50 dating again
Jennifer's, Samantha's and John's concerns are common, because according to the U. Census Bureau, 19.3 million Americans get divorced each year, and many of them date and eventually remarry.
Perhaps you share their concerns, as you're also wondering how you can reenter the dating world after divorce — and do so according to God's standards. Divorce is the death of the dreams you had when you committed yourself "for better or for worse." As a Christian, you can't simply separate from your spouse one day and hit the dating field the next.
And it's no longer stigmatized to say you met on Match.com, JDate, Our Time or Plenty of Fish. Knowing what site to go to can help but you also may just have to experiment with a few different sites to see which one feels best and seems like it has kindred spirits.
People often tell me they want different things now that they're older. Perhaps they were with an addict so this time they just want to be with someone who is mellow (maybe even boring); or, perhaps they had been with someone who didn't "meet" them as a partner and now they want to hold out for their intellectual equal. I find that people over 50 tend to believe that no one would possibly be interested in them because they perceive themselves to be "old." The good news is 50 is the new 30!
If you start dating prematurely, you could be hurting — rather than honoring — those you date.
