Older singles are different from the younger crowd. They're more focused on what they want out of a relationship, and more realistic about what they want from a partner.
In fact, mid-life men ranked "good looks" 5th on a list of what they were looking for in a date. So what ARE the more important qualities? A good personality, common interests, intelligence and moral values.
But if you're over 45 and still a little nervous about getting out and hunting for your soul mate, here's one more reason to go for it: It's good for you! According to the experts, the excitement of dating fires up the brain in a good way, and older daters get new social connections even if the romance doesn't pan out
And both of those are real pluses for your health and well-being.
