Dating has quite changed in the recent years as compared to the dating norms of let’s say about a decade ago. Our parents tell us that dating in their times was perhaps a milkshake or a movie followed by dinner with the parents. A lot has changed and the new age and technology has changed our views and perceptions about the dating game. Previously, dating was done to be able to find a partner for long term relations, but nowadays, dating has become far more casual and there is no age bracket involved. You can see a 25-year-old man with a 41-year-old woman or a 54-year-old man with a 22-year-old girl. Even when an over 50 couple is at the bar, they won’t get a strange look as if they are past their dating days. The new age is far more open to every age and every gender, and that has given people a far more comfortable dating experience. Dating has changed over the years for the mature as well, and here’s a series of accounts with people over 50 regarding their experiences with niche dating.
“My wife died when I was 53. We did not have children, and life had been quite slow and dull for me after her death. Then a relative introduced me to singleandmature.com and I got back into the dating pool. Initially it was all new and strange for me as I never had known any other woman than my wife of 26 years and I thought it was stupid to me to look for a date at my age, but then I began to love the company and realized that there are so many people looking exactly for what I did. I met single and mature women online, many who had the same interests as me. One woman I met, is an avid art lover like me, and I am going on my fourth date with her this weekend. It has been good. I have made friends, and I am open to find love now as well.” – Thomas Pete, 56.
“My dating life has had been quite exciting. I have experimented and have had my share of kinky experiences as well. When I wanted to try being with a younger man, I went online and found cougar dating, and I say this shamelessly, I have never been more sexually satisfied. I found so many young men online who wanted to be with me, a woman over 50, and enjoy casual dating and sex. It may seem strange and very much fiction, but a mature woman can easily have a good dating life.” – Josie James, 52.
“I never thought at a mature age I can have amazing sex with great women. I am 53 years old and enjoy my share of dates regularly that lead to casual sex with consent. I have never been married or in a long-term relation, I enjoy my life but was worried if my lifestyle would cater to my mature age or not. Then I discovered one night stands and found out that many women are interested in what I want, casual no strings attached sex. The website gave me a safe outlet to be myself, and I am truly living my life right now.” – Paul Jeremy, 53.
