  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. 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...
  3. 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 A poor self-image can make us self-conscious and withdrawn and this is not something you would want to reflect on your dating profile.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...
  4. 5 Tips to Dealing with a Long-Distance Relationship

    Comment
    Article by Carole Ann Rice Life and love are two things that, at times, seem mutually exclusive. We meet people who scream ‘the one’, yet it never seems to be the time or place for us to align. When love is stretched to its limits by geography, it seems even more unlikely than ever that it can’t work out… right? Top Life Coach, Carole Ann Rice knows how important it is to negotiate and be honest when it comes to love. So, she’s revealing her 5 top tips to dealing with a longdistance relationship (maybe pass these one to Cole and Payne?): 1. KEEP COMMUNICATING – in the digital age, it’s easier than ever before to have a long-distance relationship. With services such as Skype, Facebook, and Whatsapp, and ever...
  5. 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. As you agreed your mind began spinning with wardrobe worries and outfit anxiety. So lets stay French, and exchange anxiety for nonchalance. 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 –...
  6. 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...
  7. What to wear when you start dating over 50

    Comment
    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...

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

    Comment
    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...
  10. Dating over 50: What is Ghosting?

    Comment
    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...
