Dating When You Are 50+ In Baltimore

Jan 14, 2008
Some call this Senior Dating, Black Dating or over the hill dating in Baltimore.

I call it hysterical! As the owner of two online dating websites (one for Black Singles and one for Senior Singles) AND a black dating service (I give dating events) you would think I could at least find some datable men. YOU would be wrong!

It had been almost two years since my husband's death before I even considered "dating" again. The gentleman was really nice, could hold a conversation but was not really my type. Now mind you, my type has been all over the place so I don't have a type per se. However, he was not "it."

That indefinable "it" that lets you know up front just how far to take this thing. So, for me, right now I am taking everything very slowly. Being a widow does have its advantage. One of the advantages is it will buy me time. So even when I KNOW this is going absolutely no where, most men have the common sense and tact not to rush or push me. Great for me. With the slim pickings here in Baltimore, slow is the only way to go. I have been just friends with a man only to find out six months down the road that I really REALLY like this guy. So my method is to take my time, feel the gentleman out and let things unfold as they may. But fellas Please help a sister out!

While I will admit I have been a little spoiled (my husband dressed his self and me very well and was always slim), I am not yet ready to deal with massive beer bellies, nose or heaven forbid ear hairs! Nor am I willing to be seen in public with some one who has on plaids with prints (wtf) or squeaky leather shoes, let alone sandals with crusty feet. What is going ON?

OK so, Yes, I do judge all my friends on their character, ability to hold a great conversation (not the one sided conversation where he talks and I yawn), along with a good sense of humor.

A women's erogenous zone has always been between her ears, most women don't realize that until their innate "hotness" has worn off. AND the man of their choice now is sporting one of those beer bellies. To take me to dinner a few times does not constitute an invitation to spend the night (What? You want to stay here?) I need just a little more than that. I can assist with the dressing as needed, but please get rid of those PLAIDS AND PRINTS! A man who can talk and listen is what I am seeking. A great sense of humor and adventure are always a plus. These are truly the golden years. I can do this alone, but would rather be with YOU!

If this is you, hit me on my website. Ladies, happy hunting and good luck to you!
