Atlanta dating over 50
So please, do yourself a favor, and choose those photos wisely.Make sure that your photos are a good representation of who you are: The way you dress, the places you’re photographed, your topless mirror selfies — these pictures will speak more about you than anything you may write on your bio.Sure, there are a lot of men on Tinder who are only after sex. Most of the time they’re the ones who have photos of themselves shirtless (regardless if they look good or not).Or a bio that says “I make 50 Shades of Grey seem as tame as the Teletubbies.” Do you swipe left or right? You swipe left if you don’t like them, and swipe right if you do. But it can also lead you to an interesting, attractive, like-minded person who’s interested in a committed relationship, if you’re looking for it. I’ve just turned 55, and I’m starting to find out that there’s not much of a difference between how I felt about myself when I was 35 and how I feel about myself now. I’ve never heard a kid say, “When I grow up, I want to be an old woman.” In fact, NOBODY wants to be an old woman; not even an older woman like me.But it doesn’t mean that the world sees me the same way. But let’s face it, being over 50 makes dating a little bit more challenging.
When I finally decided to give it a try, I deliberately kept an open mind, thinking that there may be people like me who are aware of Tinder’s hook-up reputation, yet are willing to try the app in the hope of connecting with someone.
Since then, speed dating has spread across the globe.
Most speed-dating events specify a certain cultural background, religion, or age group as a requirement to participate.
Speed dating first evolved over a decade ago, but it has become much more popular in recent years, especially among baby boomers and seniors.
Perhaps the increasing need for companionship is to blame, or maybe the adrenalin-pumping nature of the event makes it so attractive.First and foremost, speed dating eliminates pressure – pressure of giving out your phone number even when you don’t want to, pressure of avoiding awkward pauses in conversation, pressure of telling your life story to a stranger you just met.
