I’m Currently Dating Two Men – Is That Okay?

I never thought I would be in a position like this. Five years ago my husband of sixteen years and I mutually broke up because we decided it was no longer working which was hard to admit after all that time together. After a long stint in which I have been single and enjoying time to myself I now feel like I am ready to move on, start dating and look for love again with the right man. It was a hard decision to even decide to date again because I felt if after a sixteen year marriage it doesn’t work out then what hope do we have? But then I realised that we actually weren’t happy for almost half of those sixteen years.

I’m back trying to find new love and have had a few dilemmas along the way, including this one which I’ve decided to share with you.

Dating Two and a Half Men

I took to online dating not long ago after “peer pressure” from my friends. I write peer pressure in inverted commas since it didn’t take much persuading from my friends for me to agree that it was the best course of action. I’m now a fifty three year old woman and even though I still go out and socialise with friends quite often, it’s rare that I would come in contact with a man on a romantic level. I also feel like time is running out for me (sorry for those who are my age or older who would rightfully disagree) to find love again.

It didn’t take long after I signed up before I got talking to someone, maybe about a week. But that didn’t get anywhere. I soon learned that it takes patience with online dating, at least if you’re willing to take your time to find someone you want to have a serious future with.

Having said that, after about three weeks I got talking to someone I can only describe as a gentlemen at least by the way we conversed online. But just like London buses, another man came along typically on the same evening. I thought there could be no harm in talking to two men online. Besides, at this point it was just harmless conversation and getting to know them.

Things seemed to escalate quite fast with both of them, not on purpose but organically. They were both extremely nice but seemed to have slightly different personalities. For example they were both humorous but in opposing ways. After about two weeks of talking online as well as by text messages to both of these men they both asked to meet up within a few days of each other. When I was asked by the first gentlemen, of course I willingly agreed to meet up, not anticipating that there was a strong chance of the second gentlemen asking me sooner or later. But I live my life in the present and don’t like to think too far ahead. Perhaps this was a reason to alter that logic and way of living as of course he did ask to meet up and suddenly I saw myself in a position agreeing to meet up with two different men in the space of a few days.

The reason for the title “two and half men” was because I then began talking to yet ANOTHER man online. But there was no hint of meeting up which is why I counted that as “half”.

Hard Decision

I now have a hard decision to make after dating both of these men and both going exceptionally well. I am no nearer to deciding which one I would like to carry on dating so do I carry on dating them both? I would like to think that at some point there would be a factor which would push me towards one and not the other but how long that takes is the concerning thing.

Like I said before, I have never been in a position like this before so it’s not something I would say I’m proud of. But perhaps I am overthinking and exaggerating the seriousness of this. Maybe I should just embrace it while I can and enjoy the ride!

Right or Wrong?

So here’s my question to you. Was I right or wrong to agree to meet up with two different men? What would you have done if you were in a similar position?

The way I have been thinking about it is that I was always going to have to let at least one of these men down sooner or later. In that respect I guess it was wrong of me to supposedly lead one of them on. I hate having to let people down.

But having said that, you have to be selfish in life sometimes right? Plus it was still early days and so I had to meet up with them to get to know them better. If I had stopped talking to one of them sooner then I would have never have known what could have been. In my mind that would’ve been foolish.

How To Balance Work And Pleasure

Balancing work and pleasure can be a tricky task. Most of us are guilty of falling in to a set routine every single week. Before we know it a week turns in to a month and eventually a year passes by in the blink of an eye without having set aside time to enjoy our own life.
So how do we change that and find a balance between working and enjoying ourselves?

The older we get the quicker time seems to fly by. This is because we end up cruising in auto-pilot every day. We become so fixed in to a daily routine that we forget to pay ourselves back with time for ourselves.

Working 9 to 5, going to the gym, having dinner and going to bed is a very common example of a Monday to Friday lifestyle of plenty of seniors in this day and age or even for the younger generation for that matter. Snapping out of that routine can actually be very easy. It is just a case of making the effort to make new plans in the week and arranging to do something different. For example, going out for a midweek meal, going to the cinema or even meeting up with a friend for a catch up rather than going home after work and having the same dinner at home is a simple place to start.

Understandably, for some it’s a case of expense in that they don’t wish to spend unnecessary money during the week. But there’s no reason a midweek meal can’t be cheap and cheerful. For the sake of twenty pounds, it’s actually quite healthy to keep the mind active by going out for a meal and socializing. But what about those of us who are single and are looking for a partner to spend that time with?

