Retirees have a leg up on everyone else when it comes to learning to put things in perspective, and usually that includes the ability to laugh at themselves. If you are a dating retiree or are ready to take the leap of faith and go out on dates, you've experienced more than most of the younger generations, and if you haven't "seen it all," you've seen enough to take a good or bad date in stride.
Awkwardness, uncontrollable laughter and embarrassing moments are all part of dating at any age. Being ready to NOT act your age and to feel like a kid again when there's chemistry and intimacy is an even better part of dating, young or old.
Have fun and be ready to laugh at or even during absolutely bad dates while enjoying the differences of two people who don't match but can make the best of it. And the good dates? As toe-curling as ever.
