I tell them we get along well and I enjoy her kids very much. Which means you have lots of information-gathering to do.You should be talking to your girlfriend about her past. If she's blaming her exes, view it as a danger sign; it means you'll be the next target.A longer span of time before he’s reaching for the Viagra.Sure, you’ll have dinner dates, but also be ready for, say, a 10-mile hike one weekend followed by an indie rock concert the next.Also, a lifetime of love and loss has made many women distrustful and unwilling to get back into the dating game.Dating coaches take a more positive stance on dating after 60.If you see a beautiful, classy older woman, coming up to her while drinking a Coors light (with some spilled on your shirt) in your jeans, t-shirt and baseball hat, half-slurring a line that she’s heard dozens of times, is really not going to work for you. Be genteel, be confident (look her in the eyes, shoulders and back straight), be generous and be interested in HER, not just the fact that she’s a cougar.Topics of conversation will be a little less frivolous, she’ll want to know you’re her equal on at least some fronts.
We've been seeing each other for over a year in secret. Only recently have I been open about it with my brother, who is no fan of it, either.Dating someone younger—whether you’re two or three years his senior or are talking cougar territory—certainly can work (look at Eva Longoria and her 4-years younger beau), but being an “older woman” in a relationship does tend to come with certain perks and downfalls.If you want to make things work, be sure you can handle the following. Men reach their sexual prime in their twenties due to a spike in testosterone, while women typically reach theirs in their 30s and 40s.They explain that a change in mindset is essential for women over 60 who want to find romance.
In my recent interview with dating coach, David Wygant, he suggested that men are often the ones who lack confidence and suffer from fear of rejection.
Well, many women would argue that the same comment applies to dating after 60.
