Dating Advice for the Ages

Dating and aging don't have to by synonymous with fear, frustration and bewilderment. As we age, we trade certain things for others (like smooth skin for wisdom), and the positive side is, we also begin to learn about ourselves. As a result, we know what we want in a partner better than we ever have before, we know better how to go about finding that partner (at least we know where not to look), and we learn how to say no to the wrong people easier and more quickly than in our youth. That doesn't mean that dating and aging don't come with some obstacles and for that, take a look at the articles below to help with questions and advice about dating and relationships as we forge ahead in our solar cycles.

Dating can vary drastically from one age group to the next. To a thirty-something single, dating may be a frantic attempt to find the right person with whom they can start a family, while someone in their sixties may view dating more as a means of obtaining companionship than a way of finding a lifelong partner. Thus, not all dating advice can be applied universally across every age group. The purpose of this page is to offer age-specific dating advice that you will find applicable to your current situation.
