Many women have had success with online dating if they approach it with a positive attitude.(In fact, according to a study from Bowling Green State University, people over 60 are the fastest-growing age group to use online dating.) Other women have met good men at church or in community organizations, or just while out walking in the park.
Many women over 60 find that their sense of confidence is broken and feel disillusioned by men and marriage.
Often the conversation about dating over 60 focuses on the idea that women are at an inherent disadvantage with too many eligible women our age chasing too few good men.
While this is true, men our age are often struggling with the same types of worries, doubts and negative feelings that women might have.
Finding love after 60 is a major topic of discussion and curiosity for women in the Sixty and Me community – and with good reason.
Many women over 60 are embarking on a new stage of life with different relationship statuses than were common in our parents’ era. Others became widows or simply chose to never to marry in the first place.We are no longer looking for a relationship with the goal of having children and building a “home” together.
