Love at second sight playing the midlife dating game
When it comes to dating and romance now, what differences would a single Dad in his 50s encounter compared to his single son in his 20s?
In other words, how might it go when a dad and his son sit down to openly compare notes about what's happening with the women in their lives?
It's a consistently divisive issue, and I'm surprised how stubbornly contentious it remains. Having run into several issues over the years, I am still debating the pros and cons of those choices. If you are over 30 and/or divorced, you have probably had your heart broken, and so has the person you are dating.
But what does that mean for your new, budding, happy, "perfect" relationship?
The ridiculous checklist, stored in the back of my head forever, filled with all the admirable characteristics I’ve ever wanted in a soul mate, slowly began to evaporate the first time we kissed.

This is about reflecting who you are inside and allowing that to show to the world and other people around you.
Let the world see how amazing you are on the outside and your amazing character will do the rest.

Just as I think I have been stood up, a lone chap arrives, clad in a lime-green anorak, looking anxious and slighter in stature than I was expecting.
