Getting back into the dating scene as an older person can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. With new technology, smartphones, and dating apps (ahem JustHookup), it’s never been easier to find
someone you’ll find interesting in no time at all. Maybe, you’re divorced or recently separated - that’s cool too. Mature hookups can be easy, safe, and fun with a little bit of extra effort.
Don’t expect to find love right away
If you’re getting back into dating after a long serious relationship or simply just looking for something fun , it’s important to keep in mind that you might not find love right away. It takes a while to get back into the vibe and feel of dating, don’t expect to be an instant hit. Also be mindful that not all folks are looking for love, but something much more casual in nature. Don’t be discouraged if at first you don’t find love, try, try again, and you shall succeed.
Try to enjoy the companionship, even if you’ve come out of a bad breakup or divorce
Let’s be honest, breakups suck, and divorces can be even worse. It can leave you feeling ways you never thought possible - torn, sad, angry, relieved, distraught, and hopeless all at the same damn time. It takes an average of 6 months to a year to get over a breakup, and 18 months to 2 years to fully get over a painful divorce. Be gentle with yourself when getting back into the dating scene.
The best thing to do when engaging in mature dating is to put your negative feelings aside, and simply enjoy the company of another mature individual looking for fun, friendship, or even something more. Something simple such as having a partner to walk with, eat with, or enjoy an occasional movie with is sometimes the most precious thing in life. Life can be lonely, so finding a reasonable and mature partner is a great thing.
Remember that sex drive may fluctuate
Everyone is human, and as we age (yes, unfortunately, we all age) things change. One thing can change for both men and women as they become more mature: their sex drives.
It’s not uncommon for mature women to crave more sex as they age. The combination of changing hormones, as well as perhaps a lowering of inhibitions, empowers older women to enjoy more frequent hookups and encounters on their schedule. Keep in mind when dating an older lady that she may particularly hot to trot.
What mature men can expect
For men, as they age, the sex drive diminishes. Older men may be less interested in sex and looking to engage in sexual activity less frequently than they may have as a young buck. The good news is that lower sex drive due to age is more or less treatable with proper diet, exercise, supplementation, and even hormone replacement therapy (although we recommend that you try natural options before turning to testosterone replacement therapy
Treating Low T in Men
The first thing to get right when you’re looking to increase your testosterone (T) levels, is your diet and exercise. Exercising (or sexercising) is recommended daily, but at least try to work out for a minimum of 3 hours per week. Diet is another very important factor in keeping your T levels top notch. Contrary to popular dietary propaganda butter, eggs, and red meat are all very healthy for you - especially men. Saturated fats, protein, and cholesterol found in eggs, red meat, and butter, help the body produce hormones - namely testosterone. So ladies, if you’re dating a mature man, make sure he’s eating steak and eggs. And if you want to give your body a kick, then look into some high potency Horny Goat Weed (Icariin) which you can pick up at locals such as Vitamin Shoppe.
