Let’s take things one step at a time and start by analyzing:
Expectations - What Seniors Want
There comes a time in life when you’ve had enough of playing the game or experimenting. While the “fun factor” is usually on top of the priority list of each teenager, the same cannot be said about most seniors. After a certain age, people want respect and stability more than anyone else.
- Is this person emotionally mature enough for me?
- Can he or she put something new on the table while also providing the stability I need?
- Is the man or woman I’m dating able to engage in meaningful discussions rather than the usual superficial drivel associated with dating?
These are just a few examples of questions seniors will be asking themselves right from the beginning of a date and since we’re not talking about teenagers with practically no experience under their belt, it should be clear that a senior will see right through you if you’re trying to play a role.
What Seniors Have to Offer
Now that we’ve referred to some of the things seniors want when it comes to dating, let’s think about what they have to offer for a moment. First of all, rational thinking starts to win the battle against emotional thinking after a certain age and as a result, the dating behavior of a senior will fortunately be a lot more predictable.
Seniors are far less likely to play games, they know what they want and are well aware of the fact that high school and college are over. Does this mean that senior dating has to be boring? Of course not, it simply means that unlike younger people, seniors know when it’s time to act like a grownup.
The Art of Dating a Senior?
Don’t let the headline fool you, we’ve chosen it due to the fact that at an early age, a lot of people see dating as something a lot more complicated than it needs to be. There are hundreds or even thousands of books on the market which deal with issues such as:
- When to schedule the next date?
- What to wear?
- What to talk about?
… and the list could go on and on. When it comes to senior dating, it’s all a matter of being yourself. Don’t take our word for it, feel free to try all of the dating strategies out there on for size, only to find out that someone with quite a bit of experience on this planet can see right through you.
Forget about all of the tips you’ve come across when reading books or heard back in college, simplicity is what makes senior dating truly great. When both parties are mature enough to understand that being shallow can only get you so far, an excellent foundation is established right from the start. Why not build on it?
