Bette Davis once said that getting old is not for sissies. Well, many women would argue that the same comment applies to dating after 65. Not only are there statistically fewer men, but the dynamic of human engagement, and style of personal connection, has changed dramatically since we were dating in our 75’s. Also, a lifetime of love and loss has made many women distrustful and unwilling to get back into the dating game.
There are also faith-based sites like and where members can write and respond to anyone. There really are so many ways to meet men even after 65 – it simply takes a shift in mindset.
Most internet daters will meet at least one person they’re not that attracted to during the process. It’s totally normal and mirrors any other form of dating. Keep at it and when you do meet the perfect person you’ll know that it was worth the wait!
Because we are so busy, finding a date online is now part of everyday life and has absolutely no stigma attached to it at all. Where else can you find, chat to and choose potential dates from your own home and in your own time? The only thing you have to do is take the first step and join.
No matter how you like to chat — text, audio, or webcam — ChatJungle has the capabilities. Another way to get to know your fellow ChatJungle chatters is to check out their profiles and photos as well as play a game with them, like trivia, to break the ice.
Watch my interview with dating couch, David Wygant I promise that some of his senior dating advice will shock and surprise you!
For example, three simple ideas for creating dating opportunities include smiling genuinely, approaching men first and learning the art of flirting. His assessment requires a fundamental shift in thinking women must not be afraid to make the first move!
If someone you think looks interesting has looked at your profile and hasn’t sent you a message, please don’t give up hope! It’s still more common for the male members to be proactive but there’s nothing wrong with female members getting in there first. Men often love the confidence that comes with you making the first move.
The most important dating guideline is to simply do things you love. If you love museums, look for special events that will draw a crowd. If you have a passion for books, go and browse the magazines and chat with the man next to you. He may say “my wife and I…” and that’s totally fine. There should be no expectations when meeting new people. If you love sports, buy a ticket to an event that you love. Who knows who will be sitting next to you?
