ABOUT ONLINE DATING AFTER 50
Good psychological advice for online dating for people 50 plus is to act your age!
The genders are equal. Here is what I mean:
Acting your age means a lot of things. For me, a psychologist specializing in relationships…it means to take charge of your life. Take charge of your dating situation. Take charge of who you date.
Men usually make the first moves. This has been traditional in dating in our culture.
Well…This has gotten old. This doesn’t work anymore and should not work anymore. Yes…in online dating, the genders are equal. Women don’t need to wait for a guy to make the first move….then wait for the second move etc….You know the routine.
Here are my tips for starters (advice for men and women equally):
- Check out the profiles.
- Send a message to those who look interesting.
- Get more information about them through the instant message capability.
- Share photos, music, more information about our likes and dislikes.
- Suggest a phone chat.
