Finding love over 50, not just dating
I’m not much for programs, but I think Dr. Kirschners’ Love in 90 Days is worth considering if you have made finding a life partner a priority. Not just, “Gosh, I hope I meet somebody, someday”. If you are serious about making it a personal mission- working the numbers game, as she says- there is excellent advice in this interview. I do not endorse or have any financial relationship with Dr. Kirschner.
We discuss the challenges of dating over 45, the technology of love and why all are obstacles worth overcoming when you consider that 1 in 3 marriages are the result of an online match.
Dating in midlife requires tech tools
She recommends that you register with Match.com and at least one smaller boutique dating service specifically for the 50-plus crowd, such as Ourtime.com. Armed with these dating sites you strive to be actively dating 3 prospects at all times. Dates are for “ruling out, not ruling in”, she says. In this episode, she shares the 3 questions to ask yourself when deciding if another date with a person is worth your time. Man, she’s tough. But you are on a mission, tick-tock, tick-tock.
I love her enthusiasm when she says, “There is a feast of possibilities” in the dating pool and we live in a time of “Abundant Love”.
This is quite the opposite of what I hear from my single male and female friends -especially women. But… I do not know anyone who is uber-focused on the process, lining up dates for coffee, lunch, dinners, etc…
So, please let me know how it goes for you out there in the dating world.
