As a midlifer, you may have the opportunity to enter the dating world at the same time your adult kids do. That could be a cool thing, or it can cause problems. Here are some tips for finding love in a world when your kids are trying to do the same.
Sure, being a cougar is great if that's what you're into, but when your kids are dating the same people you are, it gets weird. When you're out with your adult child and see a potential single guy, for example, avoid saying things like, "Is he for you or me?"
Some midlifers find it empowering to date younger people, and if that's you, great. But show some respect for your children and stay out of their potential date pool as much as you can.
