dating terms

There is really no age limit when it comes to dating. Men are especially advantaged because they remain active most of their lives hence they tend to be ready and willing to date again even at over 60. Dating over 60 might not seem much of a challenge for many men, but whereas it does have a good side, there is also a bad side to think about. When you know what to expect both on the negative and positive, you will be better prepared to handle the relationship.

The good

One good thing about a man who is over 60 is that he is principled and more stable in every aspect of life. This means that he is not too worried about failed relationships and can handle practically any breakup easily. It makes it possible for such a man to keep trying until he meets a good woman he can work out a relationship with.

Men over 60 are usually financially stable. They have toiled in younger ages and they are now enjoying the fruits of their labor in retirement possibly. This means that such a man will not spend a sleepless night worrying about how much a date will cost when they have dinner at a favorite spot.

Men over 60 are more mature and this makes them attractive, even for younger women. They are less likely to be complicated and women like this about them. They are able to handle everything in a mature way and are less likely to cheat as younger men do even when they are in good relationships.

They have more time in their hands to commit to dating because they may not have any professional commitment. To the dating man it means more time hunting for the perfect woman and enough time to enjoy her company.

The bad

So much is expected from a man dating over 60 in terms of behavior. They are expected to behave in a certain way and anything short of that could end up getting them misjudged as bad people or cheap ones for that matter. It therefore might be harder to develop a serious relationship for men with certain personalities.

Men over 60 get hunted especially by younger women for all the wrong reasons such as financial freedom rather than love. It is harder for them to tell the genuine women from those with intentions that are not very genuine. They remain targets for all the bad reasons just because they are financially stable and in need of companionship.

People over 60 may no longer be as physically energetic as they used to be. This can pose challenges when they date younger women who are highly active in bed. You may get along with a woman very well, but dissatisfaction can ruin the relationship. Good advice to counter this would be to date women closer to your age and a woman with whom you have very similar needs and expectations.
