  3. Online Dating over 50: How I Rescued My Sister from a Romance Scam Criminal

    Comment
    Article By Shelley Frost I didn’t want to believe it. I pretended like everything was fine. But when my sister’s online boyfriend told her to call him King and he will call her Queen, I finally accepted that she was caught in a romance scam.   Why did this little detail pull the trigger for me to begin an investigation? I was guessing that some of these scammers juggle multiple victims. The chances that he will mistakenly say the name of one of his ladies while talking to another is too risky. Having his women respond to the name Queen ensures that he won’t screw up anytime soon, and the money keeps flowing.   But at the time when I deduced her guy was a bad guy, I knew very little about...
  4. Relationships over 50: 7 surprising relationship lessons you can learn from movies 

    Comment
    Article by Dawud Gurevitch Whether you’re a filmophile, a filmophobe or somewhere in-between, movies can do much more than simply entertain us. Yes, the film industry exists primarily for this reason in exchange for our Netflix membership or our cinema ticket fee (before the pandemic) but did you realise that some movies can teach us surprising lessons about life and relationships? In this article I touch upon seven popular films that each reveal a different take on love and life in all its glory, which doesn’t mean that everything you will see and hear in them will be “sunshine and rainbows” as my wife likes to call it, but will mean that overall you get a realistic view of some of the very things we live for: love, laughter,...

  6. Dating over 50: How to Date during Lockdown

    Comment
    Interview by Ceri Wheeldon   We are living in highly unusual times. How do you go about dating in the context of Lockdown/quarantine? Do you put looking for a partner on hold ? I asked Maria Sullivan, dating expert and VP of Dating.com for her tips as to how to approach dating over 50 in lockdown. How has lockdown/quarantine changed people’s approach to dating? During lockdown, more people are turning to online dating to make connections. In our recent survey, we found that there has been an 82% uptick in global online dating since early March due to quarantining. Why should people consider ‘meeting’ someone new at the current time? Your dating life and the search for your soulmate is important. If you are at home along quarantining, it can get...
  7. What About Me? Maintaining a relationship with your ex-boyfriend’s kids post-breakup

    Comment
    Article By Dani Alpert How did I feel when my boyfriend Julian and I broke up after nearly eight years and the fate of my relationships with his kids, Nicole and Tyler, unknown? It felt like I’d been fired, asked to pack up my belongings and leave the house key under the mat. For years, my identity had everything to do with Julian and the kids. I contorted, knotted, and sacrificed, investing my time and emotional energy into our relationships. And over time, I fell in love with them, only to see it all implode. I remember my first thought was, “What happens now? What happens to me and Nicole and Tyler? Could I still call myself the Girlfriend Mom? Was I the Ex-Girlfriend Mom?” The kids and I...
  8. Expectancy: the secret to finding love at any age

    Comment
    Article by Penelope Winters Many women spend time obsessing over which attitude will best serve them in their quest for love in later life; whether they have loved and lost before or are yet to experience the delight that is first love. One question many friends have asked me over the years is if it, and by “it” I mean the relationship they have been waiting for, will happen when they least expect it or if they should approach the task of finding a partner in a mentally pro-active way: meditating, visualising, affirming all with a view to magnetising a wonderful man into their lives. Both recommendations have their merits, some think that a boiling pot never boils and that by concentrating too much energy on...
  9. Can You Ignore These Red Flags in a Relationship?

    Comment
    Starting a new relationship in your 50s and beyond can be daunting. The red flags you see in a relationship aren’t always a sign of trouble. You may still be able to have a successful and happy relationship, even if your relationship does have some characteristics that could cause issues for others. Sometimes, what may be red flags for some don’t apply to others. Plus, you may have a healthy system for overcoming challenges before they become too big for you. Consider these red flags: Your family hates your partner. One common red flag in a relationship is that your family disapproves of your partner. However, this doesn’t mean you have to separate or break up. Does your family dislike your partner? Do they criticise them every time they...
