If you’re recently divorced or single and back on the dating scene, there are definitely things you are looking for in a man now that perhaps never really mattered to you before. You’ve changed, girl. There is just some stuff you expect and other stuff you absolutely won’t tolerate anymore.

We’ve grown and evolved, and we have set our standards high. We aren’t putting up with less than we deserve anymore. Here are 10 things women in their 50’s are looking for in a man. But wait. This list isn’t just for women over 50. Many women of all ages expect the same things. 

The Truth

Seriously. Don’t lie. Don’t lie on your dating profile; we’re gonna find out the truth. Don’t lie about your habits, your life, or any of it. What’s the point? The truth always reveals itself, and you end up looking like an *ss. Just be honest in the beginning and save yourself a lot of trouble and embarrassment, not to mention time. 

Romance and Affection

Flowers, chocolates, little kisses on the neck, cute text messages. You get the idea. Is this too much to ask for? Is romance dead? Women still love all those things, even if we are in our 50s. Or wait, no matter what age we are! We love all these romantic gestures.

Financial Stability

Look, we don’t need you to be a millionaire, but we also don’t need or want to support or bail you out of financial difficulty. If you don’t have your finances in order by this stage of the game, chances are, the rest of your life is a mess too!

Good Hygiene

You know, brush your teeth, wear deodorant, comb your hair, wear clean clothes. Take care of yourself. Why this even has to be mentioned is pathetic, but it does. If you don’t care about yourself, why should anyone else?

Good Listening Skills

We’d love to find a man who is truly interested in what we have to say, no matter how little or silly it is, and who actively engages in conversation—someone who cares about how our day really was and is keen to hear all about it.

Have a Good Sense of Humor

Life is way too short to take everything seriously. A good sense of humor is a must. It’s important to laugh at ridiculous things, even ourselves if need be. We want our man to be super chill and laugh easily. Being uptight is exhausting. 

Dog Lover – Animal Lover

Maybe it’s just me, but you must love dogs. Well, animals in general, really. Dogs, cats, monkeys, whatever. There’s a lot to be said about a man who loves and cares for other creatures besides himself. When we show love and compassion to animals, it says a lot about who we are. 

Mental Stimulation

You don’t have to be Rubik’s cube smart or have the IQ of a genius, but have some sort of cerebral activity so we can carry on a good conversation. Women love mental stimulation. It’s exciting and sexy. We love a man we can sit and chat with long into the evening. 

Be Kind

You don’t need a reason to be kind. Be kind always and help people whenever you can. That’s the sign of a truly beautiful human being—one who has empathy, compassion, and kindness. 

Respect

Respect for yourself, for me, for others, the planet. Everything. Respect truly is one of the best qualities any person can have. I mean, who doesn’t want to be treated with respect anyway?
