  1. Never too Late for Love – Revelling in Midlife Love!

    1
    Article by Jackie Walker What does the term middle aged love birds do to you – does it make you cringe? For some reason we have an inbuilt thermometer which denotes that when our kids start finding love/sex/romance then we have to stop it!  It’s something for the younger generation. Just think about it for a second, when you were growing up your Mum and Dad didn’t ‘do it’ did they?!  Remember the discussions in the playground? Well, now you’re one of the middle aged parents – oh shock horror!  And worse still you’re single and want to have all those wonderful things in your life. There’s an added problem – it’s not just the kids who think yuck, it’s your married friends and those less warm spirited singles who haven’t got their own love...

    Article by Karen Mooney   So the kids have grown up and you’ve just returned to the dating scene after being married for years. But dating is a whole different ball game now you’re in your fifties. Well don’t be disheartened just follow my four Golden Rules and make that good first impression, otherwise there will never be a second date. You’d be surprised how easily we can blow it, by saying, wearing or doing the wrong thing. Where to meet Choose a mutually convenient venue, lunchtime is good and a snack is better than a large meal – offer to go dutch. Don’t go somewhere too noisy – the cinema and theater are big no no’s for a first date as the whole idea is that you talk to each...

    Louise Northwood Do you know how to ‘wink’ online?  Simple Guide to the language of love – Internet dating over fifty Profile- A written review, of which you are, what you like, who you would like to meet, should be the   truth, interesting and appealing.

  4. Mid-life dating: sex with someone new

    Comment
    Aricle written  by Christine Webber, psychotherapist and life coach Many SWOFties are seeking new partners and reigniting their love lives. If you cast your mind back to before you lost your virginity, the chances are that you were anxious about it. Getting sexually active again, after a break, can feel equally nerve-racking. But, take heart. Basically the act hasn’t changed since you last did it! And hopefully you’ll fit well with your new lover, and you’ll have a good time. In 2010, there are so many mid-life, single women that the Department for Work and Pensions has given them their own acronym – SWOFties (single women over fifty). And lots of SWOFties are seeking new partners and reigniting their love lives. Isn’t it great that so many of us of ‘a certain...
  5. Midlife Dating no need to accept a Single Life

    Comment
     The LoveGeist Report findings Humans are living longer, healthier lives than ever before – the current average life expectancy for men is 79 and for women is 82. By 2029, around the time that many of today’s younger daters will be starting to enter their mature years, we expect to see a sharp jump in life expectancy, to 82 for men and 86 for women thanks to medical and scientific improvements. And as the Future Foundation trend Ageless Society explores, this change is not just about living for longer – it is about working for longer, feeling (and, thanks to science, looking) younger, being in better health and more active as a result, having higher expectations, rejecting being regarded as elderly and so much more. 50+ single people...
  6. Do You Feel Lonely at Christmas?

    Comment
    Article by Jackie Walker Are you Feeling the Love, or just Lonely? This time of year with its dark mornings and afternoons together with chilly weather, does little to help us concentrate on what’s good in our lives.  Add to that the sounds of Christmas, the pictures perpetrated by the media on what a happy time this is, time to celebrate with family, friends and that special someone. Many find Christmas lonely if they are not in a relationship It’s little surprise that so many find Christmas crushingly lonely if they are not in a relationship.  The internet dating sites take a huge leap in membership numbers at this time of year, for those who are looking for someone, and more often than not, anyone, who will fill the gap. I would...
  7. STIs Don’t Care about Grey Hair and Wrinkles

    Comment
    Article by Fabafterfifty The sexual health charity FPA has warned of rising sexually transmitted infection (STI) rates and poor sexual health in groups of men and women aged over 50. This is going unnoticed, says FPA, because despite the over 50s being sexually active and starting new sexual relationships, campaigns and services are only targeted at the young. Almost 13,000 men and women over the age of 45 were diagnosed with an STI in 2009, double the numbers in 2000. Last year more men over 45 got genital herpes than 16–19 year old men and over 5,000 men and women over 45 were diagnosed with genital warts in 2009 alone. Chlamydia diagnosis in women has also gone up 95% in nine years. And calls to the FPA helpline have shot up...
  8. Would you let a potential partner’s medical history affect your decision to date?

    Comment
    Article by Fabafterfifty I have a friend in her fifties who has re-entered the dating scene. When I asked her how she was getting on , she replied that it was more difficult when you met someone later in life, not because she wasn’t meeting perfectly nice men, but because she was only seeing someone for a second date if she was confident that they had no history of family health problems! Why? It seems that if she had been with someone for 20 years, and had 20 good happy years with someone, then she would have taken any health problems mid-life onwards as part of the package. What she didn’t want was to meet someone and have only 18 months of good times with a lifetime then spent being a nurse. Oh!!...