When it comes to senior singles and relationships, many turn to online dating because it’s the only way for them to find other mature singles to spend their time with. But once they do arrange a date this is the start of a change in lifestyle. Pleasure begins to take a forward step and life can suddenly become a lot more exciting. Work no longer dictates the individual and Wednesday can become the new Friday. It’s hugely important for people of all ages, especially seniors to maintain this lifestyle when possible to remain mentally active and happy.

Don’t let work take over your life, experience some fun, meet new people and start smiling again. Visit www.seniordatingblog.com for more advice and tips on all things senior and dating.

Secrets to Maximum Sexual Performance

Unlike woman that can be non-sexuality aroused and still provide a great sex experience to her male partner, a man can not provide a great sex experience to his female partner if he’s not sexually aroused.

And many men and women make the mistake and think that a male is fully sexually aroused when he has a strong a firmer erection, but this is not the case.

And that is because many men suffer today from low erection quality that is caused by things that I’ll talk about in this article, but for now, I want you to understand that if you want to give her an amazing sexual experience you first need to make sure that you have a good erection. In this article, I’ll teach you everything that you need to learn about how to improve your erection quality as a man.

No matter how big your penis is if it does not achieve maximum hardness you might not use it as effectively as you would want to. As men grow older, erection quality becomes a very big concern to them. But what is erection quality? While erection quality is subjective, it generally refers to how hard your erection becomes. It is where the penis fills up with blood and becomes hard. Even if you are a professional lover, if you are worried about your penis, you will definitely suffer from low self-esteem. While penis size is a factor, the most important thing is the hardness. Without reaching a certain level of hardness penetrative sex might be impossible.

How to get a harder penis

If you want your penis to become harder, there are some steps that you should take to achieve this. These include taking supplements, lifestyle changes, and exercise.

Penile exercises to improve your erection quality

One of the greatest ways to improve the hardness of your penis is penile exercise. These exercises not only strengthen the skeletal muscles needed for a hard erection but also encourages blood to flow into the penis. Some of these exercises include

Jelging- This kind of penile exercise uses a motion to push blood in the penis thereby improving circulation resulting into a harder penis. There are a variety of exercises and they can be performed dry or wet.

Kegels- Kegels exercises are meant to strengthen the pelvic muscles that you need to have a strong erection. Kegels also have a variety of health benefits such as improved prostate health. They can also help to facilitate enlargements.

Towel raises- Towel raises can be used to strengthen the ligaments and the tendons associated with a healthy erection. The only equipment that you need for this exercise is a towel.

Apart from these, there are also a variety of herbal supplements in the market that can help you improve your erection quality. These supplements include green tea extract, Horney goat weed, Epunedum Sagtum, Yohimbine HCL and more. There are also some types of foods that can help you get a harder erection. These include coffee, spicy peppers, salmon, bananas, oysters, oatmeal and red wine

Lifestyle choices that can make your erection stronger

While having a larger penis is a good thing, a harder erection is even better. Apart from penis exercise, foods and supplements, there are also several lifestyle choices that can make your erection harder. Here are some of the things you can do to improve your erection quality.

  • Drop some pounds- When it comes to erection quality, obesity can negatively affect you. When you are obese you have lower levels of testosterone which is a very important hormone required for strong erections. Other diseases that you can suffer due to this include high blood pressure and diabetes. These diseases have also been noted to be closely related to erectile dysfunction. According to research, almost half of those who have diabetes become impotent.
  • Quit smoking- According to studies, smoking is one of the factors that contribute to erectile dysfunction. According to American Heart Association, smoking affects the arteries and causes a condition known as atherosclerosis that blocks blood flow and eventually causes circulatory problems. If you smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day, you have over 60% chance of developing erectile dysfunction. More so, over 15% of past smokers have experienced erectile dysfunction at one point in their life.
  • Avoid penile trauma- Problems with erectile dysfunction can also occur due to penile trauma. Since some sexual positions are usually riskier than others you can easily develop trauma. Penile trauma can cause internal bleeding and scar tissue that can eventually interfere with penile flexibility.
  • Have a good .night’s sleep- Averagely, while you are resting your penis is normally awake and gets an erection. Night time erections bring oxygenated blood into the penis and reenergize while also keeping it flexible.
  • Reduce stress- While stress is a normal part of every day’s life, sometimes it can end up affecting your penis. Although our bodies use stress to protect u from danger when it persists, it affects your erection quality and sex life. When you start feeling stressed, it’s important to have a positive attitude and accept to leave things the way they are. You can also learn how to meditate and use yoga to rid yourself of stress.
  • Exercise the whole of your body- Although exercising your penis can make it harder and longer, if you want to maximise your strength you should also exercise the rest of your body. According to studies, by just walking for 30 minutes a day you can improve your erection strength and also prevent erectile dysfunction. Regular exercise also improves your energy levels and makes you feel more relaxed and at peace. This will give you the best mood to have the best erection.
  • Be monogamous- Interestingly, being monogamous is very helpful when it comes to erectile dysfunction. Although this does not prevent contracting STDs it does assist you when it comes to the quality of erection. Being unfaithful to your partner can bring about the guilt that can eventually interfere with your erection.
  • Do not masturbate- It’s important to save your erections for when you are with your wife. If you masturbate a lot, you might end up interfering with your future erections especially when you are with your partner.
  • Use a device- There are devices that are designed to prevent blood from flowing out of the penis. Male enhancers are also some of the best devices meant to give you a harder and a bigger penis. If you do this, your body will realize the benefits and you will get the erections that you need.

