When you’re dating in your 40s, there are pleasant surprises in store.Sure, we’re more experienced than in our 20s, but we’re more open to new things, meeting new people, and reinventing ourselves. But according to TODAY’s “This is 50” survey results, only 18 percent of single people in their 50s said they were dating.On the positive side, the age 50-plus daters seem to be pretty darn smart when choosing a date-mate.When you’re ‘youngish’, free and single, meeting someone new is easier than you might think.The old saying that life begins at 40 is no longer just a reassuring cliché.While dating in your 40s might seem daunting, there are actually many advantages to being flirtatious in your fifth decade.
Not only is it great for browsing classifieds (which is where I found not only a great end table set, but the wonderful home where I now live), but it’s also fantastic for other nuggets of human interest, like personals, jobs, and humor.
More than 30 percent don’t even know where to begin and nearly 30 percent say they find it too stressful (think back to those sweaty palms and awkward conversations.) For more than 40 percent of respondents, other priorities are simply more important, and nearly one-quarter say it’s just too difficult to date when you’re 50-plus.
That’s true whether you’re 16 or 56, but more than 40 percent don’t believe there is anyone “out there” to date.
