Dating and mating for the woman over 50


I'm not sure if it's because older women are seen as more interesting or self-assured, or (as I suspect) because men watch too many X-rated films centered on the younger man/older woman trope. Another downside is that when I match with someone, we are freed from face-to-face communication, which isn't always good.Many men act in ways I imagine they would if they were sitting across from me over dinner.



In the past year, I've dated two different men that I met on Tinder. Our first date was in a left-wing cooperative bookstore and cafe.That didn’t really bother Mia, since Josh’s personality more than made up for it.Still, he wasn’t her usual “type”—the type that was much younger than her, plus athletic and handsome to boot.On the one hand, my schedule automatically winnows the dating field – someone must I've met men on Tinder interested in both serious and casual relationships.

I would love to fall in love again – to once more experience that type of deep intimacy, with all the joy and pain that it entails.

Their relationship blossomed, but doubts crept up on both of them now and again.
