Dating when you’re well in your retirement age isn’t surprising. With about 47.8 million people in the U.S. who are around 65 years and older, says the Census, there’s also been a rise in senior dating numbers. Here are a few tips about senior dating before you try it out:
Use a Professional Matchmaker
You want someone to connect with, someone you can sit down with over a cup of coffee and talk the day over. Someone who’s compatible with you. And it’s so much easier—not to say much more convenient as well—to simply engage the services of a matchmaker to help you find that special someone.
Not Willing to Pay?
Think of it this way: we spend a lot of money on education. You only need to look at how big a problem college loans are in this country to get an idea of how we much we spend on ensuring we’re successful at our future careers. But financial success is only one part of who we are. A huge part of our happiness often depends on the people in our lives. If you were that willing to spend a lot on education, why wouldn’t you do the same just for the chance of finding someone who’s going to make your life so much better? Why wouldn’t you want to take steps that would ensure you find that person who’s going to make you happy, who’s going to stand against the world with you, who’s going to make you feel like you aren’t alone in the desert anymore? If happiness amounts to a lot, then hiring a matchmaker to find someone you’re going to share your life with is a small price to pay for what you eventually get.
How a Matchmaker Can Help
A matchmaker saves you time and effort. You also get guidance and assistance on where to go for dates or hang out. If you’ve been out of touch from the dating world for a long time, engaging the services of a matchmaker can help you make the most out of your fun. You’re also sure to have fun. That’s often because matchmakers are careful about picking out dates who share common interests with you. At the very least, you know you’ll be spending time with someone who’s going to prove interesting especially if you work in the same field, had the same school or enjoy the same things like a passion for pin cushions, wine or long hikes.
