After juggling two children and a demanding job, my first marriage ended in divorce. I had given it some hard thinking, but my relationship with my husband, which began when we were both in college, really couldn't make it for the long haul. So I opted out. About a year later, I encountered a friendly, good-looking neighbor, who had just recently become single.
Howard became my second husband and the love of my life. That made it all the more crushing when he died of a brain tumor two years into our marriage. Thus began a long period of mourning, in which I helped usher my two daughters into adulthood, and devoted more attention to my career. But I was awfully lonely.
It didn't help that I went straight home from work every night and stayed in on weekends.
The do's and don'ts of dating after 50
Ronni Berke My friends would gently nudge me: Oddly, I'm a very social person. Why was I cutting myself off from the world? My reasoning was this: If I don't do anything, don't "get out there," nothing bad will happen. As in no disappointment, no heartbreak. There's one problem with this line of thinking. Yes, if you don't do anything, nothing bad happens.
However, nothing good happens, either. So, seven years after my husband's death, I took the plunge. I signed up for online dating and even went to a speed dating session at a local bar. I approached online dating very seriously, enlisting help from close friends for my profile.
It needed a dash of wit, a sprinkling of sass and an attractive photo. But not too much wit, and not too much sass. As for the photo: There's no such thing as too attractive. After everything posted, I got a flood of responses from men. Not because I'm an exceptional catch, but because those who've been on the sites for a while tend to pounce on a new candidate. There were men who lived in other states and countries.

70 per cent of single women want Christian men to ‘man up’ and ask them out
If the guy is not a born-again Christian, scratch him off your list. Marriage must be built on a foundation of trust. If you marry a guy who was sleeping around before your wedding, you can be sure he will be sleeping around after your wedding.
There are many solid Christian men who experienced marital failure years ago. Second marriages can be very happy.
Any man who will not pay for his past mistakes or support children from a previous marriage is not going to treat you responsibly. Never marry a man who refuses to get help for his addiction.
Insist that he get professional help and walk away.
50 Questions to Ask Before Falling in Love - Christian Dating, Singles
I have a female friend who realized after she married her boyfriend that he had no plans to find steady work. He had devised a great strategy: What I want is the authentic woman. Almost any woman can become the ideal culture stereotype of what Hollywood told me was desirable just as guys can work toward becoming the alpha male. But it is the actual person underneath that heavy role that I seek -- the human being. If I wanted the act, there are plenty who are willing to play it.
But no one can play the authentic woman. What do I, as a man, want? Here are a few things I cooked up, but I can elaborate if needed. I want to be challenged, grow and feel I am making a difference. I want a relationship absent of games and power struggles and full of unconditional love and respect.
I want to be loved for who I am, not for who I could or should be. I want to be able to make a woman feel like a woman and have that feeling reciprocated. I want to find a balance between progressive genderless equality and traditional gender roles.
I want it to be ok to be chivalrous. I want to hold the door open for you. I want my life to mean something. I want to live a life of perfect health, abundant wealth and showerings of love. I want to follow my heart and live my dreams.
50 Questions to Ask Before Falling in Love
I want to marry the woman of my dreams and have wonderful, healthy and happy children together. I want to express myself through my writings and be a mentor for those coming behind me. I want to be inspired on a daily basis and in turn I want to use this to inspire others. I want to be grateful for all that is in my life and I want to be kind and generous to those that pass through my life.
I want to be myself. I think this obviously is different for each person out there For me, I want a woman who knows how to be a lady and generally acts like that in public. In private, I want her to feel comfortable and be open and trusting.
In bed I like a girl who is confident and a little wild. I've been in a relationship for about two years now my longest relationshipand I would say the biggest thing I want in a woman is someone who is truly my counterpart and equal. I need someone who I can completely rely on to take care of everything from things around the house and finances to relationship things.Key Points About Dating Men Over 40 (or 50)
I'm a pretty independent person and with my career goals need someone who is also very independent, but is also very affectionate. I feel most girls I have dated are overly emotional. Having feelings and emotions are completely normal and I don't like that guys are often stereotyped as not having feelings.
We do, we just deal with them differently. For me, I've learned to recognize my emotions but not let them control me.
I think guys are more wired to fix things and seek solutions immediately. I find that women often want to focus more on feeling better. I know it sounds harsh, but ultimately how important is feeling better versus fixing the situation? Along that line, a girl shouldn't let a guy get away with crap. Call him out on his BS, but do so in a loving way.
So if a guy does something or says something stupid just kindly say, honey, I know you mean well or whatever the case may bebut it really would be better if you would do it this way, because that will get you what you actually want on this. What I would like in a woman is not to play games and to be logical, reasonable, fun and no drama I would like to be attracted to her and to put time and effort into seeing me as I would do the same for her.
Life is hard as it is, and I want less uphill battles, not more.
