Dating, Again After 10 Years

I re-entered the dating world with great trepidation. I did not want to be those older men that are trolling dating applications for younger women. I have daughters, and even if I did not, I find these men creepy and would not want to be associated with them on any measure. I have been divorced for quite a while now, and since I had custody of my daughters, I kind of exited the world to raise them. I had no thought of dating and only saw old girlfriends every once in a while. No one wants to be single at our age, so they move on quickly looking for those attachments using Skout app on skoutorganic. Even now that my girls are grown with their own families, I do not want to rush into anything mainly because I feel so awkward meeting people.

My girls are getting pushy about me meeting someone. I actually am okay alone and do not want my children hooking me up. That is the only thing weirder than dating at this point. It is different at this age and dating. In your younger years, there are many things to plot and plan about life that bring people together as a team. At this age, most people are accomplished, so it is not about the wonderment of having dreams with someone and achieving them like it is when people are young, dating and deciding who they will spend their lives with. For me, I have been penned up so long with raising the girls that I kind of want to just meet many people and their personalities. I want to familiarize myself to what is out there and with being without responsibility for anyone except myself for the most part.

Because of this, I am looking for a group experience of sorts, so I can get opinions on this stage of life from other people with my same circumstances without the commitment of dating and things like which date means what. Imagine asking your darling daughters which date should I traditionally be intimate with the person that I am dating. I simply refuse, so I tried the dating applications, and felt just like the old tired trolls that I despise. After searching for any alternative that could suit me, my daughters told me that there were dating apps that separate people by their peer groups among other things.

She said that Skout was one these sites, and I have not had to try another one. It is great because it has a social media-type setting where I am able to find compatible friends through posting on topics and chatting. This is basically how people meet in real life, and actually, this app is real life. It is simply a platform that makes the experience easier and safer for many, and for me, less awkward. It is the best and only dating advice that I can proudly say that I have taken from my daughters, so far.
