Over 50 dating could be a challenge, especially if you just decided to have go at it. Are there any quick facts that could help you out? us in a discussion with dating coach, Lisa Copelandwho is here to share some little known facts that just might ease your mind.
Enjoy the show! Today we are going to be inspired by Lisa Copeland who is a professional dating coach. She works specifically with women over 50 to help them attract quality men and find love in their life. Welcome, Lisa. Our community talks about dating all the time.
I would love to chat with you about some of the stereotypes that we encounter when dating over There are some things that might surprise us about getting involved in the dating scene, and you are an expert in this field. You deal with women all the time, so help us understand the reality of over 50 dating. Over 50 dating is about fun and choice. I think that the best thing about over 50 dating is that you have a choice about the role a man can hold in your life.
He could be a friend, or he could be a husband. That is not true. We get focused on a couple of men that we think we like online, and they may say that they are looking for younger women, but men look at all women. I think another surprise is that there are a lot of guys out there who want to find relationships. I remember talking once to another dating coach, David Wygant.
They want magic, too. They want love in their life. They do. Actually, I think men are more into relationships than many women. Women have more emotional connections in their lives with friends and family, while the only way a man has an emotional connection, or a safe place to talk about his stuff, is with a woman. This is how men try you out.
Next on our list of surprising things about over 50 dating is the of younger men who are interested in older women. Believe it or not, they think that we are low maintenance, which cracks me up. So, yes, they consider us much lower maintenance than women their own age. For women who would like a sexual partner — and there are a lot of women who are actually more sexually orientated than men — these younger guys are great. It was a working place where people of all ages would hang out. We did a session where they asked me to talk about my business, and it surprised me that the room was full of young guys.
What I sensed was a genuine attraction to someone who was doing something with their live. I told them about my business and the challenges that I face. I was real about the issues. The point is, you can attract people of any age by just being yourself and being interesting. That was okay. It was a surprise to me that I could still be attractive to people just for who I was. Do you find that, too? I know you have younger friends. Going back to our list of surprises about over 50 dating, something we should mention is the sexual dysfunction that happens both for women and for men.
That is shocking, mostly because of what the media and the movies have shown us. It is interesting to note that some men have become better lovers because of the dysfunctions that are happening. This is all due to drugs and other types of things that are now available for them to take. So I think that is one of the biggest surprises for a lot of women.
You just have to take advantage of the negatives and find other ways to show affection, to be close. You should remember that this is a time in your life when you can have fun. You can go out there and have fun. Get to know new and interesting men.
Put them in your life in all different slots, not just as boyfriend or husband. The other thing is, this is a stage in our lives when we can be kind of stuck in our habits. You can have different relationships. That is the biggest surprise of all. That opportunity to choose the where on the spectrum of relationships you want to be.
Life is short, and we need to have friends who are doing the things we love to do and have fun doing them. I think women over 50 are easy to be around because we give up worrying about what people think about us. We should know what we like out of life, and what types of people make us laugh. I think we share ourselves with women, but when we get around men, we give our power up because we want them to like us. That is still a leftover feeling from when we were young and needed approval. That has to do with a lot of deep work I do with women — coming back to love themselves and feeling empowered within themselves.
We often give that power up, which puts limitations to our personality. We are amazing at this age, and we are beautiful inside and out. I think that is what younger men find appealing — there is a certain beauty inside that reflects in our glow. We talked about this in another interview, the relationship that we have with ourselves colors every other relationship. I find it great that as a coach you start out with bringing out that self-love in women.
We love you, Lisa. Thank you so much for being here.