Well, those are some of the secrets of male erection. It’s very important to know that the erection quality plays an important role when it comes to sex. It’s important to do exercises, eat the right food, use supplements, and make the best choices in life. By doing these, you will always enjoy the best erection.

Online Dating Changed My Life

Around this time last year I decided to finally give online dating a chance after days, months and even years of deliberation. At the tender age of 43 I thought I was destined to be single forever, with a barely existent social life as well. I’m now over the moon that I stumbled across the world of online dating and specifically a mature dating website for singles which was perfect for my situation.

Early Life

From a young age I had always been driven by money and focused purely on my job week after week until before I knew it half my life seemed to pass by in a flash. Suddenly I took a step back for a minute to evaluate what I was doing with my life and what sort of future I would have if I carried on down this same path. I certainly wouldn’t say I had a midlife crisis but I quickly realised that there were other priorities ahead of work and money that life has to offer which I still hadn’t witnessed yet.

I began to panic thinking that it was too late but I had plenty of reassurance from my family, work colleagues and seeing it for myself on TV that age is just a number. There’s nothing stopping a 43 year old man like me doing the same as a 25 year old man (to a degree at least).

Change

In the blink of an eye I began to change my ways, starting with a healthier lifestyle by eating cleaner and joining a gym.  I have quite an obsessive personality so once I have my mind set on something I pretty much go all out with it. So thankfully, the gym and eating well soon became a routine which wasn’t too hard to maintain. But I also needed to start meeting and socialising with people too. I was so caught up and involved with my job that I missed out on making friends outside of work. The only people I spoke to looking back now were colleagues where almost all the conversation was work related.

I still struggled to find the time to meet new people even with my change in lifestyle. Even though I now set aside time for the gym I still didn’t really communicate with many people there. Most people in the gym have headphones in and are there purely for the health benefits, which to be fair is the main reason for their existence. It was difficult even finding a place where I would have a chance of finding a friend or partner, never mind then talking to them and getting to know them. I don’t really have any hobbies other than football but again that isn’t the ideal hobby to find a girlfriend in most cases.

Online Dating

At my age it isn’t easy to just go out and meet a woman in a bar or club. In all honestly, I feel like I would have been judged by younger people if I was out in the same places as them. That’s why I eventually gave in and tried the online dating scene. For some reason I had always been against online dating but I didn’t really have a valid reason as to why. I think it was a pride thing. I thought I was above it. Let me tell you now that online dating is not something to be ashamed about at all now that I have witnessed the immense benefits it brings. I wish I had done it earlier!

One night after yet another routine day at work, I decided to log back on to my laptop and started searching for dating websites. For the older generation more specifically since I didn’t want to attract people much younger than me and looking for much different things. I was looking to settle down, perhaps start a family, although the thought of actually admitting that was a little scary for me to comprehend. But that’s when I came across a website called YourMatureDating.com.

I decided to sign up that night since I thought there was nothing to lose and it was free to sign up. I browsed some of the profiles on the site and I have to be honest that I did see some very nice women that caught my eye immediately. But at this point I was still a bit skeptical about what I was doing. I logged off soon after that but I had got the ball rolling at least and had the right intentions to find a partner.

A few nights later I went back on and this time I messaged one of the women that I liked the look and sound of by her profile. She had amazing eyes that caught my attention because of the slight sparkle they had. Her interests too excited me. She pretty much seemed to have the exact same past I had, in that her work dictated her life.

Today

Two years on from that initial message and I am now engaged to her. I decided to propose recently and thankfully for me she said yes! Never in a million years did I expect to fall in love so quickly and find someone so amazing and so similar to me. I wanted to share my story so others in my position weren’t afraid to do the same as me. I am so thankful for online dating and I truly believe there are thousands of other stories just like mine out there too.

Today I am ecstatic with the way my life has panned out. From experiencing the ways of business and working hard for money to now looking to start a family I feel like I have been incredibly fortunate.
