love dating and marriage bible study - Dating for middle aged singles

Dating sometimes seems like the only road out of the land of singles, and for the middle-aged, it's a road filled with potholes.

That's especially true for those who have been in physically, emotionally, or verbally abusive relationships.

Modern advertising tends to portray dating as something for the young and lovely, and many middle-aged people feel they don't measure up.

This can create some erotic distance and lead to some great physical intimacy.

However, it can also leave you bored and lonely on a Saturday night when your FWB is feeling need for space.

They may have neglected their physical appearance while devoting time to family and career.

They may interpret wrinkles, thinning hair, and other signs of aging as proof that they'll never attract a partner, which becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy.

Why are there so many guys asking for FWB now at our age? I think for one it is because it has become more socially acceptable.

2, many men are going through “the horny phase” of post divorce, the first 6 months after separation, and just want to have some physical intimacy to drown out the pain.

Don’t be mean about it, but just say that you appreciate the offer but would rather hold out for a potential relationship.

Maybe at a later time you will get a call back from that person when they have moved on to the next phase of healing after their divorce.

The problem is that with most casual dating there is a rush to intimacy.
