Do you remember what dating was like when you were in your teens? Lack of transportation, money, and privacy. Meeting intimidating parents for the first time. Unable to get into bars and nightclubs.

    Romantic Tips for Enjoying Nature Together

    One of the best ways to foster romance is to remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of civilization with an outdoor adventure. There are amazing options for outdoor dates, weekends, and destination vacations to fit all budgets. Let’s start with the immediately achievable and move up to the more aspirational options. 

      While not every outdoor adventure may be doable for you and your budget, nature itself is free. Be inventive, and you and your sweetheart can begin enjoying the outdoors today!

          Special Considerations For New Senior Couples

          If you’re excited about the possibilities of mature dating, you should be. It’s an exciting time in your life. There are some things you should consider for both you and your new love interest. 

          Financial Considerations

          During the early stages of a relationship, discussions of finances could be awkward. It’s important for your new partner to be comfortable. Proposing an expensive vacation could backfire on you, even if you intend to pay for most or all of the adventure. 

          Until you’re ready to discuss your financial security with the other person, propose modest dates. It’s important to note that you should never discuss your personal financial information with someone who you just met on the site and the financial discussions we’re referring to should probably be general in nature. 


          We’re all getting older and some of us have developed issues with our mobility, strength, and visual acuity. If you propose something that requires rigorous levels of fitness, make sure that your partner is able to handle what’s required. Broach the discussion delicately, “Have you ever tried scuba diving?” Or, “Do you have any travel restrictions?” It’s also important for you to know your physical limitations. Do not allow yourself to be talked into anything that could put you at risk. 


          They say until you meet someone face-to-face, you don’t really know them. Be very wary of grand date plans where your partner asks for you to send a deposit or requests your financial information. Romance scams prey on people who believe they’ve established a relationship with the scammer. This type of fraud is remarkably effective, and the perpetrators can be extremely convincing. 


          Many seniors have active, healthy relationships with their siblings, children, and even their parents. Your partner or you may decide to involve your family in your plans. But there’s an etiquette to involving family members on the date. Here are some tips that could be helpful:

            Discussing family with your partner can be a delicate matter. Be frank but gentle about your expectations and boundaries.
