Baby boomers – Finding Love The Second Time Around

Elvis Elvis

Baby Boomers are finding “love the second time around”, to be a rather “normal” part of our lives. I am also a boomer that has joined the “second time around” love merry-go-round. The time has arrived, and you’ve been asked out on a date! Now the kaleidoscope of emotions hit us….

For most baby boomers it has been quite a while since we’ve had to get ourselves ready for a “date”. Here we are in our 50′s, a broken marriage, kids are gone and we are feeling emotions, we haven’t felt in a long time.

Nervousness, butterflies, excitement and anticipation, to name a few!

Discover what baby boomers can use to ease through the strange, awkward and often confusing world of dating in your 50′s and 60′s.

Enjoy a woman’s perspective on finding love the second time around.

Here are some of my great tips to share with you, as I have “been there”, “done that”, and don’t want to do it again!

THE FIRST DATE…

The safest first date is to meet either for lunch or dinner. I find it is easier to have a good conversation over a great meal. This gives you plenty of time for conversation (good, or bad) before you eat, during your meal and over dessert.

After a few hours spent in a restaurant, with your date, you will know whether you want to continue the evening or politely end the date. Choosing a concert or movie, certainly is not the place to get to know anyone on your first date.

WHAT TO WEAR…

This just might be the time, to do a little make-over. On yourself, as well as as your closet. The first thing to do…get rid of the “mommy jeans”.

This isn’t going to work! You are in your 50′s, not 80′s. You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on a fashionable pair of pants. If pants, aren’t your weapon of choice (depending on the restaurant), just be sure you find clothes that flatter your body style and are in fashion!

This might be the opportunity to try that new haircut you’ve been dying to try! A few little beauty and fashion tips could even make you look 10 years younger!

THE CONVERSATION…

I always like to start the conversation with telling my date, what I’m passionate about, my goals and my dreams. Through this website, you have all gotten to know a little bit about me. The one thing that you do know, I love living life to it’s fullest and enjoying all of LIfe’s Pleasures.

Remember, nearly all the people you meet in this age bracket, probably have kids, or even grandkids. So this is a great topic for discussion as well.

Something is so special about finding love the second time around.

A great piece of advice…be yourself! You are presenting yourself to a stranger, but let him meet, the real you! The “real you” will one day come out, so why not let him/her get to know you now.

Are you stuck on the next topic of conversation? Try…art, music, sports, travel. Keep away from topics of religion or politics, but I’m sure you already know that. Actually, that’s a no-brainer.

The Golden Rule…do not bring up your Ex or your dates Ex. We all have them, and for most of us baby boomers, divorce memories are not really a pleasant topic.

Keep old relationships in the past. You are both together now for the same reason…to start afresh! You are finding love the second time around.

Baby Boomers Beware…if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. People are programed to exaggerate (even just a little). If in question…ask the question. With this woman’s boomer attitude, it’s never a problem for me to be very upfront. What have you got to loose?

You have taken the first step, by putting yourself out there and making yourself available.

Dating is meant to be an enjoyable experience. Make sure you don’t settle for the first person you date, or shows some interest in you. Never settle!

There are many lonely hearts out there looking for love the second time around. Take time, find the person in your life, that makes your “heart skip a beat.”
