sick child/parent/friend in the picture, keep your phone in your bag and not on the table. Listen. Ask questions. And equally important, is he listening to you and asking you questions? Take your time. There’s no need to rush. This is not a job interview. For either of you. Don’t overshare. Don’t start the date by presenting your relationship C.V. and don’t ask for his. Start light and fun. This is just the aperitif, not the main course. Do give the guy a chance. Open your mind and leave your list at home. This is not on-line shopping (although it can...
  2. Ways to prevent empty nest syndrome being a key factor in divorce

    Comment
    By Peter Jones, founder of Jones Myers family law specialist  As anxious and excited students leave home for the first time to embark on the next stage of their life at college or university, their departure also marks a new chapter for their parents. For many ‘empty nesters’, this is the beginning of their lives without children in the house. It can also bring to the surface long suppressed irritations and tensions that have bubbled under the surface, but whose impact may have been lessened by the demands of children and busy lives. Two decades of hectic work and child care schedules can result in parents losing touch with each other and becoming different people to the couple who tied the knot. In today’s climate...
  3. New dating app Lumen is launched specifically for over 50s

    Comment
    If you’re single, and want the ease of a dating app to meet new people, but have been put off by bad experiences on apps like Tinder, then you’re in for some good news. This month Lumen was launched – the first ever app-only product specifically for over 50s. While over 50s dating sites exist, the app’s founders believed these weren’t targeting the active, youthful over 50s they knew, and so they have created an app specially for this demographic. “The majority of single over-50s we know are tech-savvy, active, and looking for their next adventure. But this isn’t the reality we see reflected in the dating industry,” says Antoine Argouges, Lumen CEO. “Lumen finally provides a contemporary solution which over-50s can rely on...
  4. Why Tini Owens continues to play the waiting game for a divorce

    Comment
    By Peter Jones, founder of Jones Myers family law specialist  The high-profile case of Tini Owens has highlighted loud and clear that being unhappily married does not justify being granted a divorce. The Supreme Court ruling that Mrs Owens must stay in a “loveless” marriage to her husband is the culmination of an expensive and protracted legal battle with wider repercussions. The validity of the original evidence that 68-year-old Mrs Owens gave to illustrate the “unreasonable behavior” of 78-year-old Hugh Owens lies at the heart of this landmark case. Mrs Owens filed for divorce in 2015 before moving out of their marital home and the case escalated when Mr Owens refused to agree to a divorce. In 2016 a Family Court judge rejected Mrs Owens 27...
  5. Dating after Bereavement: Creating your Dating Profile and being Happy with your Body Image

    Comment
    Dating Again as a Widow If you’ve been widowed for some time you may find yourself considering the possibility of dating again. This is a bold move and if you would prefer to meet other bereaved singles, joining a niche-dating site specifically for widows or widowers, could be the way to go. Your dating profile is very important: ‘your shop window’, if you like. Creating a profile should be taken seriously and needs the very best you can give in order to capture the eye and interest of potential matches. A poor self-image can make us self-conscious and withdrawn and this is not something you would want to reflect on your dating profile. Taking stock of how others see us can be an...

  8. Dating over 50: What to wear on a date French style

    Comment
    Article by Meredith Keeve a.k.a. the Wandering Parisian Smart Date Dressing. Intelligent and Appealing Choices for Optimistic Encounters or ‘Does my Anxiety look big in this?’ Hooray, you’ve got a date in the diary. The person you met on line, or in the queue at the Supermarket has proposed a coffee or a drink, or gone way out on a limb and actually invited you to dinner.

Immediately ELIMINATE any outfit you considered that didn’t seem like a perfect solution. Please do NOT choose anything that makes you wonder whether you look: Too short, too fat, too thin, too busty, too pale –...
  9. The Parisian approach to Dating over 50

    Comment
    Article by Meredith Keeve a.k.a. the Wandering Parisian   Put away your pull bra or Dating Tips for Fifty Plus ! I didn’t even know what a ‘pull bra’ was until I lived in the UK. The notion is not formulated by the French. While the world at large is very aware of the charms of a Femme d’un Certain Age, the particular allure of the mature French woman in many ways remains a mystery. Which is quite exactly the point. And why you put away that pull bra. Realistically speaking, your charms at fifty plus are probably not of the flesh, or certainly not of the flesh of 20 or 30 or even 40. That being the case, putting too much of it on display is not a good plan. For French women of...
