During the Date

  • Be Yourself: When you meet the person whom you would like to date, let him/her know what you actually are, but that does not mean that you reveal all your weaknesses at the very first meeting. Just be yourself and do not try to go overboard in order to impress her/him. Have fun and do not be uptight, but at the same time do not reveal much about yourself. True you are here to make a new friend and probably even meet your life partner, but as much as possible try and learn more about the other person.
  • No Children Please: This is one important dating tip for men as well as women. If you as well as your date, have children as well as grandchildren, do not spend maximum part of your dream date talking about them. Just mention them in passing and that's it. Talk about each other, talk about your likes and dislike, talk something romantic, but do not keep going on and on about your children and grandchildren. Sorry to say but it turns pretty boring. You are above 50, hence you have more experiences than a 15 years old, thus talk about your life experiences.
  • Also No Ex: While out on a date, some people are bound to talk about their failed relationships or about their late partners. Don't do that, specially women, because a man does not like to hear about his date's ex partners relationships. Leave them out as much as possible.
These tips are sure to help you. To fall in love once again even after you reach 50, is a wonderful thing and these tips are there to help you do that. Keep an open mind and have fun and enjoy the evening.
