Here is some help for the baby boomer single men seeking some dating tips for the modern singles world.

It wasn’t just Freud who posited “What do women want?” Baby boomer single men in their 50s and 60s are now facing a modern dating world where the relationships desired are a bit different than those they sought out when they were in their 20s.

Which raises the question not just “What do women want?” but “What do baby boomer women want in a relationship now?”

When you are giving your senior woman what she wants in her inner heart, then you are the man who wins her entire heart.

1. Be kind.

Once you are into your 50s and older, then you have already started to notice the need for more friends in your life. But you’ve probably also noticed the greater need for mutual support.

Maybe you have been the one to wrangle up a group of friends to help the recently widowed church member take care of her yard.

A mature woman wants a man who is kind and caring more than she wants the cocky guy in his 30s, whom she now just finds tedious and immature.

“She doesn’t seek you to take care

of her like a pampered princess.”

2. Be interesting.

While she does want a man with a kind heart demonstrated in his gestures, behaviors and habits, she doesn’t want a boring pushover. Midlife women still want life to be interesting.

Perhaps she herself is now retired and enjoying traveling. She seeks a man who would make for a fun and interesting companion in her life now.

If you’re setting up a dating profile on OurTime or another online dating site, talk about your life experiences and travels to catch a mature woman’s interest.

3. Be financially viable.

Single women over 50 are no longer looking for a sugar daddy prince to sweep them off of their feet and provide for them financially at the 100 percent level that some women in their 20s and 30s still are.

Yes, she wants you to be financially stable and viable enough that you have socked away some assets into your retirement savings and own your own home.

But since you two are not looking to start a family like the 20-somethings are, she doesn’t seek you take care of her like a pampered princess.

Fellas, what do think is the most important attribute a senior man can have to win the heart of a baby boomer lady?
