Dating for older folks
Along with key review factors, this compensation may impact how and where sites appear on the page (including, for example, the order in which they appear).
Dating does not include listings for all dating sites.
What advice would you give people over 50 who are looking for someone? We’ve all seen women who are 50 who look 60, or men who are 70 who look 50.
Age really isn’t a good indicator of compatibility. Most of us over the age of 50 have baggage, and lots of it. I’ve been married two times before, but I don’t hate my exes and I don’t hate men in general.
I know I’m in my sixties, too, but I feel so much younger than that. Orr: I guess I look at it as a status symbol of sorts. I loved being with such a beautiful, young woman; it was a definite ego boost.

Culbreth: People generally don’t want to be saddled with someone unhealthy—and most of us subconsciously associate getting older with mounting health problems. They’re facing the same sort of issues I am, like impending retirement. Culbreth: Being around the same age is especially important to baby boomers because shared culture is so important to them. Fitzpatrick: Older men might have more problems in the bedroom department, but once they pop that little blue pill, everybody’s happy. Block: Any most of the time, healthy, physically active men can continue to achieve erections into old age without medical intervention.
Genetically, we’re wired to pick mates who are good “specimens.” It’s a primal urge. Camfield: There are many benefits to dating someone in my age bracket. Boomers want to be with someone who remembers the same things they do from the past. According to the National Institute of Health, only between 15 percent and 25 percent of men over 65 have erectile dysfunction severe enough to preclude intercourse.
People want to date someone fun, and many of us think someone younger is going to be more fun.
Plus, Boomers are known as “zoomers” because they do so much these days—so most have no problem keeping up with someone ten or even twenty years their junior. I’ve had several serious relationships with men more than ten years younger than I am, and I’m currently dating a man who’s 52. I don’t want to date a man in his sixties—that just seems much too old for me.
