  1. Fab after Fifty: How to build a successful new relationship in your 50s and beyond

    Article by Cat Williams ‘How to build a successful new relationship’. Cat Williams, relationship counsellor and author of ‘Stay Calm and Content’ explores. As a relationship counsellor I have explored first-hand how relationships develop and mature, and why they sometimes run into problems.  I am often asked if there is a ‘secret’ to building and maintaining a strong midlife relationship.  Here is my answer… The first thing we need to recognise is that when we first meet someone and see them as a potential ‘love interest’ we are immediately assessing how that person makes us feel about ourselves.  We might like their appearance, or how interesting they are to talk to, but only if they appear to like us as well, or ‘make us feel good’ in some way,...
  2. Top Tips for dating over 50 from Dr Wendy Walsh, author of The 30-Day Love Detox

    Interview by Ceri Wheeldon For those of us returning to dating over 50 it can be daunting, especially as the landscape of dating has changed enormously since we first dated in our teens and twenties. I had the opportunity to catch up with Dr Wendy Walsh, psychotherapist and author of several books on relationships, on her thoughts and tips for dating over 50. Online Dating So many people confuse the purpose of online dating. The whole purpose of online dating is to MEET online- not date online! If you do connect with someone online try to meet them as soon as possible. If you agree to talk on the phone, you are not committed to actually meeting that person. Likewise, your first meeting- ideally casually over coffee, should not be thought of...
  3. Over-50 Life-Lover Seeking Same

    Guest article You’ve been around the block, you know the kind of travel you enjoy, the sights you like to see, the activities and pace that suits you. You’ve also likely learned along the way that adventuring with others who share your general-to-quirky preferences is a lovely way to meet people – and sometimes even find love. Unless you’ve had a pretty heavy blindfold on, you also know that there are a lot of travel options specifically designed for singles looking to meet significant others. And for over-50s single travellers, there are oodles of holiday-planners out there designed to help you do just that. One of the many unique advantages about meeting someone on a holiday is that you’re (hopefully) interacting with the...
  4. Stereotypes do not exist when looking for love over 50

    Article by Dr Lynda Shaw  Why do people look for love after 50?  Is it because they dislike being on their own?  Or perhaps they just want someone to go to dinner parties and on holiday with?   Is it because they need someone to help look after the house?  Of course the answers vary depending on whom we speak to, so to find out more I asked a few people and quickly realised that stereoptypes and ageism do not exist. For instance, one chap told me that he used to think he was in love with his wife whom he married in his twenties.   But since their divorce he had met a woman who had really shown him what love truly means.  I...
  5. Fifty Shades of Grey

    By eHarmony There comes a time in every man’s life when he must acknowledge his increasing years and alter his lifestyle. For some situations the correct course of action is clear – no man over the age of 30 should wear skinny jeans; a baby seat won’t fit into a two-seater sports car; and that third pint on Friday night will still be having an effect three days later. However, men are often in a quandary when the first flecks of grey start to show. Do they embrace their faded follicles or restore their locks with hair dye? This common dilemma can strike at any moment. All it takes is a careless remark by a close friend and suddenly each morning is spent counting those pesky silver strands. Wanting to...
  6. 6 Online Dating Tips For Mature Daters

    Article by Liz Looking for love at any age isn’t always easy, but it can be especially daunting when you’re fifty or over.  You might not know where to start or how to meet people you’ll click with. This is particularly true when it comes to online dating, but don’t be quick to discard the idea of searching for love on the internet. It’s safe to say that by now you probably know someone who has found the love of their life online, so why shouldn’t it work for you too?  Here are some online dating tips for mature daters to get you started. 1. Choose your online dating site wisely. There are hundreds of online dating sites on the internet, but it’s important to sign-up with one you feel...
  7. Dating again and new relationships after 50: are all the good men taken?

    Article by Andrea Fritz It’s difficult to walk back into the dating scene after many years of being away from it. The years can knock your confidence and self-assurance. In fact, a lot of women are so intimidated by the very prospect of dating again that they shut off the possibility altogether and give up on finding any new relationship. Another firm belief in the minds of those dating again in later years is that all the good men have gone: swallowed up in happy marriages. But this attitude is neither helpful nor particularly accurate. Here are a few ways to start dating again and finding a good man for yourself… Love yourself It might sound like...
  8. Dating over 50: What NOT to do on a first date – from a man’s perspective!

    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Most of my single female friends complain that there seems to be a lack of ‘good’ men who are single, available and willing to date women over 50. I am always being asked ‘surely you must know someone normal you can introduce me to?’. I was surprised to have recent conversations with some single male friends who seemed to be of a similar opinion – but in reverse. They seem to feel it’s impossible to meet single suitable women to form lasting relationships with. And for the men they say it often goes wrong on the very first date. So what did the men have to say about they think women are doing wrong on a first date? First date mistakes Trying too hard, playing too hard and...
  9. Are you ready to start dating again after divorce, separation or partner loss?

    Article by Teresa Welch How do you know if you are ready for dating again after relationship collapse? For some the thought of dating again fills them with dread, and for others they can’t wait to get back in the dating scene. Having suddenly become single myself after a 12 year marriage ended and with two very small children, dating was the last thing on my mind, and naively at only 34 I thought that when I was ready it would be easy. How wrong could I have been? No one tells you that your life will never be the same again. Different, but never the same. Through chance in the early day’s I did go on a couple of dates. I was going through a divorce...
  10. Does falling in love mid-life contribute to mid-life weight gain?

    Article by Fabafterfifty If you start a relationship in your 50s, it may not be just changing hormones contributing to that fat around the middle!  It seems getting comfortable in a new relationship may also be partly to blame. 90 per cent of women put on weight when they settle down with a long term partner, with the average female gaining 16 lbs, a new survey has revealed. The study showed that a 56 per cent majority started to gain weight four to six months into the relationship; with most citing that this was when they reached the ‘comfy’ period. Romantic dinners for two Of the 1000 women surveyed 35 per cent cited an increase in cosy nights in as a key reason for their weight gain. One...
